We have been in a message series entitled, “The Good Life” for the past several weeks. I am excited that my good friend Barry James will be speaking this weekend on generosity. Barry and his wife Joyanna have been part of our church family for nearly two decades. We have vacationed together and gone on mission trips together… I know firsthand that Barry lives and breathes the message he is going to share with us this weekend.
Barry is President and Portfolio Manager with James Investment Research, and President of the James Advantage Funds. He was also chosen as the “Dayton Business Leader of the Year” in 2007 by the Dayton Business Journal. I am very excited for you to hear him teach this weekend!
Also this weekend, our friends Adam and Kelly Vaughan will be with us! We are hosting a reception for them this Saturday, September 10 from 3-5 P in our Family Center. Light refreshments will be served. I hope you can join us! For more information on their ministry in Costa Rica, check out their website at www.thebackwardsmissionaries.com.
Our Creative Arts room is now open on Thursday evenings through October 20 at 7 P for anyone who wants to come and paint. There will be no instruction just encouragement from other artists. Bring your own supplies and subject material or we can provide you with supplies for a $5 charge per session.
Join us Sunday mornings in the Lodge at 8A for a time of intercession for His kingdom to manifest, here and now. All are welcome! Questions? Email Aurora at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next weekend I will be doing a “State of the Church” message regarding our vision and mission, giving you a scorecard of how we have been doing this year meeting our goals for the year. We will also have information available regarding all of our various groups that are launching between September 20 through the 28th. There really is something for everyone. Men’s and women’s groups, home groups, care groups, a new parenting group and more! Stay tuned!
I hope to see you at our Open Heavens night of worship, this Sunday, September 11 at 7P. Open Heavens is a great opportunity for us to enjoy an extended time of worship. The atmosphere is faith-filled, with anticipation and expectation. Often times there are prophetic words that are shared, and words of knowledge that ignite times of ministry. I hope you can join us! Sorry, (but there will be no childcare available for this Open Heavens.)
