for the  week beginning Sunday, September 14, 2014

Yes, we are still huddled around that little Emerson air conditioner we found in the alley behind our house several years ago. It just keeps pushing out those ice cubes of cool air. I told it to hold on a little longer.

Claudia and I will be participating in a West Coast Pastor’s Conference at Hume Lake Christian Camps starting tomorrow.  This group of Pastors and their wives come from various Christian fellowships (including some of our Brethren pastors in California).  Pray for us in our travels on Monday and Thursday and also our time at the conference.

Several days ago I met up with a group of pastors and missionaries from Southern California at the Seal Beach Police Department. No, we weren’t booked but our ids were checked and then we were admitted to their conference room.

We continued our GREAT STORIES OF THE BIBLE series one more week on September 7 and got a good lesson from a bad example from the account of the prodigal son in Luke 15. Stay tuned for today’s story.

Come together here on Sunday morning at 10:45 for a dedication of our students of all ages including adults who are in school this fall. Some of you are in elementary while others of you are in online education programs. We will have a few moments of prayer with you and for you on September 28.

Once a year we celebrate the blessings of God in our church family. This year the date is Sunday, October 5 right after the conclusion of the morning service with a picnic in Central Park. Come for the food. Come for the fellowship. Come to beat Mando and Ryan and Gil in the sack races.

God’s best to you,

Pastor Richard
