Book study on Romans, Tuesday mornings at 10am on the book "If God is for Us".

The RES group and a few others volunteered by helping put together the church's playground this weekend. They put the swing set back up, mulched, and put up the timbers. They donated several hours of their Saturday morning to do it and it looks awesome thank you all!

I find myself wondering “Where is the love?” Where is God, who is love, when so much is tearing at our heart strings and drawing us into a wilderness. Daily I pray, “Father, Father, Father help us send some guidance from above, 'Cause people got me questionin', where is the love?” (a verse from “Where is the Love?”) or something similar. This song talks about how old ways have changed and asks, “what is wrong with the world that there is so much hate?” written in 2003, not so long ago.

Faith is the fertile ground where God’s love grows as we live by the fruits of the Spirit, “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” These gifts, virtues, unite us with the steadfast love of God. So, as the world pulls at our heart strings, I invite you to pause, reflect on whether these gifts are guiding you. Instead of letting the world pull at our heart strings, we must pause and give our hearts to God. As we pause, I can see God gathering up our heart strings and strumming them into a beautiful new song love song for all the world. There is the love.
