SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT – A Christian reveals true humility by showing the gentleness of Christ, by being always ready to help others, by speaking kind words and performing unselfish acts, which elevate and ennoble the most sacred message that has come to our world. – Ellen G. White

FREE FARMERS MARKET – TENTATIVELY PLANNED FOR JULY 29TH !!! This is for any & all excess produce from our farmers and gardeners, to distribute to the community. We ask that you have produce to the church by 7:00am; however, we will receive produce on thru the day. If anyone needs help “picking” on Friday, contact Pastor Jeff Pinney or Kathy Hudson. We do not propose that you “can” less or “eat” less of your garden harvest, but often, gardeners have excess which is often a chore to get to those that need it. Our prayer is that the Lord provides a bumper crop! And please spread the word to your neighbors and friends who plant gardens, since we hope to get as much produce as possible. We will “ration” what we give to each family unit to only what they might eat in a week, or say 1 dozen ears of sweet corn, 6 tomatoes, etc. Our intention is to really get the word out on this, as far reaching as possible, so the more produce the more people we can touch! The farmers market is for PUMC church folks too!!

This is a Christian country. Why, so is hell. In as much as “Strait is the way and narrow is the gate, and few-few-are they that enter in thereat” has had the natural effect of making hell the only really prominent Christian community in any of the worlds; but we don’t brag of this and certainly it is not proper to brag and boast that America is a Christian country when we all know that certainly five-sixths of our population could not enter in at the narrow gate. – Mark Twain in Eruption
In baptism, new Christians become part of a body of fellow believers who are called to spiritually encourage one another and hold one another responsible for consistent Christian living. – Tony Campolo
