VERSE OF THE MONTH

This year’s Spiritual Growth Plan focuses on prayer. Ponder a verse and a comment on the blessing of prayer from your Spiritual Growth Committee: Romans 12:12 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”  Keep praying, whether times are happy or sad, easy or difficult, prosperous or wanting. Stay close to your Father in heaven and open your heart to him often.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS STUDY – September 8 to November 17

As disciples of Jesus, our lives are designed by and dedicated to the glory of God.  The goal of this study is to examine the biblical blueprint for Spiritual Gifts in the body of Christ, and the discovery of our own personal gift makeup.  Each of our members has one or more special gifts from God with which he/she can express appreciation to our savior for all that he has done to save us.  Starting on Christian Education Sunday (September 8th at 9:15 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall), we will look at the Foundational Gifts upon which the church was established.  Our study will tie together with a special service on October 3 & 6 to engage, involve and train our members in meaningful and rewarding service to God and to our neighbors (FRANS).  Nursery care for small children and Sunday School for older children is available.
