    U Matters

    Youth ministry attendance is up 251% over last year. Ryan and Brenna are quick to blame God and their lay volunteers for the growth. I praise God for this growth and thank our youth directors for a job well done!

    Today we bid farewell to Ryan. As Jesus would say, “Well done. Good and faithful servant.” As he leaves us for Alaska, please consider making a cash gift in the Ryan Box and join in the reception for Ryan following the 11:00AM service.

    Prof. Nicholas Perrin, Franklin S. Dyrness Professor of Biblical Studies and Dean of the Wheaton Graduate School, will be preaching at 9:30AM and 11AM. At 5PM he will present a Legge Lecture; “From Stories to Scripture: When Did the Gospels Become Authoritative?” I am thrilled to welcome an old friend who will open up the New Testament to us in a very special way.

    Gratefully,

    Pastor Greg
