The Thanksgiving & Christmas holidays can be especially painful for those who have lost a loved one. GriefShare's "Surviving the Holidays" seminar helps participants prepare for the challenges of this time of year, and discover hope for the future. Deaconess Doris Kayser will lead this special workshop, held in Messiah's upstairs north classroom. There is a suggested donation of $5.00 to cover the cost of materials, payable on the day. Invite a friend!
On November 18, join us for worship at 8:30 or 11 am, along with Sunday School & Adult Bible Class at 9:45 am. A potluck dinner & our annual voters meeting will follow the 11 am service.
God's people endure deep hardship -- and God intervenes, commanding the archangel Michael to care for & protect Israel. (Daniel 12:1-3) Christ, the great High Priest, offers himself as a pure sacrifice for all sins; therefore, our gracious Father remembers our rebellion & lawless deeds no more. (Hebrews 10:11-25) What comfort as we are propelled toward the Day of Judgment - a day marked by persecution, war, famine & earthquakes! And yet, in the midst of these hardships, faith endures. (Mark 13:1-13)
Join us for this special worship service on Wednesday, November 21 at 7 pm!
Good land produces generous produce to nourish & preserve life. This goodness proceeds from the generosity, bounty & grace of God. (Deuteronomy 8:1-10) Therefore, in prayer & supplication, we offer thanksgiving to Him, content in all circumstances, grateful for sustenance needed for our body, soul & spirit. (Philippians 4:6-20) So also, when Jesus Christ heals disease through His Word, we rejoice in His all-powerful grace. (Luke 17:11-19)
On November 25, join us for worship at 8:30 or 11 am. There will be no Sunday School or Bible Class that morning.
The revelation of a new heaven & a new earth will be dramatic in the tumultuous last days.(Mark 13:24-37) But God's salvation will prevail, lasting forever, through the reign of the First & the Last -- Jesus Christ, our Lord. (Isaiah 51:4-6) He alone will judge with equity & truth, righteousness & grace. For this Last Day, we anticipate & watch, ceaseless in prayer, kept in God's love, waiting for the final revelation of God's mercy. (Jude 20-25) "Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!"
