Our Speaker this Sabbath, September 2, 2017
Elder Richard Carrigan will be presenting the message on how the most important time of the day is when we shut ourselves in alone with God and pour out our hearts to the One who cares.
There will be no Fellowship Meal this coming Sabbath, September 2. Please invite someone home for lunch!
All are invited to join a prayer group each Sabbath immediately following the main service which will meet in Prayer Room #213 to specifically pray for the church in these end times. The time together will take no more than 10-15 minutes in order to give everyone plenty of time to meet their other commitments.

A Focus on Stewardship
God enables us to give when we have nothing to give. What an awesome God! Counsels on Stewardship, pg 120 puts it this way, “Some are willing to give according to what they have... They have no income that they can spare from the necessities of their families. But there are many of this class who might ask themselves the question, ‘Am I giving according to what I might have had?’”
