Pastor’s Garage September 9, 2021

Good morning y’all!

It’s supposed to be a beautiful day today and I am looking forward to the
sunshine this afternoon. It’s good for my soul somehow to see the sun

As we go into the fall, this is often the time where we begin to start up
some of our regular programs, but this year feels different again as the
pandemic still seems to be hanging (or looming) about. Well, we are
planning to start up some things, but actually with a new sense of freedom
and passion that I have not seen or felt in a long time. Things have been
quiet long enough that there is freedom to think differently and to only
rebuild the things that we are truly passionate about. Here’s some food for
thought and some things that are on the move!

1)* Firm Foundations:* We plan on starting up Firm Foundations again on
September 19th at 9:00am. I know that some of you have missed some lessons
through covid restrictions and stuff, but I would encourage you to jump
back in. If you have any questions please let me know.

2)* Kid’s Church: *I can’t say too much at this point because I don’t want
to steal their show, but there is a core group of people really passionate
about kid’s ministry and they have some fresh ideas going into the fall. If
you want to know more… well, you know what to do. Be on the lookout for
more details.

3) *Youth: *Would you take this to prayer? I am willing to be involved with
youth this year, but unless this ministry is “birthed in the people” (i.e.
YOU!), I don’t think I have the capacity to make this happen. A couple
people have come forward, but there’s not enough momentum yet.

4) *Jacob Bear Community Church (JBCC): *This Sunday I will be attending
JBCC to support them as they say farewell to their long term pastor’s Chris
and Brigg Judy. I will be serving on their board and doing what I can to
support their ministry for a season . Please pray for their church!

5) *House Church: *This is very near and dear to my heart, but at this
point there are as many questions as there are answers. I honestly feel
like this is the long play for the health and future of the church. I have
some thoughts in a document I can send you, but won’t overwhelm you here.

In closing, please pray for Mike as he speaks this Sunday and Rachel
Kardash as she leads worship. Please also pray for JBCC.

God bless,

Pastor Dave
