Anne Lamott says that there are three essential prayers: Help, Thanks, Wow. When a non-believer says, "I wish I could learn to be a better husband/wife/dad/mom, etc., from a Christian," they are confessing that they can't do it on their own; they are praying, "Help." In 2 Kings 5:1-27 we read about a man who admitted that he needed help. And help is available, through the blood of Jesus. Join us for the 5th message in our summer sermon series on "What Non-Christians really think about Christians." July 29, 10 a.m.
This Sunday, July 22, we return to our summer sermon series on "What Non-Christians Really Think of Christians." Another one of their perceptions is that Christians don't seem to be different from non-Christians. That perception is valid. And one of the reasons that we don't look different, is that we are afraid of being different. In I Peter 2:4-12 God reminds us that we are his "special possession." With that assurance we can have the confidence to dare to be different - all to the glory of God. We share the communion meal during this service, and we welcome members of the Neema Children's Choir from Uganda. 10: 00 a.m.
This Sunday, July 15, we are all about Vacation Bible School. We just completed VBS and our service will include some of the great songs we did. The message is from our Wednesday story about Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10). During the service we will also be baptizing a baby: Flynn William Harris, son of Thom and Charlene. Hope you can join us! 10 a.m.
