Weekly Update

This Sunday at First…

We know God guides us, but how do we tell the difference between God’s voice, usually a “still, small voice,” and the much louder voices of the world?

This Sunday we’ll hear a wonderful story from the Bible about a young man named Samuel who was wrestling with that very question. We’ll also hear an amazing story about someone who’s eyes were opened in today’s world. Come as we grow together in our ability to truly walk alongside the God who loves us!

(We worship at 8:30 and 10:55 or 11:05 on KWBW)

9 Tips to Stay Healthy During Flu Season
1. TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR. Get professional advice if you are at risk for complications from flu.
2. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY.  During flu season, everyone should be encouraged to keep their hands out of their mouths, avoid rubbing their eyes and wash their hands thoroughly several times a day, especially before meals.
3. EAT A HEALTHY DIET RICH IN VITAMINS C AND E. Foods containing these vitamins are believed to be helpful in supporting the immune system.
4. GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP. Lack of sleep may profoundly inhibit your immune system. Get a full night’s sleep to keep your body’s natural defenses at optimum efficiency.
5. STAY HYDRATED. Increasing your water intake will help you stay healthy and lessen the chance of you coming down with flu.
7. EXERCISE REGULARLY. Not only can regular exercise lower stress, but exercise can stimulate the immune system and promote healthy sleep.
8. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. If you do come down with a cold or flu, take it easy. If you believe you’re coming down with flu, the best thing you can do for friends and family is to not expose them unnecessarily to the virus.
9. SEEK HELP IF YOU GET WORSE. If your symptoms become significantly worse after the first three days of illness, especially if your fever subsides and then returns, be sure to seek medical attention right away. The reason that flu is considered a potentially dangerous infection is that it leaves the body vulnerable to other infections like pneumonia.
