Friday Followings: A New (Used) Bus

Hello Gloria Dei,
 
During this month of Stewardship Emphasis and Thanksgiving, as we highlight different ministries going on in and through Gloria Dei, I want to let you know that we are in need and will be purchasing a new (used) bus.
 
Did you know that for years Gloria Dei has picked up children from school on Wednesdays and they are brought to Church School and other Wednesday afternoon activities at church? This year we have over 100 kids, grades K – 8, who are making use of our bus ministry. It’s awesome.
 
Our current bus is quite old and it’s time for a newer one. Beginning in January you will have opportunity to help Gloria Dei pay for the bus. We’ll have some fun “buying a seat or a row of seats or a tank of gas”. Contributions large and small will all add up to the purchase of the bus which will serve us well long into the future. Even the money from the regular Kids Night Out will be used for a few months to help in buying the bus. We’ll have some fun with this special fundraiser. Thank you in advance.
 
Over these next three weeks in weekend worship we are using the theme “Rejoice in the Lord Always! God making and impact through Gloria Dei.” I’ll be preaching this weekend on the intentionality of Gloria Dei keeping the gospel message front and center in our proclamation and life together as a congregation.
 
Later this month, during worship on November 20, 23, and 24, we will have opportunity to make our financial pledges to the work God is doing in and through Gloria Dei for the year 2020. Giving of our time, talents and treasures is a way of saying thank you to God for the gifts he has given us to manage. And furthermore, giving of ourselves and our money to Christ’s work allows us to be part of something much bigger than just ourselves.
 
And don’t forget to RSVP for the adult only night of fellowship, food, and sharing as we gather at the Willow Run Golf Clubhouse on Sunday evening, November 17, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Go onto the website, or the new GD App, or sign up at church. It will be a fun evening together.
 
See You in Worship!
 
Pastor Tim
