Summertime for many of us represents a time for family vacations and a break from the push and pace of regular life.
To have a great vacation takes planning. You have to plan for the care of family pets, arrange for lawn care, the handling the bills and for someone to pick up mail while you are gone. Having taken care of these things, you will have peace of mind. I am asking you to consider adding the church to your planning.
Historically, church giving declines during the summer months as families away from home neglect to give. While you are away, the mission of the church remains the same to provide quality programming for spiritual growth and formation. At the same time, summer represents one of the busiest times within church life with Vacation Bible School, Youth Mission Trips, Kids’ Arts & Music Camp and Choir Tour.
My wish for you is to have a wonderful vacation, great adventures, new appreciation for loved ones and friends, and a safe return. We all want to get away to relax and enjoy the many blessings God has given to us. While you are away this summer please don’t forget to remember the church.
