“And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.”    1 Corinthians 9:25
Rev. Banks continued his series Following Jesus: titled Make a Difference with scripture text taken from 1 Corinthians. David told how the Eskimos don’t use the word joy, but they are most happy when they feed their sled dogs.  So instead of joy it’s wagging their tails. Don’t laugh it’s just the only way I could repeat what I heard.  Maybe I’ll tell about the horse trainer who trained the wild horse with love instead of breaking his will.  What I’m trying to say is Lord, I can’t love everyone, or be joyful in all things, or have peace in the midst of troubles.  It is only through Your Spirit within me that I can be filled with Your love, Your joy, Your peace.
Our Lenten Study will resume on Wednesday 22nd at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. in the youth building.
Kids Club at 3:30 in the Sanctuary  We are still remodeling our fellowship hall and it will be really nice once it is finished.
Prayers for Connie Alexander family, Wanda Yarborough, Ron Yarborough Jr, Linda Wilson, Daniel Shipp and Jessica Hatley.
Have a great week and don’t forget to be kind.
