Greetings Resurrection Blue Springs,

It was fun seeing everyone picking up their BE Campaign shirts and yard signs on Sunday. I look forward to seeing where these signs and t-shirts pop up. A couple weeks ago, we saw one of our Love Your Neighbor signs high in the Colorado mountains. I pray this encouragement to be just, kind and humble has a far reach this fall. If you pre-registered for a t-shirt or yard sign, you can pick those up at Connection Point after worship or during office hours (M-Th, 10 AM - 3 PM). We also have a second opportunity now through September 25 to order t-shirts. Here is the link.

It was also great, on Sunday, to welcome eight adults and three children to membership at our Coffee with the Pastor and to hear how you made these new members feel welcome when they began attending Blue Springs. It makes my heart happy to hear this. There will also be an Online Coffee With the Pastors session on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 6:30 - 8:30 PM. You can register for the Online session HERE. We’ll recognize and welcome our new members this coming Sunday in worship.

As part of our upcoming BE campaign, we announced a couple of new learning opportunities. First is a class on The Politics of Jesus, offered by Chris Condra and second is Common Ground a six-week series of fun and engaging exercises, where groups will learn to better see and hear one another, improve their ability to engage with each other, and find deeper self-understanding. I hope you’ll consider taking part. You’ll find more information on these classes below.

I look forward to sharing our last message from our study of the letter of James in the New Testament as he shares practical wisdom for imperfect Christians. This weekend we turn to what James has to say about prayer and community.

Stay cool on this last day of summer! It’s going out with a sizzle.
