Howdy! Deer Creek Charge has received our fair share of rain this week…but the sun is out and the temperature is rising! It makes me want to celebrate! Speaking of celebrations…next Sunday (May 23) will be Pentecost…the birthday of the Christian Church! We are going to have a celebration! Make sure to come on out next Sunday as we remember who we are and whose we are! Stayed tuned for details!

This week, we are observing Ascension Sunday…that’s when Jesus was taken up in a cloud to heaven after spending 40 days on the earth after his death and resurrection. It’s a really cool story…and it’s told several times in the Bible! One place is Acts 1:1-11 if you want to get a head start on the scripture passage for the week. You’ll have to come on out on Sunday morning to find out the other place(s) the story is told! The sermon title is “God’s Waiting Room,” and talks about being caught in a “limbo-liminal-already, but not yet” state of being…what it means to do some “holy waiting.” And yup, it has to do with the Ascension too! Intrigued? Come and join us…we’d LOVE to have you!

Not a whole lot of announcements this week…but several that are coming up this week! Won’t you be there?
