September 9th is our annual “Covenant Sunday” as we gather to worship, start the “school year” — and remind ourselves of what it means to be a member of a local church. Pastor preaches from 1st Corinthians 9 on running the race — a fitting topic! We also resume our school year ministries, and explain the value of Christian education at an all-church assembly. May the Spirit of God gather, bless and direct us.
Join us for the worship of God at 9:30 AM. Our sermon is from Psalm 128 and speaks about the biblical view of work -- and how we should focus on this especially in troubled and distracting times. All are welcome.
NOTE: there is no Sunday School or evening service on the Labor Day weekend.
Join us Sunday, Aug. 26th for picnic lunch and a ride on a real train at the Adirondack Live Steamers Club just east of I-87 exit #15 (near Dave & Nancy French’s home). Burgers & hot dogs will be grilled by the club, and attenders should bring a salad or dessert to share. These real, scale-sized trains have an engineer & conductor, and reach a top speed of 5 MPH as they travel through the woods, over bridges, and through tunnels. A signed waiver is necessary upon arrival.
See www.adirondacklivesteamers.org for more info and pictures.
Our annual summertime “Family Class” — with all ages, kids (who can read) and adults together — is underway in the Fireside Room during July & August.
Our topic this year is The Effective Ambassador from 2nd Corinthians 5:20, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
There will be weekly Bible lessons, memory verses, some skits and games too. Pray that the Lord would equip us all, and send us forth!
