Meetings with Hotdogs
Dear Church Family,
Our semi-annual Congregational Meeting is only about three weeks away. What? You don’t seem terribly excited. I get it. Congregational meetings are not typically the stuff of life-altering discussions and riveting gospel-exchanges. But they do provide a great opportunity to hear about (and praise God for) what He is doing in our church.
For example, as part of the meeting, we will be adding twenty-two new members to Northpoint. That’s nearly two-dozen people who have recently completed the Discovering Membership class and who are eager to covenant together with us in this spiritual journey as a family of faith. Also, we will hear about the ways the Lord has blessed our church financially. By God’s grace, and because of your consistent generosity, we will significantly surpass last year’s monetary giving and last year’s budgeted income. Those are huge blessings!
Finally, I will also do some brief vision casting, as it relates to our search for a full-time Director of Worship, the church’s response to the recent Supreme Court ruling, and the elders’ new church planting initiative. Believe me: 60 Minutes has got nothing on the climactic tension of these topics.
Nevertheless, in case those things don’t capture and hold your interest, this year we’re doing something completely new: We are having our Annual All-Church Picnic immediately after the aforementioned Congregational Meeting, complete with free tubular steaks (as Pastor Brent calls them) and chips. So, don’t miss out on your chance to hear some vital news concerning your church; plus, who can say, “No,” to succulently grilled hotdogs?
