To my Grove family,
Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen, it is blowing like crazy out there. I hope you don’t have to do many things outside today as you might just get blown away. I am thankful we didn’t have this wind last week during our Rummage Sale! I want to thank you once again for making such an impossible looking task with that huge pile of “treasures” turn out to be such an organized, successful sale. Jennifer Reed did another amazing job, as did the hundreds of you who volunteered to price, organize, pick up, sort, clean, and sell the thousands of pieces of merchandise we went through. It is a wonderful sight when God’s people are working together…Thank You! And the $53,500 gross income will help us purchase a much needed van for our church. You and your gift of service are such a blessing!
Daylight Saving Time Begins
Please remember that Daylight Saving Time begins and we SPRING FORWARD this Sunday. The bad news is we will be losing an hour of sleep on Saturday night, but the good news is it will be light for an extra hour each day after work! I’m thinking giving up an hour of sleep for a season of light is worth it!
For this week’s message my title is a bit different, “Dirty Thoughts and Sexual Choices Prove Allegiance,” and it comes right out of the first half of Ephesians 5. Most people when they read Ephesians 5 think it is a chapter on submission, which I will deal with, but the real emphasis is in the first half of the chapter. If you will read chapter 5 you will be ready for the messages that will be shared this weekend. Pastor Daniel will also be preaching on this passage at Sunday Night at The Grove this weekend.
Can you believe that Easter is going to be here soon? We need some help for our closing song which will be spectacular! Here is a note from Adam and Christina:
