Worship Gathering Update

Submitted by Office Manager on May 5, 2020 - 10:33am

We are constantly updating ourselves on the information coming from the CDC, Public Health, and the Grand Canyon Synod. This will help us plan a phased return to worship at church. Your church council and leadership is meeting every Monday evening to discuss how to do this best and to gather and share the information we receive.

What is the new life that is coming?

Lent is a time of preparation for baptism.

Easter is a time to live in that new life given to us by our resurrected Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Then Pentecost comes with the Holy Spirit and the call to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

At the end of Academy Chapel, we ask the kids, “Where is God?”

We then lead the kids through a series of statements with motions. It reminds the kids that God is near and all around, as well as a good reminder of right and left and other things.

So, dear readers, without the script we use there, how would you answer the question, “Where is God?”

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching.  You may have noticed from the store displays.  The displays that replaced the Christmas displays after the sales.

You have a way to express love in a very real way starting in a couple weeks here at church.

We will kick off Heart2Heart.

Johnny Nash wrote the lyrics for this song released in 1972.
I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
(You probably have that tune in your head now. You’re welcome!)
Now that it is 2020, what can you see clearly now? What are you planning on doing based on what you hope to accomplish this 2020 year? What resolutions are you making to achieve those plans?
I have a few resolutions for our church family that I would like your help with achieving.

December 2019 Forty for Four

Submitted by Office Manager on November 27, 2019 - 2:10pm

We are coming to the halfway point of our "Forty For Four" Campaign. Over the two years it has redecorated the worship space with carpet, paint and tile; resealed the parking lot; replaced the tile roofs on the Academy; and helped pay for HVAC upgrades. Thank you to all for your generosity!

Forty ForwardIf you take a look around the campus, you will see more of the fruits of the Forty For Four Campaign! The tile roofs on the Academy Building are being replaced (one down- one to go), and the Parking Lot was resealed with more areas patched.

Many people see with dismay a changed world today. It seems that things are not what we expected (where are the flying cars and space travel!). What can we do?
We can move forward with our mission. After all, we are not trying to find something, we are seeking to share the grace of God in Jesus Christ and the new life that comes from it! We have each other, our God given gifts, and a mission to follow the one who leads us into the future.

September Pastor's Letter

Submitted by Office Manager on October 3, 2019 - 12:16pm

September is kick-off month.

Even ignoring the NFL, it sure seems that way!  Jenni has told me that the church calendar will need to be printed on 11x17 paper and folded, just to keep it legible.  So, you can tell your friends that your church will have a calendar centerfold (let your friends think what they think about that!).
