Prayer Requests


Aug 7 - Bible Study
Because of our next Monthly Interactive Bible Study, services will be at 1:00.
Study at 2:30. Please bring food and drinks for your own family for a picnic lunch.
The fellowship hall will be available for family lunches at 2:30pm, with the discussion beginning shortly after. Please bring food and drinks for your own family for a picnic lunch.

The topic for our next several Sabbath Bible discussions is The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew chapters 5-7. The questions we will be discussing this time are from Matthew 5:13-20:
How are the Firstfruits the salt of the earth?
What does it mean to lose savor (flavor) and how does this happen to salt?
How are the first fruits the light of the world?
What does it mean to hide our light?
What does it mean to let our light shine before men?
What does it mean that Christ did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it?
How does our righteousness exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees?
