Update from Pastor Jeremy – September 9, 2022
Hello Creekside family. Pastor Jeremy here with a quick video message for you.
Well, it’s hard to believe that school is back in session and that September is upon us. It has flown by quickly this summer. It’s hard to believe that we are inching closer to fall. Our family is going to be back this Sunday. It was nice to have some time away to recharge our batteries a bit before we head back into this fall season with many things that are going to be happening.
So this Sunday, we are excited to have our Volunteer Sign-up and Appreciation Day. This is a day where we’re going to present all of the things that you can participate in at Creekside. And there’s going to be some new things that you can sign up to help out at also. Our church is an amazing church. Thank you so much for your participation and the many things you do to make our Sundays happen. That was one of the things that was presented to us even before we got here, that this church is hands-on. And so we know that there’s going to be lots of sign-ups that are going to happen this Sunday for some of the new areas and some, even those areas that have made Sundays work for the last 14 years here at Creekside that we need your help in.
So it’s also our Soup Sunday. I’m excited that we can have soup together, to fellowship with one another, really to get back and call everyone back. Hey, we’re meeting again even though we never stopped meeting, but we’re back for this fall season, kicking things off, appreciating you, spending time together and worshiping our King.
Also September 18th is going to be our Block Party. I’m going to talk more about this on Sunday and there’s some stuff in my email you can look at here. This is essentially us saying, “Hey, we’re new to this area and we just want to say, hey, we’re here” and offer those around us a hot dog and some live music and there will be a bouncy castle and some snow cones. So really just, “Hey, we’re new to the community here. We want to say hi and we want to bless you and we want you to know that we’re here.”
And so there’s going to be some help that’s going to be needed to make this happen on September 18th. There’s going to be some sign-ups this upcoming Sunday for that too. So stay tuned for this on Sunday and in the upcoming emails. We really need your help next Sunday after church to just welcome people to the community that is around us now and let them know, “Hey, we’re here” and just saying hi, being friendly, answering questions, chatting with them, and just being present in our new community.
So that’s all I got. See you this Sunday and have a great rest of your weekend.
