Week Six: The Man Born Blind

Do you ever feel like life is a puzzle that you have to figure out? Have you ever thought, “If I just had a sign from God, then I would know for sure”? God does give signs: miracles. Join us as we take a look at the seven miracles of Jesus in the Gospel of John.

Psalm for the Day: Psalm 126
Scripture of the Week: John 9:1-11

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
now and for ever. Amen.

OPPORTUNITIES TO GIVE


Fellowship Hall Almost Paid Off!
Thank you to all those who have supported the building of our Fellowship Hall. Our goal is to have it paid off by our 175th Anniversary Celebration this September. We only have around $5000 left to raise to pay off the loan. If you would like to designate a gift towards the Fellowship Hall fund, please be sure to specify that by writing "Fellowship Hall" in the memo of your check, or on your offering envelope. Keep up the great work!


MWSU Food Drive
The MWSU Campus has a food pantry to help students in need be able to eat. Many times just paying tuition and rent uses up most of their income. There are times when the cafeteria is not open and a student cannot afford to eat out. Your donation of any of the following items will support students in their education and help the graduate with less debt: canned meats (tuna and salmon), crackers, peanut butter, canned ravioli, tuna helper, evaporated milk, canned fruit, pre-made jello/pudding/etc., cereal/oatmeal, pasta/sauce, shampoo/conditioner, bar soap, deodorant, body wash, razors, diapers, baby food.
