Do you ever go to a baseball game and they run into extra innings? Or you go to a music concert that plays extra songs….and runs overtime? Do you stay to the end? Most people do!
Here at MUMC, at times our Church service may “run over”. I say: “Praise the Lord”! Often it is because of very special “God work” like: Baptisms, Church Membership growing, reports on Conference, UMW, Choir, Blood Drives, etc, etc…..and very importantly, childrens specialness—Sunday School presentations, MYF, VBS, PreSchool, mini-children’s time, etc, etc….All of these events are part of God’s work and may require overtime.
God gave us 7 days a week. Can’t we at least give him a full hour on Sunday? And at times, even overtime? We should do no less.
Perhaps we can “reserve extra time on Sundays for God…and our Church Family, too.
