Thursday Thoughts –September 22nd    

 

 

From: Rev. W. Scott Wasdin

 

“If you travel north or south, you’ll eventually reach the North or South Pole and change directions, but east and west have no turning points. Neither does God.”

 

Rally Day will be this Sunday 9/25/22. Sunday School teachers and students will be recognized in the worship service. There will be a fellowship breakfast and coffee immediately following the worship hour. 

 

Please be in prayer for the ways that you could volunteer your time and talents at our church.

 

 

 

Acts 20:35

35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said:  ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

God Cares. Yesterday today and tomorrow

 

 

All over the world folks are doing what they can to support and give comfort in this time of uncertainty.

Everything has changed but God is our constant. 

God will comfort the grieving and give strength to those who are in need

There is hope found through prayer and our continued faith that God will be there for all of us.

 

 

Our church family is amazing when called upon to help. 

Some ideas.....
Fill the plastic container outside the parking lot door with food for the food pantry

Drop off cards in the office mail box to be mailed to area nursing homes or our shut-ins.

Put a sign with a word or picture of encouragement in a window or in your yard

Every day at 3PM let's all take a moment to connect spiritually with prayer.

A moment in time each day to pray for those who need God’s comfort and care.

 

Your deacons are available via email or phone. We are committed to help however we can.

The Lord hears when I call to him. There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!”

Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O Lord

In peace I will both lie down and sleep.

For thou alone. O  Lord, makest me dwell in safety.
