I hope you are having a blessed week! Sunshine! Warmth! Enjoy it because sooner than you know we will be complaining about the hot weather.
This Friday at Zion – Be Brave Conference
Just a reminder of the girl’s conference Angelique is leading tomorrow night at the church. Information is on the church website and it’s not too late to register if you know someone that would benefit from coming to this event. I know some of you are helping with this but for those not directly involved please be involved by praying for this conference to help shape young girls to a Godly world view.
This Sunday at Zion
This week we continue in our current sermon series “Being Christian in a World of Turmoil and Terror” with a message from Luke 12 tilted “Temporal Investment for Eternal Reward.” I don’t think since the days after the Great Depression are Americans more concerned about the security of their future. Financial security, national security, way of life security and even relational security. In times of insecurity we tend to react with defensiveness and try to control what we can. That approach is not the reaction God wants us to have and only results in making the situation worse. God has a better way for us to deal with insecurity. Come Sunday and here what Jesus has to say about this in Like 12. While this series will not provide political opinions on the turmoil our country is dealing with, my prayer is for these messages to help us grow in faith and trust in God rather than in anything mankind offers for security.
This is Memorial Day Weekend! I hope you enjoy the weekend with some good friends and family. We are blessed to have our family coming from North Carolina for the weekend. They plan to be here for church on Sunday then head home. I am very proud of our Son in Law Rick for his service to our country. He has decided to make the Army a career and will stay in for at least another 9 years. He is just completing some advanced training (he can’t even tell us all of what he is doing) in preparation for his new assignment with the Army. Military service is not an easy life for the soldier and their family. This weekend be sure to thank someone you know who has served or is currently serving to protect our freedoms.
I hope you have a great weekend. Long weekends provide that much needed break from the routine of life. I hope your weekend is extra ordinary! I look forward to seeing you on Sunday. I love you and love being your pastor
