Let’s pack the lobby with our “Love Day” items this Sunday at ValleyPoint!

Every parent has been there. The trip ahead is long. The travel schedule is tight. You hit the road with a full tank, confident in the plan. But twenty minutes down the highway you hear a small, squeaky voice from the backseat. The artillery begins to bombard you. The questions. Are we there yet? How much longer? Can we get something to eat? Questions from the backseat. You come to expect them. Every journey to a destination includes them. The same is true for the journey of faith.

Just like kids on a trip we get tired of the journey. We want to know when we can stop. We get tired of serving. We get tired of waiting. Occasionally, we grumble. 

On Sunday, we will discover that God’s people were in the right place to make the right decision. But the majority made the wrong one. The decisions you make affect those around you, just like the decisions the Israelites made at Kadesh. You can decide to grumble or be thankful. You can decide to turn away from God or turn toward God. You can decide to wander without purpose through life or follow God’s vision for your life. Just don’t forget that those in the backseat will be affected by your decisions.

I want to thank everyone who participated in our Friend Day last week. It was a good day. I’ll be giving an update on Sunday. It was fun seeing so many new faces. Even if your friend did not come this week, you never know what may happen. Thanks for extending those invites!    

Just For You…

+ OnPoint (6-12th grade students): “Donuts and apples” are served on Sundays at the middle school from 10:30-10:55am for all students. OnPoint meets this Sunday at the Bethel Road campus at 4:30pm.

+ Love Day – Sunday, October 18th: This is a “collection Sunday” where we gather items to give to organizations serving others. On this day, we will collect for Safe Harbor in West Chester. Safe Harbor’s mission is to provide shelter, food, and access to support services in a structured environment for homeless men and women in Chester County. Safe Harbor has an immediate need for NEW towels, washcloths, and toiletries (deodorant, razors, shaving cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste) for their facility. Bring any of these items with you on Sunday, October 18th, and ValleyPoint will take care of the rest. This is our chance to make a difference close to home!

+ Membership Class – Wednesday, October 21st: Join us at the Bethel Road Campus to discover more about the heartbeat of ValleyPoint Church. You will get a “behind the scenes” look at the what, how, and why of ValleyPoint. This class provides an opportunity to ask questions as well as meet other great people! Register here.

Let’s pack the lobby this Sunday with our “Love Day” items! See you soon…
