July 6 – August 10

screenshot-13-e1502216713344.pngMessage: It’s no secret that the cost of education in our society is high. Tuition increases that outpace inflation and crippling student debt are far too common. But how much is too much? Join us this Saturday morning at 11am as we explore the most valuable education one can acquire with a sermon entitled, “The Value of Christian Education” We will host a number of special features this Sabbath including teacher dedication, boarding academy send off, and music by our very own orchestra.

Announcement: Just a reminder that our Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) program starts on August 16th at 10am. Please invite any young mothers you know to attend. Trish Boyce and Anna Vyhmeister have done a great job putting together a program. Also, if anyone is willing to help with childcare we could definitely use more volunteers! Check out the advertisement that will be going in the paper: Screenshot (14)

Prayer: We continue to praise God and pray for the recovery of Jerry Cohen after surgery. We are also praying for all our families orienting themselves to a new year of school.

Things Happening: So much has happened since July 6th that it’s impossible to recount it all here. Suffice it to say that it was a fantastic end to a great summer. Here are some of the highlights that we caught on camera.

Have you seen the latest progress on our new playground? It has been quite a venture to put it together. A big thank you to everyone who helped put it together! We are hoping to have it completed this weekend when we pour the ground cover at our Men’s Prayer Breakfast starting at 9am this Sunday, August 13th.

Personal: I hope you had a chance to vacation and spend some time in the sun this summer. We really enjoyed a trip to Florida and Minister’s meetings at Cohutta. 20170731_201313
