Apison Announcements! - Bulletin, Upcoming Events & Reminders

Weekend Update

Dear Church Family,

It is great to be back home! There's no place like home :)

Anna and I enjoyed a whirlwind of a trip visiting Reformation sites across the European continent with a group of pastors and teachers of the Georgia-Cumberland Conference. Here is a picture of us enjoying a Sabbath visit to the Waldensian valleys with the College of the Barbs in the background.
rom this humble location the Waldenses sent missionaries out to many of the surrounding nations of Europe. Mothers taught children how to memorize Scripture. Boys and girls committed large portions of Scripture to memory. And fathers often gave their lives in sharing the Scripture on missionary journeys. Their entire community was focused on spreading the Word! Their motto was "Into Darkness, Light." We are also living in a time of darkness, let us allow Him to shine through us!

VBS has been awesome this week!
I am so grateful for Pastor Ryan and his entire team. What a HUGE effort for our kids! Did you know that over half of the kids who attended our Vacation Bible School do not attend our church or school!? This is a real evangelistic opportunity.

In fact, today while VBS was happening a person driving by stopped and asked for information about what Adventists believe! We hope to have several non-Adventist guests with us tomorrow as we cap off a successful week of Vacation Bible School and celebrate communion together.

12 Weeks of Wisdom will be modified this week. I will send out a devotional on Ecclesiastes 8 for our Weekly Wednesday Video. But instead of meeting at the church, we will meet this Wednesday 7pm at the Imagination Station in Collegedale, TN. We have 500 frisbees left to pass out together to the crowds gathered for the 4th of July celebrations. Look for Pastor Ryan and myself with our Apison shirts and bags of Frisbees. See you Wednesday, July 3rd, 7pm at the Imagination Station.

I look forward to celebrating communion with you tomorrow,

Pastor Jason
