Today we meet Jesus through the eyes of Mark. In Mark we see that Jesus was very clear on why he came. He came to serve and he focused on serving all the way to the cross.  Even though death on the cross was going to cause extreme suffering, Jesus did not stop walking towards that event throughout his whole life.  He wanted others to know why he came and for who he came. He did it for us church, and he showed us a perfect example of what he desires from us.

Ladies Bible study has finished the book Invisible War so we will meet at the parsonage this Wednesday at 4:45 to watch the movie War Room. All ladies are welcome to join us, bring a snack to share if you like and see Ms. Clara show us how to use the spiritual weapon of prayer! 

 

For the month of October we thought of a creative way to pray!  We know that life is busy. Whether you have children at home or you are consumed with committees you may be on or you seem to work endless hours remembering to pray throughout the day can sometimes slip our minds unintentionally. 

An easy idea to remind you and your family to pray and what to pray for is to find an inexpensive white board for each bathroom and attach it to or near the mirror (you can use those easy to remove mounts). Write on the white board things your family wants to keep in prayer. While your family is doing mindless tasks like brushing their teeth or combing their hair, it will make it easier to remember to use the time talking to God.   

 

 

In The Word

This week we are going to read about Jesus in the book of Mark.  What are you hearing this week from God through Mark?  As you read these passages pick out something you see that Relates these passages together, then something you Learned in the passages and finally what will you Apply from theses passages.
