Rally Day

   Rally Day is the beginning of a new program year.  It is a time to recommit ourselves to  share the most important message in history, the good news of Jesus Christ.

   Our Ministry Faire will give us a chance to see the opportunities we have organized for service.

   More importantly, the celebration gives us an opportunity for each of us to invite someone to share in our ministry.

   We live in a culture that, for the most part, does not see any need for God, or any god but themselves.  The problem is that when we worship our selves, we worship a very demanding god.

   Our time is consumed with serving “me”, and “I” am never satisfied.

   God, our God, however, calls us to be consumed with the needs of others.  The paradox is that it is only in being in service to others in God’s name that we realize a truly abundant life.
