A warm welcome is extended to everyone today. We pray that everyone will be edified and encouraged as we worship our Heavenly Father together. If you are
visiting with us we welcome you and invite you to come back again.
It is hard...
To save money
To be unselfish
To avoid mistakes
To keep out of a rut
To begin all over again
To make the best of all things
To keep your temper at all times
To think first and act afterwards
To maintain a high standard
To keep on keeping on
To shoulder blame
To be charitable
To admit error
To take advice
But it always pays!
(Based on Matthew 7:1-2)

MONTHLY POTLUCK IS TODAY
SOMEONE HAD PRAYED
The day was long, the burden I had borne
Seemed heavier than I could longer bear,
And then it lifted, but I did not know
Someone had knelt in prayer;
Had taken me to God that very hour,
And asked the easing of the load, and He,
In infinite compassion, had stooped down
And taken it from me.
We cannot tell how often as we pray
For some bewildered one,
Hurt and distressed,
The answer comes,
But many times those hearts
Find sudden peace and rest.
Someone had prayed,
And Faith, a reaching hand,
Took hold of God,
And brought Him down that day!
So many, many hearts
Have need of prayer:
Oh, let us pray!
