Summer Moments

As we begin this new month, join me in welcoming John Campione to our staff. Several weeks ago, our church family voted to renew a pastoral position that we have not had for many years. The Associate Pastor of Pastoral Care will serve to provide pastoral ministry primarily to our seniors. While each of our pastoral staff provide pastoral care to our members, no one is specifically dedicated to serving this important segment of our family – until now.

John comes to us with a wealth of experience in pastoral ministry, having served as an associate pastor as well as a senior pastor in several churches in Texas and the northwest for over 20 years. I am excited to have him as part of the team and to see how God will use him to minister to our church family. When you see him around, make sure to make him feel welcome.
God is moving in our church – these are very exciting times! Youth camp was a powerful week in the lives of our students and Vacation Bible school was such an amazing opportunity to make disciples! I am so grateful for all the planning and preparation that went into one of the best weeks of the year for our children and youth. Thank you, all who were involved in serving and praying, for your commitment to see God’s Kingdom extended.
As the month of July unfolds, please pray for our Dominican Republic team, as well as the kids and sponsors headed to Kid’s Camp at Zephyr. These will both be wonderful opportunities for growth and discipleship. And then as the month moves on, be listening for new things on the horizon for our church.

God is on the move and our job is to walk with Him; not get out ahead of His Spirit and not lag too far behind. Pray that we will move forward in step with God’s movement.

We are on this journey together and it is quite a ride!

All for His glory,
