Good morning Journey South Bay!

#1) What a GREAT picnic! I have heard nothing but glowing reports of how fun it was, delicious food, and wonderful interaction. It was especially great to hear that a number of our camper families from our Friends of Angles Autism Family Camp came along with other guests. Thank you to everyone for welcoming our new comers with open arms, and to everyone who brought food, set up and tore down, helped with games, bouncers, and cooking. And a special thank you to Kipp and February Johnson for their leadership in coordinating the event.

#2) Saturday evening was our youth group’s Ladies and Gentlemen night. 24 of our teens came all decked out in coats and ties and nice dresses. It is a night when our young men are taught how to respectively treat a woman, and our young ladies learn what they should expect from a gentleman. Where else are they going to learn how to treat each other in a God honoring way? On top of that the kids had an absolute blast! Fellowship Hall looked great! Big time props to our youth leaders and parents for putting this on!

#3) It can be challenging at times to get along with people who are different than you: different personalities, different interests, different backgrounds different talents. But God’s plan is not for us to be the same; instead He made us all different. God loves diversity! And in His kingdom, He uses our uniqueness to actually build unity. This Sunday we will discover how He does that as we continue through the book of Ephesians in our series This is Us. Hope you can join us. Services at 9 & 10:45 am.

#4) Hey Guys! We are having a special hang out time on Wednesday, July 24th, 6 pm, at church. There is food planned that will knock your socks off (man grub) along with other fun stuff. So whether you are brand new to our church or a 10 year veteran, plan to come. Feel free to invite a buddy. Nothing required to bring except yourself and an appetite.

#5) We are just a week and a half away from our children’s summer camp called Align and Art Camp. We have a group of people who have spent a lot of time planning a very creative week where the kids will have a blast and also learn about our wonderful Savior. This is something you don’t want your child to miss. It’s not too late to register. Click here to register.

Yours for the kingdom,

Pastor Jim
