Hughes Memorial Weekly Update - Monday, September 11th Changing our Community with Real P.O.W.E.R.

Memory Verse
 "Then Peter came and said to him, "Lord, if another
  member of the church sins against me, how often
  should I forgive?  As many as seven times?  Jesus
    said to him, "Not seven times, but, I tell you,
  seventy-seven times."
  - Matthew 18:21-22

Thought For the Week
 God forgives us for a multitude of sins we commit
 against God.  Why do we struggle to forgive the
 meager sins committed against us by our neighbor? 
 Community Prayer 
  • Prayers for the family of Janice Gaskins and all of our members who are mourning the loss of a loved one.
  • Prayers for all children and youth as the new school year begins.

    Is Anybody Home?
    Pastor Paul will be calling you this summer to schedule a time to drop by and chit-chat for a few minutes. If you would prefer to meet at coffee house or a restaurant near you that's fine too! Let's grow closer to one another as we grow closer to God.
