our contribution to the Judgement Day conversation

Here's the video from last week. Pastor will be away from the computer all day Saturday taking part in the MS Coast the Coast bicycle fundraising ride. Join us Sunday to continue to think about how being ready by being at peace with God is our solid comfort in life and in death!






notes for sunday, may 15

here's what's happening this weekend. Three main things:

1. Pastor Phil preaching on the end of the world. This is a current topic in various news outlets. A radio preacher from California has predicted that the world will end on May 21. Belief in the return of Jesus is a basic part of our Christian faith (Apostle's Creed: he will come again to judge the living and the dead), but we don't believe it is possible to set a time on that. We'll read different passages in the Bible about the end of the world, and think about Jesus' guidance to be ready at all times for him to return.

2. Youth meeting to solidify Creation trip plans: youth leaders are meeting with youth and families following the first service. This is an important meeting for those who are going. We have rented a van and have 22 youth and leaders attending.

3. Youth membership final meeting: At 7pm the youth and Pastor Phil will gather to wrap up their learnings for the year. At 8pm members of the board of elders will join them to talk about the faith of the youth and receive them into church membership.
