June 14 is Campaign Sunday – Our Love Lifts Us Up Campaign for Access is moving into high gear. After months of hard work behind the scenes our Campaign Committee invites you to Campaign Sunday on June 14 at 9:00 a.m. On that Sunday we will introduce you to the plan for the entire campaign, commission the leaders of the campaign, and report on the progress of the campaign so far. We will even sing a song I wrote especially for our campaign, entitled “Come On In”. Please plan to be present for this important Sunday in the life of our church.
Since our campaign theme is “Love Lifts Us Up”, Holly Cerullo did some research for us on the word love. I leave you with her thoughts below.
"Love" in many forms appears in the Bible over 200 times
79 - times as a noun
98 - times as a verb
23 - times as the word "charity" which comes from the Greek word for "love"
"Love" appears many times in our hymnal and song books
32 - the number of hymns in the United Methodist Hymnal with the word "love" in the title or first line.
16 - the number of songs in the Faith We Sing and Worship and Song books with the word "love" in the title or first line.
