On behalf of our family, I would like to express our gratitude to each of you for the wonderful welcome we had on Sunday, July 3 and to the United Methodist Women for hosting the delicious breakfast. We are most appreciative as well for the generous gift basket filled with gift cards and surprises. Your hospitality and kindness is a blessing. We have enjoyed meeting you in these first four weeks and thank you for your patience in helping us learn your names. To help us to get to know you better, Barbara and I will be hosting a series of weekly small group “Meet & Greets” in our home at 75 Sea Shell Drive for August and September, beginning on Tuesday, August 2 at 6:30 pm. We’ll have light hors d’oeuvres. The sign-up sheets are in the church narthex.
We are excited to welcome two new members in July, CJ Carrell and Carolyn Duncan, to our church who joined on July 17. They have been participating at our church in the past year and we are pleased to welcome them officially as our newest members.
I am preaching a series of messages on some of the great men and women of faith from the Old Testament. I look forward to seeing you in Sunday school and Divine Worship this coming Sunday!
Blessings in Christ,
