Every day we get many phone calls which we have the option to answer or ignore. Likewise, our culture sends us hundreds of godless messages every day we have the option to answer or ignore. The Bible calls these messages "foolishness". But God also sends us practical messages every day showing us how we are to live. These messages from God the Bible calls "wisdom". When wisdom calls, do we answer or ignore? This summer we are studying the book of Proverbs, written mostly by Solomon under God's inspiration. God honored Solomon's request and blessed him with inextraordinary wisdom; to the extent that he is known as the wisest man who ever lived. Come join us each Sunday this summer as we sit under the instruction of Solomon and learn how to respond when wisdom calls!

Proverbs: Wisdom Calls
In keeping with the tradition of Solomon, you are encouraged to read through and mediate on the book of Proverbs this summer as a family. Ask God for creativity in helping you pass down His wisdom to your children. Keep it simple. Make it practical. Ask lots of applicational questions. And see what God can do as you and your family seeks to respond to the call of wise living.
A Call to Prayer
Our church leaders see the need to call our church family to times of prayer. So we are setting aside six Wednesday nights to come together to pray. We began on June 18 at 7:00 p.m. at the Howe's. As we pray, so goes the battle! Hope you can join us.
Teen Challenge Service Project
You are invited to join us Saturday, Aug. 2, from 8:30-3:00 to travel to Colfax to serve at Teen Challenge. We will meet at the church at 8:30 and carpool to Colfax.
