These are the days of Ezekiel; the dry bones becoming as flesh; And these are the days of Your servant David, Rebuilding a temple of praise; And these are the days of the harvest, The fields are as white in the world, and as we are laborers in Your vineyard, declaring the Word of the Lord.

New Bible Study Based on Matthew 22:39 Begins June 28 36 “Teacher,   which   is   the   greatest   commandment   in   the   Law?” 37 Jesus   replied:   “‘Love   the   Lord   your   God with    all    your    heart    and    with    all    your    soul    and    with    all    your    mind.’     38 This    is    the    first    and    greatest commandment. 39 And    the    second    is    like    it:    ‘Love    your    neighbor    as    yourself.’     40 All    the    Law    and    the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:36-40 What would happen if we really learned to love our neighbors as ourselves? We   will   find   out   in   The   Art   of   Neighboring ,   a   new   Wednesday   night   Bible   study   that   begins   June   28   at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Once   upon   a   time,   people   knew   their   neighbors.   They   talked   to   them,   had   cook-outs   with   them,   and went   to   church   with   them.   In   our   time   of   unprecedented   mobility   and   increasingly   busy   lives,   it's   hard   to make   lasting   connections   with   those   who   live   right   outside   our   front   door.   We   may   have   hundreds   of Facebook "friends , " but we often don't even know the full name of the person who lives right next door. This   unique   and   inspiring   study   asks   the   question:   What   is   the   most   loving   thing   I   can   do   for   the   people who   live   on   my   street   or   in   my   apartment   building?   Through   compelling   true   stories   of   lives   impacted, we will learn how to create genuine friendships with the people who live in closest proximity to us. Remember   to   bring   your   bag   supper   if   you   so   desire.    The   study   will   run   for   about   six   weeks   (or   longer   if necessary.) For more information, please call Betsy Annese at 336-416-0447. Opportunities for the Week Tuesday, June 20  11:30 AM Senior and Friends Lunch at Chili’s 100 S.

God’s Word Matthew 9:35-10:8 35 Jesus    was    going    through    all    the    cities    and    villages,    teaching    in    their synagogues   and   proclaiming   the   gospel   of   the   kingdom,   and   healing   every kind    of    disease    and    every    kind    of    sickness. 36 Seeing    the    people,    He    felt compassion   for   them,   because   they   were   distressed   and   dispirited   like   sheep without   a   shepherd. 37 Then   He   said   to   His   disciples,   “The   harvest   is   plentiful, but   the   workers   are   few. 38 Therefore   beseech   the   Lord   of   the   harvest   to   send out workers into His harvest.” 10 1 Jesus    summoned    His    twelve    disciples    and    gave    them    authority    over unclean   spirits,   to   cast   them   out,   and   to   heal   every   kind   of   disease   and   every kind   of   sickness. 2 Now   the   names   of   the   twelve   apostles   are   these:   The   first, Simon,   who   is   called   Peter,   and   Andrew   his   brother;   and   James   the   son   of Zebedee,    and    John    his    brother; 3 Philip    and    Bartholomew;    Thomas    and Matthew   the   tax   collector;   James   the   son   of   Alphaeus,   and   Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the   Zealot,   and   Judas   Iscariot,   the   one   who   betrayed   Him. 5 These   twelve   Jesus sent   out   after   instructing   them:   “Do   not   go   in   the   way   of   the   Gentiles,   and   do not   enter   any   city   of   the   Samaritans; 6 but   rather   go   to   the   lost   sheep   of   the house   of   Israel. 7 And   as   you   go,   preach,   saying,   ‘The   kingdom   of   heaven   is   at hand.’ 8 Heal   the   sick,   raise   the   dead,   cleanse   the   lepers,   cast   out   demons. Freely you received, freely give.
