Looking Ahead

Dear Church Family,
 
I’m writing this email a few days early because of the 4th of July holiday. By the time you receive this email 4th of July will have already passed. That said, I hope you enjoyed the festivities of yesterday and felt a profound sense of gratitude for the freedom we enjoy here in the United States. We truly are privileged to call this place home.
 
Because of the recent holiday, some of you may be travelling. However, if you’re in town, I hope you’ll join us for what’s sure to be an inspiring time of worship. We’ll worship God through song, and then we’ll launch into part-3 of our 4-part series called “Superhero Summer.” In this series, we are exploring the points of connection between popular DC superheroes and the themes of Scripture. Our superhero for this weekend – the most famous heroine of all – is Wonder Woman! So come to worship and be ready to discover what the story of Wonder Woman can teach us about our faith.
 
I want to end this email by asking you for a favor. 
 
After we conclude “Superhero Summer,” our next series for the summer is going to focus on the Old Testament story of Jonah. We’re calling the series “Deeper Than a Fish Story,” because there’s a lot more to the story of Jonah than most people realize. (You’ll see what I mean by that last statement in a few weeks!) In the meantime, here’s where I need your help. The Worship Design Team and I would like to decorate the sanctuary with props that align with Jonah’s story. Therefore if you have anything fish-related (a paddleboat, a rope fishing net, etc.), please let me know (cjones@communityoffaith.org). I promise that if we can make use of these items, we’ll return them once the series is over.
 
It’s a joy to do ministry with you. Have a great Friday, and I hope to see you either tomorrow or Sunday. 
 
Blessings,
Chris
