Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As we enter into the fall season, with our various ministries beginning anew, we are reminded of our call to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:18-20) This is our call, our mission, and our purpose as a church of Jesus Christ. Along with this special call, we have the promise that Jesus shared with his disciples, “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

Please note throughout this edition of the Mouse, the many ministries in which we are sharing. Chews is a vital, missional church seeking to fulfill the mission which He has called us to fulfill.

Thank you for being a part of the mission team. Everyone is a valuable part of our mission. If you are not currently involved, we would love for you to become an active part of it.

We praise God for the wonderful blessing of Camp Chews this summer. Countless numbers of people gave their time, talents and financial gifts to make this endeavor a real success. I continue to hear about the joy and excitement of this Missional Event. I am also thrilled that we are receiving helpful and constructive ideas for improving the camp next year. Mark your calendars for August 3-7, 2020 for the second year of Camp Chews.

Wishing everyone a blessed fall and an exciting time of ministry., Please feel free to let me know of any needs or concerns within our community of faith. God bless you and keep you

Love always,

Pastor Bill

”Ghost Stories from the Bible”

In recent time, Halloween has become one of the most popular holidays in the United States. Stores are filled with candy, decorations, and party goods for the celebration of Halloween. It is hard to escape its influence on our culture today. Rather than avoid or ban Halloween as a church, we can remember that Jesus Christ is the light in the darkness, and God tells us: “Do not be afraid.”

Remind For Information

Recently the church has set up an informational texting system to relay information to the congregation. This system will be used to notify people of the need to move the Thursday night service indoors and other things we need to get the word out. It is easy to sign up. On you cell phone, text @636g4g to the “phone number” 81010. Pastor Bill, Emma or Janine will be sending out the Remind messages. You can respond to a message, and it will only be seen by us, not the entire group. If you have any questions, please see Janine.
