An Encouraging Word...

These are challenging days for several people in our church family.  This week alone, Yolanda Johnson’s mother died and Jean Mets’s father died.  I know you are praying for these women and for the grief their families are facing.  Others are struggling to find work, others are facing the stresses of moving.  There are plenty of concerns to bring before the Father’s Throne.
But sometimes in the midst of pain we need a good laugh, so let me try to make you smile with a little church humor.  The following are Ten Things You Never Hear in Church, at least I haven’t.

1. Hey! It's my turn to sit in the front pew!

2. I was so enthralled, I never noticed your sermon went 25 minutes over time.

3. Personally I find witnessing much more enjoyable than golf.

4. I've decided to give our church the $500 a month I used to send to TV evangelists.

5. I volunteer to be the permanent teacher for the Junior High Sunday School class.
6. Forget the denominational minimum salary. Let's pay our pastor so he can live like we do.

7. I love it when we sing hymns I've never heard before!

8. Since we're all here, let's start the service early.

9. Pastor, we'd like to send you to this Bible seminar in the Bahamas.

10. Nothing inspires me and strengthens my commitment like our annual stewardship campaign!
Pastor Torrey
