Greetings from the General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene! We have had an exciting week with tremendous Services of worship and praise and much business being accomplished for the Kingdom of God. Pray for the deliberations this week as our delegates from all over the world will work to set the course for the coming four years of International Ministry. What a joy to be a part of God's BIG Team!

Great things are also happening here at Lake Gibson church.

Many thanks to Pastor Duane Smith for bringing a powerful message to us this past Sunday. Thanks, also, to our great Staff members and their teams of volunteers who give of themselves so faithfully in Ministry.

Vacation Bible School for our children on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. is in full swing with more than 100 children involved. Pray for Pastor Kay Casey and her team as they minister each week.

Mission Nashville is less than 2 weeks away! Pray that our 22 teenagers, adult leaders, and Youth Pastor Ryan Welshans will have a very safe trip and return with a New Passion for reaching people for Jesus.

Independence Celebration! This Sunday, July 2, ONE SERVICE AT 10 A.M. I look forward to seeing you as we celebrate the blessings of our freedoms as Americans, but most of all, our Glorious Freedom in Christ! Remember - 10 A.M.

Let's all continue to pray for lost people around us. Ask God to use you to be a witness for Jesus to someone today.

God loves you. I love you. And that's the way it should be!

Interim Pastor
