I trust everyone made it safely through the storm? We will hold in our prayers those who were affected.
Special thanks go out to Bonnie Wolfgram and Kevin Celebi, trumpet extraordinaire! Your music this past Sunday was wonderful.
We would ask for your cooperation this coming Sunday, Holy Communion. I have asked the ushers to rope off the back 6 pews to bring the congregation toward the front while our crowds are smaller. This will make for a more intimate feeling. Also, as I have announced that we have changed to using grape juice in place of wine. This is to respect our commitment to those who choose not to partake of alcohol. Thank you for your support.
The “Grow The Church” campaign is moving forward with its work. The Board will be reviewing recommendations by the end of August in anticipation of enhancing visibility of the Chapel to our surrounding communities. We think we, as a Chapel, have something wonderful to share!
I would leave us with a quote from the book that the committee used as its guide through this process.
“Unless everyone in the church assumes responsibility for serving each other, a culture of service dies.” (Beyond The First Visit, Gary L. McIntosh/author)
Blessings, Rev Bill
