Pastor Kip's Email
July 6, 2018
DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY....IT'S FRIDAY!
Pastor's Scripture this week will be 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, "Love (When it's Not Deserved)". 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
If you would like to contact Pastor Chris via email, his address is email@example.com. The address of the parsonage (just an fyi) is 8288 W. Barry Ct, Homosassa, FL 34448. Or of course, you can mail anything to him at the church to his attention too at 8831 W. Bradshaw St., Homosassa FL 34448. His cell phone is 727-432-4814
Don't forget the Bloodmobile will be on the premises this Sunday from 7:45 am until 12:30 pm. If you didn't sign up but would still like to give blood, just go on in and talk to them. I'm sure they will find a slot open for you.
Mary Lee called the office today and plans to have Genesis ready to mail out on July 26th for July and August. She will be printing it on the 20th and the folding committee will prepare it for mailing on the 26th and we will get it to the post office to be mailed on the 26th so look forward to receiving it the end of the month or beginning of August. We can't wait to see her in the office. She will come in the Friday before to print so we will see her on the 20th, possibly on the 19th too. We have really missed her around the office and can't wait to see her again. God smiled down on her throughout this whole ordeal. Praises and thank you Lord!
The Ladies Lunch Bunch Bible Study group started their new bible study "Entrusted" by Beth Moore on Thursday, July 5th at 11:30 am. Actually, we decided to wait for 3 or 4 people who are still out of town but will be back by next week, so we mostly did the LUNCH BUNCH part of it and will start the Bible Study part of it next week. There are still some extra books as Sharon is want to order a few extra, and it's a good thing because we do end up getting full. In fact, just a few more and we may have to move into room 114! The class is taught by Sharon Miller and is open to all women. Bring your lunch and join in on a lot of spirited discussion that leads just about everywhere. You will be glad you joined. We enjoy fellowship, lunch, laughs and learning in a trusting atmosphere of true friendship with no judgment.
Don't forget that Wonderful Wednesday is the 11th and they will be serving the beverages and hot dogs, so brings food that you would bring to a "picnic" style dinner.
This will be the last Friday Weekly Email before the Men's Serendipity Pancake Breakfast the 14th. Check out your insert in this week's Sunday bulletin. I won't be reminding you next Friday. Why you ask? Well, I'm glad you asked. My husband Bob and I are going to be on VACATION from Saturday, July 7th through Saturday, July 14 and we will be staying at Lake Buena Vista in Kissimmee. We are going to go to Animal Kingdom at Disney. Other than that....no more theme parks for us. Instead, we are gonna take a jaunt up to St. Augustine, go over to the Atlantic coastal area of Titusville and hit up some of the Wilderness Parks in the middle of the state. I have two books I plan to read and a crochet blanket I have to finish that Joyce Hesketh started for me (that one I couldn't understand the instructions to). Thanks Joyce! Let's see how well I follow your instructions and the pattern you started for me. I don't want to have to come back with my tail between my legs, but I might have to. We shall see and I will let you all know how I did on it. I'll attach a picture of it to the Friday weekly email on the 20th. I sure do hope it is at least SHAPED like a blanket by the time I get through with it and not some weird artsy shaped piece of cloth that is unidentifiable.
I'm hoping Pastor Chris will keep this Friday weekly email going with me, but I am not going to push him. He has an awful lot of people to put names to faces and visiting the home bound and those in ALF's and rehabs and getting moved and settled in, so when he is ready (if he even decides to continue this tradition), he will let us know. In the meantime I guess what you see is what you get folks. We are one blessed church though, aren't we!
Thanks for understanding that I won't be sending this out next Friday. But just think about it....I get to share the highlights of my vacation with you on the 20th though. I won't bore you with but one or two pictures....maybe you'll get to see one of the horse drawn carriages in St. Augustine, or a dolphin, or my crochet blanket or even a picture of one of the books I plan to read...nah...we'll skip the picture of a book. Too inanimate of an object to bother with a picture of it. You'll just have to check on the 20th to see what pictures I have decided to share. How's that work for ya?
I will be thinking of you all while I'm away. Not a whole lot, but some. You know I'm kidding don't you...or am I? Or will she? hmmmmm...stay tuned!
Laurie Painter typed into a document the prayers of the children that they tacked onto the prayer wall at this years VBS. They are so sweet to read and tells so much of what is going through the mind of some of these children. And how mature some of them were with their prayer requests. I scanned the document and saved it as a pdf so I do hope this link works okay. If not, I'll post the pages on the bulletin board by the office. Enjoy:
In the grip of His grace!
