Please join us this afternoon for lunch followed by an Emergency Preparedness meeting with Alain Normand @ 3:00 pm. In these times when disasters are being reported on every news bulletin let us be prepared to help in times of crisis. Lunch will be provided.
A church with high ideals for its young necessarily has high standards. Now, if high or rigorous standards are left unexplained, if they aren’t imaginatively adapted to a child’s daily routine, they quickly become burdensome and oppressive to a young person. And a child may obey for a while. He may attempt to please a parent or a teacher or a pastor, but if he does so without enthusiasm for the church’s standards and ideals, he is subtly developing the character of a rebel.
PRAYER EMPHASIS FOR THIS WEEK:
Pray for our parents and children and also our leaders who were arrested in Burma for preaching the Word of God.
