It's still Monday!

Good evening Team,
Yes it's still Monday. It's been a busy day and I'm just finding the time to get to my blog.

Did you notice Dan Eash on bass in the second worship celebration yesterday? What a great surprise when Neil text ed me that his brother was in town and willing to play with the band! Thanks for adding to our worship experience guys!

Didn't you love the kids yesterday as they sang and did the motions for the Crocodile Dock program. It was a great time at Summer Bible Adventure and the best part is that 25 kids gave their hearts to Jesus. Woohoo!

CHRISTMAS! If you haven't picked up your CD of Rejoice!, our Christmas musical, they are on the front pew...still wrapped in Christmas paper. Start listening and enjoy.

Next week, I will be taking a few days away to get with God and plan for the year. My enthusiasm is growing as I get ready to see what's in store for the Owego Naz Worship Team. I would like to meet with our Worship Arts Team (Liam, Suzanne, Sue, Denise, Andy, Bob) at our house on Monday, Aug 10 and share! Lets meet at 6:30pm.

REMINDER! The OwegoNaz Worship Choir will be singing with Sweet Aroma next Monday night (Aug 3) at Muldoon Park in Waverly at 6PM. Let's meet at the church and take the van at 5:30pm.

We've been talking about getting real with God in our prayers. We talked about using normal language and pausing to concentrate on Him when we pray. Then we start our prayers with PRAISE. The next step in our getting real with God deals with giving Him our worries.
Philippians 4:6 says: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" (NIV). we really believe this? When we pray, trustingly, He hears our petitions. And notice the attitude we need when we petition the Lord...thanksgiving. Yeah baby! That's the ticket! Gratitude before the Lord is powerful. Keep that attitude at all times and see how many good things come your way!
