September’s Memory Verse:  
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”    II Timothy 2:15
With our focus this year of discipleship, this month’s memory verse is a great reminder of some great steps to growing in your walk with Christ.  #1 – Be diligent! Or in other words, be consistent, and conscientiousness in your journey to present yourself to God, ready to be used of Him. #2 – Be a Worker! There is no need to be ashamed of your calling when you are walking with Jesus! And #3 – Seek God’s Truth. Be a seeker of truth. Don’t just assume what you hear is what God’s Word says. Read the Word daily, study, and seek out what God is calling you to do for His Kingdom. Together, we will continue to grow in our walk with Christ, and reach our community with God’s Love!
WELCOME BACK!! Pastor Mark & Laurie are back from their sabbatical! We are so excited to have them back! We have been praying for Pastor Mark as he has been taking time for renewal, and seeking God’s direction for his life and the church, and we are looking forward to hearing him open the Word with us to help us walk with Jesus in a closer way!
