  There will not be a Senior Moment this week as our Pastor HB is in the hospital.  He was receiving new type of chemo and it has been very hard on his system.
Please pray for HB and Beverley that they will be back with us soon.

Matthew 6: 25, 33 & 34:  Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Catherine Martin_ Pastor of Women_s Ministries
         You are invited to join Friendship 
     Women for Bible study and        
     fellowship. Our goal is "to know Christ 
     and make Him known."
       But more than that, I count everything as loss         
       compared to the priceless privilege and supreme    
       advantage of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord [and of 
       growing more deeply and thoroughly acquainted with                Him-a joy unequaled].  Philippians 3:8 AMP        
        Catherine Martin                                                                                                                       
Pastor of Women's Ministries        

You are invited to join Friendship Women Bible Study beginning in October 2018. We will study God's Word, meet together for worship, inspirational messages, and times of fellowship and discussion. Make this the year that you draw near to God, grow in your relationship with Him, meet other women and make new friends.

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
2 Peter 3:18 NIV
