Praising Father...
... Our Office Service Team had the honor of experiencing the joy in two 1st Grader's lives as they invited Christ into their hearts.  After hearing their teachers talk about the love of Christ and salvation in Bible class, they decided just before recess that they wanted to have Him in their hearts forever.  Today we are praising Father for the joy of His love as seen through children's eyes!
Moms in Prayer Meeting Changes
Mark your calendars!
"Fret not yourselves because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.  Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.  Delight yourself in the Lord; and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act."  Psalm 37:1-5 (ESV)
