This week's Sermon Notes for Thursday, September 15 and Sunday, September 18

 Words of grace

Genesis 1:26-27-“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness'…So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them."

Scripture - Mark 12:13-17



Today, we take most of our pictures on our phones. And we see the image instantly. Very few of us, if any, develop the pictures ourselves. However, if you did, you would discover the time-consuming and deliquite process required to achieve the desired outcome – a perfectly developed picture.

The photographer takes his time when developing a picture. In the same way, it takes time for God to continue His work in developing one into the image of His Son.

 Who are you during this time? Do you have the same patience?

 This, and more will be the topic of Sunday’s message.

 See you Sunday!  Pastor Tyler

· 12 Relevant Voices of Truth -This Bible study beginning in August on Wednesday’s will come from the 12 “Minor Prophets” (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi). The message of the “Minor Prophets” is not minor at all. Though their messages were shorter, they were no less powerful nor no less needed. The truth they reveal is very relevant for our world in 2016.                          Room 208                          Led by Pastor Harvey

 In Before Amen, Max Lucado, a self-professed "recovering prayer wimp," reveals his personal struggles with prayer. He will show you how he discovered that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.                            Room 112                              Led by Harriet Murray
