THE PASTOR'S KEYBOARD
Who remembers this one?
“It's summertime summertime sum sum summertime…
Well shut them books and throw 'em away
And say goodbye to dull school days
Look alive and change your ways
Okay smarty pants… then who performed it? Ha! I can see you scrambling for Google right now. I’ll tell you at the end.
It is summer… finally! I’m not sure if it’s “officially” summer but its close enough. So what do the next few months have in store for you? No doubt some will find themselves on a blazing hot beach with the sand permeating their bathing suits and frying their feet. The sun will scorch their bodies and the sea gulls will screech their melodious songs… NOT! I’m not a big beach fan… can you tell?
Others will enjoy their yards and gardens as they watch the fruit of their labor brighten their days.
Swimming, golfing, picnics, vacations, amusement parks… there are hundreds of things we will do in the next 4 months.
Can I suggest that our God is our God 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And He is a God who desires to be worshipped. In your haste to enjoy the weather and your families… don’t forget to worship. You will be the better for it and so will your children.
FYI The Jamies were an American singing group, led by Tom and Serena Jameson. The group's 1958 single for Epic Records, "Summertime, Summertime," reached #26 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Now you know.
SUNDAYS and SUMMER WORSHIP
Beginning Sunday, May 27, there will be a 9 a.m. and a 10:30 a.m. worship service. The 9 a.m. service will be a more contemporary service outdoors (weather permitting) with a relaxed atmosphere. Bring your coffee, chair and comfortable shoes. This service is held on the lawn near the sundial to the left of the sanctuary entrance. It will last for 45 minutes to accommodate the changeover in parking. The 10:30 a.m. service will stay the same and will last until 11:30 a.m.
SUMMER BIBLE STUDY
2nd and 4th Wednesdays Bible study to begin June 13th at 7:00! Whoo, whoo!!
That’s right! 2nd and 4th Wednesdays! We’re going to spend the Summer looking at a video series “Touring the Holy Land” while at the same time walking through major sections of the Old Testament. It’s a video series… how scary can that be? Bring a Bible and join us!
Did I mention 2nd and 4th Wednesdays? Any questions ask Rev. Little.
