Sunday Replay 05.25.2008

Man we had a lot of people missing today!  Some were visiting family, a few went to the race in Indy, and one is working in Japan – Konnichiwa, Josh!  But you know what?  We had very strong attendance for a holiday weekend!  Equal to what we would have called a “good Sunday” a couple of years ago – plus we had a fair number of guests, including some first timers! 

The worship band did great – good choice of songs, great execution.  Mark my words, this group will one day have an influence far outside Jubilee!

We finished up our “Hope… When Life Seems Hopeless” series by talking about how real hope can heal a broken heart.  We looked at the story of Jesus’ encounter with the disciples on the road to Emmaus.  Those two men were down and discouraged, with no hope for the future… And then they met the risen Jesus!  We can encounter Him in the same way those two men did – We can walk with Him, listen to Him, and recognize Him – and we can have the same results: a restoration of hope, reassurance that God can bring us through any circumstance, and a reason to tell other people about Jesus!

Next week we’ll begin a new message series…  More about that in a future post!

Bible Beach Club is right around the corner! June 16 – 20!  We’re still looking for a few more volunteers to lead teams, and some more students to serve in the BBC “Gopher Army.”  You can get involved by attending the next prep day this Saturday, May 31st, 10:00 AM.

Here’s an evening’s entertainment that lets you to stay close to home and save gas!  Family Movie Night on Saturday night, May 31st, 7:00 PM.  We’ll watch Flywheel, the first movie from the makers of Facing the Giants. Admission: one canned good/non perishable item for the food pantry per person, and each family bring a dessert to share.  (We’ll be doing more of these, and publicizing them in the community, during the Summer. See you there!)

I’ll be out of town a little bit this week – a leadership conference in Ft. Wayne on Tuesday, and a ministry conference at Granger on Friday – so leave a message at church, home or on voicemail if you need me. 

Have a great week!

    Blessings to you and yours from halfway around the world!!! It’s been a semi good trip – despite the fact my computer took a nose-dive and the majority of the menus seem to have fishing bait on them listed under ‘appetizer’! Hey, just wanted to write to say a couple of things…..Sorry I missed out on the tale end of your series on Hope. It was really speaking to me not only in the present but also how to see and handle the future. (I thank God for someone who is willing to speak hope and love in a truthful way! You go Scott!)I also wanted to say THANK YOU! – to everyone at Jubilee for being my loving extended family!!! I know I’m where I am suppose to be (church-wise) when my children feel comfortable enough to go even when their parents couldn’t make it! It really says something when teens love to go to church…….not for the religion preached at them but because of the love of Jesus Christ shown to them!! P.S. Thanks Josh and Heather for taking Jesi into your family for communion!! I love you all!! ROCK ON JUBILEE!!!!!
