Welcome Wednesday Update
WHAT WAS SAID SUNDAY
As part of the message on Sunday, I shared about two pressing issues in our community: the abuse by priests and the hateful rhetoric of the KKK. If you missed it, please watch here: https://youtu.be/4U4DnY50bnY?t=15m10s
WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU
We have an incredible force of volunteers. From greeters to nursery workers, from parking lot attendants to servers at the Table…the kingdom of God is coming through you! So we’re calling all volunteers to gather THIS SUNDAY on August 26 (from 4:30-6:30) for a Volunteer Celebration Potluck. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and sign up for a food dish on www.PerfectPotluck.com/SURC1741.
DO YOU HAVE (OR ARE YOU) A COLLEGE STUDENT WE CAN PRAY FOR?
Our Stillmeadow College List begins again soon. If you have a student that you would like to add to this year’s list stop by the youth booth on Sunday morning and fill out a form. They will be added to our 2018-2019 list.
I’M BRINGING PEACH CRISP TO THE WELCOME BASH ON SEPT 9
What are you bringing? We’re going to have a blast worshiping Christ outside on the front lawn, baptizing a few people and celebrating with a potluck. We’ll worship at 9:30 and party at 11:30!
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE BAPTIZED? WE'RE BAPTIZING ON SEPT 9
Have you committed your life to Christ and want to show the world? Baptism is a powerful symbol of a powerful reality: Christians are people whose past sins have been washed away through Jesus' sacrifice on the cross (1 Peter 3:21); not only this, but baptism symbolizes that Christians get "dunked" to symbolize that they are burying their old selves in Christ and get "pulled out" of the water to symbolize that they are allowing Christ to raise His life through them (Colossians 2:12). So, we're having baptisms as part of our Welcome Bash on September 9. If you'd like to be baptized, sign up here: www.stillnaz.com/baptism.
THIS WEEK'S BLESSING...
We started our service with this blessing on Sunday. Let it guide us this week. 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.” May Jesus be elevated through our words of worship today. May our lives be centered on him, consoled by him, corrected by him, committed to Him and unified under in Him as we worship today.
