Good Morning SCCC Family,
* What a fun week connecting with great people once again. From the best home made “New Orleans Creole Gumbo and Ol’ Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits at one home to last evening’s Stir fried shrimp on a bed of rice – we be eating good! But along with those amazing dishes, the fun, the friendship & the fellowship has been the best. We’re so grateful to you and are sad to see some of “you all” leaving for the summer.
* They tell me winter is over and its time for spring clean up! That’s priceless. This kind of winter is pretty sweet compared to the ones we use to engage on the Canadian prairies. But nevertheless, the plans are to do some final touch ups at the church – Friday at 9:00 am. We’ll be doing some clean up, painting and reupholstering about 30 chairs. Guys, bring along “flat & star screwdrivers, staple guns and staples and let’s support these seamstresses who are going to give these chairs a face lift. Maris and team would so appreciate your help.
* Mayra and team are preparing for the upcoming Semana Santa on April 13 & 14. TOMORROW, (Wed Morning) – she could use your help in preparing the crafts for this event. So if your crafty, or not, she could sure use your help tomorrow morning at the church. Its so good to see a greater interest forming in local children as Mayra brings leadership to our Children’s Ministry. Let’s help her prepare to impact these little guys!
* We are all saddened by the loss of Matt’s sister Elizabeth. “Beth” passed away early Sunday morning after a brief battle with cancer. Her Memorial service will take place this coming Saturday in Bloomington, Minnesota. If you’d like to send Matt a note of condolence, you can contact him at Matt and his family are very grateful for your prayers. Again Matt, we are so sorry for your loss!
* CEC Friendship Raising Dinner is coming on April 4. Jennifer and Ed Hudson can help you with the tickets for this “Cordon Bleu” Dinner. It will be a great opportunity to meet the students they have been training for ministry this past winter.
* Many of you were encouraged by hearing Steve share about his life journey last Sunday. One of Leadership’s goals this winter was to help you get to know the elders a little better as they shared about their passions and interests and how Jesus has made a difference in their lives. We’ve heard from John New, David Long and Steve McLean. It looks like we’ve saved the best for last and we’ll save Chuck Dreiling’s story for next fall when you all return.
*Sermon Series: This Sunday, we’re back in 1 Peter, looking at the last part of Chapter 2. Many of you volunteer for different organizations, some of you still work for employers, some of you serve in other ministries – Peter has something to say about these relationships. We want to look at what Peter says about some of the “yah buts” that we experience in these working relationships. Like “do we have to be obedient to a boss when they ask us to do Immoral or illegal things, what about doing “stupid” things, what about just doing things we don’t like to do? How far does this authority thing really reach? Hope to see you Sunday!
Have a great week serving Jesus,
Pastor Glenn y Jeannine
