    The Rev. Wotier’s message, “When Your Weak Faith Needs Strengthening?” was taken from John 6:16-21. When our faith needs strengthening, God puts us in places we don’t want to be and he gives us commands we don’t understand. He does this to help us see things we can’t see about Him. When times are tough, when you think you are going down, He will always be there, when you need Him.
    We welcome Colton Stedam by Profession of Faith.
    The Deacon of the Month is Danny Jacobs.
