A very productive Monday!
The guy I needed to see came into the office... nice. Thanks, Wes! We got a killer confirmation plan for the youth.
Flowed out a new members' class that I will offer a few times each year.
Set the hymns for the projected sermons until Advent.
Got a document ready on the preaching schedule for the next 15 weeks so people can have something specific to invite their friends, family and co-workers to!
Working on getting a set of inserts ready for this Fall's Keyword Sermons so people can follow along and take notes. We're going to be going deep into Hebrew and Greek, and letting the Bible define its terms for us. So often we come to the Bible, read a verse and then think we say whatever we feel like... but this is God's book, so we want to let it speak for itself, so that when we say words like "sin," grace," and "forgiveness" we actually know what we're talking about!
2 more things on the punch list and then the rest of the week is for the sermon and visits in the community.
