From the book of Live and Learn and Pass It On

I’ve learned that goldfish don’t like Jello – age 5

I’ve learned that you can love someone and still not like them very much – age 26

I’ve learned it is taking me a long time to become the person I want to be – age 51

I’ve learned that you can’t tell how far a frog will jump just by looking at him – age 79.

I’ve learned I still have a lot to learn – age 92

From the desk of Rev. Scott

Lord God Almighty, shaper and ruler of all creatures, we pray for your great mercy, that you guide us towards you, for we cannot find our way.

 

And guide us to your will, to the need of our soul, for we cannot do it ourselves. And make our mind steadfast in your will and aware of our soul’s need.

 

Luke 10:21 

21  At that very time He rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for doing so was well pleasing in Your sight.

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.
