Shepherds’ Notes

The first day of Fall is Saturday, September 23.  It’s hard to believe the Summer is almost over and before long we will feel the crisp air of Autumn and will be able to enjoy all the things associated with the season.   Football, firepits, hayrides, and holidays are things that come to mind.   My hope is that you will take the opportunity to enjoy the season.  Often, we get so wrapped up in our “busyness”, that we miss the opportunities and blessings that God has given us.

The Fall is also a great time to fellowship with each other.   Today, we have several that are at the Fall Camping Trip, and several of our ladies are at the Transform Ladies’ Conference.   Our annual Gospel Singing is November 10th, so please make plans to attend that evening.   It is always a special blessing to spend an evening with brothers and sisters in singing praise to God.   The Fall season is full of youth events as well, so please keep a close watch on the bulletin and News and Notes to stay updated on activities.

The Fall also reminds us of the Harvest.   Jesus says in Luke 10:2  “And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (ESV).    As we look forward to the change in seasons, let’s remember that our mission is to make disciples.   We are all commanded to be laborers in the Lord’s harvest and bring the Gospel of Christ to those that are lost.
