A Note From Pastor Davidby Pastor David Alexander
Dear First Family,
This weekend we begin our fall super series, Talking with God. Over the course of the next weeks in the messages shared and with the video curriculum we have prepared for our groups and classes, we are focused on this goal…
That every person in our church family would grow more confident and capable talking with God.
If you have not yet connected to a group or might be interested in starting a new one by simply gathering with your friends to grow in your faith, please click here. We would love to help you get connected.
If you would like to hear more about this series and the potential of this series for your life and our life together, check out the video message to highlight this series.
Our work in bringing healing hope to those living along the Texas Coast continues. Thank you to all those who have already put together a health kit or a cleaning bucket and to each who has made a financial gift. We have another truck filled with cleaning buckets heading south on Monday and at this time we have room for another 75 buckets for this trip. To find out more about how you can help, visit this link for more information.
Alongside these efforts, this weekend our Special Needs Ministry will be receiving food donations for those who have that need in our local community. Collection bins will be located outside each worship space and a ‘drive-by’ donation point will be set up in the grassy area facing Walnut Creek from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm this Sunday afternoon. The Wesley Mission Center will be the recipient of all food donations and popular items include cereal, canned tuna, dry pasta, pasta sauce, mac-n-cheese, and saltine crackers.
By the way, do not forget your chance to support the work of the Wesley Mission Center during the North Texas Giving Day event which will take place this Thursday. I hope you will join Stephanie and I in that. You can do so at www.northtexasgivingday.org.
Finally today, I want to celebrate Phil Stover, a faithful member of our church family and a great servant in our community. On Thursday morning, Phil was honored at our Community Prayer Breakfast and given the Gary Whetzel Heart for the Community Award for his leadership with the Feed the Kids program through Common Ground Network, Habitat for Humanity and the Mansfield Kiwanis Club. It’s a tremendous honor and one that is well deserved.
You can read the remarks I shared in that presentation and see a picture of Phil and his wife Jackie by reading this post on my blog.
As you can see, God is at work in the life of your church family!
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of it! I hope to see you this weekend!
Grace & Peace,
