An Encouraging Word From Marvin
Last week I wrote you about the Wednesday evening experiment with an off-duty officer from the Kingsport Police Department. It appears I was a bit premature in making that announcement. Our insurance company has raised some procedural questions which we must deal with appropriately before moving forward. Thanks for your understanding as we move forward with these plans. I will keep you posted as to our progress.
We continue to emphasize the word, “Open,” during November. This Sunday we will focus on how we use our time. We will consider whether we are opening our days to God. I hope you will be here as we focus on the gift of each day.
In the next few days you will receive correspondence from our Stewardship Promotion Committee about our campaign to meet and exceed next year’s church budget. We will be celebrating our Centennial and also are adding a significant amount to our missions giving. It will take all of us to fulfill God’s work in our midst. I hope you will prayerfully consider your giving as we move into a new year.
Thanks for being patient and flexible these past 15 months as our building has been going up. We are getting closer! I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
