Summer Giving Matters
Summer giving matters


Summer may sound like a great time for a vacation, and it is. Lots of people think that summer is a slow time around Front Street, but it’s not. Actually, for some of our ministries it is peak season – and the most expensive. Consider these important ministries that will happen this summer:

* In June, some of our members, Patrick, and I will attend the North Carolina Annual Conference in Greenville, NC, where we will worship, learn and conduct the business of the Annual Conference. Your giving enables us to have transportation, meals and lodging. Please pray for the leading of the Holy Spirit at our Annual Conference.

* June will also see our Senior High Youth head out on their annual mission trip to ASP, where they will serve those in need by performing home repairs and sharing the love of Christ while they work. Your giving enables transportation, building materials, and other aspects of this ministry.

* The same week the Senior Highs are gone, the Junior Highs will go to the Hinton Rural Life Center in Hayesville, NC. Like the Senior High Youth, they will perform home repairs, participate in worship, and have a little fun!

* The last big event in June will bring about 50 children to Front Street for Mission & Music Camp, where they will learn how to play various instruments, and participate in mission projects.

* July will mean prepping for Vacation Bible School (VBS). During the first week of August we will welcome between 150-200 kids of all ages to a great VBS where they will have loads of fun learning about Jesus and how to follow him. The curriculum, snacks, crafts, and other supplies all depend on your support.

In addition to all of the above activities, we will still have worship, small groups will still meet, mission giving will still go out to fund valuable ministries outside our walls, and many other ministries will continue.

Lives are still being positively impacted for Christ, even through the summer. So, I invite you to make sure you remain faithful in your financial giving through the upcoming summer months, so that our church can remain faithful to the call to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Thank you, and have a great summer!

Grace and peace,

- Pastor Ross
