New Bible Study!!

“Half-Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

and Other Things the Bible Doesn’t Say.”

Half-truths are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways.

In this Bible study Adam Hamilton breaks down 5 common sayings using Scripture and story with practical applications.

These half-truths include:

  • Everything happens for a reason.
  • God helps those who help themselves.
  • God won’t give you more than you can handle.
  • God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
  • Love the sinner, hate the sin.

Everyone is welcome and all points of view are welcome. Please Join Us!

If you would like more information call Pastor Mark at 720-5464 or just stop by!

Join us for this engaging Bible study every Friday at 9:00 a.m. or on Sunday mornings during the 9:15 a.m. Sunday School hour. The study is meeting in the nursery and parents are invited to bring small children.

(There will be NO Bible Study on Friday, May 4, and Friday, May 11, due to prior scheduled events.  The next Friday meeting will be May 18.  The Sunday meetings will continue uninterrupted.)

Do One Thing!

Do 1 Thing seeks to ensure that everyone has access to information about risk and vulnerability, allowing them to make informed decisions; and access to resources that can help them become better disaster decision makers.

The Do 1 Thing focus for May is FOOD. The goal is: “Have an emergency food supply that will meet the needs of your household for three days without outside help.”

An emergency food supply doesn’t have to sit on a shelf, ready for disaster to strike (although it can). It can be part of the food you use every day. The key to a good food storage plan is to buy ahead of time. Replace items before they run out. Buy items when they are on sale. A large duffle bag or plastic tub with a lid makes a great storage place for an emergency food supply. Make sure your family, including pets, will have what they need when disaster strikes.

Choose “one” of the following things to do this month to become better prepared:

  1. Buy a three-day emergency food supply for your household.
  2. Take steps to make sure food in your refrigerator and freezer will stay safe.
  3. Make sure you can meet any special dietary needs in your household.

The mission of Do 1 Thing is to move individuals, families, businesses, and communities to prepare for all hazards and become disaster resilient.

Stay tuned for more information about these activities that will help us as individuals and families, as well as our congregation and the Waverly community.
