Pastor Jim – August 28, 2014

The last Sunday in August, 2014 is here and that means two things: school starts next week, and this Sunday is the Annual Church Picnic!

I know that many kids say they are not ready to go back to school, but deep down inside there seems to be an excitement to learn something new.

Likewise, I also know that our picnic is only once a year but it is a highlight for many! The food is great and there is something to do for every age group.

We even have a horse and wagon that will take you on a nice ride around the church premises. Don’t forget to bring a dish to share, and the church will provide the pulled pork sandwiches.

Speaking of fun, this Sunday we will wrap up our summer series titled “ROADTRIP”. Our final message focuses on our final destination – heaven. This Sunday, I am hoping to open the Scriptures to you and give you a glimpse of the place we call “home.” I am trying to picture what it will be like to finally cross the finish line of life and see Jesus in heaven – just to be with him forever!

There is no greater feeling than to live your life for God here on earth, and then to cross the finish line and fall into the everlasting arms of Jesus! What a picture that is!

I hope to see you Sunday, both for the message and for the picnic! Who knows, it could change your life for eternity.
