Pastor Dave’s Notes
Hi Everyone! I pray that the final few weeks of summer will be blessed as we prepare for the coming of cooler weather, and a return to the normalcy that accompanies the school year. Over the past few days I have spent considerable time praying for the church, for each of you individually, and for myself as we head toward the fall and the kick-off of the various ministries we engage in during the school year.

October-November Sermon Series on The End Times
As we continue the series through the Gospel of Matthew we approach Jesus’ teaching on the End Times, commonly referred to as “The Olivet Discourse.” (Matthew 24-25). These teachings invite a serious look at the state of the world and an examination of our personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. In addition, the coming events ought to spur us into action as evangelical believers, for the population of people who do not know Jesus Christ as their Savior will face Him as their judge and be sentenced to eternal condemnation. This series of messages will be a mix of information and passion as we rejoice in our position in Christ and mourn the lost outside of Christ.
With Paul I State:
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. (Philippians 1:3-5
For people like me who don’t see you and don’t go to your church, but love hearing from you; I have no idea where your church is! Maybe you could put something with your church picture or things coming up that tells us the name of the church and where it is. Just a suggestion.
