Dear Church,

Wow! I can’t believe that it is almost October. The weather is beginning to cool off (at least in the mornings) and I smell the aroma of pumpkin spice every time I go into a coffee shop. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite times of the year. One thing in particular I love about fall in Augusta is that it is the perfect time to play golf, which is what I want to highlight in my article this week. I don’t know if you are aware, but our Golf Tournament will be held on October 11th. We still have openings for the tournament so if you are a golfer, I hope you will sign up to play. Contact George Berry for more information at It is going to be an amazing day and the gift bags George has put together are really awesome!

Before I get into the calendar, I want to encourage you to be in worship on Sunday morning as we continue our series, The Masterclass of Jesus. We are now more than halfway through the series and I hope that you have found each week interesting, but more importantly, I hope it has been helpful in teaching you how to live a life that is more in tune with the Kingdom of God that Jesus talks about in the Sermon on the Mount. If you have missed anything so far, visit our website or download our podcast to catch up.

Make sure to check out the dates listed below. I can’t wait to see you on Sunday.
