Last weekend I started a new series that is a continuation of our DAVID series from earlier this year. This weekend we are going to look at when David was moving the Ark of the Covenant and how that didn’t go so well. David became afraid of God as a result. Have you ever been afraid of God… thinking that he was mad at you, because of something you did? The good news of the Gospel is that he loves us and wants to be in right relationship with us. Sometimes that takes a little effort on our part… to make things right, to press in, and to draw close in worship. He is never far off, but our hearts can be.
Starting Line begins this Sunday! If you would like to get connected at our church, no matter how long you have been attending, check out Starting Line. It’s a two-week series where you will have the opportunity to meet some of our staff, hear our history, discuss our future vision, ask questions, get connected and make some friends along the way. Sessions will be in the Lodge during the 11:15A service on the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of each month (August 13th & 20th). No need to register. Please attend both sessions.
I want to say a huge THANK YOU for your generosity toward our Back to School Fest. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to provide school supplies and backpacks to 600 kids AND our friends from Shoes4theShoeless fitted 770 kids with new shoes!
Our Summer Splash Pool Party is THIS Sunday, August 13th, 6:30P at the Adventure Reef Water Park (Kettering Rec Center). There will be hot dogs and ice cream!

(If you registered by last Sunday, you can pick up your free Vineyard sunglasses this weekend after each service!)
