Welcome to July! I’m sitting here wondering where June went. With the District Convention and our short family vacation in Houston, the month seemed to flash by.

The District Convention in San Marcos was mostly uneventful. Our District President, Rev. Michael Newman was re-elected as well as our Area A Vice-President, Rev. Allan Eckert. I was also installed as the Circuit Visitor for Circuit 7. This will be my last term as Circuit Visitor and I have reached the end of the term limit for an elected office in our District. If you have any questions or would like a complete synopsis of the convention, feel free to ask Rich Lee or myself and we can fill you in further. There is also a printed summary of the convention and all that went on including the election results available in the church office.

July is a big month with Vacation Bible School. We are still looking for volunteers to step up in order for us to be able to have a fully functioning event, so please consider volunteering. Sign up on the board for all of the days, part of the days or even one day. If you don’t see a blank that fits you, make you own spot and put your name down. We will find a spot for you.

From July 12-16, 6-8:30 p.m. we will gather with all of our children and children from the community to learn and have fun in God’s Wonder Lab around the theme of “Jesus does the impossible”. The key Bible verse for this years VBS is Psalm 98:1. “He has done marvelous things!”.

Lesson 1: Jesus’ First Miracle (John 2:1–12)

Bible Memory Verse: “You are the God who works wonders.” Psalm 77:14

Lesson 2: Jesus Walks on Water (Matthew 14:22–33)

Bible Memory Verse: “The whole earth is full of His glory!” Isaiah 6:3

Lesson 3: Jesus Gives Life (Mark 5:21–43)

Bible Memory Verse: “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14

Lesson 4: Jesus Appears to His Followers (Luke 24:36–49)

Bible Memory Verse: “Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome.” Nehemiah 4:14

Lesson 5: Jesus Sends Paul (Acts 9:1–19)

Bible Memory Verse: “Let the heavens praise Your wonders, O LORD!” Psalm 89:5

There are special Sundays scheduled for the rest of the summer and into the fall.

Our next potluck is scheduled for August 29th. Raelyn Pracht with the Texas District Church Extension Fund will also be with us that Sunday to tell us about the KIDS Stamp Program. Some of you might remember the “tracky stamp” program from years past. It is still basically the same program with a few modernizations. Raelyn will have a presentation at Bible class and then she will be staying for the potluck to answer any questions about the Stamp program and any other Extension Fund questions.

The last Sunday in September is when we hold our annual Missions event as well as our Sunday School Rally Day where we install teachers and recognize our Sunday School children moving into different classes. We also have games and a potluck on that Sunday to make it an event for the whole congregation. This year we have Rev. Solomon and Senait Yadessa giving us a presentation about the Multi-Ethnic Ministry of North Texas. Their mission statement is to “Make disciples of all nations by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and ministering to the spiritual, physical, social, and emotional needs of new Americans in the DFW area.” His ministry takes place in several forms including an apartment ministry, a midweek program as well as preaching and teaching at several multi-ethnic churches in the DFW area. Solomon and his wife are originally from Ethiopia and are looking forward to sharing a meal at the potluck Senait is planning on bringing an Ethiopian dish to share at the potluck. She also roasts her own coffee beans for family and friends and is planning on bringing some coffee for us to taste.

This brings us to October. Wow, so soon? The last Sunday in October is when we celebrate Reformation and this year, it actually falls on a Sunday, and it happens to be a 5th Sunday, which means, another potluck! Rev. J Brown from Concordia – Texas will be traveling in from Austin on that Sunday to give us a special Reformation sermon along with greetings from our own Concordia University. Most of you met J when he was here a couple of years ago. We are looking forward to having him once again.

Busy times and lots of fun on the horizon. Between VBS, potlucks, Midweek School and our regular ministry, we have a lot of opportunities to study God’s Word, teach others and to learn about what God is doing right here at home and how it reaches the world!

All that being said, I’m looking forward to a wonderful summer of worship, service and fun in God’s kingdom. “He has done marvelous things!” (Ps. 98:1)

We would love to have you visit our fellowship of Christian believers! Check out the calendar page for worship times as well as Bible Studies and other activities!

God’s Blessings to you as we celebrate and worship our risen Savior, Jesus Christ!
