If you were unable to attend the memorial service for Amber Yokimas, it is now available to watch online.
Christian Book Club will meet Sunday, June 25 after church (around 12:30) at the home of Barbara Sibbald, 3378 Wishart Rd., 250-474-1698.
Our book club discusses Christian books, and is an inclusive group. We will be discussing "A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers" (April's book choice) and "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp.
Please join us for soup, tea and coffee. We will also discuss changing the time for next September, to possibly accommodate more people. Please bring a friend!
If you would like to join us, but Sunday afternoon is not a good time for me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know, and indicate a time that would work for you.
Moses is an example of faith to us because he lived in anticipation of reward from and with God.
Moses' parents are examples of faith to us because they protected God's chosen servant.
Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph are examples of faith to us because they trusted God with things beyond their control.
When motherhood, or any other significant or role or relationship, goes awry, remember that God sees you, hears you, and that you are significant to Him.
Abraham is an example of faith to us because he trusted God even when it seemed doing so would make what had been promised become impossible.
Westside elder, Jarek Bekesza, preaches about how the difference between being alive and living a fulfilled life is believing in and follow Jesus.
Jesus' followers can say no to the immediate gratification of this world knowing that something better is waiting at home in Heaven.
The truth of the resurrection of Jesus captures the allegiance of of His followers.
Jesus said He would die and rise again - and did! Our celebration of and rejoicing in that calls us to cross the gulf we have created between us and the world.
We, who follow Jesus, need to watch carefuly in order to not miss what Jesus wants to do in our lives and in our time.
