From the Pastor's Pen
I trust that you are enjoying your summer. We have been having wonderful services at church with God blessing us and bringing about growth in our spiritual lives. Around 25 of you were able to spend the week at Mt. Chestnut for the Pittsburgh District Family Camp. We were able to send 22 children to Kids Kamp and 6 teens to Teen Camp. Some of the teens came back and shared a great report of what God was doing at Teen Camp and what a good time they had. Pastor Connie Young and Dana were able to be in Indianapolis for General Conventions and Assembly, where Dana was a delegate. They reported back to us on the seminars they attended and about the inspiration of worshiping with Nazarenes from around the world.
But, the summer is not over! August is a very busy and exciting month for us at Albion Nazarene. KIDS’ CLUB SUMMER EDITION (Vacation Bible School) starts in the Albion Park next Monday through Friday evenings. Set up is this coming Sunday at 3PM. Come help out (no small group that night). Give toward VBS, help with the children (make sure we have your clearances), and pray that God will bring many children to VBS and to saving faith in Him! Pray for the workers and for the safety of all the children. We look forward to Sunday School and Morning Worship in the Park for the closing of VBS on August 13th. Pastor Tonya (Ministry Intern and Children’s Ministry Director) will be speaking at that service.
COUNTRY CAMPOUT will be on the church grounds on August 18-20. The details are elsewhere in this newsletter. Invite your friends to come camp out and have a good time with us. On Saturday night at dusk we will be showing the movie “The Case for Christ.” Bring your lawn chair and enjoy the movie outdoors (weather permitting). We will have Sunday School that Sunday and then will have our worship service outside (again, weather permitting) with Pastor Robert Swedenhjelm (Ministry Intern and Ministry Director of Worship and Technology) preaching.
You know that you believe. Now come and discover the evidence for why.
Facts don’t lie! Discover the real evidence of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Whether you have questions, are a new believer, or have been a Christian your entire life, you will be touched by the true story of an award-winning investigative journalist—and avowed atheist—who applies his well-honed journalistic and legal skills to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife…. with unexpected, life-altering results.
LOOKING AHEAD: BAPTISM SERVICE will be on Sunday, September 10th at Raccoon Park at Lake Erie. Join us there for Sunday School, Worship Service with baptism, and picnic! Please let me know if you are interested in being baptized.
In Christ’s Love,
Pastor Wayne Hennen
