Na-na-na-na, Na-na-na-na, Hey-hey-hey, Good-bye!

Did you sing it out loud? I did. This is a common song sung at this time of year. After all, another school year has ended and it is time to say goodbye. Goodbye to getting up early, homework, projects, school lunches and bus rides; a list that that young kids and college students are welcoming with great anticipation.

But what about church?  I didn’t see that on the list. Is that something that we need to say goodbye to, now that school is out? I surely hope not. In fact, I think that school being out allows a family more time to spend with God. Not only coming to worship on Sundays, but at home through family devotions and prayer.

 “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”  Hebrews 10:25

It is a great privilege to come into God’s presence in public worship…

 “In worship we are personally involved with God and He with us. We are also in fellowship with other members of God’s family. Here we give and receive mutual encouragement and experience spiritual growth which brings glory to God.” (I Have Good News for You, p. 76. Rev. Donald F. Ginkel)

The summer months are a perfect opportunity to get reacquainted with God’s gift to you His Son Jesus  Christ. I hope to be able to share that time with you during the coming months.

In His Service,
