THIS WEEK Wednesday, August 9th – 6:30 pm - Bible Study and Prayer Time – “The prevailing idea seems to be, that I come to God and ask Him for something that I want, and that I expect Him to give me that which I have asked. But this is a most dishonouring and degrading conception. The popular belief reduces God to a servant, our servant: doing our bidding, performing our pleasure, granting our desires. No, prayer is a coming to God, telling Him my need, committing my way unto the Lord, and leaving Him to deal with it as seemeth Him best.." ---- A.W. Pink Sunday, August 13th – Jon Rust will be with us. Jon and his wife Marilyn are missionaries serving in Portugal. New Church Officers: Deacons – Ed Benak, Richard Friske, and Jim Tollefson. Church Clerk – Karen Haspas Treasurer/Bookkeeper – Ed and Lodena Benak
