It's that time of year when the temperature remains in the high 80's and into the 90's all day and through the night. It rains most days for a little bit then it is hot and beautiful once again. Summer is that time of year when our preschool takes a break and our children's ministry does amazing VBS, and now, our youth ministry continues its awesome presence in our teenager's lives. Our church might slow a little but our worship and connecting people to God and to others does not.
Our style and structure of worship changes as well over summer - our choir does not wear robes and they do not practice on Thursday nights. The hope is for anyone who might want to give singing in the choir a try can just come at 9am to the choir room. I hope many of you will try this adventure of helping lead in worship. We also began a new worship experience which began on July 1st. Periodically throughout the summer one person from our congregation will share why he/she joined their hearts with CBTS. It will be amazing to hear people's stories and I looked forward to hearing more as we go thru the summer months.
I hope your summer is filled with great memories and wonderful times. Please take some time to relax and "be still" as Psalm 46:10 charges us to do. I hope every one of you experiences God's love in new and amazing ways this summer. Have a blessed season and I look forward to seeing you all each Sunday.
In His Grip,
