Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Well as usual the Cunningham and surrounding communities are amazing. I wrote to you a month or so ago and asked for your support of the West Kingman County Education Foundation, our Campers and our Judgement House Tournament and how all three could use you financial Support. WOW!!! Is not even enough to explain how amazing all of you are. Each of these programs had a need financially and each one was Blessed incredibly. God once again used all of you to make a big difference in the Education of our Youth both spiritually and in higher learning. I do not know the numbers for the WKCEF but I know God Blessed that program. As for our campers, they received enough for this year’s cam and a little seed money for next year. Judgement House had what I think is our biggest year ever clearing just over $6000 for our program. God is So Good!! So to carry on with an upbeat feel to our churches and a lot of blessings, I want to tell you of a couple of events coming up soon, one of them very soon. On August 5, we will be having our Annual Church in the Park, in Cunningham. Both church families are invited so we can celebrate as on big church family (which we really are). We will start at 9:30 that morning with Breakfast (everything provided) you need not bring a thing but an appetite. Breakfast will be followed by Morning Worship and so on. We will meet in the park just south of the swimming pool. Also on Sunday, September 9, we will have our annual Parish Picnic. We will start at 6:00 pm at the parsonage, 218 E. 4th, in Cunningham. Again everyone from Cunningham and Pratt are invited. Marla and I will provide the meat, drinks and table service. Bring a side dish or dessert or a friend or all three or none of the above,(as long as you bring yourself). It is a great time of Food, Fun and Fellowship. You know it is fun to think about fun things and to see just how faithful God is to us and so we can be faithful to Him by Worshipping and Fellowshipping Together. I know there has not been any scripture references or "great thoughts" in this letter but it is kind of ironic that as we have been looking at the Sermon On The Mount from the Gospel of Matthew in the last few weeks, that the final sermon in the series will be when we are Together for the Church in the Park. Do you think someone had a hand in this? Blessings to you all and we look forward to seeing you August 5 and September 9.
In Christ's Great Love,
Pastor Mike and Marla
