You wouldn’t know it by the flip-flops on my feet today. I’m a die-hard flippie; what can I say?
How are you doing? We haven’t seen each other in a few months and honestly, I’m missing you.
I miss seeing your faces come in, hands full of donations, hearts ready to meet the Lord.
I’m ready to gather with my pals and worship Jesus together, are you?
Before all things candy corn invade your mind space I wanted to share with you a few things.
First of all, our outreach spotlight on October 17th’s event is Alternatives for Girls. This organization does a fantastic job of helping homeless and high-risk girls
avoid violence, teen pregnancy, and exploitation. They help them explore and access the support necessary to make wise decisions.
We’ll be collecting these items that evening: Construction Paper, Crayons, Colored Pencils, New Bras ( all sizes) and New Socks (all sizes).
Secondly, it’s my absolute privilege to announce our speaker for the evening, Beckie Nemcheck! She is the Reach Local (community outreach) Director for Metro City Church.
“God has given me such a passion for serving. It is honestly one of my greatest joys. That He uses me to serve and help ignite a passion for serving in others is one of the coolest things ever! Serving has been one of the biggest factors in growing my faith. I want others to experience that. I also have a heart for connecting the generations of the church. Too often, there is an invisible division there. That HAS to be removed. We have so much to learn from one another. Most importantly – Jesus takes my breath away. Every time.” – Beckie Nemchek
Beckie will be sharing her story with us and be ready to be inspired. God is using her story for His glory.
I can’t think of a better way for us to wrap up 2014 then with our eyes and hearts fully engaged on Jesus. The One who makes all things new and trades our ashes for beauty.
