“He calms the storm…”

Dear friends,

The weather forecast is not looking good for tomorrow morning. Please, do not drive to church if you do not feel safe on the road. Your safety should be your priority.

I will be at church tomorrow at 8:55 am and 11:25 am for those who feel safe driving and choose to come. We may have some visitors from the highways who are not able to drive to their destination and might be stuck in Ooltewah because of the icy roads. I want them to have a place of worship.

Our 3-rd Sabbath potluck is cancelled. Enjoy your Sabbath lunch with your family or friends.

Pray for our Pathfinders. They are on the road to Cohutta Springs for the TeenCamp.

Pray for our “prayer warriors”. They are heading to Cohutta Springs for the Prayer Conference that takes place this weekend.

Please, remember about our local church budget. Our ministries and our school are fully dependent upon our regular weekly support. If you are traveling or not  able to attend you can make your weekly donation online. If you have not yet tried it in the past, try it tonight. Here is the link:  https://www.ooltewahchurch.org and choose the ONLINE GIVING tab.  It is easy and convenient. Let the Lord bless your faithful and generous support of our church ministries and programs.

Thank you, Ooltewah Health Ministries team for the excellent Health Fair last Sunday. It was a cold day, but you came and represented our church in the most wonderful way. It was good to see visitors from the community as well as from our church family. I was happy to learn that my sugar level is 96! Which is good. I had several extra cookies that afternoon 🙂

Delbert Fisher is out of the hospital. He is currently at LifeCare facility in Cleveland. He is doing better and getting stronger. Thank you for your prayers for Delbert.

Let the Lord calm the storms in us and around us. Trust His mighty power the way the Psalmist trusted:

Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brings them out of their distresses.
He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.
Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people,
And praise Him in the company of the elders. (Psalm 107:28-32)

Wishing you a safe and happy Sabbath day.

Your friend and pastor Peter
