Standing Tall

Ever feel like you’re not… enough? Not good enough, experienced enough, smart enough, attractive enough, etc.?

You wouldn’t be the first to feel that way.  Many folks in scripture – especially the prophets – didn’t think they were worthy of their calling, as we’ll hear in Jeremiah 1:4-10 during worship this Sunday.  But, God not only sees us as we are, God sees us for what we can be.  Case in point: the story of a woman who had been bent over – unable to stand for 18 years – in Luke 13:10-16.  To others, she was someone to be avoided.  To Jesus, she was a child of God. He wanted her to stand tall!

We’ll also get the chance to commission three Young Adult Volunteers as a part of our service.  This year’s group of YAVs – Sarah Bleile, Nate Burt, and Davis Hoyt – have heard the call to spend a year of service in New Orleans.  Join us as we give them a formal send-off for their service.

Wherever you find yourself headed in life, you’re invited to join us Sunday to grow taller together in faith.

In Christ,

Pastor Ben

Back to School Prayer – You’re invited to join us at Salem Tabernacle (7 Delavan Ave) next Thursday, 8/29 at 7:30pm for a time of prayer for students and teachers as they prepare to return to school. Pastor Ben will be joining Pastor Bill from Salem at the Lord’s Table.
