I am sure your remember the magician inept Professor Hinkle from the show Frosty the Snowman. He continually proclaimed himself to be , “Busy, busy, busy.”
This is apt description of our church as well. Whenever colleagues, family or friends ask me to describe Covenant Church, I always being by saying this is a good group. I am enjoying my time here and growing to love the people. Then I always do my best imitation of Professor Hinkle and say we are, “Busy, busy, busy.” We are a busy group of Christians.
Let me quickly add there is nothing wrong with being busy as long as our focus isn’t on staying busy, but stays on the Lord Jesus Christ. During our Season of Jubilee, we are trying our best not to add more ministries, but, instead focus on those which we already do, and do them to the very best of our abilities.
As part of this focus on current ministries, this week we have set aside our Sunday worship service to remember all the good works we are doing. We will celebrate how well the Lord uses us. We will hear from those who made mission trips this past year. We will also redefine Professor Hinkle’s mantra. Instead of worrying about being busy. We will turn our business to the Lord and “Pray! Pray! Pray!”
Join us at 10:15 on Sunday in our sanctuary.
Grace and peace,
Pastor Steve Nofel
