Welcome Wednesday Update
Dear Stillmeadow Family,
As Job turned to the Lord in prayer, let us persist in prayer over the Amazing Things Prayer List. Let's pray daily for God to do amazing things among us. The 9 points are only a guide. Let God direct your heart to go beyond the list as well! www.stillnaz.com/prayerchallenge/prayerchallenge
IMPACT 2000 PEOPLE ON ONE DAY WITH TRUNK OR TREAT!
Last year we had 2000 people come through our Trunk or Treat experience. And it was AWESOME! We'd love for you to be a part of it this year. October 27 we'll be doing it on our Stillmeadow Lane campus (2-4PM) and on October 31 (6-8PM) we'll be doing it on our Chestnut Street Campus. This is an incredible way to work together as a family of God to welcome our neighbors and their families. You can sign up to help with the Stillmeadow Lane Campus here: www.stillnaz.com/trunkvolunteers2018/. If you'd like to help with our City Campus event, email email@example.com.
LEGACY SUNDAY WAS GREAT!
My two younger daughters came home telling me about these two adults they met and played and prayed with. Shout out to Rachel Zeigler and our Family Ministries and Small Group Leaders for working together!
3 WAYS TO RESPOND TO THE HURRICANE DISASTERS
As people continuing Jesus’ mission, we are compelled to do something for those affected by these recent hurricanes. There are three ways you can respond. First, be in prayer for the victims and for the responders. Second, contribute to the crisis care kit collection. Check out the list and instructions at the bottom of the email. Third, go on our disaster relief trip with Samaritan’s Purse from Nov 11-16. You can join the team by contacting Randy Hull: 717-451-2502 or firstname.lastname@example.org
COUNSELING IN LIGHT OF GRIEF
So, on Sunday we shared how important it is to grieve Godward in our suffering. It is important to have others to walk with us in our grief. This is why we offer a group called GriefShare that meets weekly on Saturday mornings at 10AM. If you're interested in this class please contact email@example.com. We also recognize that some may need private counseling. Check out the counseling partnerships we have if you're interested: www.stillnaz.com/counseling-opportunities/.
THIS WEEK'S BLESSING
As we go into our world, may we be a Godward grieving people, trusting Him with our deepest pain and allowing Him to bring his grace to every part of our lives, so that through us He may offer His grace to all we meet. May we have the courage to grieve honestly so that we can be a people with a robust faith and godly lives.
