Reaching Out from
Grand Lake Community Chapel

Greetings in Christ!
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! Let us rejoice in comfortable temperatures (although a bit cool for some), and let us be glad that the forecast has no indication of severe weather! This looks to be a wonderful few days to get out and enjoy Up North summertime!!
We have so much to be thankful for, in spite of bad economic news, unrest in major cities, and unsettledness overseas; there are days when we have to work extra hard to find those things to be thankful for, but trust us, they’re always there! The song of a bird, seeing a deer grazing, a note from a dear friend or family member whom we haven’t heard from in a while, the gentle touch of our dearest love all are worthy of our thanks and praise. Then there are those random acts of kindness that happen every day, that we don’t always record in the busyness of the day; for example, we were in a grocery store a couple of days ago, wrote a check for our purchases, and then were informed that the check reader wouldn’t accept our check – a couple in line behind us, whom we had never met before, offered to put our order on their debit card if we’d write them a check! Their kindness made our day brighter than we could have imagined, and filled us with resolve to take advantage of every opportunity that comes our way to be kind to another. What an amazing blessing, and what a powerful reminder of the goodness that is in each person we encounter! God is good, all the time; and all the time, God is good! And so are his children…

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10
The Grand Lake Community Chapel VBS of 2022 is in the books and was a huge success! We thank our dedicated organizers, leaders, teen leaders, staff, supporters, and families who made this time with God and fellowship with one another possible. God’s greatness will continue to be celebrated as the seeds that were planted grow!
Wishing you joy and peace in your day!
Remember, God’s got this.
