2018 Summer Ending Issue

LABOR DAY
The American Labor Day honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country.  As we celebrate on Labor Day, let us also not forget how our great God is the main source of our country’s strength, prosperity, laws, and well-being.  Psalm 33:12 says, Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lordthe people he chose for his inheritance.”

SUMMER ENDING CELEBRATION
Last Sunday, it was great to be with family and friends to eat together in the Worship area after church.  The Fellowship Team did a great job preparing for the event.  Doug and Eric did a great job with setting up the tables and chairs.  This was a great reminder that even good things need to come to a close.  Summer gives way to a school year and the change of seasons.  Hopefully you made good memories this summer.  If not, choose to live this school year on purpose and make the most of it.  May God bless this next season for you and give us all great stories to celebrate next time we eat together!

GROUP LIFE  
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 seasons58@gmail.com or Pastor Matt at matt@celebrationmuskegon.org for your step into Group Life!
