WHO, ME WORRY?
Here is a quote which didn’t make it to the sermon on Sunday but may be helpful for this week. “The biggest troubles you face in life are those which never come.” May your week be filled with trust in God for all he has done, all he does every day, and all he will do for you! (Philippians 4:6 – “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.”)
SUMMER ENDING HOT DOG ROAST
We know you are sad but summer is closing out! Invite a friend August 26 as we celebrate a great summer and look forward to a great fall season! Bring a dessert to share. (Maybe make a dessert for your friend you will bring!)
If you are new to Celebration or been there for years, getting involved within a small group is usually the next step for you. You attended and there’s something about it which keeps you there. Now it is time to know some more people so you can grow with God and find where you can serve God best! Contact Brenda Swanson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Pastor Matt at email@example.com for your step into Group Life!
