JULY: Rest Before Relaunch
The WCAG Leadership has chosen the month of July as a time of rest and abiding for those who serve so faithfully in our ministries. Practically, this means we will have....
In the Scripture, there are many examples in both Testaments of the balance between resting & working, and abiding & fruitfulness (John 15:1-8). Jesus knew how to order his time in terms of being WITH His father and DOING the work of the Kingdom.
As a church, we desire to take this month to spend time as a whole, abiding in God and allowing him to prune areas in our lives and our church in order for us to be able to bear more fruit. After a month of rest we will relaunch things with VBS starting July 30 and move into the fall season as a refreshed and recharged worshiping family on mission!
