Hello COMMUNITY family and friends ---
This is a great weekend and is off to a huge start, but the fact is you have got to be part of it. Are you ready? Do you have place to serve? Well, here is the breakdown of whats up, whats coming and how to get involved.
back2school preparation is in full swing. Friday and Saturday are the "pack the bus" event where we go to WalMart in Martinsville asking people to donate school supplies. All our partner churches have locations they are doing "pack the bus". Pray for Success!!!! Saturday from 9am until noon at all 6 churches is back2school registration, and this is the last opportunity for students to register. Pass the word to others. Volunteers are needed as well for "pack the bus" and registration. On Monday morning we will be UNpacking the buses at our warehouse in uptown Martinsville. Volunteers are needed there at 9am. Also we need volunteers in our clothes closet next week. Continue to buys socks and donate kids clothes for our event. We do want to say a big THANK YOU to the Monogram Foundation here locally as they are providing a grant to help with this awesome outreach.
This Sunday is also BAPTISM at The Community at the end of our worship time. It is always a great time to celebrate what God has done. If you have not signed up to be baptized, there is still time. Email the church at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We continue our GIVE A LITTLE BIT series and will be discussing how we use the resources God has given us. A big THANK YOU to all the people who have taken the 21 DAY GIVING CHALLENGE, and each of you are being prayed for so that you see God's blessings as you faithfully give as God guides.
I will see you this weekend, and may each of us demonstrate the love of God to our community by sharing with one person at a time. See you soon!
With GOD as my guide,
Pastor Michael Harrison
