Dear Point Hope,

It is my prayer that you are having a great week and summer! I hope you are enjoying our series in Mark on discipleship. I look forward to seeing my group tomorrow night! Please come even if you have haven’t come before. We meet at 5:30 and we will be finished promptly at 7. We would love to have you.

As a mission project this summer we would like to bless the local schools with some new or gently used children’s books. These donations will honor Cynthia Graham Hurd who was a librarian and was killed at Mother Emmanuel A.M.E. church. Please bring books to Point Hope this Sunday and place on our Missions Shelves out in the Gathering Space. Pam Haskell, our Missions Co-Chair, will drop off the books for us. Let’s help get kids reading this summer by supporting this book drive! What a fantastic way to be a disciple.

We are doing great at our 9:30 worship hour! I am so thankful for those of you who recognize that true discipleship is not about US- what we want but is all about serving others. I love what Sara Rogers shared: It is not about me! Wow. Life changing statement for me for sure.

Weekly challenge question: What have you done this week that was not about you? How have you served someone?

Many Blessings and much peace!

In Christ,
Pastor Elizabeth
