Well what a week it has been for my first week back. We had a great turnout for our Fall GROW Kickoff with over a 100 people and several new families. Not even the rain could dampen everything including all¬†the fun, food, and inflatables, and we have a crew at Beersheba Springs Assembly this weekend enjoying a retreat time. And Susan is in her happy place at the Kentucky State Fair. Right before our local world gets crazy on Monday ūüôā¬†Make sure you scroll down and see all the details on the¬†Total Eclipse Tailgate on Monday¬†( we have a limited number of¬†approved glasses¬†for those attending¬†for a donation to cover cost…¬†you can reserve yours by contacting¬†Tiffany Smith¬†who is heading this event).
Tomorrow we continue the second part of SERVE Summer and Discovering How to Love Where we Live. We started by considering that to become a world changer the first thing that needs to change is us.¬†Now this week we consider something that maybe is hard for you. That you and I are God’s heroes. Many of us like to watch hero movies, they are the most popular at the box office nowadays and many of us grew up reading comic books about heroes. But those aren’t the only kind of heroes that are out there.
