I cannot cure cancer, but a good physician can. I cannot solve the problem of sin in this world, but Christ can. Let Christ into your hearts. Hatred will be dissolved by the power of His grace. Pride will give way to mercy. Love will take the place of selfishness. All other efforts will fail. Only Christ can bring victory.
Last Sabbath about fifty church members gathered on the church lawn for the 9 AM worship service. The weather was absolutely perfect. The spirit of those who came to worship was wonderful. A special Thank You to Pastor Matthew for his hard work on providing the sound system. The highway noise was not bothering anyone. Here are a few photos taken from Sarah Penagos’ Instagram 🙂
On Monday morning about twelve volunteers got up early and came to church to prepare sack lunches for the homeless. With that number of hands the work was done in about 45 minutes. Thank you, Lucas, for your dedication to this ministry. Christ called us to feed the hungry. I am glad that our church can be a part of this service to the community. Here are some photos from that day.
Tiny Timberwolves Adventurers: while our year ended earlier then planned, we had an outstanding year none the less. With 28 kids, a dedicated staff and supportive parents, we made the best of our shortened time together. We learned that Jesus is Our Forever Friend during Investiture and through fun activities including a chilly camp-out, fall fun festivities, Christmas crafts and regular class time. Check out the pictures on the Fellowship Hall bulletin board. Thanks to ALL who supported our club through participation and prayer. – Laura Standish
Men’s Sabbath School class met “under the tree” last Sabbath. It it always inspiring to see our men study God’s Word. It is my understanding that they will meet outside again this Sabbath.
SABBATH SCHOOL. Several online Sabbath school options are available tomorrow. Please, contact your Sabbath school class leader to find out how you can join their study. Our plan is to open the church and the school buildings for the in-person Sabbath school classes as soon as possible. I’ll keep you posted. There will be no YouTube Sabbath school study from church tomorrow.
Worship Service tomorrow, June 6. Finally we’ll have our first in-person worship service tomorrow. The service will start at 9 AM in the Fellowship Hall. Don’t be surprised to see how the chairs are spaced out. We have to follow the CDC guidelines. As you enter the lobby you’ll need to follow the instructions of our friendly deacons. You are not required to wear a mask. There will be no printed bulletin, but you can print one at home. The online bulletin is available here.
