Even though I’m a fan of technology, it seems like there’s no escaping it, even if you wanted to. In our modern, digital world, it’s easy to work around the clock: our cell phones are always on and everyone expects their text messages and emails to be answered instantaneously.
I wanted to take a moment to write to everyone concerning a very special event taking place here at the church called, “See You At The Altar”.
See You at the Altar is a day set aside (the fourth Wednesday each September) for parents and grandparents to gather and pray for their children at the beginning of the school year. The day for See You at the Altar corresponds with the day for See You at the Pole, a national day of prayer for students to meet at their school’s flagpole to pray.
Well, it’s almost that time again! What “time” you may ask? Well, I certainly don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s time to go back to school for students all across our nation. I believe this does not have to be bad news though, as many students are excited about going back into their schools to shine the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in powerful ways.
We would like to take this opportunity to send an invitation to the entire church family to join us for a very special service on Sunday (DATE) at (TIME) when we will have a time of prayer for all the students that will be returning to school in the Fall.
Each year, as Lent approaches, many Christians find themselves asking what they should “give up for Lent.” Though it is not mandatory for a Protestant believer to do so, it has become a tradition in many denominations to fast or abstain from something (food, vices, or other daily enjoyments).
