Awesome Day At The Lake

This morning, Pastor Doug shared from a favorite portion of Scripture (Isaiah 43) awesome message on "Fear Not, I Am With You"...   And then off we headed to Orono Lake for our annual Sunday School picnic!  It was a picture perfect day and the food and fellowship was very special!   The kids had an awesome time riding the boat and tubing, thanks to Tim!!   But the highlight of the day was witnessing three young people being baptized...God is so good!!

Just a reminder that we will not be having Kids Klub or Youth Group this Wednesday (August 29th) because of public school orientations!

Night to Unite Minnesota

What an awesome "Night to Unite Minnesota" event we had at the church tonight!!!   Special thanks to Pat Jenson Stables from coming!  She and her team brought two "trick" horses plus two ponies...the neighbor kids had an awesome time with the the horse and pony rides...oh, the wonder in their eyes!   It was so good to meet some new neighbors...and it was pretty neat to have both the Anoka Police and Anoka Fire Department stop at our neighborhood gathering!   Special thanks to everyone who had a part in making this such a fun night!

August Is Awesome

It's a busy month at Anoka Wesleyan during the month of August!    On Sunday morning, August 5th, Andrea Swarthout, Global Partners missionary to Japan, will be sharing in the morning worship service at 10:45 am!   Come expecting a blessing!

We're having a block party on Tuesday evening, August 7th, as we participate in "Night to Unite Minnesota" from 6-8 pm.   There will be games, food, giveaways, and even a trick horse!   Come and meet our neighbors!

It's also Vacation Bible School the week of August 12th - our theme is "Sky"  Come discover that by trusting God, everything is possible!  There will be classes for ages 3-99 (kids must be potty trained)!  Registration and Kickoff will be on Sunday evening (Aug 12th) from 6-7:30 pm.   Regular classes will be from 6-8:30 pm Monday through Friday (Aug 13th-17th).  On Friday night, the parents of the kids are invited to attend VBS along with their kids!  

And last of all, we'll have a day at the lake following our morning service on August 26th.   The picnic lunch will start at 1 pm at Orono Park (Shelter #1) in Elk River.  Meat will be provided for grill...bring a dish or two to share!   We will also be having a baptism service while we are there!  See Pastor Doug if you are wanting to be baptized.

We look forward to seeing you at these special events, but until they arrive, would you be praying that these outreach events would be an awesome time of sharing Jesus?   Thanks so much!

P.S.  Special thanks to all those who have been helping with the porch project at the church!  The next work day is Saturday, August 11th!
