SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
(This parable) warns us that there are certain things which cannot be borrowed. The foolish virgins found it impossible to borrow oil, when they discovered they needed it. A man cannot borrow a relationship with God; he must possess it. A man cannot borrow a character; he must be clothed with it. We cannot always be living on the spiritual capital which others have amassed. There are certain things which we must win or possess for ourselves, for we cannot borrow them from others. (William Barclay, Daily Study Bible “Matthew”)

Since Souper Bowl of Caring was founded in 1990, over 125 million in cash and food items has been raised for hunger and poverty relief causes across the country. We are so appreciative of all our participants, donors and friends who have helped us out along the way. Without your help, we would not be celebrating this incredible milestone.

NEW BIBLE STUDY!!! We hope you’ll choose to join us as we begin a new 6-week Bible Study – “Jesus: Experiencing His Touch” [by Kay Arthur and David Arthur] on Tuesday, June 14th at 7:00pm in the Family Life Center Wesley Room. The first 6 chapters of Mark’s gospel overflow with stories of people drawing near to Jesus, longing to experience firsthand the touch of the Savior. Over and over, Jesus responded with compassion, interacting on a personal level with individuals who had been cast aside by society, their circumstances deemed beyond hope. As we delve into their stories in this powerful study we’ll discover the difference it makes when we engage with Jesus personally and experience His touch in our lives. Study guides/lessons will be made available to you, with no homework necessary. Just come join us. We have extra Bibles, plenty of room, and lively fellowship and conversation each week!
