On this cold but partly cloudy Sunday, Pastor Michael Hodge continued his series in 1 Thessalonians. Over the past few weeks, we've gone through the verses and talked about the various aspects of being a Christian. Today, we go into a topic that definitely isn't popular, but absolutely a part of a true Christian's life: suffering. For Pastors, this can and does mean dealing with difficult situations and people. Of course, for other believers, this is true as well. But we must also be tested in our faith, and for some, that means to the point of death. We must be found to be in Christ Jesus, and suffering refines our character and brings us to the Lord on our knees, exactly where we need to be. Listen to the Pastor's challenging sermon this morning.
Finally, for special music, Amy Taylor played "Amazing Grace" on her flute.

And we hope you have a great week in Christ Jesus!
