Thursday Thoughts – Ascension Day - May 26th    

 

 

“When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them.

While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.  ~Luke 24:50-51

 

 Take a moment today and remember in prayer our Savior Jesus Christ.

 

 

Our prayers and sympathy for the McGlinchey family as they grieve the loss of Edna McGlinchey, loving mother of Rob McGlinchey, mother-in-law of Donna and grandmother to Meaghan and Shannon.

A Celebration of Life Service for Edna will be held here on Saturday, June 11th at 1:00 PM

 

From the desk of Scott:

Pray for the families in Uvalde, Texas that have lost their precious children and grandchildren due to this week’s senseless tragedy. May we as Christian pilgrims not become numb to the madness of these sinful acts.

 

John 16:33:  “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

 

Confirmation Sunday is coming June 5th. Please join us for this special and historic day in the life of our church.

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.
