From Your Pastor, May 2010

25th April 2010 by Administrator

Lynda and I have been receiving post cards and letters saying “Save this date.”

“Save this date” is referring to a wedding date to be held many months from when the card was received.

Well, “save this date” of September 17-19, 2010.  Please note it is not a wedding I am asking you to mark your calendar for but for our “Lay Renewal Weekend.”  We are asking that all the church family plan to be a part of this exciting weekend.

This description of what  a Lay Renewal Weekend is comes from the overview document sent to me.

“The Lay Renewal Weekend is the Awakening step for the Journey and is an opportunity to re-awaken the church to its purpose and passion. It takes believers, wherever they are in their spiritual journey and refreshes them with a godly perspective of their role in service to others. This is an inward journey that renews and restores the love of Christ to those who have drifted away from their commitment. This weekend also brings the church body together as a family.”

Acts 3:19 Repent and return…, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.

Many leaders of this church have been praying for the right time to have this special emphasis in our church family and now is the time.  Bruce and Kathy Byce will be our lay coordinators for this weekend adventure.  There are two other dates that you need to be aware of and of which you need to make plans to be a part.

1. Wednesday, April 28, 2010 at 6:45 pm for Prayer meeting when the overview of the weekend will be given by the team leaders who are from Columbia, SC.

2. Saturday, July 24, 2010 from 8:30-11:30 am to do training for various teams that will help make the weekend a success.

Please do whatever it takes to make this a priority for you and your whole family.  Children and youth will also be involved in the weekend activities.

God bless you all,

Bill
