The thrust of the sermon was to look forward to our Heavenly Home. In this scripture the Israelites were once again able to celebrate the Passover, which they had not been able to do for 40 years, having been held in the wilderness. In order to walk with God, the Israelites had certain things to do. We, too, have guidelines to enable us to walk with God.

Wanda Warner and Keri Hartman served cake, punch, mints and nuts from the reception table.

I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top. One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been. "Character is not made in a crisis - it is only exhibited."

Brynlee Manning sat and listened attentively during the Children's Church part of Sunday morning ser- vice at the Christian Church as Richard Cox talked about asking for directions from Jesus in our lives. Richard's mes- sage for the adults was entitled "Abraham: A Faith Filled Hero." His selected scripture reading was Genesis 22-1-14. This portion of scripture tells about Abraham following God's com- mand to take Isaac into the wilderness to become a sacrifice. We know from reading this portion of scripture that God, because of Abraham' s obedience, did not have him sacrifice Isaac, but provided a ram for that purpose. Abraham's faith is credited to him as righteousness. Like the Marine Corps motto, God is looking for a few good men and women to have faith and to obey. Without faith it is impossible to come to God. God calls his people to live by faith which is life changing. God is trustworthy; He will take care of the things that we give over to Him. It is easy to say that we believe, but sometimes it is hard to prove it. Abraham is the role model for faith. We all have choices to make when it comes to faith and our faith will be tested. God looking for a faith that influences those choices in our life. Following the service, Rosie Campbell provided cookies, cake,juice and coffee to celebrate the June birth- days.
