In fact, we are supposed to radiate joy, peace, and contentment that is so unmistakable and so attractive that others are naturally drawn to us because they want what we have. And yet, in today's culture, the vast majority of Christians are perceived as angry, judgmental people who don't seem to derive any joy from life whatsoever. So why aren't we happy? Join us Sunday mornings at 9a starting March 18 as we discuss this topic. Materials: Randy Alcorn’s book: Happiness, DVD sessions, and workbook. Mission News – On behalf of more than 4 million of our persecuted Christian family members whom VOM helps each year, I want to thank you for your prayers and gifts. Many of our persecuted have asked me to share Philippians 1:3 with you – “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” I pray that you will receive their thanks with great joy. You have blessed and encouraged them in their time of great need. And from God’s Word, I want to encourage you with Gal. 6:9, “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” We know God wants us to advance His gospel message and to stand together as one completely united body. Together, we will surely reap a harvest for eternity!

If you’ve ever wondered what the Trinity is all about and why it matters (and you should!), you will find this book a treasure. Reeves makes the case that in many ways, God’s character is defined by His Fatherhood and His eternal love for the Son. Then he takes us on a delightful journey to see how this truth affects our own existence. With humor and precision, Reeves leads us on a wonderful discovery of why it matters that we worship a triune God. Answers questions like, what was God doing before creation? How does God’s love co-exist with His judgment? Don’t we all worship the same God, just by different names? Outstanding book. Highly recommended. The Congregational Letter regarding the name change is available in the foyer at the back of the church. Please submit written name change suggestions to the church office or one of the Elders by March 11. Vote will be taken after church on March 18.
