An Encouraging Word from Marvin
Our AmazinGrace is always one of the highlights of the year for me. The thrill of seeing so many people walking and running through our church campus for a wonderful cause is a spectacular sight every year. None of this would be possible without the incredible work of a host of volunteers who work for months leading up to our race day. There are too many to list but I hope everyone of you knows the appreciation of our church family and the Providence Medical Clinic family. Thanks for a job very well-done!
On Sunday morning we celebrated with yet another outstanding group of high school seniors. I have been blessed to watch many of these youngsters grow up from the nursery to the days when they will soon be in college. I know you are proud of them. Thanks to each of you who has rocked them in the nursery, taught them in any dimension of our church life and prayed for them throughout their lives. I know you will continue to pray for them as they follow the joyous paths ahead of them.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day. Over the last few years Mother’s Day has become a very special day of worship for us. Many of you bring family from out of town to worship with you. Let me ask all of our church family to make a special effort to speak to folks you may not know. I guarantee it will make a difference in the people to whom you speak and it will make a difference in the life of our church.
Sunday morning we will look to the life of a mother who had a dreadful decision to make. Her son would grow to become one of the great people in biblical history. But before that happened, she had to learn to “let him go.” I look forward to seeing you on Sunday as we think about how challenging that must have been.
