NUMBERS TO CELEBRATE
I thought I’d dedicate this week’s email to some numbers, just for the fun of it. Here are few:
4 – 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,
Interim Teaching Pastor
