Monday Morning Musings ...

Yesterday was a very exciting day. We celebrated Baby Day, it is something we do annually to highlight our Nursery ministry, show off our babies and honor those who work in this vital ministry. I think we had 8 babies, and parents, who were apart of the show, and we had pictures from a few more who didn't make it to the service. Baby Day always has an extra level of excitement. After the service we had a potluck meal and an all church baby shower for my Associate Pastor and his wife, their first child is due in about 2 and a half weeks. Man did they get a haul of stuff. I am really excited for them and it was great how the church came through. Even with all of the extra stuff we still had a good spirit during the service. It was a little different preaching because we had everyone sitting around tables so we could move right into the meal and baby shower. The fact that it was a little more difficult to communicate the message was ironic because the message was on the need for positive communication in our relationships. Our attendance was great, we were within 16 of our Easter attendance.

The evening was another time of change. We kicked off our Summer Sunday Evening Shake-Up. We had people choose 1 of 4 groups to be a part of for the evening. They could be in the prayer group, they could be in the group who wrote notes of encouragement, they could make phone calls or join the group who went out to make visits in homes. Several dozen notes were written, much prayer was done and 11 people went and made some home visits. Some of the ones making home visits said would do some more later this week. All things considered it was a good night. I need to lay things out a little better next time, but it was a good first experience.

Which made for a great day. What a great way to start the church summer.

Here's hoping your summer is off to a great start.
