Scripture: Psalm 63:1-8 NRSV
Sermon: Take Time for God

Making sure that we spend time with God every day is vital to our Christian growth. We must take time to be in His Word, follow His ways and His will, and participate in His work.
How do you like to spend your time? Have you ever done something and thought, "That was a waste of time?" It seems like I've heard most my life people saying not to waste time or to spend your time wisely. I think we can agree that we make time for the things we love the most, but as Christians do we make sure God is at the top of that list? Are you making sure you are spending quality and quantity time with the Lord every day? We can do this through our prayer time, Bible time, worship time, and service time. King David gives us some great advice about this in Psalm 63:1-8 and I will be preaching from that text for today's sermon. I hope you will spend some time with this scripture this week and let David's words inspire you in your time with God.
 
Speaking of time - I really hope and pray we get to spend time together today at 5pm for our outdoor worship service. If it is not raining, we will meet in the back parking lot for a time of music, praise and prayers, and a timely message.
LOOK FOR A MESSAGE ON MY FACEBOOK PAGE, THE CHURCH FACEBOOK PAGE OR CHURCH WEBSITE AT 3PM TODAY FOR AN ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THIS EVENT.

And please join me in praying that it does not rain. If it does we will reschedule and try again.

And remember, God loves you and so do I.
