April – October our Saturday Service is at 5 pm
A CARING TIME CHANGE
Saturday, August 12th the worship time will be 5:30pm. This will be a one time change in order to allow more time of transition between the Schmaltz/Randall wedding at 3:30pm and the Saturday night worship usually beginning at 5pm April – October. God bless Samantha and Ryan as they begin their new life together as Husband and Wife.
August 21st will be the total Solar Eclipse. It is the first time it will cross the Continental United States since 1918. Even though we can’t see it in Michigan it will be reported and recorded and shared. Many are traveling to be in an area where they can observe this once in a life time event. It is being reported as a big event that will impact communities. What do we make of this as Christians?
Joel 2:30 “I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth.” God’s word tells us these things will happen, they fascinate and amaze us, and remind us of God’s creation and how Wonderful it all is.
As the time approaches there will be more reporting and discussion. We can use this as an opportunity to give witness of our faith. These signs and wonders surely get peoples attention! Some react with fear, that it is the end of things. But the scripture would remind us that these things will be happening before the end comes. It is a reminder of God’s presence. His Word of Truth and how God is master over all He has created. We are reminded the universe is huge and complex and we are small. God is God and we are His creation. In our conversations we can comfort people, telling them God told us these things would come, so we wouldn’t be caught off guard, and be in a panic, but to keep our trust and our focus in Him who has made us and all things.
So…we give God the Glory again, and tell others – we might say…”Yes, amazing isn’t it, what God does, and wants us to see? He even sent a Savior to suffer and die for our sins – so we would be with Him forever! And that is even more amazing that a total solar eclipse. By faith in Jesus, we will be with the one true God forever. Our God is the one who even in the most darkest of times, is our light and life.
In His time together we share with confidence, the truth He gives in His Word. That explains what’s going on in the world God has made.
In His time together with you, observing and sharing.
