"Thus Samuel grew and the Lord was with him and let known of his words fail."

Young Samuel grew in physical stature, but much more apparent to those around him was his maturing spiritually. While sequestered away from many normal outside distractions, still other things sought out his attention. For most of us, we are bombarded in today's world with many things other than the Lord. Any number of the cares of the world seek to tear us away from the simplicity and purity of devotion to the Lord. While we are reminded by Peter: "but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen."   1 Peter 3:18

Opportunities

Today after Service - If you can, please stay for some food and fellowship right after service.

Black Friday Blues - Immediately after the holiday we celebrate as thanksgiving. Contrary though, is the fact that so many take on the additional stress of shopping, juggling bills and additional pressures of how to and why this or that. Don't get caught up and be in prayer for those around you during these stressful times where we've taken Jesus out of the season.

Prayer Points

River of Life Mission - As the volume of meals and ministry opportunities have ramped up at the River of Life Mission, please keep all the staff and guests, as well as the neighboring community, in prayer.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem - As the Middle East heats up, pray for the nation of Israel along with all of those in this region who have come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
