“There Is a Time for…” A Time for Prayer: I have heard it said before that in order to evaluate the health of a church, do not look at their participation in worship instead look at their participation in prayer. I am thankful for the many ways that our congregation is engaged in prayer! We have a men’s group and a ladies group that both meet on Tuesday mornings to pray for our church, and those on our list of concern. At Christmas time I was given a framed page of 117 people that agreed to pray daily for the church and me, and that was all collected on one Sunday morning…talk about being humbled! As a pastor, I want to keep prayer on the forefront of our minds as a church, and I am excited about that being our focus this week. This week’s message will be more of a teaching on how we can engage more deeply with God through prayer. To take it a step further, I will be shortening the message and other elements of the service at Sunday’s 5pm Casual Service in order to create a dedicated time of praying in groups for our community and our congregation. A Time to Celebrate: This Palm Sunday we are adding an additional twist. Our Sunday morning schedule will be as normal that day, but for our 5pm Casual Service we will include a cookout and an Easter Egg Hunt. We are excited about the opportunity to enjoy a fun gathering together, but also to welcome those from our community to be a part of our experience. There are two ways that you can help out: we need folks from our congregation to donate pre-filled plastic eggs (no chocolate) to be used in the Easter Egg Hunt, and these can be dropped off between now and that Sunday; additionally for those planning to attend the service and meal, please bring a cold side or a dessert to share! A Time to Keep Pushing: The Sunday before last we had our high attendance number for the new 5pm Service with 93. This past Sunday we had our low attendance number for that time slot with 24. Both numbers are important to report for honesty and reflection. The first shows our potential, the second shows that we have not quite “hit our groove” yet in terms of regular participation. Here is what I believe though – I believe that it is a beautiful service that is perfectly positioned to reach new people in our community, and draw in those that have drifted away from the church. It is going to take a lot of hard work to get it fully up and running, so I want to continue to encourage you to support it through your prayers and by inviting people to come and check it out. Important Note: Due to Family Promise needing the Fellowship Hall this Sunday evening, we will hold the 5pm Casual Service in the New Beginnings Classroom. We will break into other spaces for the prayer portion, and hopefully we will be able to accommodate everyone in the smaller space for just this week.  --Anthony<><
