They deserve a BREAK!

From Sunday, June 4th, volunteers from the Children’s and Nursery Ministries (teachers, assistants and junior leaders) are on a much needed break. That means there will be no Children’s Church or Nursery care during this time. Each child will receive a resource that they can work on during church service. Both Children’s Church and Nursery care will resume on July 9th. Contact Angie McManus with any questions.

Have you thanked our volunteers for all they do to care for our children?

Pride is much more difficult to discern than any other corruption because, by nature, pride is a person having too high a thought of himself. Is it any surprise, then, that a person who has too high a thought of himself is unaware of it? He thinks the opinion he has of himself has just grounds and therefore is not too high. As a result, there is no other matter in which the heart is more deceitful and unsearchable. The very nature of it is to work self-confidence and drive away any suspicion of evil respecting itself. 

Another pattern of spiritually of proud people is to behave in ways that make them the focus of others. It is natural for a person under the influence of pride to take all the respect that is paid to him. If others show a disposition to submit to him and yield in deference to him, he is open to it and freely receives it. In fact, they come to expect such treatment and to form an ill opinion of those who do not give them what they feel they deserve.
