Celebration Midweek – Sep. 5

DON’T JUDGE ME!
“Our goal is restoration, not condemnation.  Our motivation is for God’s glory and the common good, not for our own moral superiority.  Otherwise, we slip into judgmentalism.  And it’s contagious.”  This is a quote from Shiao Chong which didn’t make the Sunday message but is well worth consideration.

So many people at Celebration have come back after long “vacations” from church.  It was the encouragement and invitation of a friend or co-worker which led them back.  Do your part by inviting your friend or family member back to church on September 16.  We trust God will do his part too.
