There is a saying that goes something like this: There are those who make things happen; those who watch things happen; and those who wonder what happened. Within the Lord’s church, we find this statement to be somewhat true. It is inevitable, no matter the size of the congregation, there will be people you can always count on when work needs to be done. They make things happen, and get things done. In fact, nearly all of the work the Lord’s church accomplishes can be attributed to their efforts. This group is typically called, “The core.” For obvious reasons, the core group is not without mistakes. Yet, they are the ones who are always willing to jump in and get their hands dirty. They are the ones who are willing to bear the weight, carry the load, and work through the mistakes.
This week marks the 44th Teen Campaign here at Arnold. This year the teens have gone to Paducah, KY to help the Central church of Christ conduct a Vacation Bible School and evangelize the community.
July is a month full of fun and exciting times. We have 4th of July and are in the middle of this beautiful time we know as summer. While some are lucky to have the time off, others have to work. Regardless of work schedules, July is the most popular summer vacation month. Many of us have had fun and memorable times on vacations throughout the years but we cannot forget a few vital things when on vacation.
Summer time has certainly arrived. The warm weather, the outdoor activities, longer hours of sunshine. Farmers are busy growing the crops for us to consume, and many other things are happening that are too numerous to name.
