Welcome Wednesday Update
Happy Wednesday Friends! It's our weekly update!
PRAY AND PREPARE FOR UNITY UNDER CHRIST
Today's world is incredibly polarized and filled with blaming and shaming. Into this world, the message of Christ comes with hope and peace and grace. For the next 7 weeks we will study the letter to the Ephesians on Sunday mornings. This letter was written to a church in a fractured community, divided by racial, cultural, religious and economic lines. In the midst of that brokenness, the people of Christ (made up of different races, cultures and classes) united under His leadership and transformed their community. Let us pray for unity under Christ for Stillmeadow and let us prepare for Christ's work in and through us.
INVEST IN OUR INTERNS
We have been blessed to have Sarah Weaver and Bakari Hargett-Robinson serve Stillmeadow this summer. Sarah has served in youth ministries and Bakari has served in the media ministries. You can invest in their pursuit of their calling by giving to the Internship Scholarship Fund. If you'd like to give, go to www.stillnaz.com/give and give online or through text to give. You can also give by sending a check to the church made out to "Stillmeadow" with the memo line saying, "Intern fund."
GET READY FOR THE ELDER KLEINFELD'S
So, I'm blessed to have parents who serve as missionaries in Cambodia. And we'll be blessed as a church when they join us on July 29 to share about their work there. We hope you can join us that Sunday so that you can hear about God's work in the church of the Nazarene throughout the land of Cambodia. If you want to catch up on their work ahead of time: https://bit.ly/2mbfiDO. If you want to give to their work: https://give.nazarene.org/donate/f/130191

THIS WEEK'S BLESSING...
Sunday's message (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ml_oN82Tl5E) ended with this blessing: As Jesus gave his disciples himself, his purpose, his partners and his power, may you daily receive Him, his purpose, his partners and his power so that like the disciples before us, you can flip this world right side up for the sake of Jesus. May you have the courage to honestly assess your life and eliminate anything extra that hinders the good news from being on display in you. Go in His power today!
