A WORD FROM BROTHER JOE
Hey, Summit Family, it’s hard to believe that right in the middle of these “triple digit” temperatures, and with families taking vacations while school is out, we are watching our Sunday morning attendance grow larger each week! There’s real excitement among our people as we meet many “first-time” visitors every time we gather to worship! Many of you are inviting, and even bringing with you, guests to our services. That only happens when members of our fellowship are being blessed, themselves, and want to have their loved ones, friends, and co-workers experience the same thing! God, through His Precious Holy Spirit, is moving mightily in our presence, as we share in fellowship, worship, prayer, and the study of His Word! WHO WOULD WANT TO MISS THIS? Certainly, not me!! I can hardly sleep on Saturday nights anticipating what Sunday morning is going to bring! ARE YOU MISSING IT? Let me, totally, and very forwardly, be honest with all of you reading these words. There are some who receive our weekly email who have either “gotten their feelings hurt”, are “mad about something”, or “with someone”, have become “lukewarm”, or are just “lazy” on Sunday morning; you have become “unfaithful” to The Lord, and the gathering of His Church! It’s time to COME HOME!! You need it, and you are missed at Summit! You once were a vital part of this congregation; your life was happy, and you were fulfilled; knowing you were “right with Your Creator” and “on your way to Heaven!” Don’t let Satan STEAL YOUR JOY!! Get back in the “faithful habit” of “not forsaking the assembling of yourself, together, with God’s people!” I guarantee you; you’ll be GLAD YOU DID!! This Sunday I’m continuing my new sermon series entitled “Seven Fatal Flaws” and, appropriately, the sin we’re dealing with this week is “SLOTHFULNESS”. I pray I’ll see you Sunday morning at 10:00. Never forget, “Jesus Loves You & So Do I”, always!!
