One of the things folks noted Sunday night was how good it felt that the Gathering Area was full for dinner, worship and just being community together as kids ran and played and adults caught up with one another ... and all of this even as the Cowboys were playing their first meaningful football game.

One of the things folks noted in the various classes offered Sunday night was how good it felt to be in a good-sized class with others around the same topic ... or exercise as was the case with Margie Terrell’s yoga class.

One of the things folks noted at our Mission Together Sunday was just that: how good it was to be together in mission and together as families in mission.

One of the things noted by folks regularly during our renovation work is how good it has been to sit closer together in chairs in worship; how they have enjoyed getting acquainted with more folks and feeling more energy from that in worship.

We will feel that again as over 125 people gather for our Mission Charity Golf Tournament next Monday and over 100 people volunteer to help park some 3-4000 cars during the Balloon Festival next Friday through Sunday. At $10 per car, that is a lot of money for missions that we support. Be sure to sign up for a shift here.

As the writer of Acts observed, the believers were found day and night together, sharing. They were found together in the temple, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. “And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved” (Acts 2:43-47). It simply is biblical: we are better together. See you Sunday, Monday and next week in ... the Together Place.

Connecting God and Grace to Self and Community,
