Vision

In my LBA (Local Board of Administration) meeting for our church on Sunday it was mentioned that it seems a lot of people are simply trying to escape the problems we are all facing. Summer has made it easy, because we could go outside and play to get away from the pandemic news and forget about everything. But now that summer is winding down, this morning it seemed like it was long gone, and we are being forced back into the norm, what will happen? I imagine many people will still try to escape by diving into TV shows, movies, music, games, sports, but eventually after trying to run away from one thing to the next, people will be forced to face the problems and issues that are before us. We can't escape what we are facing. We must deal with it. And the only way to really deal with these problems isn't a vaccine or new politicians, it is a total change from the inside out of individuals by Jesus Himself. Vacations are nice, but the leaky faucet is still there when you get home. It's better to deal with the faucet and let your home feel like the vacation.

Last Sunday's Message 



If you've ever tried to talk to someone on your mobile phone and had the voice keep cutting out on you, or been watching something online and the image got all distorted, you understand that you need good strong signal in order to get a good clear call or video. It's the same with our relationships with God and others. The better the connection, the easier it is to understand.

What We Learned:
Hebrews 10:24-25 & Colossians 4:16
The best clarity comes from the best connection.

Reminder Phrase:
Connect

What's Happening

Flamingo Season is Here
When you flock someone, flamingos will be placed on their lawn for 24 hours. (You must personally know this person.) 
These flamingos will be placed with a message from you to the target. The message will include what the event is, how long the Flamingos will be there, your name, as well as a personal message from you.
The money raised will be going to the youth ministry at the Amherst Wesleyan Church.
