What to read if...

If you have the blues, read Psalm 27.
If your pockets are empty, read Psalm 37.
If people seem unkind, read John 15.
If you are discouraged about your work, read Psalm 76.
If you are in a bad mood, read Hebrews 12.
If you are losing confidence in people, read Corinthians 13.
If you can’t have your own way in everything, keep silent and read James 3.

The Bible is very practical, and is comforting. Many Bibles have a page listing topics, and where to find a chapter about it. God knows you inside and out, and where you are at in life. Always be aware that He will never leave you, and is an ever-present help in your time of need. He speaks through His Word - the Bible!

Mt. Pleasant Bible Church 
1530 Emerson Rd, Goodells, MI 48027
Living Faith Lutheran Church in Marine City will hold
its Vacation Bible School July 19-21 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. for children ages 5 through 12. The church is located in the old Ward-Cottrell School at 310 South Parker Street.

“In these confusing and troubled times, we want to provide impressionable young people with a spiritual foundation on which they can rely,” said Living Faith Pastor Paul Yanke. “We will teach them that becoming a child of God doesn’t mean accumulating riches or conforming to the ways of the world but accepting God’s love, which will be with them always.”
Themed “Treasured VBS: Discovering you’re priceless to God,” children attending will participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, and collect Bible Memory Buddies, which will remind them of God’s love and they will be able to take home. They’ll also learn to look for evidence of God all around them through “God Sightings.” Each evening will conclude with a Closing Quest that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.

Finally, children, who will receive a free T-shirt to wear to VBS, will be part of a mission project to provide nets to protect from mosquito kids while they sleep. The nets will be distributed to countries that lack adequate controls and where mosquitoes may carry malaria. To register for VBS, visit www.LivingFaithLC.org; for more information, call 810-765-8440.
