Welcome Wednesday Update
Happy Wednesday Friends!
Can you believe it's August already!? As our schools prepare to begin in this month, let us pray especially for the children, youth, parents in addition to the teachers, administration and workers throughout our county school system. If you get a chance, why not do a prayer walk around the school that is closest to you?!
BLESS A CHILD WITH SCHOOL SUPPLIES (WE'RE 1/3 OF THE WAY TO OUR GOAL)
Speaking of school, let's bless the children of the Parkway Development where our bus ministry serves every Saturday. This is an excellent opportunity for families to work together! The collection ends soon on August 12. See attached flier for more details
JOIN THE MISSION IN CAMBODIA
God is doing some incredible work in the nation of Cambodia and my parents shared a snapshot with us on Sunday (July 29). At the conclusion of their time with us we invited you to 1) Commit to pray, 2) Give a one-time gift, 3) Become a sustaining giver. If you'd like to stay in touch to know how to pray go here: https://bit.ly/2mbfiDO. If you'd like to contribute to their work you can here: https://give.nazarene.org/donate/f/130191.
WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW...IS UNITY UNDER CHRIST
We don't have to look far to see that there is a world of hurt around us. Backbiting, gossip, infidelity, hostility and bitterness seem to dominate; but in Christ we have been created to be His workmanship to do good works (Eph 2:10)! So, we're taking 7 weeks to look at Paul's letter to the Ephesians. Will you pray for unity within Stillmeadow? Will you commit to putting Christ's purpose before your own preferences and pleasures? Catch up on our sermons and use our reading plan available on our sermon blog: www.stillnaz.com/sermon-blog.
ALL CHURCH VOLUNTEER CELEBRATION POTLUCK: AUGUST 26
As a way to build unity, we are calling all those who volunteer in some way at Stillmeadow to gather on August 26 (from 4:30-6:30) for a Volunteer Celebration Potluck. Please RSVP to email@example.com and sign up for a food dish on www.PerfectPotluck.com/SURC1741.
THIS WEEK'S BLESSING...
“May the Lord help us to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. And because of this love which fills us to the measure of all the fullness of God; may we “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called – one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all through all in all.” And now to Him who is able to make this happen, and do immeasurably more than we can ASK, or IMAGINE, according to HIS POWER which is at work WITHIN US, to HIM be glory in Christ Jesus, here in HIS CHURCH, in York County and around the world!”
