STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT:
Matthew 22:5 – ‘But they paid no attention and went off, one to his farm, another to his business.’ The invitation to join God in His feast and in His work is easily ignored. The rest of life seems so much more pressing, and we always think that there will be another time when we can catch back up with God. But what joys are we missing when we set aside God’s invitation to join Him in His plans and purposes? What inheritance are we trading for the world’s bowl of pottage?

FOUR PART SERMON
This Sunday, October 15th , will be the final part of our sermon series on the Epistle to Philippians. We will be focusing on the theme “Rejoice in the Lord Always.”

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON THIS WEEK
Hezekiah Prays. Hezekiah prayed in faith to God and was delivered. Jesus, our mediator and advocate with the Father, intercedes for us, granting us deliverance from sin, death, and the devil.
