          Memory Verse
          "Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children, 
           and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself

            - Ephesians 5:1-2

          Thought For the Week
           What will I do this week to reflect my efforts to be 
           an imitator of Christ positioned to build up others as 
           the Holy Spirit builds me up?
