Living by Faith Not By Sight – Third Sunday after Pentecost – 6/13/21

Living By Faith Not by Sight

Were you ever been caught in a predicament in which there were no immediate solutions?  Feeling trapped…or stuck?  Join Pastor Jack this Sunday for Part One of a Seven-Part Sermon Series, “The Challenge to Believe”.  Pastor will share BIblical insights using the cornerstone verse “We walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).  Inspirational, true stories will be shared…don’t miss it!

CHURCH CLEANUP DAY for Sat. 6/12 has been cancelled.

EX-GIANT LEE ROUSON – will be the special guest speaker at a Sat., June 12 rally entitled, “Who Are You Really?; a Champion’s Vision” discussing , drugs, anger, racism and identity crisis.  The rally will be held from 2 – 3 p.m. at the Sussex County Mall, Harbor Freight Store parking lot at 15 Hampton House Rd., Newton. Lee recently worked as manager for the mentoring and leadership program in the Mt. Olive Twp. School District. Bring a chair and your questions for the pro football player with a message of Hope.

Please have these documents available for use during the meeting. After checking your spam or promotional in-boxes, call the church office if you did not receive the email. We need you!
