  • Peace and to watch the Gilmore Girls reunion ... That’s all I want

    Last year we became quasi-temporary guardians of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target.
    I say quasi-temporary because the daughter has since moved out after staying with us for a year, but the cats are still with us.
    Once our daughter left, we decided to move the cats’ litter box from the guest bathroom to the now-empty spare bedroom.
    To us humans, that’s a simple change, but not to the cats.

    Great worship was experienced Sunday in both morning and evening.  Morning message was taken from Isaiah 6:1-11 on ‘Who will Go?’ and in the evening service we have started a series on ‘The Holy Spirit’ focusing this week on what the Holy Spirit does in our lives today.  If you want to hear the truth of God’s Word taught, come visit us at 11 and 6 each Sunday for worship and 9:45 for small group Bible study.

    It was a beautiful day as we worshiped the Lord together with great hymns and messages. Sunday morning Bro. Bill’s message was on “Checking the Score,” taken from Revelation 2:1-7 and Matthew 16:26.  We were so glad that Doris Ann and Tierra were able to worship with us.  We’ve missed them due to sickness and college.
    Our Sunday evening message was on “Attitudes of One that Loves Jesus.” Using many scriptures we were challenged to examine how and why we love Jesus.
