Mary's Message: November 18, 2021

If you missed worshipping with us on Sunday, you missed a nice prayer walk around our campus. We prayed for the ministry of the church, for the leadership, for volunteers, for the congregation, the day school, and for the people that come here for dance, scouts, and other programs. The children led the way as they spotted the next sign to go to, and several volunteers led the prayer portions. We prayed that God would make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. 

As we continue to come out of the other side of the pandemic, we will continue to have many challenges. How do we reach our community? How do we minister to the families that come here week after week? How do we draw people back or into our ministries? And more questions than I can really fathom. But God is a God of miracles. God made a way in the desert when there was no way, leading by pillars of fire and smoke. God parts waters. God rose from the dead. God will see us through this to the other side. 

I am so very thankful to see how God continues to use this congregation to bless others. We collected 12 food baskets for families at Burrus Elementary. The children packed 10 shoebox Christmas presents for seniors in nursing homes. As we wrap up our Sunday School lessons on Esau and Jacob, we will pack 12 Blessing Bags on Sunday to bless individuals who are hungry and in need.  

The ministry of our small church continues to make a big difference in the lives of others. Be on the lookout for opportunities in the coming weeks for how you can help others. I am working with the new Wraparound Specialist at Burrus to come up with our Angel Tree Wish List, and we will once again be collecting shoebox presents for the seniors in nursing homes around us.  

As you walk around our campus or even your neighborhood, I encourage you to pray for the ministry of the church, how it might change and grow, and how it can continue to impact others for generations to come. Come back home and join us in person and maybe invite someone to join you. You might be surprised at how receptive they are. 

Mary
