Meal begins at 6:00 pm with classes to follow.
We will begin with three options. There will be
a discussion group led by Joel Brondyke. There
will also be two video series for individuals to
choose from. The first will be Effective
Parenting in a Defective World, a video series
by Chip Ingram. The second series will be a
continuation of the series we were watching at
the end of last year, In the Dust of the Rabbi by
Ray Vander Laan. There will also be classes
available for children and young people.
 

 

Prayer Perspective

Heavenly Father, Help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in
traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day
and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry
and spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young
man who can't make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college
student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of
not getting his student loans for next semester.

Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the
same spot every day ("who really ought to get a job") is a slave to
addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow
through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are
savoring this moment, knowing that based on the biopsy report she got
back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping
together.

Heavenly Father, remind us each day That of all the gifts you give us
Lord, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love
with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not to just those that are
close to us, but to all humanity.

Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show patience, empathy and love.

Working for God on earth doesn't pay much......but His retirement plan
is out of this world.
