This is my favorite time of year. This month, there will be evenings when we feel crispness in the air. Too, football season is upon us. And finally, in a real way our Church Year begins.
We will begin the year with a bang, as on Sunday, September 15, we will join literally thousands of churches across the country celebrating: “Back-to-Church Sunday”.
At our church, our attendance has been strong all summer. But now school has started, and most of our mid-year vacations are over.
On September 15, we will roll out a new mission statement for our congregation and also a new logo that will identify us all across our community.
And after our morning services, we will celebrate as Jesus often did with a meal together. Ours will be of the traditional covered-dish variety.
Through every Sunday is a highlight for me as I gather with friends, church members, welcome newcomers, and worship the God who loves us with all His heart and walks with us through the world; I must share with you that I can’t wait until the 15th when we will worship and enjoy a meal together!
Please mark that on your calendars. Be thinking of the food you will bring to share (I already know the things I’m bringing.) And invite a friend, as we celebrate “Back-to-Church Sunday” together.
