Father’s Day is Sunday, June 19: Leverage this special day to resource dads for their ministries to their families. Or announce the start of a new ministry with dads in mind. One such ministry resource is Manhood Journey (see article in this section).
Summer Solstice is Monday, June 20: This is the first day of summer. (Interesting fact: on this day the sun does not set at the North Pole.) Plan outdoor serving activities in your community to celebrate the beginning of summer and take full advantage of the longest day of the year.
Forgiveness Day is Sunday, June 26: Perhaps every day should be a day to forgive the people in our lives, but this one is actually listed as such on some calendars of bizarre, unique, and special holidays. Employ this day on your preaching or small group schedule to teach on the vitality of forgiveness in the Christian life. Encourage people to forgive or seek forgiveness today. Set aside a time before taking the Lord’s Supper to focus on Matthew 6:14, 15 or James 5:15, 16.
