I'll admit to you that I'm starting to get excited about the fall. This has nothing to do with Pumpkin Spice Lattes (I take my coffee black). I'm not huge into cozy sweaters (although I'll admit that I've got a few in my closet) and I'm not really excited about raking leaves.
So what am I excited about? A few things come to mind but top of the list is The Story-Formed Way. I've been writing and talking about this for a few weeks now and I hope you'll plan to attend.
The Story-Formed Way is a day for us to immerse ourselves in Big Picture story of God. We'll be using material from our friends at Saturate which helps us journey from creation to restoration in order to see more of who God is and how He has and is working in our world.
The Story-Formed Way is great for anyone who is already following Jesus because it gives us reminders and new insights about the gospel. It is also great for anyone who doesn't yet follow Jesus as it introduces them to the story of God and His work in and through Jesus.
So, I again invite you to plan to join me on Saturday, September 16th from 8:30am to 5:30pm as we listen to God's story and take time to dialogue about it. I guarantee you'll come away with some new understandings about Jesus!
Please take time to pre-register so that we'll have a good idea of how many people will be attending. We'll take care of lunch and coffee breaks and registration is by donation.

This Sunday (September 10th) we're returning to the Gospel of Luke and exploring the teachings of Jesus in a series called "Upside-Down Kingdom" If you have an opportunity, please read Luke Chapter 6 before we gather together on Sunday.
We're prayerfully planning to have a baptism service this fall! Are you interested in getting baptized? Maybe you're wondering what baptism is all about? Maybe you've got questions about baptism? Connect with Pastor Brad to find out how you can be baptized this fall!
Family Meal is on this Thursday! Come to the church building around 5:30pm for a hamburger or hot dog and plan on some great conversation.
On Sunday Heidi shared our most recent financial update. We're very thankful to be almost on budget as of the end of July (We're in the red by around $600). Thank you for your continued faithful giving to the minstries of Zion Baptist Church. CLICK HERE if you'd like to give online via PayPal.
