Greetings Resurrection Blue Springs!

Yesterday I cried when I saw pictures of our 6-year-old granddaughter Lula’s wheelchair being loaded onto the school bus for her first day of kindergarten. Hers will be a different experience than most children, but we weren’t sure we would ever see this day with her special needs. I have been especially grateful this week for every person that offers their lives for the sake of our children’s education and care. I don’t believe you get the kudos you deserve, especially this year with all the additional challenges the pandemic has added to your schedules. Thank you to each one of you serving in our schools!

As school has begun for most now, this Sunday we want to bless our students. So, if you are able, join us for the Back to School Blessing Drive-Thru this Sunday from 4:30–5 pm in our parking lot. We have special treats for all our students. We’ll also have the September Family Experience kit for KiDSCOR families to pick up. Then join us for another outdoor, socially-distanced Worship Watch Party on the Back Lawn at 5 pm. Bring a lawn chair, a mask, your own water, and your family! At the end of the service we’ll have some live music and a prayer for our students and educators.

This weekend in Worship, Pastor Adam continues our sermon series, Finding Joy in the Midst of Adversity as we look at scripture passages from the second chapter of Philippians.

Also, don't forget to order your awesome “Love Your Neighbor” t-shirt celebrating Resurrection’s 30 years of ministry. We are planning events during the entire month of October to blanket the city with a message to #LoveYourNeighbor. You are invited to purchase a special 30th Anniversary t-shirt to wear during the month and beyond. We are picking up part of the cost, so shirts are only $5 with all sizes available, toddler through 4XL.

We need your t-shirt orders by Tuesday, September 15. You can pick up your t-shirt at our 30th Anniversary kick-off event on Saturday, October 3, or have it mailed directly to you for an additional shipping cost of $9.95 per order. To see the design and order your shirt, click here.

Have a wonderful weekend. I hope to see you on Sunday.

In Christ,

Pastor Penny
