Joe & Kristi (Blair) Rule ~ Wedding Picture

This is a picture from Joe & Kristi's wedding. I'm sure they would appreciate your prayers for them as they set out on this new journey. Note: I am not the one officiating at the front, in case you are trying to figure out the attire.

Great week of VBS!

Thanks so much to all those involved in Vacation Bible School. This includes those who served in the many different capacities, invited children, showed friendship to parents who walked through the doors. A great deal of time and effort went into this event. We ask that you pray that God would use the truths that were taught to encourage boys and girls to follow Jesus. Also, to encourage parents to lead their children in this important step.

Well Done, Church!

2016 Urban Hope Work Weekend

Here are some updates from our 2016 Urban Hope Work Weekend in Philadelphia.

Picture above is from a year ago when the building had been gutted and we began laying out and framing the rooms.

This is a picture of what it looks like now. This is from the first floor where a meeting room and kitchen are located. Bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs.

Here is a picture of the outside of the Balmer building in which we stayed which is where the construction from last year took place.

This is the beginning of one of our projects this year. Follow This Link for more pictures of this year's projects. Two bathrooms were also tiled, but I don't have pictures of that. Thanks to the men who went and served those who serve.

Date Night

Had a great time at "Date Night" on Friday, February 12. Thanks for those who invested the time to make it happen - planning, decorating, child care, etc. It was a fun time, even with the snow. Thanks to Victor Cebotari for the music - "The One Man Band".



Apologies for no pics of the food and fellowship.

How To Make Your Life Count ~ Sermon Notes from Sunday - 11/29/2015

I have been reflecting on Sunday's message - "How to Make Your Life Count" from Psalm 90. We first looked at the Three Foundational truths which we need to consider, and then Four Specific prayer requests.

I. Three Foundational Truths - vv 1-11
* We need to know who God is (His character Person) -- vv 1-2
* We Need to Know the Brevity of Life - vv 3-6
* We Need to Understand the Difficulty of Life - vv 7-11

II. Resulting Prayer to Make Our Days Count - vv 12-17
* Prayer to Gain a Heart for Wisdom - v 12
* Four things for which to Pray Daily - vv 13-17
   - Prayer for Satisfaction in God - vv 13-14
   - Prayer that God would make us Glad in the Morning - v 15
   - Prayer that we would see God work through us - daily - v 16
   - Prayer that we might leave a legacy for God - v 17

I encourage each of us to add those four specific areas to our daily prayer time.

That's the Cliff Notes version. If you want to listen to the message itself, fleshed out, here is the link:
