This Sunday we welcome The Seasoned Singers to our worship service. They will present a concert of both sacred and patriotic music under the direction of Bob Dye and accompanied by Dot Ryon.
Plan on joining us!
On Sunday, July 27, we have been invited to an open house across the street at the Pinnacle Club following our worship service. This will be in place of our normal refreshment time. Come and see this new living facility for those 55 and over. The Pinnacle is providing the food and a tour.
Pastor & Mrs. Cobb are on vacation through the end of next week. The office will be operating on reduced hours. Please call before stopping in!
Please remember in prayer ~

All Out of Teenagers ?Read Psalm 128
For 18 years, our home was blessed by the presence of teenagers. But now that our youngest is in his 20s my wife and I are all out of teenagers.
Those years were full of challenges and demands that sometimes zapped our strength and took all of our mental and emotional reserves. Along the way, we navigated the rough seas of the sudden death of one of our four teens. We also enjoyed the thrills of success and struggled through the turmoil of rebellion. As I look back on our experiment in parenting, we learned some valuable lessons:
All teens need unconditional love because they live in a conditional world.
A love of God뭩 Word is vital to successfully transferring faith from one generation to the next.
Teens need to develop a relationship with Christ that is based not on rules but on a deep love of Jesus.
Has God placed any young people in your life? Whatever their age, love them unconditionally. Help them learn to love God뭩 Word. Show them how to have a deep love for Jesus. And hold on!
