Tidbits from Pastor Tucker


May is a bitter-sweet time in the life of the church.  We will soon be celebrating with the Class of 2019, but our celebration brings the awareness that most, if not all, of these graduates will be leaving us to begin college.  Our church schedule will become a little simpler without Wednesday activities.  Time moves on.  It is one of the few things in our lives that we cannot stop or control.


There are a few things I hope you'll put on your calendars for the summer.  First, we will have two special mid-week fellowship times: June 26 and July 31.  June 26 is an Ice Cream (& Dessert) Social and July 31 is a Watermelon Bash.  I offer these two events as a way of staying connected during the disconnect caused by the summer scatter.  Please put these two dates on your calendar and make an extra effort to participate.


Second, the Summer Sermon Series will focus on our faith!  It is We Believe, a weekly reflection on the Apostle's Creed.  Each Sunday throughout the summer, we will explore the faith that has been handed down to us by the saints.  Since the second or third century, the Apostle's Creed has been the measuring rod for Christian orthodoxy.  It was originally designed to be used for the Baptism of new converts.  However, since the fifth century, it has been used in Sunday worship services.  And because we use it so frequently, it can become routine and we sometimes forget its importance.  On May 26, we will begin this sermon series.  If possible, don't miss a Sunday; if you miss, watch worship via Facebook Live to keep up.


Finally, since the summer church schedule is a little less stressful, I am hoping to visit more.  I am available for lunch or supper or just for an afternoon sit down.  I welcome your invitations and I'm excited about getting to know you better.  Don't be shy about asking!!  When I pray, I always remember each of you with thanksgiving!  You have blessed my life and made the ministry joy-filled again.  Let's continue to work together to build His Kingdom across the street and around the world.


Grace and Peace.....

Pastor Tucker
