Bulletin 5-28-17

When was the last time you asked someone to join you in church? It is our call to bring others to know Jesus more, to center on Christ once a week, it is the responsibility of ALL as disciples of Jesus – “Therefore go and make disciples.”

Biblically, waiting is not just something we have to do until we get what we want. Waiting is part of the process of becoming what God wants us to be. (John Ortberg)

What then are we to do about our problems? We must learn to live with them until such time as God delivers us from them…we must pray for grace to endure them without murmuring. Problems patiently endured will work for our spiritual perfecting. They harm us only when we resist them or endure them unwillingly.- A.W. Tozer
