No Sunday Services January 31, 2010

From Pastor Jim:

Dear Church Family – In light of the poor conditions of the roads this afternoon, and the frigid forecast for tonight and for tomorrow which will not help to improve the road conditions, the Deacons consider it in the best interest of safety to cancel services for tomorrow.

Let me share with you something I shared with Jane Hardy yesterday…

Job 37:5-14

At God’s command amazing things happen, wonderful things that we can’t understand. He commands snow to fall on the earth, and sends torrents of drenching rain. He brings our work to a stop; he shows us what he can do. The wild animals go to their dens. The storm winds come from the south, and the biting cold from the north. The breath of God freezes the waters, and turns them to solid ice. Lightning flashes from the clouds, as they move at God’s will. They do all that God commands, everywhere throughout the world. God sends rain to water the earth; he may send it to punish us, or to show us his favor. Pause a moment, Job, and listen; consider the wonderful things God does.

God Bless and stay safe!

Pastor Jim
