Today’s Scripture Reading: 1 Peter 1:1-21

Today’s Message: Genesis 24 “Search for the Bride”

Tonight: No study at Morton, but all are invited to attend evening services at Calvary Chapel Central Maine to hear LTG (Ret) Jerry Boykin  (more information in the announcements)

Thursday Night:
Jeremiah 11 & 12

LTG (Ret) Jerry Boykin:   Who was one of the original members of the U.S. Army's Delta Force, will be at Calvary Chapel in Orrington this evening at 6 p.m., sharing with the body.

Trained to Serve Discipleship Training: Continues Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Morton, with Pastor Dave teaching on Holiness. 

Evangelism Opportunity: At the Piscataquis County Fair August 27 - 30 by teaming up with the Abbot Church at their booth.  Please see Michelle if you are interested.

Men’s Prayer Breakfast: 7 a.m. on Saturday, August 29, at Morton.  Please invite someone, and bring a breakfast item to share.

Food Cupboard:
If anyone has any extra veggies in their gardens and wants to bless others, the food cupboard for the Dover-Foxcroft area is at the old Town Office building on East Main Street.  The food can be dropped off Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon for distribution on Thursday.  Just leave your donation inside the front entrance of the building if no one is there.  Distribution occurs every Thursday.

Troop Packages:
There is a donation box on the back table with a list of items needed by our troops.  We collect these items and send out packages on a quarterly basis.  If you have any questions, please see Tracy or Nan Redmond.

Ride Ministry:
We are now offering a ride ministry for church services for those with no vehicle, or for those experiencing vehicle troubles.  If you or someone you know would benefit from this, please see Kevin Bowden.

Missions: Our goals and ambitions for ministry in a foreign land seem lofty and beyond our ability.  Perhaps this is the posture God wants of us; we’ll at least know for sure that whatever progress occurs follows His might and accrues to His glory.

The question about future ministry still hovers over us.  But this much is clear:

the Bible commands us to go,
the field hopes we will come,
the figures show us the need,
the Spirit promises us the strength,
the Judgment means we must go.

An eternity will record our reply.
