Being known as a "wise guy" is usually not a compliment. The term has little to do with actual wisdom. And if you're name is Larry, Moe, or Curly, it probably means you'll soon get konked on the head!
The bible has a lot to say about actual wisdom. The key component to being wise is all about acting in a wise way. King Solomon wrote 3000 proverbs and was known as the wisest man who ever lived. But he failed to act in a wise way and turned his back on God as he grew older.
This Sunday, March 24th, we'll be talking about real wisdom and how to live it out in our lives. I hope you'll be able to join us. (Remember that our new Sunday schedule begins at 9:45 with Sunday School for all ages followed by our Worship Celebration starting at 10:30)
Congregational Meeting this Sunday
Following our Worship Celebration, we will have a special meeting for church members to address our river bank erosion problem. Please plan on staying and voting on this funding issue. You can read more about the circumstances and what we will be voting on by reading this letter from the Church Council.
Mission Trip Fund Raiser
On April 28th to May 4th, a group of men from our congregation will be traveling down to Rosarito, Mexico with Paul Eklund. During the week, they will be working on an addition to a Christian orphanage which is seeking to expand so that they can take in 40 additional children. There are currently hundreds of abandoned children in the Tijuana area who are desperate. While this expansion will not fix the problem, it will make a difference for the children who will now have a living home.
On Sunday evening, April 14th, beginning at 5:00 pm, we will host a fund raising dinner for this mission trip. Although the men going will be paying for their own trip, there is a need to raise money for the needed building supplies. The estimated need is $7000.
Please plan on joining us for a delicious Mexican meal as well as a presentation about the orphanage and the project. While we're not asking for a set amount in the form of tickets, we are asking that you prayerfully come with a generous heart. Thank you in advance for your participation in this mission through your prayers and financial gifts!
