Worship attendance was up Sunday and almost all our choir was present, too. My heart overflows with gratitude for the commitment of everyone who participates in worship each week. Thank you, Lord for the faithfulness You model for us everyday. May God be magnified as we prayerfully seek His perfect will to be accomplished not only in us at Alta Woods but also across our land.
This week marks the end of summer break for Chancel Choir. Hope you experienced a refreshing time of renewal in these weeks. Soon both choirs will be in full swing as God’s plan for us unfolds this season. Even when attendance is up and down, we are committed to God’s calling upon our lives to serve in this place.
God’s Word exhorts us often to be people of joy: “May the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.” Psalm 68:3 . . . “I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.” Habakkuk 3:18 . . . “Be joyful always.” I Thessalonians 5:16. Let these words of scripture inspire us to let our joy be evident to everyone. It’s a great way to spread the Good News of Jesus without using words!
Looking ahead …
