Good morning, and let me say that you are going to have a great day. There are some people who have made it their mission in life to be nasty. They go through the day complaining and when there's nothing to complain about, they take out their magnifying glass of darkness and look for something to complain about. For us who believe we are reminder in Psalm 118:24 "This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it." As Christians we should go about today looking for good and should a dark cloud pass by, we are to be looking for the silver lining. John 10:10 "The thief does not come (everyday) except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come (everyday) that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." We are examples of who we follow and we are making examples of those who are following us. This day is waiting for you to arrive, my confidence in you is high that you will be a blessing and receive a blessing everywhere you go.
This Sunday I will be sharing, 'Stumbling Or Stepping Stones.' As we do life we are all passed stones that offend us. The stone itself is not the problem but it's what we do with the stone that changes our life.
We have cancelled the breakfast time for the first Sunday in Dec but we are looking forward to starting the New Year with Family Sunday.

Starting on the 2nd Sunday in the New Year, from 9:30 till 10:15 (before the morning service) there will be an 8 to 10 week New Life Class. These classes are for anyone who is new to the church and would like to learn more about some of the basic reasons for us placing our faith in Jesus. Charlene Petrie will be the instructor, Charlene comes as a career teacher from our educational system and a great woman of faith. She is looking forward to helping you reach higher heights in the Lord.
