Have you had your visit from Pastor Mike yet?

Your have probably heard the expression, "A penny for your thoughts," well, during my visit when asked what 1 liked most about our church, 1 said, "The people"! But later, I thought - there is so much. more:

Just walking into our sanctuary with its majestic structure, beautiful stained glass windows, the recent hanging of the ever-burning "Christ light" and the wooden cross to remind us what Jesus did for us, not to forget to mention the many friendly faces, I know I am in God's House.

The special music this summer has been beautiful and I am looking forward to the return of our wonderful chancel choir, directed by Betty Jo McElroy.

Most important, the messages by Pastor Mike with his enjoyable humorous way, help us to understand and remember God's will for us. One of his messages emphasized that God loves all of us and wants to hear from us and walk with him, sowing seeds along the way, spreading The Word.

If you haven't been talking to God for awhile, come to church and be motivated, strengthened, and leave feeling closer to Him in many, many ways throughout the coming days. I guarantee it!

Hope to see you Sunday! !
