Sweat It Out!
That’s what’s we did this past Sunday as the humidity was on the rise and our sanctuary air conditioning units were not working. This week our Building Elders learned the cause was two-fold. One unit was inadvertently shut off, but it is now back online; another unit's compressor has to be replaced. We now have an $8,400.00 bill, right in the middle of the dog days of summer.
Our finance team reminds me that in summer we typically experience lighter giving trends due to vacations and travel. I write to you to encourage your generosity this Sunday as we strive to fulfill our ministry commitments. Please consider blessing your church with a special gift. Thank you for your faithfulness.
This Sunday the sanctuary will be cool, filled with inspirational music, a challenging message and warm (not humid) fellowship. Come ready to worship, share in the joy of community and celebrate the mercy of God in our lives and church.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (NRSV)
In God’s Mercy
