Dear Church Family,

Thoughts from the Mount of Blessings page 107

In the news:

1.This Sabbath we will celebrate communion together. We will also be doing so in the traditional manner we used to do it before COVID seeing as how COVID cases have greatly diminished in our area.

2. I will be sharing the message tomorrow with a homily entitled, “The Ark & The Covenant.”

3. Note that due to communion we will only have one Sabbath school class in the sanctuary tomorrow with Ken Mathews teaching.

4. Our finance committee will meet this Monday at 6 P.M. at the church.

5. Our church board will meet this Monday at 7:15 P.M. at the church. Note that we will have Elder Rick Greve with us as we meet and interview our new associate pastoral candidate.

6. This coming Tuesday we will have Dinner with the Doctor! And we will finally be able to have a regular sit down dinner like we used to have. We will have special guest Dr. Sabangan with us to speak on the importance of sleep.

7. This Wednesday we will resume our study in Zechariah with a look at chapter 3. We will meet at 7 P.M. via ZOOM.

8. Remember our GAA mission team as they are now safely in Bolivia after a night flight from Miami. While they had a delayed flight to Miami, they were able to secure all their visas and make their way to their final destination. You can hear about the miracles that are already underway by planning to attend the Friday night mission report scheduled for April 29.

9. Remember that our church retreat is coming up next weekend at the Oaks! Melody Mason will be with us. Here is the schedule:

  • Friday, 7PM – Our Greatest Need!
  • Sabbath School, 10 A.M. – Lesson Study
  • Sabbath Worship, 11:30 A.M. – Growing Faith for the Final Conflict: My Story/Your Story!
  • Sabbath Potluck, 1 P.M. – Bring a Dish and remember we have no warming or refrigeration available.
  • Sabbath Afternoon, 3 P.M. – Living, Loving & Dying for the Word!
  • Sabbath Supper, 5 P.M. – Supper Provided!
  • Sabbath Evening, 6:30 P.M. – Growing as a Family in Prayer!

10. Remember that now is the time to invite your friends and neighbors to the upcoming Serpentine Prophecy event at our church. This series will look at the topic of spiritualism and death and is a great outreach opportunity. Help us get the word out. You can click the image below to share or visit our church facebook page and share the event. We also have a limited supply of flyers available in the church foyer as well for sharing.

11. Camp Meeting is coming up. The Carolina Conference has a week long camp meeting at Lake Junaluska and the Georgia-Cumberland Conference offers a half week camp meeting at Southern.

12. Mark your calendar for our upcoming Vacation Bible School in July. The dates are July 18-22!

13. Remember to reserve your spot (A&B sections) for the church camp out at Cades Cove, July 29-31.

Blessings as you prepare for the coming Sabbath!

In His Service,

Pastor Jeremy
