No, the people in these photos are not Kate Middleton, Cher, or Johnny Depp. They're just people who happen to look exactly like these celebrities and have made a profession out of showing up at events to impersonate their doppelgangers. When I was growing up I would often hear people comment that I looked like my dad. I didn't see it at the time, but, as I got older, there was no denying the resemblance.
As followers of Jesus, our goal is to be imitators of Christ. In Colossians 3:10, Paul instructs us to
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you
This Sunday, July 14th, we'll be considering how to go about becoming more and more like Jesus as we look at Colossians 3:12-14. I hope you'll be able to join us - and that people will begin to look at our lives and say, "You look just like Jesus!"
Congregational Meeting - July 21st
Hopefully you've all received an email informing you about a congregational meeting that will be held on Sunday, July 21st following worship. The purpose of the meeting is twofold:
1) We will discuss and vote on an amendment to our church by-laws which would allow for proxy voting at church meetings. This amendment was first presented at our last congregational meeting on May 19, 2019.
2) We'll review and discuss the preliminary engineer’s report and preliminary cost estimate for the proposed bank erosion control project. This will simply be an informational meeting. There will be a second meeting in August (to be announced) to review, consider and vote on the bank erosion control project.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend this meeting, but only church members will be able to vote on the amendment to the by-laws. We hope to see you there.
We're in the initial planning stages for a special baptism service that will take place in early August (TBD). If you have interest in being baptized, please contact Pastor Jeff.
