Centershot Archery Events  FOUR WEEKS…(starting last Friday and runs thru Aug 3rd) from 7-9pm.  We had a great time last Friday!  Don’t miss out!  The evening starts with safety reminders, followed by hands-on instruction on how to shoot bow & arrow. Then we move indoors to enjoy a snack while listening to a brief talk led by Harley, sharing the Gospel. Then we head back outdoors to practice our new-found skills while participating in archery games…what fun!  Be sure to tell your friends and invite a guest or two!  Have fun while sharing the Lord with them!  Open to kids & adults!  Remember to pray for this ministry!  Any questions or if you’d like to help with Centershot, see Chris. Talk it up…tell friends & family!

 

“The Race Is On!  Take a look at the Summer Reading Challenge Race Track!

* The BLUE TEAM is in the lead  (Lydia F and Penny F).

* 2nd Place team is the GREEN TEAM (Melody W & Cullen W).

* 3rd Place team is the RED TEAM (Jennifer, Johnny & Annalise F).

So far, LYDIA F leads the runners, followed by Annalise F and Jennifer F!  But a few of the runners haven’t reported any pages so things can change fast!

Encourage your teammates…and keep reading!  Turn pages in every week to encourage your progress!

 

“Baby Basket Changes” Changes discussed to enhance our Baby Basket Outreach events include starting to advertise thru churches in area town, in addition to fliers for area towns; reduce the number of towns we advertise to (based on where current families live); and allowing each family to take 2 NEW items and 5-6 GENTLY-USED bags.  One other idea is being considered but needs Elder approval first…so more later.  Please pray for this outreach to families with young children.  Signup for volunteers for  Sep & Oct are on the signup table.  Need donations:  Diapers Size 1, 2 & Pull-ups & Swimmers  Need New Items & Wipes.  Gently-Used Items: Girls 12-18M, Boys 4-5T.

 VERSES FOR YOU!

He is good; His love endures forever.   Psalms 118:1

 

Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking.  It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres.  Love never fails.”

 

This  is my prayer for you:  that your love will grow  more and more; that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love; that you will see the difference between what is important and what is not and chose what is important; that you will be pure and blameless for the coming of Christ; that your life will be full of the many good works that are produced by Jesus Christ to bring glory and praise to God.          Philippians 1:9-11

 

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  If I give all I posses to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,  but do not have love, I gain nothing.

 Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking.  It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres. Love never fails.”

 

Opponents must be gently instructed,  in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth.  2 Timothy 2:25

 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all yours ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.    Proverbs 3:5-6
