I Corinthians 15:58 says "STAND FIRM! Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." This scripture ends the passage Pastor David read on Wednesday night. For a great chapter on our HOPE in the Lord, read I Corinthians 15! The victory is already ours!
...from the family...Mimi (Pastor Scott's mom) has been freezing leftovers from the wonderful meals so many of you have provided. Thanks for these acts of love and all the gestures of kindness. If there are others that would like to participate in preparing meals, please contact the church office~593-3114.
A nursery for children through the age of 3 years will be provided for the Memorial Celebration Service on Saturday at 2PM. We will not be able to accomodate those 4 and over in the nursery and encourage parents to sit in areas where they can easily 'escape' if their kids become restless.
Beginning at 1:00PM, we will be running a shuttle from Midland Valley High School to the church to help with parking. MVFCN attenders are encouraged to utilize the shuttle bus to save church spaces for family and out of town guests. Additionally, there will be overflow parking adjacent to the upper parking lot (far left end--looking from the sanctuary) for those who would be willing to park on that hardened natural surface.
Several who may only be able to attend the service on Saturday and are not attenders of MVFCN have asked about an opportunity to greet the family. Immediately following the service, some of the family will be available to meet with you in the Family Ministries Center. Also, Vicky, Melody, Candi and several other family members will be in the 9AM service Sunday morning which will give MVFCN folks an opportunity to speak.
Thanks for your understanding and help with these logisitcal issues. Continue to pray for all the family. Many will be traveling in on Friday.
