SPECIAL: Mike and Gina Yancey

"Precious Friend is He"




Pastor Mike Yancey


Jesus has given you a promise and a gift. YOU have been given this gift.  It’s the gift of peace. Do you want more peace in your heart? The peace Jesus gives is unlike any thing the world calls peace. It is peace IN the turmoil of day-to-day living. It is a peace that steadies you and a calm that encases you even with life is not calm around you.
Jesus told His followers that after He returned to Heaven God the Father would send them the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, who would teach them all things and remind them of everything Jesus had said. Jesus knew that His followers would need a Helper, an Encourager and a Comforter to keep them sharp in their faith and to fill them with this peace. He knew that they, and eventually us, you and I, would need to be reminded of the things Jesus taught and of the peace that He has for us.
He gives us one instruction as He promises this peace. He tells us, “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” -Gail Rodgers


“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27


Many thanks for those of you who weathered out the storm yesterday and came to give a helping hand. Despite the rain, lots of projects were done. Downstairs painted, new linoleum in the restroom, the sanctuary windows clean, wall painted, pews oiled, the carpets clean, and lots of cleaning done. The front yard got a facelift with new planter and yard landscaping. The downstairs parsonage is making progress remodeling the small apartment.
We still need to get the church exterior painted, gravel replaced in the back, cooler installed, and the sod laid at the parsonage. Thank you Matt and Golden for all your time and effort organizing this day of work and worship.
