Plan For It

Plan For It

Part of the excitement sometimes is the getting ready.

Last Sunday afternoon I got ready. I had my jersey. My dog had her jersey. I had my favorite snacks. (My dog had her favorite snacks too – but she gets them every afternoon.) I had my chair, my remote, my cup holder, and my fleece just in case. I was settling down for a few hours of football. The first game of the season!

Part of the excitement sometimes is the getting ready.

Fall is often filled with firsts…

  • first day of school
  • first game
  • first rehearsal
  • first Sunday School class
  • first day back

What do you need to get ready for this Sunday’s Fall Kick-Off at Faith?

Whether you’re able to join us in person or need to stay online, make your plans to get ready to join us!

This is a new year and maybe it’s an opportunity to start a new practice as part of your Sunday routine…part of the excitement sometimes is the getting ready.

Maybe this year you’ll decide your Sunday morning routine will include brunch before or after worship. Maybe it’ll be at a different place each week or each month. Make a plan for asking someone to join you!

Maybe this year you’ll decide to bike to church, walk to church, carpool to church. Make a plan to pump up your tires, plan your route, check with your neighbor.

Maybe this year you’ll decide that instead of listening to the choir from the pews, you’ll be part of it even if you don’t think your voice is anything special. Make a plan to meet up with someone at rehearsal so you won’t chicken out at the last minute. (Trust me – I know from experience that this helps!)

Maybe this year you’ll decide you’ll be a bit more casual in what you wear to church. Or you’ve been in yoga pants so much lately that you want to step it up. Either way – make a plan that might even include a fun church mask.

Maybe this year you’ll decide you like having a coffee with you in worship, so despite what your parents scolded you about, you’re going to bring it along! Be brave! Go ahead! Plan ahead to bring your favorite mug!

Maybe this year you’ll decide to watch the livestream broadcast from YouTube to your large screen TV instead of your laptop. Make a plan to download the YouTube app on your smart TV or connect to your laptop with an HDMI cord.

Maybe this year you’ll decide you want to bring your grandchildren to Sunday School. Make a plan to talk to their parents and think about how you can make it a special Sunday routine for all of you.

Part of the excitement sometimes is the getting ready. Are you ready for some worship?

In Christ,
