Tom Berlin’s August 22 eNote
It an exciting time of year. Schools just started in Loudoun County and will start next week in Fairfax County, and this Sunday we will bless our children, teachers, administrators and everyone who works in education, including the Floris Preschool. It’s an exciting time of year! Parents, please bring your child’s backpack to worship on Sunday. We want to make a big deal about education. It is such an important time for our children, and we will be praying for everyone associated with the new school year. We will also be giving away Bibles to third graders at the 9:15 and 11 a.m. services. If you haven’t signed up your 3rdgrade child to receive their Bible yet, now is the time to do that. You can sign up online.
This Sunday we will have the Group Life Fair. We honor God by reading God’s word, meeting in small groups and expanding what we know about God’s ways and the ways of Christ. I encourage you to stop by the Gathering Space on Sunday. All of the Group Life information will also be available online.
Finally, when you come to church this Sunday, you will see that renovations are happening. Downstairs we have a new second floor welcome area, an updated nursery space for older children and an updated Student Ministries space. A lot is happening here at Floris, come by and check it out!
