Just a note to remind you that I am really counting on you to share in the events of our church’s Equipping Weekend, which begins on Friday, September 9 and goes through Sunday, September 11, 2011.
In the Welcome Center is a little booklet “God’s New People” that I think you will find extremely helpful in your own quest for new life in Christ and for a deeper faith in our day.
For the last few weeks, our church has been deeply involved in getting ready for this Equipping Weekend. A number of groups already have been at work, and we are in high hopes that this will be one of the most meaningful experiences we have had in our church in a long time.
Again, I want to urge you to attend all of the sessions. In addition to Teaching Sessions on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning, we will have a dinner on Friday evening, a light breakfast in the Fellowship Hall Saturday morning, men’s and women’s meeting on Saturday, and a dinner meeting Saturday evening. The nursery will be in operation during the entire weekend, and the children will be cared for in sessions planned just for them. Plan to be present at each of the sessions.
This indeed may prove to be one of the most meaningful experiences of your life. I want you to join me in prayer that this will truly bring new life to our congregation.
