Hello friends!

It is hard to believe that the month of May is already here.  This year is flying by and summer is right around the corner. My wife told me today that she has 26 more days of school! In case you didn’t guess my wife is a school teacher.  The countdown to summer break has already begun with my family, but who is counting! My family!  My son, Micah is already asking me if I will take him to the water slides at Myrtle Beach next month! Summer cannot get here fast enough for my family!

May I encourage you and your family as the summertime approaches to stay connected to church.  I know when the weather gets warmer we are easily tempted to skip church and do other summer things. I get it! But may I encourage you not to take a vacation from God this summer but stay connected to Him. Most pastors accept the fact that many people in their congregation are going to skip church in the summer and come back when school starts.  This fact is widely accepted in the Christian church but should it be? In all humility, I don’t think it should.  And that is why I want to encourage you to stay connected to God this summer and stay involved in church! God does not want us to take a vacation from Him this summer, but stay connected to Him.  I pray that you and I will have the right priorities this summer!

You and your family are invited to join us for Homecoming on May 6th at the 11:00 Service.  This is a special time in the life of Long’s Chapel Church and we would be blessed by your presence.  After the service, please make plans to join us for lunch, trust me you will be happy you did! I promise you won’t go home hungry.   

We always have excited things coming up at Long’s Chapel Church.  Please refer to the church website and bulletin for all pertinent information.

If you have no church home, we would love for you to join us on Sunday mornings at Long’s Chapel Christian Church for worship.  We are proud to offer two services to choose from: 8:30 a.m. (contemporary) or 11:00 a.m. (traditional). We look forward to worshipping our Lord with you!
