Hub City Weekly Update

Hey everybody,

I want to begin by saying a huge THANK YOU to all of you who worked so hard to make our first Movies in the Park of 2011 such a success. It went great because of you! Thank you for giving your time. Thank you for serving. Thank you for reaching out to people. Thank you for making Spartanburg a better place to live, work and play. Don't forget, the next movie is June 18. We're showing Despicable Me.

I know summer is a time of travel and relaxation. I do hope that you can make the most of this summer by stepping out of some of your usual routines to relax and refresh. At the same time I there are a couple of things that I want to encourage you to not take a break from. More than anything, I want for you to grow as a disciple of Jesus this summer. I want you to hear from God and do what he says. In order for that to happen here are a few things to not take a break from this summer.
  • If you're in town, don't take a break from worship. I think God is going to do some incredible stuff in your lives this summer if you'll make yourself available to him.
  • Don't take a break from giving. Traditionally the summer is a time when people take a break from giving. But as we've talked about, giving is a direct reflection of your heart. It's been my experience that there is a direct correlation between giving tithes and offerings and spiritual growth. You can give online at You can mail your tithes and offerings to PO Box 55, Moore, SC 29369. I think the summer is a great time to "test" God in this area (This is the only area in the Bible where God says, "test me.").
  • Don't take a break from serving. The summer is a great time to try out a new ministry. Volunteer in the kids area. Be a greeter for the day. Learn how to do the presentation software. Show up early to setup. We have a place for you to get involved.
  • Don't take a break from inviting. Your unchurched friends just might be willing to take a chance on church this summer. Don't miss the opportunity to invite them.
  • Finally, don't take a break from Hub Groups. We have Hub Groups meeting at various times over the summer. Some will continue to meet every week. Others, like mine, will meet every other week. If you're not in a Hub Group now is a great time to get connected.
I believe God wants to do some great things in and through us this summer.

Your friend and pastor,
