Good Morning Church Family,
Ann and I continue to be amazed at the relationship God has allowed us to experience with the members of New Piney Grove. He has blessed us in so many ways through you, and we will be eternally thankful to Him for you. Your words and acts of encouragement have given us unspeakable joy to serve you for these 29-plus years.
And because of our love for you, we want you all to prosper in health. So, let us remind you that COVID is not over. Unfortunately, I have had several relatives and friends test positive within the last two weeks. But those who were fully vaccinated only experienced minor symptoms. For this reason, we are requesting that you continue to follow the safety protocols during worship service.
I have noticed that more members read the WeekEnd Report more than any other form of communication I send out to the church. And for that, I am thankful. We are using this type of media to provide information to the church. Specific emails will be designed only for the NPG Staff, the Deacon Ministry, the women, and the men. But we also send out an NPGBC Special email that pertains to all with important information.
The system that we use for our emails is internet-based. I get a report on the number of recipients who read our emails. Less than 50% read God’s Word for NPG Today, and about 60% read our NPG Special. I will continue to do my best to keep the church informed of church matters. So, please read all emails from the church to stay updated with events.
We are making plans to restart Sunday morning Faith Development lessons on the first Sunday, September 4th, at 8:30 AM. This will be another step in getting our ministry back to full operations.
Finally, continue to pray for God’s will in the process of transition. We love you all.
– Pastor Dave & Mrs. Ann
Sowing HIS Seeds, While It Is Day
Men's Ministry Gender Study: Tomorrow, Sunday, June 26, the men of NPG will gather in the Worship Center for our monthly session from 8:30 - 9:30 AM. Our brother Nathan Amest will facilitate part two of "The Reward For Being A Godly Example" (Daniel 1:3-9).
Faith Pledge: Don't forget your pledge when the LORD blesses. A “Faith Pledge” is not a promise of funds; it is believing that God will provide extra above and beyond our income. We are praying for the increase of every member. Continue to look for God's expected blessings.
