Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Let’s talk about goals! I love to have goals. It’s good to have goals. In normal times I tend to organize my life around goals like, “Have Task A finished by noon” or “Be ready to move forward with Project #7 by December 1”, etc. Goals are not promises, they are expression of what we hope to accomplish by a given time. They help us plan and organize our life together as we seek to be faithful to God in the things He calls us to do.

This year, 2020, has been hard on those of us who like to set goals! It seems like every plan we make has to have an asterisk (*) by it. Maybe things will work out as planned, maybe they won’t. For those of us who are planners by nature, this can be deeply unsettling as every plan becomes provisional.

With all that said, I have a goal in mind as I try to look past this present craziness and move us forward as a church. I would like to see (hope to see, pray to see) the return of our Sunday School classes soon after the first of the year. My “goal” would be Sunday, January 10th. Again, a goal is not a promise. It’s what we hope we can accomplish. In this case, there are several things that need to happen for us to meet this goal. They are as follows:

1. We need a teacher for the infants Sunday School Class. This is very important so that our young moms can be free to participate. If you are interested in helping with this class, please let us know

2. We need a teacher for our youth, young women’s class. We don’t have to have this class, but it would be helpful. Pray the Lord will provide a teacher.

3. We need the situation with the virus to “calm down” so we can move forward with the restoration of our classes and our joint worship service. So please pray!

My family is traveling this weekend, so see you next week!
