Now that we have made it past the cold winter months it's time to enjoy the warmer more pleasant months. May is a month of celebrations. We honor our mothers on Mother's Day and it is also the time in which students graduate from school. There are graduation ceremonies and parties almost every weekend. It means traveling to see our friends and relatives walk across the stage to receive a diploma or degree. May is also the time when most children get out of school for the summer. That means families have the opportunity to go on vacation.While spring and summer are considered vacation time and fun time it is a challenging period for many congregations. Because people are traveling church attendance is down. Moreover, giving is down during the summer. I encourage people to take time off, however, the church can never take time off. As long as people are hurting the church has work to do. The is no vacation when it comes to Kingdom Building. So, as you are preparing to take time off this vacation season please remember (in your giving) that the work of the church must continue on. If you can't make it to worship on Sundays try to worship with us on Wednesday nights. It is also important to remember that we should not rob God by giving our tithes to our travel agent. What belongs to your agent belongs to your agent and what belongs to God belongs to God. Have a great summer!
