August is Our Summer Praise Emphasis... The Dills, a Southern Gospel Quartet from Jackson Tennessee, will be our concert guests on Sunday evening, August 10, 6:30PM. (A love offering will be received during the services.) Then, on August 24, 6:30PM, we will enjoy the combined Worship Arts Choirs of Springfield Southern and Fountain of Life United Methodist of Buffalo. (A home-made ice-cream fellowship will follow.) The month- long worship arts emphasis will conclude with a service of “Instrumental Praise” led by our own SSBC Musicians on August 31st will want to participate in each and every service this month and be “lifted up” in worship through music.

Faith in Motion: Building for the Future. Bob Spencer, Campaign Director, has given the following summary for the Capital Stewardship Campaign through July 2014... “We have received 67 commitment cards with a total commitment of $534,240. We have had 63 of those committed give and 3 individuals not returning a commitment card give to the building fund. One person that returned a commitment card without expressing an amount has given to the building fund. It looks like 12 commitments have been fulfilled. Total given as a result of the campaign is $130,223.We are about a week away from reaching the 25% level ($130,560) of our commitments.” Thank you, church family for your generous giving toward our relocation initiatives!

I will be continuing a message series from the Bible book of Job during the month of August. The series title is Lessons from Job: When Adversity Strikes. The four-part series centers on ... “The Test” (Job 1-2), “The Complaint” (Job 23), “The Talk” (Job 38:1-42:6), and “The End” (Job 42:7- 17). Join us each Lord’s Day as we grow in our understanding of pain, suffering and loss from the life of Job.
