Summer time instills in us a desire to get our physical bodies out of our physical complacency and into a healthy lifestyle including eating right, exercise, fresh air and sunshine. So as we enter into these next few months of summer, how much more important is it to see that you and the Church spiritually move from a state of complacency into a state of health and wellness. To accomplish this I am going to be presenting a Bible study on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. on the Bible where we will explore the stories of the Bible and learn how to apply their lessons to our lives. I will also be presenting a summer sermon series on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. on Creating a Healthy Church. A healthy church involves the same components as a healthy physical lifestyle such as…
- Eating right – Good solid Biblical inspiration and instruction provided on Sunday mornings at 9 and 10:30 a.m. as well as digging deeper into your own personal Bible study and prayer.
- Exercise – Providing ministries that are led by competent, compassionate individuals with a heart for the Lord and for the church that reach out to those who need Christ.
- Fresh Air – Evaluating each and every ministry of the church, looking for ways that we can bring in fresh ideas, fresh purpose and vision as to better serve each other and reach our community for Christ.
- Sonshine – Creating, in all aspects of the church, an authentic atmosphere of worship that will bring us together prepared to corporately worship “The Son”. Worship starts long before you enter the church facility, and it is not inclusive to music. Worship includes every aspect of the spiritual experience preparing the heart and mind to receive what you will receive.
It is time to switch off coast mode, put aside traditions, and step out of our comfort zone, experiencing new and fresh ideas to reach today’s world for the cause of Christ. I pray that you will be in prayer for me and for Glenville, and I will be praying for you, as we take steps to make our Church a healthier place to worship and to serve. God bless each and every one of you.
