Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” Does this Proverb teach that if we simply hand over our plans to God we can be sure that he will put his stamp on them? What if we find our plans changing unexpectedly, whether they be financial plans, marriage plans, or college plans? What happens when an unexpected pandemic strikes? Nevertheless, Proverbs tells us that planning, thinking ahead and figuring out what we should be doing with our time, energy, and gifts is a mark of wisdom. This Sunday, we’ll learn about how to think about the future (and plan for it) God’s way.
A couple of things to have on your mind this week:
Zoom Conversation with John Higgins on the Book of Revelation
For the next two weeks, John Higgins will be teaching on the book of Revelation for our adult Sunday school class. Perhaps more than any other book in the New Testament, the book of Revelation can leave us scratching our heads as we try to figure out what all of the symbols and images mean, not to mention how we should apply its message to our lives. I encourage you to watch the video on our website, which will be posted later in the week, then join us for a Zoom call at 12:15 pm on Sunday. Check your email for the link and password to the meeting. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you haven’t gotten the information and would like to participate.
Group Phone Call: Wednesday Mornings at 9:00 am
Each Wednesday morning at 9:00 am, we are holding a group phone conversation led by Larry LaBelle. This is a time to share with one another and to pray for each other and our church. To join the conversation, contact Larry LaBelle.
- Todd Crabtree (Bill and Barb Crabtree’s son): Pray for healing after testing positive for coronavirus.
- Carrie Tyler (close friend of LaBelles): Pray for healing after emergency trip to CDH hospital due to coronavirus; now recovering at home; pray for continued protection for husband and children.
If you have any questions or pastoral needs, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7)
