You can't learn to walk without taking that first step.
When we delightfully watch a small child take their first step, it is most often accompanied by cheers, clapped hands, and sometimes a scream of joy that startles the child and they sit or fall down. We can't help ourselves when we witness the victory of their first step.
But that's not the end of it. Next, two or three steps are taken and our smiles and encouragement urge the child on. Before we know it, that first step leads to three or four, then, surprisingly, they are walking across the room.
We, the children of God, are no different when we learn what Jesus wants us to do in obedience to His Word. We have to take that first step in faith, trusting that with each additional step we will grow in strength and confidence that He will continue to lead us forward.
Please join us this Sunday at the church at 9:30 or 11:00 AM or online at 9:30 AM on Facebook Live to worship with us and learn more about taking these steps of faith.
Our Children's Ministry is during the 11:00 AM service only. See you Sunday!

Proud Winner of the Chili Cook-Off
This past Sunday's Chili Cook-Off was a big hit with 10 contestants vying for 1st place and the "Hot Stuff" bragging rights.
Be sure to congratulate Mike Moeller and his wife Jody for their team effort, which brought about their win. Mike made the chili and Jody marketed and served it! Mike was especially happy to win on Sunday as he is preparing to enter another local chili contest and this win boosted his confidence for the next round.
Our condolences go out to Steven (our Youth Ministry Leader) who so badly wanted to win the "Hot Stuff" title. Maybe next year, Steven.
Check out the framed pictures on the wall at the church with the past two Chili Cook-Off winners.

Thank you, God, for providing a spiritual umbrella that covers me because I am a child of God. I know that whatever comes my way, I will be able to withstand the thunderstorms of life.
This umbrella covering precedes me into a room and it even provides peace and comfort to those who are close to me. May I never let go of my umbrella as I cling to, trust in, and rely upon You, God.
In Jesus' Name,
Cheryl Flores – Prayer Ministry Leader
