Summer Is Almost Over…

This past Sunday was great. Many of you were back in town after a summers worth of vacation and it seems that most of us are gearing up for the school year. I know most of you love summer – but personally I prefer autumn. Here’s why:

1) College Football Begins – For those of us who cheer for the bulldawgs it is a sacred time.

2) It’s Cooler – need I say more.

3) I Don’t Have To Mow My Lawn – I truly hate cutting grass.

4) Autumn Gets People Back Into Their Routine – Which Is A Great Time To Invite People To Church.

On September 9 we will be a year old, and to celebrate all that God has done and to¬†emphasize our desire to connect with the community we are having a huge end of the summer worship service on August 17. The band will be back to lead worship, kids connection will be back on track (pre-school and older kids), small groups are gearing up and our student ministry is taking a giant leap forward. We’re going to seize this day as an opportunity to invite as many people as possible to our worship service. Here is the plan: 1) a mission team from TN will be here to help publicize the event. It is very difficult for most of you to do this type of mission work during the work week – so they are going to help us out. We would love to have you join us – just let us know which day you are available. 2) we’re mailing out 20,000 – 40,000 postcards inviting people to our worship service. August 17 kicks off our “Mythbusters” sermon series and we want people to hear about it. 3) We’re asking that everyone pray for this worship service – I really believe that this will act as a catalyst into 2009, 4) Finally, we’re asking that each of you (us) invite neighbors, friends or family to come and experience River Hills Church.

I am so thankful to be your pastor and I’m excited about what God is doing and going to do in the future. Have a great week.
