God is always in charge!
“This is but the beginning of the birth pangs.” – Mark 13:8.
Jesus’s friends are impressed with the majesty of the Temple in Jerusalem. But he warns them not to be dazzled by the physical world. Change is coming!
We, too, might be impressed. Or perhaps depressed. What are we to think and do when our world seems to be falling apart? It’s all too human to look to leaders claiming to be The One who will lead us. “Don’t be led astray,” Jesus warns his followers.
At PEACE, we welcome all those yearn for the world God promises! Together, we weather the world’s changes as we help each other cling to what is true and enduring.
Today’s Bible readings: Daniel 12:1-3; Psalm 16; Hebrews 10:11-25; Mark 13:1-8
Giving from PEACE

Adult Bible Study

Moses is so much like us… He whines. He thinks he’s not good enough. He wants proof. Can we learn to let God be in charge?

Our Teen Class focuses on our Faith Ancestors and what these flawed but faithful folks have to teach us.
