I've always been fascinated and drawn to water. When my family moved to Mercer Island in 2006 we rented a house that was a block away from the waterfront of Lake Washington. I used to walk our dog through the neighborhood and stop at the small waterfront parks just to enjoy looking out over the water.
Now that we're here in the Methow I get to enjoy rivers and streams - including a stream running next to our home and the river only a few steps away from my office! There is something about the sights and sounds of moving water that is both calming and energizing.
In John 7:37-38 Jesus shouts out to the crowds,
Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, 'Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.'"
This Sunday, November 17th, we'll be talking about Reckless Reaching Out. When it comes down to it, our ability to reach out to others with God's love comes as an overflow of this river of living water that God bubbles up from within our relationship with Him. I hope you'll be able to join us!
Potluck and Annual Meeting this Sunday evening!
Be sure to make plans to join us this Sunday evening, November 17th, for our Annual Meeting. We'll begin with a potluck meal at 5:00 followed at 6:00 with our meeting. After we've concluded with business, we'll finish up the evening with dessert and more fellowship.
Everyone is invited to join us for this exciting evening - both members and attenders. We will be hearing about the exciting things taking place within the larger Covenant denomination, watch a slide show reviewing some highlights of the past year, hear about our hopes and plans for the coming year, and vote on new Church Officers and Council members and the 2014 budget. It should be a fun and encouraging evening!
