We Need Your Help!

What you need and want out of a Faith community matters to us. As we prepare to set priorities for 2020 - 2021, we need to know what you need and want and how you plan to participate in the Life of the Church. Please take 20-30 minutes to fill out the anonymous survey before February 9th. You may also take it at church. 

The Vestry will then take your feedback to help set priorities and goals for 2020-2011 during a retreat Feb. 14-15. 

The link for the survey is:

A National Ministry for supporting those whom have lost a loved one. This was led in the Fall of 2019 by our team: David Kautz, Rev. Robin, Joy Edwards, and Byron Hambrick.

We give thanks for this strong team and the support they offered to 8 people.

Another 13-week class has just begun on Tuesday, January 28th from 6:30-8 p.m. and will go til mid April. For more information, contact David Kautz at 979-824-2484 or Pastor Robin at 832-922-7022. We give thanks for the new leadership team: David Kautz, Byron Hambrick, Beverly Ross, and Lynn Koepp.

Strengthening Weak Knees

Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way. Isaiah 35:3

When I was a kid, I thought the song title “He Looked Beyond My Fault and Saw My Need,” written by Dottie Rambo in 1967, was “He Looked Beyond My Faults and Saw My Knees.” Employing the logic of a child, I wondered why God would look at knees. Was it because they were weak? I knew that weak-kneed meant “afraid.” I later discovered that Dottie had written the song about God’s unconditional love in response to her brother Eddie’s belief that he was unlovable because of the wrong things he’d done. Dottie assured him that God saw his weakness but loved him anyway.

God’s unconditional love is apparent throughout the many weak-kneed moments of the people of Israel and Judah. He sent prophets like Isaiah with messages for His wayward people. In Isaiah 35, the prophet shares the hope of God’s restoration. The encouragement that would come as a result of embracing hope would “strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way” (v. 3). Through the encouragement they received, God’s people would in turn be able to encourage others. This is why Isaiah instructs in verse 4, “Say to those with fearful hearts, ‘Be strong, do not fear.’ ”

Feeling weak-kneed? Talk to your heavenly Father. He strengthens weak knees through the truth of the Scriptures and the power of His presence. You’ll then be able to encourage others.
