            HELPING HANDS - Do You Need Help?

We have a program here at the church called “Helping Hands.”
We want those in need of help; snow removal, raking leaves,
planting flowers, taking you for groceries etc. to sign up on the
sheet in the back of the sanctuary explaining what your needs
are. If you can be a “Helper” to help someone on the list please
let us know!

We are all here to help one another in times of need. Let’s all do
our part.
 Romans 12:6a “And since we have gifts that differ according to
    the grace given to us, let each exercise them accordingly.”

What you do with this invitation has eternal consequences.
How will you respond?

1. You may be among those who have no time to take the claims
of Jesus Christ seriously.

2. You may be among those who feel threatened by the claims of
Jesus Christ.

3. You may be among those who have never seriously considered
the claims of Jesus Christ.

How you respond to God’s invitation to His kingdom has eternal
consequences for your life.

      God loves you so much that God has done everything to
       make it possible for you to join the greatest celebration this
       world has ever known. John 3:16
      Don’t assume that just because you are part of a religious
       family or community of some sort, that you will have a place
       in the kingdom of heaven.
      Examine your life! II Peter 1:2-11; 3:9
      Don’t wait to respond to God’s invitation!
