“Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” ~Galatians 6:9

Welcome to worship this morning.  This is Spring Break week for many of our students, and some in our church family are out of town on a mini-vacation.  Quite a few are on spring break mission trips around the world, and several of our couples (including Sarah and me) are attending a Marriage Retreat in Tennessee this weekend!  Thank you for being here today.

The grocery store is an overwhelming place.  The sheer number of decisions that have to be made is mind boggling.  Do you want that in diet, organic, low fat, generic, without salt, heat-and-serve, family pack or single serve?  And that’s just breakfast!

Choosing between what is good and what is best is a very important thing in life.  Each time we say Yes to one thing, we also say No to something else.  Unfortunately we often say No to the very things we should be saying Yes to.  We say Yes to good things like working overtime but the No means we don’t spend time with our families.  We say Yes to entertainment and No to getting healthy rest.  One of the most important things for us to say Yes to is regularly worshiping God and being under the teaching of His word.

The Art of Conversational Evangelism with Bill Babione and the Avenue Kids’ Choir continues this evening at 6:00.  Also, please don’t forget to turn in your nominations for new Deacons before March 22nd.  The guidelines you should follow are in our constitution (which is on our church website under the About Us tab in the What We Believe section).

My special thanks to Tim Abel who is preaching for us this morning; I know the Lord will encourage us through his ministry.  We love you.  You are constantly in my heart and my prayers.
