Notice:  Usher Badges are disappearing!  It is very easy to forget to take them off and put them away after ushering.  Please check your jackets and pockets at home if you have recently ushered.  We have lost 3 badges in the last four weeks.  Two others went missing about 6 months ago.  These are expensive to replace.  If found please return them to the box in the narthex, the church office or Carol Thomas.  Thanks.

Celebrate Together – by Dave Branon

Holidays hold different meanings for different people—but one thing is for sure: We all like to have a reason to celebrate.

As I stood on a lakeshore one summer holiday and saw the hundreds and hundreds of people boating, swimming, picnicking, or simply walking together, I thought of the value of celebrating important events together with friends and loved ones.

Did you ever try to celebrate something alone? A fireworks display isn’t much fun if there’s no one to “ooooh and aaaah” with. Picnics need people. Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations—they all go better with lots of friends and relatives around.

As Christians, we have much to celebrate—and not alone or just a few times a year! We’re to meet regularly with others who follow Christ, to encourage one another in love and good works (Hebrews 10:24-25), and to celebrate the goodness of the Lord. The psalmist encouraged all people to recall “the works of God” and lift their voices together in praise to Him (Psalm 66:5-8).

Let’s celebrate God’s love and goodness with those who share our excitement. God’s outpouring of His grace, mercy, and daily provision are just a few of the many reasons to rejoice!  

If you know Christ, you always have a reason to celebrate.
