Outreach service opportunity
We’ve been sharing a bit lately on our outreach initiative with the Junction Neighborhood Association but that’s not all that’s going on. We’re also looking to do a ’door hanger’ campaign to introduce our neighbors in the new housing subdivision across the Hanlon to us. In order to do this we need a champion for this outreach. Someone with good organization skills and heart to pray for our new neighbors would be perfect to work with me in putting this together. Let me know if that’s you!
Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream as we look at a church in motion
This Sunday at 11am we continue our fall series: “A church in motion”: the book of Acts. Jacob will be looking at Peter’s opportunities to share his faith to an unlikely recipient. Does this have any relevance to what we’re facing today? I think it does! We’ll see on Sunday!
Remember, you can join us as we gather in-person or you can connect through our website www.guelphbiblechapel.ca our YouTube channel as well as Facebook LIVE.
Thought for the day: Go to God with your fears
The Bible instructs us many times to “fear not.” God doesn’t want us to be debilitated by fear. For those who have the proper awe and respect for God and who strive to obey His commands, God makes some wonderful promises. We read in Isaiah 41: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand”.
Jesus said this: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”.
As we grow in the faith to believe these promises, we can increase our ability to turn our worries over to God. Consider this biblical principle in your battle with fear: We can ask God for His strength and peace. David, a man after God’s own heart, faced many frightening situations. After escaping one terrifying incident in the midst of Philistine territory, he wrote in the Psalms, “I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears”. Paul gave us this advice and reassurance: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ”.
Do you find yourself fearful? Go to God with your fears by applying these principles and I bet you you’ll find things get a lot better.
In His grip,
