Oasis Craft help needed
Oasis Camp is fast approaching and we need some help. This Saturday, the 15th, from 12:00 p.m. to early afternoon we will be assisting our camp craft team with the assembly of the items needed for this year’s project at our craft preparation party. You don’t need to be particularly ‘crafty’ to be part of this, there’s lots of general things to do. A pizza lunch will be provided.
Summer Prayer Time
Pastor Dan invites any who might be free, willing, and able to join him for prayer on Thursday mornings, from 8-9am. We'll be praying for the church, for the world, and for our lives.
For Zoom link email Pastor Dan.
Summer thoughts to keep you on the journey: Feeling confused these days? Focus on the Lord
I know, its summertime, we want to relax, take it easy, not think too deep. But let’s be honest, these are confusing times, aren’t they? Things just don’t look like they used to and more and more it seems like that’s not going to change. We have a war in Europe and fighting in Africa, we have rising food prices due to inflation and so many other things going on. It creates a lot of confusion. Let’s remember though who wants to amplify confusion. Our enemy, the devil, is the author of confusion. He is a deceiver who seeks to bring confusion and lead many astray. He’s a liar and works hard to make us doubt God’s truth. From the beginning of time, he has lied and twisted God’s word to bring doubt and disbelief. The Bible tells us he seeks to lead the whole world astray. Jesus told us “…there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
How do we overcome the confusion the devil would seek to sow in our lives?
James 4 tells us: “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
The key to dealing with confusion in these confusing days is not to get caught up in media hype or social media musings but be submitted to God and stay connected to the Bible which is ‘sharper than a double-edged sword’ and will not only never lead us astray but will also help us cut through the fog of confusion.
In His grip,
