Help, Senior Adult! What did I get us into?


Posted Thursday, April 29, 2010 at 5:42 PM

Or maybe that should read, "Help a senior adult." Either way, Rebecca and I stopped by the Thompson's house earlier this week to see what work they wanted done. After sweet ol' Edna ran through the list of things she wanted done, I replied, "That's it?" Edna then proceeded to show us a few other chores that needed to be done, as though she was anticipating my answer. All of that being said, I need your help next Saturday, May 8 (yes, I'm pushing our Senior Adult weekend back a week).

Here are the details:

When: Saturday, May 8, 8:45 a.m. - noon
-- childcare provided (need number of children and ages by Sunday afternoon)
Where: Meet at church and leave for the Thompson's house
-- directions provided to the Thompson's house, if needed
What: Do various chores in the yard and around the house
-- cut up and move some logs
-- weed an overgrown flowerbed
-- fix a screen cover on the chimney
-- potential cleaning jobs inside the house

God Provides


Posted Wednesday, April 28, 2010 at 6:11 PM

This final week of this study will be about God's provision. Every time we see a difficulty whenever we are leaning on God we often ask the question "how?" How God will you provide in this instance, or how will you provide for my family in this area of our lives?
Remember the first week was God's call - the "where"
The second week was God's Covenant or Promise - the "what"
The third two weeks ago was God's Timing - the "when"
This final week about Facing the Unknown ends appropriately with - the "how"

I look forward to this coming Sunday as we explore this last question in more detail. To read ahead, we will be looking at the story of Isaac being sacrificed by Abraham (see Genesis 22).

See you this weekend.

Senior Adult Day


Posted Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at 6:09 PM

On Saturday, May 1 our Life Group will be working at the home of Howard and Edna Thompson, planting flowers and placing a cover on the chimney (to prevent squirrels from getting in).

The time has not yet been finalized. Please leave a comment on the blog post, or on the Facebook update if you will be able to help out.

We'll post more details as soon as we know them.

God's Timing


Posted Friday, April 16, 2010 at 8:18 PM

A preview to this week is to think of something you have had to wait on for a long time. Does anything come to mind? If you are like most people you may think of a time as a child when you had to wait on your birthday present or a Christmas present. Maybe other thoughts come to mind...that you have waited for?

God's timing can be somewhat frustrating to us when we are not trusting on him. One thing to remember is that he is in control so we can always trust in him and his timing. Last week we looked at God and his thoughts and ways being so much higher than our own, it helps to have this high-view of God to remind us once again of how big he is and how small we really are. I look forward to Sunday and our discussions on God and his timing.
See you there...

God's Covenant


Posted Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 4:13 PM

I mispoke on Sunday saying we had just 3 lessons, when in fact we do have 4 with one coming after our 120th anniversary Sunday. So this week we will look at God's Covenant. Review Romans 8: 22-27 for study ahead of time if you would like as we talk about his covenant in the life of Abram and it applies to us.

See you Sunday...

Facing the Unknown


Posted Friday, April 2, 2010 at 1:16 PM

Many people feel like their life leads them from one path to the next with no certainty. Is this the right job? Is now the time to have kids? Am I on the right path?

Over the next few weeks we will look at the life of Abraham and how it would look in today's world. He took steps of faith toward what God was calling him to do. How about us?

Week 1 - God's Call
Week 2 - God's Timing
Week 3 - God's Provision

I am looking forward to what the Lord will do in each of our hearts as we focus on the great unknown, to hopefully find out for each of our own life's what HE is calling us to do.
