THOUGHT FOR THIS WEEK

Even as we begin our Walk to Bethlehem, let’s not forget that we have an important item on our prayer list – the calling of a new Associate Pastor. Ask the Lord to direct and guide our District President, Mike Gibson, as he compiles a list of pastors for Life in Christ to consider.

Run the Race: October 14-20, 2019

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

The final phase of Run the Race will focus on spiritual health and physical health. Weekly worship and daily Bible reading and prayer are the tools we use to strengthen our faith and trust in Jesus. Physical exercise keep these bodies God gave us in top shape. You’ll learn more in the coming week! Everyone will be able to participate!
