Pastor Gary's Corner - July 2016

June has been a month of celebration here at FamilyNaz. We have celebrated our graduates, our fathers, 13 baptisms and the step of faith to move to two Sunday morning services. These are exciting days in so many lives. My prayer is that you take God everywhere with you. As you graduate and make life decisions, as you father your children, and as you live your life out loud. I would also like to personally thank everyone who has stepped up to help with our transition into two services. Greeters, ushers, teachers, safety team, cafe' workers, sound, tech, praise team and children's workers. I believe the extra space will not only provide comfort but will also create growth.

As summer approaches, we are excited to see how the Lord will move on this property. We have a summer that is full of possibilities both on Sundays and Wednesday evenings. The children are enjoying their weekly "Missions on the Move" and we are studying the book of Galatians every Wednesday evening from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Our young adults have many opportunities this month for fellowship and Bible Study as well. Thank you Autumn and Jeff for your leadership in this area.

I would like you to mark the dates August 8-12 on your calendar as we will be welcoming the community of Goodrich through our doors for Vacation Bible School. This will be our first big attempt to invite children in from the Goodrich community. We will need dozens to volunteer. We will need teachers, greeters, check-in help, crafty people, tech people and people who enjoy sports to help out with the game time. We are hoping that a bus driver will be needed as well. The theme is God's Backyard Bible Camp and it will be held each evening from 6-8:30 p.m. We will conclude the week on Sunday, August 14th with a giant outdoor service under one tent. Following the service we will have an all day picnic filled with food, fellowship, and fun! The Vacation Bible School committee will begin to recruit volunteers on Sunday July 10th. Please be in prayer as to where you can serve. A Vacation Bible School volunteer meeting will be held on Wednesday August 3rd from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

These are exciting days! As you spend time with the Lord each day, please pray for His guidance, His wisdom, His protection, and His will as we minister together. #GodIsOnTheMove
