I thought I’d dedicate this week’s email to some numbers, just for the fun of it.  Here are few:

 – Baptisms this summer, so far

100 – Kids attending VBS this week, including 42 from outside our church family

59  – People heading to the Ark Encounter on the church trip this weekend

416 – Church attendance on July 3rd, which ended up being our highest attended Sunday since Easter.

3374 – The number of dollars already given to the Fair Outreach this week, more than a third of our need!

34 – Number of confirmed volunteers heading to the Fair Outreach. We need more! Sign up here…

I know that any number we count in ministry work represents something important – people making choices, even sacrificial ones, to serve and love others; people seeking God, growing in their faith, and taking positive steps.

I’m grateful for each of these numbers, and I’m grateful for you.

See you Sunday,

Dan Jarvis
Interim Teaching Pastor
