Hi Good News family!
Here’s a lot things you should know this week…
> GNBC YOUTH BAND ‘TRY OUTS’ – JULY 21st
Who: for all musical kids 6th-12th grade. Led by Meegan Delvental; text her directly with questions, 508.954.5693.
What: This is an open time for young musicians to come and learn about Good News Youth Band, show their ability on their instrument, and find out if Youth Band is a good fit for them. We’re looking primarily for singers, drummers, bassists, guitarists, and pianists. Other instruments are also invited, we can see what your abilities are and where to include you.
When: July 21st, 12:30-2pm (we’ll provide pizza for lunch for Band try-out students)
Where: Good News gym
Why: To grow our Youth team, which leads the worship team for Celebration and Growth service about once every 6 weeks. And to encourage young people who have talents to refine and use those talents for God’s glory.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK …
“Have you realized that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself? The main art in the matter of spiritual living is to know how to handle yourself. You have to take yourself in hand, you have to address yourself, preach to yourself, question yourself. You must say to your soul: ‘Why art thou cast down’—what business have you to be disquieted? You must turn on yourself, upbraid yourself, condemn yourself, exhort yourself, and say to yourself: ‘Hope thou in God.’” – Eric Geiger

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Only by grace,
