Victory News - A Couple Big Things

Hello Friends,

This Sunday as a church family we’ll be continuing our summer series Good Questions – Honest Answers as we learn from a paradigm shifting story that Jesus once told. I look forward to helping you all see what a joy it is to be able to go home justified!

PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF A COUPLE BIG THINGS:

Building Design Task Force Presentation Next Sunday, August 3rd – At 8:09 am in theater #1 we will have a 45 minute session in which we, along with our architects from Korb-Tredo, will present our church site plan and designs up to this point. This will take the place of our regular Bible study before church next Sunday. There will be handouts available for you to take home as well. All are welcome to attend. In addition to the presentation before church, we will have a shortened service (ending at 10 am) after which we will have a secondary presentation that will last about 20 minutes for those who can’t make it early next Sunday.

Please make every effort to attend this exciting meeting about our church’s future as we look forward to being able to share Christ’s victory with more people for many years down the road!

This Sunday is a Bible Quest “Sabbath” Day – This means we want to honor all our hard working volunteers throughout the year with a day of rest. Well, maybe it won’t exactly be a day of rest since we’re inviting all the kids to worship with the adults in theater #1! But we will certainly have a unique opportunity to all be together as a church family and celebrate the blessings God has given to our multi-generational church. We will have the area set up in the lobby for you to take your kids if you feel they’re getting a bit too rowdy. We’ll have the service streaming on the TV over by the café as well.

Call to Hope – As I mentioned last week I’ve been given the opportunity to deliberate a Call to Hope Lutheran Church in Toronto, Ontario which is in a neighborhood that is ground zero for immigration in Canada in a city that is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. I’m still in the process of gathering information about Hope and getting input from people. This is a time to evaluate things from the perspective of life and ministry as well as an opportunity to stand in awe of God and thank him for his many blessings that I see evident in so many areas of my life. Thank you also for your prayers and words of advice / encouragement. My family and I are incredibly grateful to have a supportive church family. Please do feel free to contact me via email, txt, or whatever.

New “Mix and March” Bible 101 — on Tuesday evenings (from 6:30-8:00 pm) and/or Saturday mornings (from 10-11:30 am) starting Tuesday August 12th and Saturday August 16th. For more info contact me or register online using this brief form.  If you intend to participate in this upcoming class please take a moment to register online. I am eagerly hoping to see a lot of you join this group.

Sermon Resources from last Sunday can be found here on our website. Think about who needs to hear the message of Jesus their Savior!

My VotL – On our new church website we’ve changed what used to be called the “Online Community” to “My VotL”. This is still our web based church database and directory. Please be reminded to upload a current picture of yourself and keep your contact info up to date. You will find the link to My VotL at top of our website homepage.

Sharing Christ’s Victory,

Pastor Ben
