A word from Pastor Rich Block
The church council is currently working on "Guiding Principles" for this year. These are a series of statements with measurable objectives describing what we are working on for the coming year. These statements are listed below one of four topics: befriend, invite, disciple and send.
Hopefully those four words are familiar because they are part of our Mission Statement. "Jesus BIDS us: Befriend, Invite, Disciple, Send." Have you noticed that the word BIDS is the first letter of the four descriptive words that follow what we believe that Jesus is instructing us to do?
One of those - invite - is especially appropriate during April with Holy Week and Easter right in the middle. Invite someone to come and worship with you. Perhaps you could pick them up and bring them to church. Maybe you want to invite them over to your house or go out for a meal with them after the service that you attend.
May God be with you as you prepare for and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord.
Messenger Message from Pastor Rich Block
Over the past several months there has been some conversation about “Switching the Position of the Choir and Praise Band.” What prompted this is that the sound board needs to be replaced and in the process the discussion grew to include this idea. The reasons for replacing the board are as follows. The current board is a 14 year old analog style board. It has internal parts that can fail as well as be affected by dust and humidity. It has been serviced twice for dust. It does not currently produce a consistent and proper level of sound.
I have prepared information for those two groups that included the following points on the advantages for the Choir and Praise Band and Singers.
