July 28, 2017: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: WEAKNESS
As summer marches on, many are still planning family vacations, others are gearing up to start a new school year, and some are preparing for something new in their lives, like a wedding, retirement or moving to a new residence. Our church family is diverse in age and stage of life, as well as in interests, yet we can all affirm that through it all God is with us!
July Revival is in full swing – we have had wonderful, special music, prayer time together, and many guests! I hope you are planning to be with us for part five of our sermon series, Scandals of Scripture. We will read from Genesis 29:1-30. Rev. Amy Venable will be our preacher, helping us consider the dynamics in this story of Jacob, Leah, Rachel and Laban, as we look for help with our weaknesses in her sermon, “Out-Foxing the Fox.”
Help us finish July with great vigor. Plan to be here Sunday! Pray between now and then for Rev. Venable and for God’s spirit to move among us! Consider inviting a friend to worship!

Three more opportunities to see Broadway at Boston Avenue’s The Addams Family Musical
Loving families come in all shapes and sizes...who’s to say what’s normal?
Join the cast of Broadway at Boston Avenue this Thursday and Friday night as well as Sunday afternoon for The Addams Family Musical. Audience members of all ages will enjoy experiencing the journey of this familiar, lovable family through laughter, tears, and toe-tapping music.
In the kooky world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus of the musical: the Addams kids are growing up.
The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years, and Gomez and Morticia, patriarch and matriarch, played by Boston Avenue’s Kent Harris and Veronica Smith, would be happy to continue that way. Their dark, beloved daughter Wednesday, played by Becca Worthington, however, is now an eighteen-year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own.
She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, played by Will Duncan, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable family — the most un-Addams sounding person! To make matters worse, Wednesday has invited the Beinekes, played by Kelly Borycki, Chuck Tegeler and Lee Egdorf, to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face what they’ve avoided for decades: change.
An intergenerational cast ranging in age from 9 to 63, including Trevor Waechter as Fester Addams, Christopher Flippo as Pugsley Addams, and Allison Hardin as Grandma, are all in on the fun, too. Rounding out the cast are the Ancestors, played by Belle Clemons, Rebecca Dennison, Sierra Eveland, Carrie Clark, Caroline Holmes, Grant Magee, Rebecca Magee, Kate Parker, and Rob Reck, who bring the show to life with music.
Showtimes are July 27 and 28 at 7:00 p.m. and July 30 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10, reserved seating. To purchase, visit the table in Bishops’ Hall, call the box office at 918-699-0138, or email email@example.com.
