Hi Parkside Family.
Just this morning I was reminded of my need to invite God into my world through prayer. To give God the opportunity to show up with the gifts of joy, patience, peace, comfort, and resilience. The kind of gifts that only He can provide. When we pray, doubt and fear still come, but they don't stay long. Regret and guilt may land on our kitchen table, but through prayer, Christ wipes them away, replacing them with joy and hope that comes from being a child of God.
What about you, do you desire to pray more? Pray better? Pray stronger? Pray with more faith, fire and fervency? Remember, prayer is not reserved for Sunday church or Wednesday night prayer meetings. Prayer is not a privilege for pastors and Sunday School teachers. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. God is waiting for you to invite him into your doubts, your fears, your frustrations. He wants to walk with you through the valleys and, when needed, carry you!
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
On behalf of Kaye Graves and family, I want to invite you to join us this Saturday, August 8th at 10:30am, as we gather together in our church parking lot, to remember and celebrate the life of Dick Graves.
Due to the current restrictions on indoor gatherings, the service will be held in our church parking lot. The church will provide tent shading and socially-distanced seating. Also per state guidelines, those in attendance will be required to wear a face mask.
Please join us for this special time of remembering the life God gave to Dick and the love and laughter he shared with Kaye, their family and those who knew him.
Also, don't forget to join us this Sunday at 10:30am, as we continue in our series titled, Seven Letters to Seven Churches. This week, we will be diving into the church at Sardis. This letter can be found in Revelation 3:1-6. Please take some time over the next few days to read this important letter and be praying for Pastor Roger as he speaks God's Word to us this Sunday.
Following the service, consider joining us for our Parkside "after-church" zoom gathering that begins at 11:00am
