In just a few weeks we will begin our new fall line-up of small groups and various ministry opportunities and outreaches. We will kick it all off on Sunday, Sept. 9th at 10 a.m.! I am working on a new series that will help teach us how to deal with difficult circumstances and people the Bible way. We will have special guests Jon, Kate & family from the reality T.V. show on Discovery Health and TLC called "Jon & Kate plus 8." On that week we will be talking about what to do when life doesn't go as planned. Google them and check out their story if you're unfamiliar with their show. We will also be opening our newly re-designed children's wing on that day! All I need now is the name of the series so that I can begin to promote and market it. That's where you come in.

Please post your ideas and if I choose yours I will give you a $25 gift certificate to the restaurant of your choice. Let the creative juices flow! Remember, the theme is how to deal with difficult people and circumstances.

In another place, it says that no person has ever seen, heard, or even imagined the wonderful things that God has in store for those who love the Lord. But notice that it's acco
