Some of our children enjoy spending time in the nursery classroom after
church. We see no problem with this;
however, we would appreciate it if you,
as parents of these children, would make
sure that all of the toys and books are
picked up and put away after its usage.
This will be very helpful for those who
clean. Thanks for your cooperation.

Welcome! We pray
that you will be uplifted
as we worship together.
We strive to speak where
the Bible speaks and remain silent where the
Bible is silent. Please visit
us again.

W
e have all seen athletes and
teams who have competed
half-heartedly. They failed
to give it their all. It’s so disappointing
to witness a ball player who has the
talent, knowledge, and experience to win, but he’s
just “not in the game.” I can remember running
track in high school, and we had a member of our
relay team who could outrun anyone on the team.
However, he lacked heart— the desire to compete.
If our team ever fell behind, he would virtually
give up. I can recall one of our last races as we
were competing for district finals; this young man
literally walked across the finish line because we
were getting beat. No doubt, one of the reasons
we lost was due to half-heartedness.
How many times have you and I worshipped
God without putting our whole heart into it? We
just mouthed the words. Our thoughts were running wild during the prayers. We couldn’t remember one single point from the preacher’s sermon. It
was to this attitude that Jesus spoke in Matthew
15:8 when He said, “This people honors Me with
their lips, but their heart is far away from Me.”
Haven’t we all been there?
David encourages me in Psalm 9:1 when he
says, “I will give thanks to the Lord with all my
heart; I will tell of all Thy wonders.” Remember
that God wants whole-hearted Christians! Jesus
said it this way, “And you shall love the Lord your
God with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your mind, and with all your
strength” (Mark 12:30, emphasis mine).
This week when you are worshipping or just
—continued on page 3
Our summer series is will continue this Wednesday night, August 8, at 7:00

attend—registration forms are attached
to the flyers. There will be activities for
everyone and many great opportunities
to bond with your family and to spend
time with other Christian families.
The theme for the weekend is Generation to Generation based on Psalm
79:13, “But we your people, the sheep of
your pasture, will give thanks to you
forever; from generation to generation
we will recount your praise”.
There are several options for housing and limited space for some of the
options; so, early registration is suggested to ensure your choice.
Pre-registration is due by September 22 in order to get the discounted
rate of $60 per person, maximum of
$300 per family. If you have questions,
talk with Steve.

More Than a Prophet

spending some quiet time with God, give
Him everything you have! Pour your
heart out to Him and see how much
good it will do you. —Steven D. Minor
We would like to welcome to our
congregation sister Kaye Black, who has
expressed the desire to work and worship with us. She lives in Okarche. Her
information will be included in next
week’s bulletin, and a page in the directory will be forthcoming. Let’s make
every effort to help her feel welcome in
our family.
We congratulate
Tyler and Ciara Davis,
proud parents of Addyson

enjoyable time of fellowship and fun for
the whole family. Please plan to join us.
