Hello Hope,

As I write this my heart feels a bit heavy. A group of us (F3) were working out on Monday morning downtown near Williston and at the end of our time we were sharing prayer requests. The first thing that came to my mind was the recent shootings in Buffalo. I started to share what I knew of the event and was eventually interrupted by my friend Clifford. These murders by a young white supremacist were much more personal to Clifford than me. You could hear it in his voice.

Sunday's Message: Peter often gets the reputation in scripture for being unpredictable. A closer look at Peter’s journey with Jesus gives us a glimpse into the shift from relying on his own strength to being shaped by the cross. Peter’s story reminds us that we are more than our history- the same grace and forgiveness that Jesus gave him continually is available for us today. Take heart and be encouraged when you listen!

Memory Verse: Psalm 31:24-- "Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord."

Tithing is an act of generosity and a simple response to God's generosity to us. Since we are doing church a little differently, we encourage you to tithe online or send your giving to our post office box. Our gifts support the mission of this church in our community and beyond and we are grateful for your generosity.
