Great Times Together
I hope that you are all having a great week, walking in the freedom “of forgetting what is behind.”
I want to publicly thank the Presuttis, Raders, Schoolers and Clevengers for all they did to make Saturday’s Fall Fest such a great time for our church family. All of those kids running around, slept well that night, I am sure! It was fantastic to spend some time enjoying the relationships that God has blessed us within our church community.
In case you haven’t noticed, the number of ALBC kids has been growing and I cannot tell you how excited it makes me to see all of these young ones growing up in the context of a church family. As was mentioned at the recent core meeting, we will be adding a new Grace Place class in November in order to accommodate this. If you would be interested in teaching any of these age groups: K-1st, 2nd-3rd, or 4th-6th grade, please contact Justina Morrow at firstname.lastname@example.org and she can fill you in on what that would entail. Dismissing the kids during the last song has been working well, however when they leave by that front side door, it is a bit of a distraction to the worship that it going on. Let’s have the kids now all leave through the back door of the recital hall from here on out.
Because we love all of these kids so much, I would like to just take a moment to make a safety request. Let’s please keep our kids in the building until we are ready to leave church. We want to do all in our power to ensure that the unthinkable does not happen by keeping our kids from playing in the parking lot after church. Each one of these little ones is so precious.
Speaking of precious kids, CONGRATULATIONS to first-time grandparents, Peter and MaryLouise Blauert upon the arrival of their grandson, Theodore Sidney Blauert, on Tuesday afternoon! May God bless this little guy!
Men, I look forward to the time of prayer that we will have together this Saturday morning at 9 a.m. at Buckman’s Inc. (105 Airport Road, Pottstown 19464). There is something unifying and uplifting about setting aside time to bring our needs and thanksgiving to God’s throne together.
Our “Engage Life” series on Philippians has been impacting me as I prepare and study for it. I hope that as we journey through this book together, you are also gaining a deeper picture of the joy that walking with Jesus can hold for you if you will lay hold of it.
See you on Sunday,
