Good land produces generous fruits 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; 1 Timothy 2:1-4) So also when God eradicates disease through His Word, we rejoice in His omnipotent grace & power. (Luke 17:11-19)
Services at 8:30 & 11 am. There will be no Sunday School or Bible classes on November 26.
The Lord draws decisive boundaries between the faithful & the faithless, the humble & the arrogant, the brokenhearted & the proud. (Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24) The gavel of divine justice declares both punishment & life, casts the guilty into hell & opens the gates of heaven. (Matthew 25:31-46) Christ Himself balances this paradox, delivering the kingdom of God through His Word & actions -- suffering, death & resurrection. Now we eagerly wait for His return in glory & justice. (1 Corinthians 15:20-28)
Services at 8:30 & 11 am; Sunday School & Bible classes at 9:45 am. A potluck dinner & our annual Voters meeting will follow the 11 am service.
Distress, anguish, ruin, devastation, darkness & gloom converge on God's day of wrath. (Zephaniah 1:7-16) But those who live in the light of Christ are armored with faith, love & hope. (1 Thessalonian 5:1-11) We are not destined for wrath, but for salvation, & are called to invest ourselves with others -- bold encouragers, wise stewards, generous givers, faithful servants & merciful companions -- all for the sake of Jesus, who died for us that we may awake to new & abundant life. (Matthew 25:14-30)
