As our kids head back to school later this month, we want them, as well as all parents and each of us, to “fix our thoughts.” Education empowers you! Always think positive, happy thoughts -- which coincides with Pastor Bob’s “Sonrise” message to all. The Bible speaks often about the power of the mind and the tongue. You become what you think, as our thoughts are transformational. Our minds are powerful and our thoughts shape who we are and will become. Read Romans 12:2, and go be exceptional and great at whatever you do! You are brilliant, talented, fabulous, and wonderful - go make life happen!
Life is fragile, handle with prayer!
Engage in Right Thinking … 6“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Meditate On These Things
8“Whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there are any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Phil 4:6, 8
Life is a journey; enjoy every mile.
Summer Church Support
We’re enjoying the hot summer, as God gave us seasons. If you take off for vacation and a little relaxation during summer months, please continue your faithful stewardship. Most congregations experience a financial summer slump. While members vacation, Sunday attendance and contributions drop, but our services and expenses do not vacate, and monthly bills and commitments continue. If you are away, remember that “electronic giving” where offerings are transferred automatically from bank, credit union, or savings accounts can be arranged and on-line giving remains available. You may also take envelopes and mail in your contributions. Thank you, and remember our church theme:
Tomorrow’s Forecast: God Reigns and the Son Shines!
As we enter spring season, let us spring up with God and into a closer relationship with Christ Jesus while letting the SON shine in our lives. When born again, all things become new and you grow in the Word of God – especially if you consistently read God’s B.I.B.L.E. – basic instructions before leaving earth. Definitely Spring Forward with the Lord so you won’t Fall Back into sin. As for spring cleaning, let Jesus clean – Acts 22:16, and if life is raining on you, spring forward and get under God’s umbrella.
Spring is a time when things bloom and grow – just like each of us, the Lord’s people, should be doing. Spring is an ideal time to get outdoors more to spread love, to plant lovely flowers, and to enjoy God’s beautiful creation – through which His glory shines. Let God’s glory shine in YOU!
