Hello Brothers & Sisters,
We have had a great summer at Grantham Church! I have heard from many of you that our six-week Knowing Jesus series was both helpful and challenging to your walk. Also, this past Sunday we recognized the 7 people who were baptized the previous Sunday, and we got to hear 5 stories of how God was at work over the summer through various trips. I hope that you were encouraged.
We’ve had some technical difficulties this week, but the stories will be on the website and our podcast before the week is over. Thank you for your patience.
This coming Sunday we have a special guest speaker. Upon recently learning that our bishop (Bob Beaty) needed to back out because of some new Sunday morning responsibilities, I asked Eldon Fry, a gifted spiritual director within our conference, if he would be willing to come and share his heart with us. Whether you’ve known Eldon a long time, or this is the first time you’ve heard his name, I know that you will be blessed by his ministry to us. If you’re in town this Labor Day weekend, please join us for worship. We will conclude the service with communion.
Remember that this coming Sunday is officially the end of summer for our church. Fall Kickoff is on Sunday, September 8. Check out our Fall 2019 Ministries brochure to see how you can engage with our church family in the season ahead. You will also find information on our fall series, Spiritual and Religious, which begins on Sunday, September 15. I’ll be sharing more about that as we get closer.
Finally, please be in prayer for the entire church staff. We have been working hard getting everything ready for our Fall 2019 Ministries. We greatly appreciate your prayers for good health, stamina, and the Spirit’s power in the days ahead. May God continue to bless Grantham Church as we seek to make disciples and be open to where God is leading us in the future.
See you on Sunday!
Grace & Peace,
