Can you believe August is already here? I received word from Barry that things are going well in Vermont and they have had some successful events/outreaches. Continue to pray for Barry and Ann as they are on this mission trip. I am so excited to see what God is doing at WHCC, can you sense God is up to something? Lets all continue to pray that God leads us as we are learning together and inviting others to become committed followers of Jesus Christ. Is there someone you have met this week who you need to invite to church? Don't hesitate, take them out to coffee before church and then sit with them during the service. As I talk with visitors and guests we have at church I am so encouraged by what they say about their visit. One of the main things people are telling me is that they feel welcome. Thank you for being such a sweet and welcoming group!
 
Just a reminder that we are going to take Wednesdays in August off and will begin our prayer times the first Wednesday in September.
 
A verse I have been thinking about a lot:
John 14.21 (Jesus speaking) Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.
 
Here is a great quote to think about, substitute 'church' for 'workplace' and it takes on a whole new meaning.

“Every time you open your mouth, you influence the culture of the workplace. You have the opportunity to change and improve employee morale, engagement, and productivity. You can affirm worth and potential by providing encouragement and showing support for your people. You can ignite a fire within people.”― Michael Simpson, Unlocking Potential: 7 Coaching Skills That Transform Individuals, Teams, and Organizations
If you have been waiting to get some exercise, read this article. Exercise is the miracle drug, talk to your Dr. before you start a program, but get going it will help you a ton!
 
Mom's you will immediately get this, all others will just laugh...watch here.
 
On a personal note, please pray for me as I have to be strong on 8/16 as I have to drop off my girl at DBU. I know she will do great and it is only 30 minutes away...but this may be difficult for 'dad.'
 
Thanks!

Onward,
 
Chris
