Monday Minute with Pastor Paul Kollek

Passionate People of Hope!
Today is veterans day, we give thanks for all those who serve and have served our nation.  Let us pray for safety and protection to our heavenly Father for all those who are currently serving and for their families.
Many restaurants are providing a complimentary meal today for our veterans.  I will be taking advantage of Applebee’s free entree today in Fenton. So if any of my fellow veterans would like to join me for lunch today please give me a call or send me a text. I’m flexible on the time.  
The Women’s Guild’s basket sign fundraiser was fun and a huge success. $3,170 was raised.  If you missed out on a basket but would like to donate toward the sign fund, envelopes are available in the Narthex. This sign will allow us to communicate with the entire community quickly and easily pointing them to Hope and more importantly to Jesus!  
Yesterday’s sermon focused on the reading from Exodus 3:1-15.  God’s name, “I AM WHO I AM” what His name tells us about Himself, and what it means for us as His dear children, sons, and daughters of the resurrection.  Unfortunately, I was unable to upload the sermon this morning the file seems to be corrupted.  

Linden Holiday Happenings is just around the corner on December 6th!  We need carollers, it would be a wonderful witness to the community if we had a large group singing of our Saviors birth! So even if you don’t think you are a wonderful singer, we can still make a joyful noise together!  
Christmas is coming and we are adopting My Brothers Keeper in Flint this year.  Ellie Sevick is leading up the effort to provide much-needed items for them. They are in need of almost everything all the time, and Ellie is making a weekly trip on Thursdays to deliver donations.  So if you have a donation you may drop it off in the counters room temporarily until we find a more suitable location.  However, for the Christmas celebration at MBK, we are specifically collecting new gifts: toys, warm clothing, hats, boots, socks, gloves, nuts, jerky, candy, personal hygiene items, coats, blankets, or whatever you would like to give.  Don’t know? You may donate some cash and Ellie will pick up coats or other items for you. If you have any questions please call her.
May the Lord grow us in our love for Him and for one another, may we become more and more a People Passionate about Christ in all that we say and do!
