As we look forward to our Homecoming picnic, I know we are all enormously grateful to Magic Mountain for letting us host this exciting event on their property. I’m also very grateful to them for their kindness in working with our suggestions to enhance this year’s Homecoming experience through the “Buy one ride bracelet, get one of equal or lesser value free” for kids to enjoy a couple rides in the FunZone. Parents, just remember that this offer is exclusive to Hillsiders who are attending the picnic (so be sure that you and your kids wear your name tags).

Friends, it’s been an amazing Grand Opening year and I truly believe we’re in for a fabulous fall season of going deeper in a growing relationship with the Lord through the “Believe” series. In addition to so many incredible blessings this summer (and there were many!), this week marked another special blessing to our ministry as we welcomed Penny Mollins to the staff as our new Executive Ministry Assistant. (If you missed this news, check out last week’s All In enews).

All In Enews

Penny is fitting in well already (thanks to Judy for all her help with the transition!) and I know you’ll want to welcome Penny to the team as she takes on this vital role.

In closing, would you join me in praying for God’s continued favour on all our efforts this fall? May we never take for God’s goodness and favour for granted. And may all that we say and do in this Grand Opening year continue to honour His name.

See you Sunday,

Pastor Jerry
