I have an announcement to make: “Summer is over!” Summer can be a very hectic season for our lives. If you are like me, getting back into the routine can be nice. As we get back into that routine, I want to offer you a couple opportunities.
First off, we have some new small groups starting. These small groups are topical and have a beginning and ending point, usually over 8 to 10 weeks. We have lots of existing groups as well. They are a great way to get to know other people in the church, which is so important for the health of our body and us as individuals. Check out your options and sign up on our website: www.emmettnaz.org. The groups start next week so sign up today!
Second, you have probably heard about an exciting new addition to our children’s ministry called Big City Studio. This is the theme for our Sunday morning elementary program (9:30am to 12noon). Through your donations, we have re-formatted the gym into a pretty cool set. The kids are having a great time and learning about God at the same time. We are looking for your help with three things: prayer for our kids, volunteers to serve on a rotation basis, and more kids. If you have neighbor kids who need a ride, we do have a van ministry that can help. Help us make a difference in the life of a kid!
Last but not least, the church board has been working on something that is very exciting… actually two things… but allow me to focus on one for now. We have begun a project that with your help will have a huge impact on our community. Please plan to be here on the morning of Sunday, September 28th. We will be sharing what this project is all about. If you have to miss, please let us know so that we can catch you up. God is so good!
I am so excited to be part of all that God is doing in our “valley of plenty”. Thank you for your investment in His Kingdom. Keep up the great work as we grow in the Lord together.
