Feb 24, 2019 Thought For The Week

“You will never learn faith in comfortable surroundings. God gives us the promises in a quiet hour,…then He steps back and waits to see how much we believe; then He lets the tempter come, and the test seems to contradict all that He has spoken. It is then that faith wins its crown.”
-- “Streams in the Desert” .

This is an opportunity for all of us to hear reports on what God has been doing in this church, to share our thoughts or questions on God’s work here, and to make decisions on important matters of “family” business. Everyone is welcome.

Also Note: Today is our annual VALENTINE’S PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE. This is a time designed to give all of us a chance to express our love to God, or to Jesus for our salvation, or to those in our church family whom God has used to help us grow closer to Jesus. You may also choose to share some report of how a loving God has worked in your life recently. Can you think of something God might want you to share this morning? It could be most encouraging.
