The Weekly Epistle 5/19/21

Leading people to life’s greatest goal.  That is the mission of On Goal Soccer Camp.  On their web page it states, “On Goal soccer camps combine intense skills and competitive paly in a fun and exciting atmosphere that kids love.  On Goal coaches from around the world have encouraged players to love soccer and love God.”
Each year since 2015, EBC has hosted On Goal soccer camp for the purpose of reaching families in our community for Jesus Christ. This year On Goal soccer camp is June 22-26. It is for ages K-9th grade.  We will end the week at camp with awards and picnic on Saturday. The picnic this year will be a box lunch format with the hope that families will hang around the park to eat and meet the coaches, staff, and EBC family.  
There are several ways you can help.  You can open up your home for a couple of the coaches to sleep each night (and provide a simple breakfast).  Contact Donna Green if you would like to host.  You can provide a lunch for the coaches or dinner at your home at the end of the day for the coaches.  See the meal train link below.  Check out the “On Goal service tree” Sunday for items we will need throughout the week.  Also, we need help with the picnic.  Contact Karen Bassett if you would like to help with this or any other questions you may have.
One other way you can help is provide scholarship money for our campers.  Each year there are many requests for financial help for families to send their kids to camp.  Any gift is helpful.  You can give online or drop money in the offering box at back of the sanctuary (mark your gift: “Scholarship”).
Leading people to life’s greatest goal.  That is what we are about at EBC as well.  As your pastor, along with elders and ministry leaders, we continually look for ways to best accomplish our church’s mission of making disciples by leading people to knowing Jesus and then helping them grow in knowing Him better.  Ministry leaders are in the process of determining the events and activities we are to be about doing in our next fiscal year that runs from September 1 thru August 31.  I have asked each ministry leader, and I am doing it as well, to list activities under four categories, “Definite do, desire to do, delay to do, and don’t do.”  Please pray for us as we seek the Lord on the main things we ought to be doing as a church.  
With this in mind, at the upcoming men’s breakfast, I will be sharing my vision with the men of the church for God’s call on us as men in serving Him and the local church.  Men, if you haven’t signed up, please do so asap.  There is a signup sheet in the back of the church or contact me or the church office to reserve your place at the breakfast on Saturday, June 5 @ 7:00 in the fellowship hall.
I remind you to set aside our “Prayer 30” dates: June 9, July 14, August 11, September 8.  We will come together for 30 minutes of prayer from 7:00-7:30 on these Wednesday nights outside at the gym parking lot (inside the gym if necessary).  We need to seek the Lord on several matters as a church, so I invite you to join with brothers and sisters in Christ for prayer.  
Blessings to you, Pastor Brian
