From the Desk of the Lay Director – Oct. 2020

Hello Community,

I pray you are all doing well!! We are doing well ourselves and really enjoying this cool fall weather. It is a very nice break from the 100 degree temperature. Hopefully, we will have a long fall and winter doesn’t come roaring in soon. However, we really do need rain. The sprinkler system is keeping my grass semi-green, but the field behind my house is almost just dirt. Pray for rain!!

The scripture I would like to share this month is 2 Corinthians: 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.

This is the scripture that Della Taylor used as her scripture for the Kairos Outside last weekend. I was the kitchen team leader and we had 9 women attend. It was a great retreat and God showed up and touched these ladies in a special way. It was really a challenge with the Covid-19 restrictions, and all the room changes that had to be made at the last minute to meet those requirements and to make everything special for the ladies, but we made it through.

The women’s walk October 22nd through the 25th has been postponed. A new date will be set at the next board meeting. The men’s walk that is scheduled for November 19th through the 22nd is on schedule. The Lay Director will not be able to work the walk due to the scheduling problems, but Mark Meurer and I with possibly one other previous lay director will pull it together. Several of the men scheduled to work also have conflicts, so if you would like to help with this walk, please call Mark or I so we can get the team filled. Due to the Covid restrictions we will be social distancing and following proper protocols to keep everyone safe. Please get you pilgrims scheduled. Please pray for this walk.

Our next Community Meeting will be Thursday October 1st at Agape United Methodist Church. 1215 Slide Road. No meal will be served. Please come at 7pm and let’s worship together.
