Ephesians 2:12-13

When Things Seem Hopeless

I know that there are times in our lives when things seem hopeless. With the way things are with our economy, now may be one of those times.

Stock market down, loss of a job or maybe even loss of a home.

It can look hopeless. It can be a health issue, or a faltering marriage, problems with a child or a thousand other things, your world is caving

in on you

Let me tell you, there is always hope! Jesus is the Hope! He al- ways has been and always will be! “Nothing is impossible with God,” the Bible says.

God is for

us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31. Jesus is our blessed hope. So cheer up and look to a bright future!

Pastor Bob

and

you keep asking yourself, “Is there any hope?”

So don’t get down, discouraged, or depressed.

If

Lord thank you for encouraging us and bringing us through.

"Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance, the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith." Hebrews 12:1-2

Symphony of Praise DVD
No doubt you’ve wondered about the progress of “Symphony of Praise.” It’s
been a moving a target - but moving in a good direction. As the production
and editing has progressed, it seems we’ve raised our sights in respect to its
potential. This has resulted in more creative ideas and much more editing
time. Add to that a couple of unanticipated setbacks, the release is delayed
a month or so. We thank you for your patience but believe that it will be
well worth the wait. We are looking now at a release in early June. Again,
thanks so much for your involvement in “Symphony of Praise.” It will be an
ongoing asset to our mission efforts. Jerry Nelson
