Jesus had three types of relationships. A relationship with his Father (UP), a relationship with His disciples (IN), a relationship with people that were distant from God (OUT).  This summer will have two Sundays entirely devoted to UP – two   Sundays entirely devoted to UP and IN – and two Sundays entirely devoted to UP and OUT.

Today is an “IN” Focus opportunity.  We celebrate Vacation Bible School from this past week during worship at 9:30 am. Then we have and “IN” opportunity – Party At The Park – This is informal time together.  We have reserved Apple Hill Park (1866 Central Blvd).  Our reservations include the picnic areas and bocce ball courts.  There are also restrooms and a playground available.  There is also some shade at this park (but you might want sunscreen and an umbrella.)  And, if no one is there we might be able to use the ball fields as well.  Pick up some food and bring it.  Bring food to grill (along with charcoal and utensils).  Bring your own (non-alcoholic) beverages.  Bring some lawn games and play with others (ladder ball, corn hole work great).  Enjoy the time with each other.
