Food for Thought: 

What is your favorite place to be? "Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere." Psalm.84:10a. The composer Brahms, made a beautiful arrangement around this verse that speaks of the loveliness of God's house. Every Sunday morning we are told that we are gathered in our Father's house, with our brothers and sisters. Here we are in His presence: is this your favorite place to be?


Next Sunday, August 25th

Pastor Jake will be continuing his series on trees in the Bible by reflecting on Matthew 12:33-37, Make your Tree Good. Being healthy spiritually doesn’t just happen and there are many ways we can prepare and work the soil of our heart in order to be heathy spiritually. We are called to do the hard work in following Jesus to make sure that we produce good fruit and are a blessing wherever God places us.
