Pastor’s update!

Hello all!

As most of you know, Pastor Scott had a hip replacement surgery five weeks ago and is still in the recovery process. He has surpassed all of his flexibility to goals and has “graduated” physical therapy.

Pastor Scott and his family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and their support during this time. Please continue to pray for pastor’s recovery.

Have a blessed week and we hope to see you all on Sunday!

How Much Land Does One Man Need!

 

Russian author Leo Tolstoy tells the story of a rich man who was never satisfied. He always wanted more and more. He heard of a wonderful chance to get more land. For a thousand rubles he could have all that he could walk around in a day. But he had to make it back to the starting point by sundown or he would lose it all.
He arose early and set out. He walked on and on, thinking that he could get just a little more land if he kept going on. But he went so far that he realized he must walk very fast if he was to get back in time to claim the land. As the sun got lower in the sky, he quickened his pace. He began to run. As he came within sight of the starting place, he exerted his last energies, plunged over the finish line, fell to the ground, and collapsed. A stream of blood poured out of his mouth and he lay dead. His servant took a spade and dug a grave. He made it just long enough and just wide enough and buried him.
The title of Tolstoy’s story is “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” He concludes by saying, “Six feet from his head to his heels was all he needed.”

A boy with his hand in the cookie jar that could not get it out as long his hand was grasping the cookie.

Conclusion: We must come to God as a little child. With nothing of our own to stand in the way. Child-like faith. Won’t you let go of the possessions that might be holding you back from God!
