Here is your life!

Guy Smiley does a segment on Sesame Street (or at least he used to do it when my kids were young) called, "Here is your Life."  One of those segments is about a house, recalling the contributions of the architect, the bricklayer, the carpenter, and so on. "Here is your life," he says.  It sounds a bit like I Corinthians 3:1-15 where Paul talks about a construction project.  This Sunday we look at the quality of our work in light of the messages to the 7 churches of Revelation.  Our church is built on the foundation which is Jesus Christ.  We are to build on that foundation and then God himself will judge the quality of our work.  Let's take the test, so that we can truthfully and honestly, gauge the health of our churches. Go to   , take the little test, and then talk about your test score with your elder or your friends.  What might we do, as a church, to get that score up?  We are building on a solid foundation - that foundation demands a strong and beautiful building of quality workmanship and lasting materials.  Sunday, July 27, 10 a.m.

God's love is....

 This week over 100 students and volunteers filled our church for our Vacation Bible School.  We sang fun songs, listened to Bible stories and saw them acted out; we memorized Bible verses, made amazing crafts, played crazy games, and enjoyed great treats.  We watched a week-long play as the actors searched for treasure.

All of us found the best treasure ever:  God's love. And we discovered that God's love is shown in Jesus, his love is kind and patient, his love is for everyone, God's love is forgiving.  God's love never fails!
