Praying for each other is important to us. Spoken and un-spoken prayer requests can be made by calling the church office ( 724-843-0862, or sending an e-mail to email@example.com ). If no answer at the church, please call Joann Castor or Jim and Esther Miller. Special thanks for your help in keeping us in touch with the concerns of our church family. Let us continue to lift one another up in a spirit of prayer.

“To walk in darkness means that you’re walking with unsure footing, and there isn’t a firm foundation to stand on.
In spite of adversity, the psalmist David, felt assured that God would give him prosperity, as though his lamp burned constantly in his dwelling.
Whenever David felt discouraged, he took his eyes off of himself, and he remembered his God.” ~ Minister Jeanie Shepard

You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. ~Psalm 18:28

“Venture into God’s pledge to carry things for us.
Knowing God with a sense of authentic personal reality, is not merely a matter of study.
It is a matter of walking with him through fire and not being burned.
It is a matter of not being crushed under a load because he carries it for you at your side.” ~John Piper

“Have you ever been in a position in your life, when you just couldn’t figure out what was happening? It’s that place where you just can’t put your finger on what was going on? It’s a time when you just don’t understand what God is doing. Well, if you haven’t been there yet, hold on, because at some point in your life, you’ll get there. But for some of you who are there right now….let’s talk about it.
No doubt, this is a tough place to be. Sometimes it’s a dry place or a place of uncertainty. Other times it’s a scary place. And sometimes it’s a place of simply…waiting. Yet, wherever the place you find yourself, the key is knowing that God IS with you…even when you don’t understand what He is doing. He’s just working things out behind the scenes.
You might not be able to see it or feel it. It may even frustrate or anger you, because you just can’t figure Him out like in the story of Job (in the Bible). But guess what? Whatever it is, it’s going to work out for your good in the end as Romans 8:28 says. Even if it doesn’t look that way in the beginning…or the middle. Just trust Him.” ~ Inside Out with Courtnaye

I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry. ~Psalm 40:1
