Memory Verse
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever Psalm 23:6.
Life Lessons
We cannot always see goodness and mercy ahead of us, but when we look back, we can see all the ways God has helped us. That helps us to move forward, knowing that wherever the Lord leads us, our ultimate destination is an eternal dwelling place of joy.

Guest Speaker
Welcome, Dr. Bob Wilkin. Founder and executive director of Grace Evangelical Society.
Memory Verse
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23).
Life Lessons
The heart should be guarded for out of it come one’s actions (cf. Luke 6:45). Here the word “heart” means more than mental or emotional capacity; it also encompasses one’s values (cf. Matt. 6:21). The word “heart” in Hebrew refers to one’s emotions (Prov. 12:25; 13:12; 14:10, 13) but more often to his intellect (such as understanding, 10:8; discernment, 15:14; reflection, 15:28), or will (5:12). When we fill our hearts with God’s Word, God can draw others to Himself through us.
Happy Birthday

Memory Verse
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper (Psalm 1:3).
Life Lessons
Under the image of a fruitful tree, the psalmist declared that whatever the righteous do will prosper (cf. 92:12–14). Two
qualifications need to be noted. First, the fruit, that is, the prosperity, is produced in its season and not necessarily
immediately after planting. Second, what the godly person does will be controlled by the Law of God (1:2). So if a person
meditates on God’s Word, his actions will be godly, and his God controlled activities will prosper, that is, come to their divinely directed fulfillment.
Happy Birthday

Memory Verse
If these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:8).
Life Lessons
The Christian who has the character qualities seen in 2 Peter 1:5-7 and who has them in increasing measure will be a fruitful follower of Christ. The Greek word translated barren here might better be translated idle or lazy. A Christian who is inactive in his Christian faith will also be unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Conversely a believer who is vigorous in his service for God will most assuredly be fruitful.

Church-Wide Thanksgiving Luncheon

On Sunday, November 21, 2021 we will have a luncheon in the Fellowship Hall after the morning service. Please see Terrie Searle or Becky Steller to sign up for the event. We will also be assigning food items for people to prepare and bring that day.

We have a menu in mind and you will be asked to prepare and bring one or two items that we will then set out and share “pot Luck” style. Details will be given to you when you sign up. The church will provide tea and lemonade.

This is an annual event that we always look forward to having, we hope that you and your family will join us this year. Bringing the food items already prepared will help a lot. Hot items will be kept warm and items that need to be kept cold will be refrigerated until time to serve.

Memory Verse
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29).
Life Lessons
All of us need rest, and Jesus promises to give it to us when we find our rest in Him. He is or Burden-Bearer. When we surrender the circumstances of our lives to Him, He lifts us up and infuses our hearts with fresh hope and wisdom. Some situations are just too difficult for us to handle, but nothing is too great for Him. He promises to refresh our weary souls when we cry out to Him.

Memory Verse
“…His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue…” (2 Peter 1:3).
Life Lessons
God’s divine power has adequately endowed believers with all things related to life and godliness. Born-again believers have everything they could possibly need to live a godly life including the indwelling Spirit of God and the “exceedingly great and precious promises” (2 Peter 1:4) of God’s word. These valuable promises are the means by which believers can be sharers of the divine nature and can escape the lust-driven corruption of the world around them.
