Pastor Char encourages the men to bring a favorite tie or hat of their father's. Here are some of the men with their ties and hats from last year.
Special father’s Day Service on June 17th, during morning worship.
The morning message will be on God’s great love for his children and the love of Father’s in our homes. There will be special music by the church choir and soloists Ray Havlicak and Tyler Vance will play, Silver Haired daddy of Mine.
Softly and tenderly, Jesus calls,
“Come, home, Come home, ye who are weary, Come home.”
Into each of our hearts God has placed a homing instinct, But, who of us in our walk with God are so constant that we have not at some time or another, wandered away from God’s presence and love. So there exists a call from God that we are invited to come back home, come back into the arms of the God who loves and forgives us.
This month is Father’s Day and I pray that each one of us will return home and tell our mothers and fathers how important they are to us. How much we appreciate their love, and all the time and dedication that they put into raising us.
Too, many times in families something happens and a child is drawn away from their home and the years pass and relationships suffer and become broken, and before we realize it we have not been back home in years. Then a longing over takes us and we are drawn with a yearning so deep and powerful that we know that we must return home and make things right.
Home, the powerful tug to return again to the place of our childhood, to the time when we lived in the security of our parents home to once again be a kid, protected by our parents love and caring.
Yes, we can go home again. This Father’s Day let us make every effort to once again go home put our arms around our mother and father and tell them those simple words they long to hear,
I love you...
Then we are also called to return to the God who loves us, to once again place our lives into God’s care for in God’s eyes each one of us is a beloved child.
God continues to call to us today, Come Home, Come Home my child
