Dear First Pres,

Thank you so much for all those who helped Love Our Church campus on Sunday. What a joy it was to watch folks work together in stewarding the amazing property that God has given us. I loved watching people connect while cleaning windows, dusting pews, and the like. I loved seeing folks from every generation of our church working together. I loved knowing that your work was a great encouragement to our custodians, Freddie and Oscar, who work daily to keep our campus looking sharp. Thank you. I am so grateful for your willingness to jump in and participate in things like this.
  Also, on Sunday, I invited you to pray every day from Psalm 119:33-48. Have you done it?  It has been such a benefit for me to use these verses as a guide to prayer. Sometimes we come to prayer and we don't really know what to say. That's where the Psalms can be so helpful, and I have found that to be true for me this week. I've been praying these verses for myself, for my family, and for our church. Will you join me in that prayer?
  And, if you'd like to pray with a group in person, you can join me and others at our All-Church Weekly Prayer gathering on Friday morning from 6:30 to 7:15 in The Commons.
  Finally, I encourage you to join your church in memorizing Psalm 119:1-8. It has been a wonderful reminder to me that the blessed life is to live according to God's Word. I believe it can be that same beneficial reminder to you.


P.S. This Sunday we have a fabulous Connect Time planned in addition to our Communion Sunday worship services. Our Schedule: 8:30Worship; 9:35-10:10 Connect Time; 10:15 Worship. Details available here.
