Summer Serve
Our North Carolina Mission Trip had to be cancelled due to logistical issues. But we will be having two days of local mission service called Summer Serve. June 18 we will serve at the Moore Food Bank from 8 – Noon. And on June 20 we will serve the Foxfire Neighborhood where the Swain’s live. Help us reach our neighbors for Christ.

Love Your Neighbor
Pastor Mark when talking about the Great Commission will usually mention Neighbors and Nations. These are not just words, but a vision, a mission, and a plan. He intends to lead our church to fulfill the Great Commission by reaching locally and globally. Love Your Neighbor is our local mission. 
Jesus gave us a great command, “to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt. 22:36-40). We have been asking the question, “What would it look like to do this literally?”. You can find out more by following this link to our website: Love Your Neighbor. You can help by being present at one of the host homes, by providing food or drink for a host home, by helping to pass out flyers as invitations to the host home in a neighborhood, and by praying on the night of each Love Your Neighbor Parties. Prayer times will occur at the church on June 30, August 4, and September 8.

Resolved
“Let there be something of benevolence, in all that I speak.” (Edwards, 1723) Jonathan Edwards in his Resolutions thought very much about what he would say, and how he would say it. We would do well to take as much care in our own speech, texts, posts, and emails. We need to not only think about what we say, but how we say it, and how it will be received. “Benevolence” is the disposition to do good, according to Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary. Truth always does good especially when spoken in love (Ephesians 4:15).

Worship Center Repair
There are two walls in our worship center that need to have some minor repair and be repainted. Those repairs will begin on May 30 and will hopefully be completed by June 2.

Resolved
“Resolved, when I am most conscious of provocations to ill nature and anger, that I will strive most to feel and act good-naturedly; yea, at such times, to manifest good nature, though I think that in other respects it would be disadvantageous, and so as would be imprudent at other times.” (Jonathan Edwards, 1723).
            Think before we act or speak. Proverbs 16:23 says, “The heart of the wise instructs his mouth and adds persuasiveness to his lips.” My mouth needs lots of instruction, and my lips often need to be persuaded to say the right thing. I think this probably applies equally well to our fingers as we tweet, post, and send emails. Christian, when we feel provoked, we should respond in love.
