JCC 2017 Theme - God Held Captive
Dear JCC Friends and Family,
Greetings in Jesus' Name! I hope all is well with you and yours.
There is another Wonderful Wednesday this week on August 23. We will have a Family Picnic so invite family and neighbors to join us at 6pm. Please bring a dessert or snack to share - the rest will be provided. Following the picnic there will be some games to play, moon bounces, and some Wet and Wild outdoor fun. Bring a towel and dry clothes if you are going to participate. Please register to attend on VolunteerSpot.
Yesterday we heard the message "Captive to the Suffering Saint" as we continued our series "God Held Captive". God is doing some amazing things in and through the JCC Family. People are coming to know Jesus and growing in His grace. If you were unable to join us in Worship yesterday you can access the message on our website jccag.org after Wednesday and/or call the office and order a free CD. Remember if you are on vacation or visiting family in the closing "school vacation" season allow God to use you in bringing people closer to Jesus. Be a missionary. Also keep an eye out for new neighbors, colleagues and classmates to invite to one of our regular or special gatherings at JCC.
Speaking of Jesus' command to tell others of His goodness - on Sunday August 27 at 6pm Brenda Berchie, who grew up at JCC, will share what she has been up to the last couple of years. Hope you can join us.
This coming Sunday August 27 at 8:45 & 11am my message will be "What Song Are You Singing?". You might want to invite family and friends to join us to hear this very challenging message that everyone needs to hear.
At 8pm we will have our "We are the People" intercession for America that meets in the Sanctuary. Get in the rhythm of prayer that is changing the heart of the nation. If you cannot meet with us here at JCC please try to invest a minimum of 15 minutes between 6 and 9pm Sunday evening following the wearethepeople.me website or using the insert in the Sunday bulletin.

A big 'Thank You' to our willing and able volunteers. This week some great people helped out in so many ways to make our special events possible: the Lamb Center meals for the homeless, the Barton Family Memorial, the Rangers Dolly Sods Camp Out, the Men's & Women's Fellowship groups, and other "growing and showing" ministries that would never be possible except for your wonderful servant hearts. Together we are fulfilling the call to "Love People to Life" with these events and outreach opportunities.
Next Wednesday August 30 the Family Night Reset Button will be pushed. Our Boys and Girls Clubs - Rangers and Girl's Ministries will be back in session for the Fall season. Our families with children are receiving Invite Cards to share with classmates as they resume school activities. Encourage your children to share these cards.
Have a great week!
God Bless You!
