Welcome Wednesday Update

Dear Family of Faith,

 

As we walk this Faith Series (LOOK UP!), let us be the kind of people who are, "looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2)

 

PRAY FOR KIDS CAMPERS

This week we have 17 kids at our District Children/Preteen Camp. Will you pray for their hearts to be open to the message of "Power Up”.   The focus will be on people in the Bible who experienced the fulfillment of God’s promises and the transformation that comes from knowing Him. Kids will be challenged to raise their game, because knowing God and trusting in Jesus fills each of us with the fruit of the Spirit.

 

CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS! SET ASIDE AUGUST 18 FOR OUR VOLUNTEER POTLUCK!

If you volunteer in any way with any ministry at Stillmeadow, please set aside August 18 from 4:30-6:30 for our quarterly all volunteer meeting. We will gather to remember our shared vision, then divide into ministry areas to review how we're living out that vision in our ministry areas. RSVP to Karon Kagan (kkagan@stillnaz.com) and sign up for your potluck item HERE. Kids are welcome and we will have someone to care for them!

 

WHAT WILL YOU BRING TO THE WELCOME BASH?

So, one of the cool things about the Welcome Bash is that it features a potluck, where you can share your specialty! On August 25 at 9:30, we'll gather both campuses for worship and baptisms on our front lawn and then at 11:30 we'll enjoy a meal together. Sign up for the potluck meal HERE. And please be in prayer for this event, that God would be glorified and that our family of faith would be unified!

 

GET OUR STILLNAZ GEAR FOR THE BASH!!!

Wear this gear to the bash and beyond. There are two designs to choose from and several styles of clothing and accessories.  This gear store is setup to print and deliver your gear when you order.  The church does not receive any of the proceeds to keep prices as low as possible custom printed gear.  Shirt prices start at $13.49.  Click this link to start shopping. https://shop.spreadshirt.com/stillnaz-gear/

 

INTERESTED IN MATURING WITH OTHERS IN A HOME GROUP?

We profoundly believe that No One Matures Alone (NOMA), which is why we provide discipleship opportunities through small groups that meet Sunday mornings and through the week. We are adding some NOMA Home Groups this fall that will meet in homes with the hope of maturing in Christ together. If you are interested in joining one of these groups, find more info HERE.

 

INVEST IN THE INTERN FUND

We want to invest in the future and have created opportunities for young people to serve as interns at Stillmeadow over the years. This past school year and summer Nathan Lahr served exceptionally as our high school intern.  Join us in investing in Nathan's future! If you would like to contribute to the intern scholarship fund, you can write a check to Stillmeadow with the memo line: Intern Fund.

 

RECEIVE THE BLESSING FROM SUNDAY

As you leave this building and enter the world and mission field I pray that you look up.  As Nathan spoke to us, go and seek God with all that you are. May you know Him and His promises.  May you trust Him with everything.  May you leave the old behind.  Remember this week that where your head points, your body will go.  Remember to look up.  Go in His peace, Amen.
