Sunday School/ VBS Visitation

A sure way to let others know we at Antioch care about them is to show them. Church visitation is one area that makes us often feel uncomfortable!  The thought of meeting up, going to someone's home and knocking on the door surely takes us out of our comfort zone!

But, as a church grows, our heart for others grows.  Though challenged, God's will and desires become more important to us and we follow Him through our fear and feelings of inadequacy. 

In a step of faith, we have set the date for a morning of visitation - June 30 we will meet at the church at 9:30 AM and reach out with Christ's love to invite families to our church.  We are placing an emphasis on families as we encourage them to come to Vacation Bible School and become active in Sunday School.

Will you take part?  Are you interested in church growth that goes beyond numbers and into allowing God to change lives, homes and families?  This step of faith may be the spark to bring about the things that only God can do!

Father's Day Poem

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail...

One father is more than a hundred Schoolemasters. ~George Herbert,Outlandish Proverbs, 1640

By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong. " -Charles Wadsworth

"My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it."
-- Clarence Budington Kelland, U.S. Writer

"A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society."
-- Billy Graham, Christian Evangelist

observation or a general truth.

1. The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.

2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any
sense at all.

many people a company can operate without.

19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you're probably dead

20. Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind...and the ones that mind don't matter

21. Life isn't tied with a bow...but it's still a gift

22. Politicians and diapers should be changed often...and for the same reason

Happy June

Can you believe it is JUNE?   Although June gives us a bit more leeway in our schedules, it can still be a busy time.  As we enjoy the freedom from school, the slower pace of days and the fun activities of summer, may we be mindful to not 'relax' in the work of the Lord. There are still ministries to fill, people to touch and the extra time in summer allows us to be more diligent in our service to Him.  It's not just 'a thing to do', but a chance to dedicate ourselves, step up our leadership and be in tune to where God is working...and join Him!

Here are some special June dates for Antioch, but keep in mind the weekly activities going on - Sunday night - kids and youth class, Tuesday - Men On a Journey - Wednesday - Ladies Prayer Meeting.

June 6 - Family Meal
June 10 - VBS Workday
June 14 - WMU
June 17 - Father's Day Breakfast
June 25-28 - Children's Camp
June 28 - S.T.A.R.S. (widows) meeting

Church softball is in full swing, keep an eye on the blog, the bulletin and the church Facebook page for weekly dates and times.
