Dear Glen Mar friends,
Our first Sunday back in the Spirit Center went really well. It was so good to hear voices and see real people again. It felt like "church" to me. Let's do it again! If you're not ready, or you want to be at home, that's totally fine. If you're "in the house" you can expect masks, lots of space between family units and great worship. If you're at home, you can also expect...great worship! We're taking reservations here https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D49AFAF2AA0F9C52-sunday.
I'll be preaching on Acts Ch. 1, as we start a brand new, exciting worship, stewardship and capital campaign series called Mission Possible! The sermon title is (wait for it), "Your Mission, If You Choose To Accept It." We'll be exploring how the early Church lived out its mission as Spirit-filled and Spirit-led followers of Jesus, and talk about where God is leading Glen Mar by the power of that same Holy Spirit. The series will last through Nov. 8, where we will recommit ourselves as followers of Jesus by renewing our baptismal vows and sharing our commitments around the mission Jesus calls us to...Mission Possible! You may have already received a snail-mailing with more info about what's ahead. You won't want to miss it!
Because we are bathing the whole series in prayer, as we pray for our neighbors, our Church, and our call to love and serve, we are asking folks to sign up for a "sweet hour of prayer" for how God is working through Glen Mar to root people in the life-giving message of Jesus Christ. It's starting at 10 am this Saturday, 10/10 through 9 am on Sunday 10/11. You can pray right where you are. Signup here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0B4CA5A72FA75-mission
At Saturday Night Live (5 pm), we'll continue our study of Fruit of the Spirit with "Goodness." Come out to hear God's Word, with music and safe singing by Dan and the Band. Here's the list for that. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090B4CAAAC2AA31-saturday
See you in Church!!! (Yep, still glad to type that....),
