Recent Activities

February 8-9, 2019,  was our Singles Awareness Weekend.    Through the messages shared through Dennis Crabbe, as well as the music by Aletha on Friday, and Violin Praise on Sabbath afternoon, God definitely blessed us all.   So many answers to prayer and the Holy Spirit's presence was vividly with us throughout our time together.   We missed those of you who couldn't make it, and enjoyed making new friends among those who were able to join us.    Photos below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Christmas Party, December 9, 2018.    Time to remember Christ and all He has done for us.   He has given us good food, desire and opportunities for fellowship, good friends and opportunities to spend time with them and places to meet new friends, laughter, joy, peace, hope, and love.   Thank you to Doris Smith for these photos.

Bennington Lake, May 26, 2018 - God gave us a beautiful day for the walk around the lake.   Some went all around, while others chose to moisy around on the west side of the lake.  Afterwards we went to Doris' house for supper followed by a short vespers.   In Scripture we learn of individuals who are unmarried yet devoted to God.   Lydia, a successful and satisfied business woman,  a witness to others, and after Paul and Silas were released from prison they met with other believers in her home.   Anna, graced by the Spirit of God to be a prophetess for Israel, became widowed after 7 years of marriage, then devoted the remainder of her life to serving the Lord and lived to be at least 84 years of age.    She witnessed the presentation of the infant Jesus at the temple and praised God and proclaimed to all that He was the long-awaited Messiah.   John the Baptist had a calling from God to prepare the way for the coming Messiah.   He calls a nation to repentance, stands against evil kings, and dies a martyr's death.   Most importantly we have Jesus who came and lived as an example for us for our daily living.   He was tempted as we are if not more so as in the wilderness.   He lived the life of an unmarried individual yet He also blessed marriages - an example to us that both are equally good.   May our focus be on Christ as we strive to learn what His purpose is for our lives.   May we strive always to be like Jesus!
