Participating in a funeral this week reminded me again of the hope that we have for the next life! The funeral of Kelly Rich was a wonderful celebration of her life and faith, and some of her family members and closest friends participated in the tribute of her life!  Truly she had “fought a good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith.” (2 Tim 4:7)

As we come to the last lines of the Apostles’ Creed, we learn about “the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting” which ends the creed on a high note! 

We have room for a single male to go on the Israel trip this February 11-22, 2020.  If you are interested, a $500 deposit will be due asap to claim the spot.  Please contact Rachel Pyle for more details.

Family Life Center worshippers: please make plans now to join us in the Worship Center or The Commons the weekend of July 14th.  The gym floor is being resurfaced so we are unable to hold services in the FLC for what should be just one weekend.  Thank you for your flexibility during this project!

We'll be going to a TinCaps game on August 18th. Come enjoy fun and fellowship in the Huntington University Picnic Pavilion;  all are welcome. Tickets will be available in July.

We finish the APOSTLES’ CREED series by looking at the last two lines, “ the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting”.  We will also study the last word, AMEN, and be reminded why we use it.

1Cor. 15:19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.

1Cor. 15:37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body.

1Cor. 15: 23 But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. . . . 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.

Rev. 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’  or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

1John 2:17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

Neh. 8:6 Ezra praised the LORD, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, “Amen! Amen!” Then they bowed down and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground.
