October Newsletter ~ Message from Pastor Tim Woodard

Matthew 22:9

“Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.”

 

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 October is a busy month for many of us. As we look forward to beautiful autumn weather, there are weddings to attend, school functions, the coveted wiener roasts and the many events that take place in our community. It is also a busy time at our church. Youth activities are being planned. Your staff and church leaders are working to prepare for Charge Conference on Sunday, October 16th. There are also two events coming up that not only offer a time for all of us to celebrate together, they provide an excellent opportunity to invite others into our church.

 Saturday, October 22nd  is the Church Bazaar, which includes a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings for only $10 (kids-$5). There will be rooms full of crafts, attic treasures and home-made goodies for sale. On the same weekend, the a cappella quartet “Blend”, who we have come to know and love, will be performing two concerts in our sanctuary. The Saturday night performance will feature many of their 50’s Doo- Wop songs, and a few country hits that will appeal to a wide audience. Of course, they always include Gospel songs and their own witness to their faith in Jesus Christ. They will also be providing the music for our Sunday worship the next morning. Both performances will include a free-will offering. Hopefully they will be here early enough on Saturday to do a couple of promo tunes during the Bazaar.

 If you normally invite your friends to the Bazaar for a great meal and fun shopping, be sure to also invite them to hear Blend on Saturday and/or Sunday. If you know someone who might enjoy the Saturday night concert, don’t forget to tell them about the Bazaar and invite them to worship with us on Sunday. Evangelism doesn’t get any easier than that.

 Each Sunday our worship bulletin includes a line that reminds us that we are all ambassadors for Christ. The upcoming events our church provides are much like serving appetizers; a prelude to the invitation God extends to all God’s children to abundant and eternal life. So go into the streets and invite everyone you find to the banquet of joy and grace. Imagine how many lives could be changed because of your simple invitations. Spread the Word!

 

     Blessings of grace, peace and inspiration to you all;

     Your fellow ambassador for Christ,

             Pastor Tim
