SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT – If Jesus isn’t strong enough to motivate you to live biblically, you don’t know Him at all. – Paul Washer

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door, and deny Him in their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable. – Brennan Manning

In so many ways I am the opposite of Jesus’ lifestyle. This keeps me up at night. I can’t have authentic communion with Him while mired in the trappings He begged me to avoid. – Jen Hatmaker

DEAR PATOKA UMC: This school year, thanks to your generous donation, we helped 227 North Gibson area students receive the supplies necessary to begin a successful school year [thru the 1st Annual Backpack Bash sponsored by the City of Princeton’s Parks Board].

DEAR CHURCH FAMILY: We have all the prayer sponsors needed for this school year! We would like to thank all the members of our congregation for coming forward for this great ministry in our church. Darla & Lisa
