Bible Study - Angels: Standing Guard

Angels…what is your first impression? Is it Michael the Archangel, the warrior? Is it your “guardian angel” who stands over your life and protects you in a myriad of ways? Is it the fourteen angels who watch over you as you sleep? What does the Bible tell us about Angels?

Consider joining an eight-week study group exploring this topic. The Bible discussion of Angels: Standing Guard started on April 20th. We are continuing the study on Wednesdays, at 1:30 PM in the church library. All are welcome. It is understood that not everyone will be able to attend all the eight-week study sessions. Come as you are able and join in the fun. Look for a signup sheet in the church foyer.

Sisters in Faith and Quilting

Our quilting group will meet on Tuesday, May 10 in the Quilting Room at the east end of the building. On this day we will meet at 1p.m. and use this time to organize, sort and generally clean up our room. We are not expecting this to take much more than an hour.  Please consider joining us in our effort to close up for the summer.

Note: Please remember that there is always a display of our comfort quilts in the church library. They are available to you whenever the church is open. These quilts are meant for you to give to anyone that you know of that could use a reminder that they are prayed for, thought of and never alone in their troubles.

God provides the sun, water, and soil. You provide the seeds and the will to plant and till the soil. Together a bountiful harvest is produced.

Volunteers Needed to Operate Our Video Camera

Volunteers are needed to operate our video camera for livestreaming our worship service online. We are in need of people willing to learn how to use it.  We chose an easy to operate camera, and will give you a lesson on how to operate it. We would like to have a rotating schedule like we do for the power point operators, so we can share the responsibility. If you would be willing to help with this important ministry, please let Pastor Debbie know.

Church Library News

Have you read the book of Hosea in the Bible? God asks Hosea, the prophet, to marry Gomer who would be adulterous and unfaithful to him. Hosea obeys and as a result he suffers much heartache. This was God’s way of showing Israel how they were being unfaithful to God by seeking other “loves”: power, pleasure, money. God still pursued them and wanted them to turn to Him and love Him.

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, 1997, is a modern-day example of the book of Hosea. (It was recently released as a live-stream movie.) Based in California during the 1850 gold rush, Michael Hosea is asked by God to marry Angel, a popular call girl at the local brothel. Read this Christian Fiction novel to see how Michael pursues her and continues to love her despite her continued infidelity. (Some details in this book may not be appropriate for readers under age 13.)  Reading this novel may change the way you think about God’s unchanging and undying love for us.

You will find this book and many more in the church library. Keep reading!
