Wed. Prayer Meeting @6:30pm. Bible Study: Psalm 139- This week we will be continuing our topic of do not be afraid, and looking at "Do not be afraid of how you will die". â€ś It is not so terrible to those who have been thinking seriously on it as it is to others who have never done this. No wonder many are terrified or stupefied at death, since they never learned the lesson of dying before it came on them.â€ť James Durham (1622-1658)

Wed. Prayer Meeting @ 6:30pm. Bible Study: Fear. â€ś fear is evil, if it begets the use of evil meansâ€”either to preserve or acquire that which is good, or to avoid evil. This is true if we fear man more than God and, in neglecting both the fear of God and obedience toward His commandments, we seek to get man on our side in sinful ways. We then give no heed as to whether we displease God; as long as we can please men in order that they will do us no evil, but good. (Mat. 10:28)â€ť Wilhelmus A'Brakel (1635-1711)

Jonathan Edwards (1746)
