Humbly Pray and Seek
Watch a video message from Pastor Rick by visiting the following web page link and clicking on "May 15 Humbly Pray and Seek"
Since 1952, the first Thursday of May has been designated as the National Day of Prayer.
This year was mostly virtual gatherings across the country. When I think of national prayer, my thoughts, like many others, are drawn to God’s instructions to Solomon upon completion of the temple.
We find these instructions in 2 Chronicles 7:
11 When Solomon had finished the temple of the Lord and the royal palace, and had succeeded in carrying out all he had in mind to do in the temple of the Lord and in his own palace, 12 the Lord appeared to him at night and said: “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices. 13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
May you find time each day to humbly pray and seek the face of God.
May 31st - Tentative In-Person
We will continue online activities until at least May 31st.
Stay tuned as the pandemic situation may push the date into June.
We will honor graduates on Sunday, June 7. If we are meeting physically at the church we may have a pitch-in dinner, too.
