"Come Into the Ark" 
Hebrews 11:7   
 
Have you ever been told, "Just have faith!"?  Have you ever wondered what that means, or struggled to live as a faithful Christian?  In the Eleventh Chapter of the New Testament Letter to the Hebrews,
the author provides a list from Old Testament history of various exemplars of faith and hopeful
belief.  Included in this list are people who, at various times, struggled to live as God intended. 
Yet, they have been held up as examples of faith for us.
 
This summer, we will be examining the stories of a number of these faith examples in hopes of allowing them to speak a word of faith to us today.  Join in learning and being shaped by these stories at worship service this Sunday at 8:30 am, or 10:50 am. Rev. Megan Turner will be preaching.
