Dear Church Family,
Last week’s message seemed to strike a chord with many as we looked at the story of the golden calf and considered the need for greater reverence in our lives and church. Yes, it is a sobering thought to consider that if we lack reverence, it suggests we are no different than those who worshipped before the golden calf. You can review the thought-provoking quote we concluded with last Sabbath by reading 5T 491-500 and the message can be reviewed by clicking here.
One of you shared the following quote with me this week and I thought I would share it with all of you here:
“True Reverence for God is inspired by a sense of His infinite greatness and a realization of His presence…. and as reverence is manifested in attitude and demeanor, the feeling that inspires it will be deepened.”

Thank you Dawn & Jerry for your faithful service! Also, Marta Wetmore has announced that she will be stepping down as Adventurer leader after doing a great job of leading our little ones for the last few years. Thank you Marta! The church board will work to fill these slots at their Monday board meeting.
Blessings as you prepare for the coming Sabbath!
In His Service,
