Labor Day Weekend “Kicks-off” FALL at Washington Street

I love Labor Day weekend! What could be a better way to honor all of those who work day in and day out all year long to make our country what it is… what could be a better way to celebrate our jobs and thank God for the jobs we have… than to take the day off?! I think its a great idea and we should do it more often (hear that, bosses?) And Sunday morning was such a special time to be together as a church family. There seemed to be a special air of excitement about! Labor Day weekend always brings visitors our way… some newcomers and many old friends who come to town just for a short visit. I’m told that unless you’re a dove, it’s a great time to be in Lincoln County! I wholeheartedly agree. And with the “kick-off” of College football also this weekend, you can just tell that Fall is around the corner… although the temperature has yet to dip low enough for it to truly feel like Football season.

With Fall comes more opportunities for new beginnings at church as well.
Our Share Groups got off to a great “kick-off” Sunday night. Thank you to all of our group leaders for the wonderful hosting job they did and for all the scrumptuous ice cream which was served! I am looking forward to our first Share Group meeting THIS Sunday night. With that, the time of our services are again being adjusted to accomodate people’s schedules.
Beginning THIS Sunday, the evening group will meet at 5pm for a devotional and prayer in the auditorium. Most of our groups will be meeting Sunday evenings at 6pm, including a Share Group for parents of teens in the youth group meeting which will meet at the building.

Along these lines, let me remind you of the challenge I made to us all on Sunday. Let’s be on the lookout for ways that we can help encourage and “connect” folks… maybe folks who have been sick, out of town, or otherwise not in worship. Make a special effort this week to drop them a note, give them a call or just drop by to let them know that they are missed. Over the next few weeks on Sunday nights, we’ll be exploring ways we can help more people “connect” to our church family and most importantly to God! Thank you again for letting me serve in such a loving, church family!
