Script #75


Beloved,

I had a funny experience.

Someone called 815-544-3535 and thought it was a personal/direct line to, uh, me.

Uh, it hasn't been used that way for almost 5 of the 7+ years that I've been around.

Whoa.

Speaking of the content of what's on 815-544-3535, don't miss this Sunday at First:

    8:00 - 10:00 - Open House
    10:00 - Worship/Dedication
    11:00 - Celebration Dinner
    1:00 - 2:30 - Open House

Lisa, our Director of Music and Arts, has coordinated a superb/Godly blend of music representing the diversity of gifts entrusted to us (see Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 12).

Dale has been an extraordinary visionary of what our family of faith can be and should be if we are going to be truly inviting, welcoming, and inclusively loving.

Yet, really, it hasn't been easy.

I know.

So this is a great time to celebrate and praise Him and thank our Project Team for their efforts.

For example, are you aware of how much time our Project Team Chairman Dale redirected from his personal life, vocation, family time, and...over the past two years?  Probably not.  I know; and that's why I'm really looking forward to hearing how the vision enabled him to overcome the...

Now listen to 815-544-3535 so you don't...

And invite, welcome, and include folks on Sunday!

Blessings and Love!
