LADIES BIBLE STUDY - The ladies are having a Bible Study every other Tuesday. The next meeting is at 11:00 a.m., this Tuesday, Oct 31st. All ladies are invited to come.
PICTORIAL DIRECTORY- We need pictures of every member of the church for the new pictorial directory. Sign up to have your pictures taken at no cost -you do not have to buy anything! See Ric Kolseth for more details.
HELP NEEDED - Our ladies are providing a meal for “A Safe Home for Everyone” once a month. If you would be interested in helping out the next one will be Nov 14 (2nd Tuesday of each month). Please see Wendy Lung or Katrina Kolseth for more information.
THANKSGIVING DINNER - Our annual Thanksgiving Dinner is scheduled for November 18th at 5:30 p.m. in the fellowship hall. Betty Owens would like to have the ladies meet on Nov 5, after church to organize the meal. There are several turkeys that will need to be cooked and gravy to fix. Betty will be having knee surgery in November so we need to get busy now.
VOLUNTEERS - We have a good problem. Lots of little ones for children’s worship. We have so many that we need to split the group. We are needing volunteers for teachers and assistance. See Loren or Amanda if you can help.
Don’t forget that we have a podcast on https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/lorenlung and on Facebook live. Tell your friends!
Reading Through The Bible In A Year: Week 44
Week of October 22, 2017
Sunday: James 4-5
Monday: Deuteronomy 7-9
Tuesday: 2 Chronicles 29-32
Wednesday: Psalms 125-127
Thursday: Ecclesiastes 3-4
Saturday: Acts 11-12
Memory Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
"Why am I here?" "What is my purpose?" "How do I fit in?" "Is this really all there is to life?" These are some of the questions being asked by people today. The world is filled with questions but you won't find these answers on the streets.
The fact is that we were wonderfully and fearfully made by a loving God in his own image. God has a plan and purpose for each of us. And it is only in his word that you can find the answers to the questions you desire to have answered.
1 Peter 2:9 says that as Christians were were chosen to declare praise to the one who called us out of darkness. We were MADE TO PRAISE. We are made be in awe of our God. We were made to sing, shout, dance, bow down, raise our hands, and jump up and down at the sound of his name.
When others see us praising God in joy, sorrow, hardship, and persecution they will want to know how we can do such a thing. And when we tell them about our relationship with God through Jesus they too will want what we have that brings joy and praise no matter the situation.
This month in our sermon series, "Made To Praise," we will see just how we can get excited in worship, praise, and service to God.
