Hey there Vaughn Forest Church, I hope that you are all having an incredible week!
God is continuing to do incredible things here in the Forest and I hope that you are as excited as I am about all the growth and movement that is happening. This past week alone we had over 300 children in our Kids Ministry, many first time guests, lots of folks who signed up for a Life Group during Connection Point, and an dynamic weekend service with great music and our final message in the “Wisdom Way” series. Whew, busy Sunday!
This week, we will be kicking off our new series called “Rediscover.” Make sure to join us at 10:30 AM in the auditorium as we look at rediscovering why Jesus is such a big deal.
Also, remember that we are asking all Vaughn Forest members and families to do two things for us:
- Please park in the East Parking Lot (the one to the left of the property when you turn in from Vaughn Road) or in the back parking lot behind the church to help make more room for guests and new families that might have preschoolers. These folks are our guests and we want to be the best hosts we can be, and that starts in the parking lot.
- Please move where you sit in the worship service to the East side of the auditorium (the one opposite the baptistry). We are noticing the West side is getting really full and we want to slide over to make more room for all of our guests.
Would you be willing to help us with these two things? I know they may infringe on our preference a little bit, but I think if we can make these small sacrifices it will go a long way towards being great hosts to all of our guests. Thank you in advance!
Also, remember that Life Group sign up is currently underway! Life Groups are one of the most important things we do in the Forest because we know that life is all about relationships. If you have questions about Life Groups, please stop by the Grow Table out on the Pathway in the lobby. The Life Group semester kicks off the week of August 14th.
Also, please join us this Wednesday, August 10th, for a Church-wide cookout party! We will have hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, and drinks for everyone…all free! This is simply a come and hang out event but we will also have opportunities for you to sign up for a Spiritual Life Study or get more info on all the many things going on in the Forest this Fall. Come party with us!
I am so excited as we move into the Fall season here in the Forest! Make sure you are plugged into all that God is doing and keep living sent! It is a joy to be your pastor!
