WE HAD A WONDERFUL WEEK at VBS - MONUMENTAL - Celebrating God's Greatness.
The Kid's went off-road for a Monumental adventure featuring the colorful canyons and sunbaked trails of the southwest. By exploring God's awesomeness, kids formed a rock-solid faith for the road ahead. It's Monumental - Celebrating God's Greatness.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WHO WORKED TO PUT TOGETHER THIS AMAZING EXPERIENCE. The kids raised over $500 for their Kid to Kid mission project which will provide school supplies on Native American Reservations in the Southwest.
SHORT ATTENTION SPAN - Luke 12:32-40 - August 7
Please join us at 10:30 am on Sunday morning In-Person or on YouTube, or hear sermons later on our website. This is Communion Sunday. Please bring items to donate to Loaves and Fishes in recognition of communion with God.
We have been hearing for years how the attention span of the average person is growing shorter. We take in information in such small quantities that it becomes more and more challenging to stay patient and focused if the information takes longer to “download.” It is reasonable to assume this shortening attention span affects our relationship with God. Will we patiently await God’s guidance or will we run ahead and do whatever we want because we can’t stay focused?
In the Scripture lesson, Jesus was instructing his followers about how to carry out the mission. His main point was to stay ready. Our attention span is part of that readiness. We have to train ourselves, and allow God to train us, to be patient and aware so that we can be ready for whatever God calls us to do.
Blessings, Pastor Tom
