who ya bringin'?

Below is the email I sent to the church family last week. Turns out it reached only the folks with K-Z last names. Check out the banner over Higuera. . .

Beloved Family of Grace,

I can hardly believe that summer is passing and the fall is upon us. Our Fall Kick-Off Celebration is next Sunday, September 16. If you've come to Grace over the last year, you're going to be blown away at how we turn turn the inside out to bring the outside in. You don't want to miss it! If you've been around for a while, then you know what an exciting Sunday this is. We're going to send you more detailed instructions next week, but for this week, I wanted to ask you again those three questions I asked last Sunday. . . .

1. Are You Coming? If you are, we need to hear from you so we can plan for lunch. Visitors and guests on that day eat for free. For the rest of us, the charge for lunch is $6.00 per person. If you have not filled out a Sunday tab, call the church office at 543.2358, respond to this email right now, or fill out the tab on Sunday.

2. How are You Helping? This HUGE day requires the service of all. We've got a good group for set up. We could use some more help in the Fun Zone and for the Clean-up Team. And we can never have enough Greeters/Welcome Team folks. Use the tab in this week's worship folder to sign-up to serve. Remember, this Fall at Grace, Everybody Plays.

3. Who are You Inviting? Folks who might not darken the door of the church, just might be willing to come to a celebration and picnic in the park. Many in our community will see the banner over Higuera St. this next week and about 4000 homes will receive postcard mailers, but we see these as supportive and complementary means of invitation. MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, NEIGHBORS AND CO-WORKERS NEED A PERSONAL INVITATION! In this Sunday's Worship Folder you'll find an invite card. We've also included an electronic copy below that you can forward to friends via email.

It's going to be a great day! Start praying now that the Lord will be lifted high, that we might serve with gladness, and that our community would feel warmly welcomed!

Because of and for the Gospel. . . Pastor Tim
