T H I S W E E K Wednesday, July 10th – Bible Study and Prayer Time – 6:30 pm – “Every growth of spiritual life, from the first tender shoot until now, has been the work of the Holy Spirit . . . The only way to more life is the Holy Spirit. You will not even know that you want more unless He works in you to desire it . . . The Spirit of God must come and make the letter alive, transfer it to your heart, set it on fire, and make it burn within you, or else its divine force and majesty will be hid from your eyes . . . Prayer is the creation of the Holy Spirit. We cannot do without prayer, and we cannot pray without the Holy Spirit.” --- Charles Spurgeon The offering last week was $7,276.29: Building Fund - $30.00; Deacon’s Fund - $50.00; and General Fund - $7,196.29.

How many would be able to walk in the parade and pass out pencils? “Independence is something most people cherish. Not that we feel it’s wrong to help each other, but our self-esteem can sink if we feel overly reliant on others. There is an independence, though, that we might not find if we’re too convinced of our self-sufficiency. It’s the unparalleled spiritual freedom of depending fully on God.” --- True Independence: Dependence on God
