Summer. I like summertime! I enjoy so many things about summer from grilling to picnics, more family time, to watching plants and flowers grow. (I’m one of those crazy people who would rather be warm/hot than cold.)
It is a time many of us take vacations, maybe a week, a couple of days or just a day trip or two to the Zoo, museum or Water park.
One sad thing about summertime is many of our plans exclude worshiping with our church family. Yes, we can worship God where ever we are. God’s creation is beautiful and to me sitting at a lake or in the mountains is a great place to view the master artist God is.
But let’s look at what worshiping with your church family is. It is a time of praising God in songs, listening to a pastor share from God’s Word, It also includes fellowship. That time that often we share what is on our minds and hearts. I have often come home from church with prayer requests I have learned about as I visit with people before and after worship.
As we each make our summertime plans, let’s not forget to include worshiping with our church family.
