As we move into those hot, hot August nights we are moving into a time of great enthusiasm and excitement in our church with our upcoming The Story series. This Sunday is our pre-event kick off rally following worship in the fellowship hall. If you have not had a chance to pick up your books and such it will all be available for pick up this Sunday. Keep up those prayers as we are in our final stretch of preparations.
- Day 33: Pray for each person to have a servant’s heart.
- Day 34: Praise God for the hearts that will be changed by this study.
- Day 35: Ask God to powerfully use The Story to impact our community.
- Day 36: Pray that our love of God will grow.
- Day 37: Ask God to maintain unity among leaders and participants.
- Day 38: Pray for lasting, eternal fruit.
- Day 39: Pray that guests to our church will be warmly welcomed.
- Day 40: Pray that The Story will be a defining experience in our church’s journey.

I am looking forward to kicking off a new study series on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 PM – Sips, Snacks and Study as an opportunity to take a deeper look at the scriptures used for Sunday morning sermons. First meeting will be on Tuesday, August 18 at Zitos Pizza next to Vons on Santa Ana Canyon and Imperial. Bring a Bible and your copy of The Story.
The sanctuary will be a great place to take a break from the heat and join us in worship. Our worship team will be focusing on Jeremiah 29 and the times we might not always get what we want but what we need instead.
