As you undoubtedly are aware, we at EFC are in the middle of the sermon series “Mountains and Valleys.” Last week, Pastor Eric preached on “Living Dangerously in the Valley of Dry Bones.”
Yesterday, Jim Cargile very carefully walked us through the Valley of the Shadow of Death cleverly demonstrating that the walk is, in fact, the point of it all. If you missed it, check out the podcast when the podcast link below becomes active.
It’s an exciting time around EFC! The new children’s wing and youth room are taking shape. If you haven’t seen the progress, pop in some time and see what’s going on.

On the Radar
The Children’s School of Worship is fast approaching. It will be August 8-11. You can register your children next week. Check with Pastor Lolo for additional details.
Rock the Desert is also just around the corner. If you or your youth are interested, you can contact the other Pastor Loran for more information. You must register by July 28. The cost is $30 which includes your ticket, food and transportation. If you just want the ticket, it’s $20.
Growing Together is ongoing and you can continue to help by volunteering to help with construction, painting, and, of course, contributing financially.
Jim mentioned his late-night fascination with Blue Letter Bible during his sermon. Check it out. It’ll definitely be worth your time. iPhone users can download the Blue Letter Bible App for free. I did Sunday night. Speaking of Bible apps, there are plenty of great Bible and Bible study apps for iPhone, Blackberry, and many other smartphones. Here are a few of my favorites (and they’re all free):
Interested in other online Bible resources? The Resources page on my own blog has several to keep you occupied.
Next Sunday, July 25, we will continue our exploration of valleys in the Bible with the other Pastor Loran.
I want to thank Pastor Eric for once again allowing me to fill in and write this Monday Morning Review. I always appreciate the opportunity to do so.
