It’s amazing how much of our fear comes from other people. Crime, terrorism, violence, general mean-ness… all of it is fear of people who are different than we are. At our worst we deny our fear of other people, convincing ourselves we aren’t racist for instance, or even that our reactions are justified. But even at our best we often don’t know how to improve. It’s amazing how our fear of other people harms our quality of life, preventing us from being as happy as God intends!
This week we continue our look at the things that make us afraid. While there is a time for legitimate fear, most of the time we needn’t be afraid. Come this Sunday to learn strategies from faith to help you live a life free of fear, true gifts from God!
Wonderful Wednesday/Third Service
Come at 6:00pm this Wednesday, April 18th for Wonderful Wednesday/Third Service in Friendship Place. We meet each Wednesday in April with a covered dish meal and a different speaker each week. (Come even if you can’t bring food, though, there’s always enough!) This week’s speaker is Brenda Hogan! Come with a friend and enjoy the food, fun, fellowship & faith!
We give thanks for the life of Calvin Singleton. You can read his obituary by clicking here.
Don’t forget to support our Hope Houses, the colorful boxes on the west side of our building! Bring anything to leave for anyone to take.
Have you linked your Dillons Plus card with the church? If you do, a portion of all your normal purchases will go to support our ministries! You can set it up by clicking here or contact the office if you’d like help.
Have you been coming to Wonderful Wednesday and Third Service? It’s a great way to keep faith strong mid-week!
