UPCOMING EVENTS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
  • SPRING IS HERE!  As we celebrate this long-awaited spring season, let’s remember to celebrate God’s beautiful creation which includes both nature and His crowning joy—you and me!  Take a moment to thank God today for the amazing gift of our beautiful world as everything awakens from its winter slumber. As you watch the buds begin to emerge and hear the birds singing, we pray that your own soul will be refreshed by the warmth of God’s love.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.
Psalm 1:3 (NLT)

PEOPLE TO PEOPLE
People to People is a cooperative ministry that provides clothing, bedding and small kitchen items to families in our community.
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
— Ephesians 6:10-11
 
Thoughts on Today’s Verse….
Many of the struggles in our lives are not mere accidents! Many of them are not put there by God. Our challenges often come from the hand of our enemy, Satan. He always prowls about looking for the best scheme to knock us out of our commitment to and relationship with the Lord. Placing ourselves firmly in the hands of the Lord and using his tools of warfare will help us defeat our enemy who has already been humiliated by Jesus and the cross.
 
My Prayer… Strengthen me, O God, that I may stand against my foe and triumph by the power of your Spirit so that I may bring honor and glory to my conquering Savior who will return one day and take me home in victory. In the name of the victorious Rider on the White Horse I pray. Amen.
