Keith Chanley, Pastor rather with the outreached arms of a real human body encasing a beating but breaking heart. Read John 3:16. Through Jesus, God com- municated His extravagant and sacrificial love for us. John goes on, "We love because he first loved us" (I John 4:19). When we believe we're loved, we love back. God's real love makes it possible for us to love God and oth- ers with all our hearts. Josh Sanders, Pastor Sherry Julian, Reporter the business of life. These things can easily choke out the Life of God in us. But praise God, "But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things will be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33). What things will be add- ed? God's order back into our lives—a peace that pass- es all understanding—He is in control. Facebook: White River Chapel UMC, Jeff Pinney.

If you can't make it to church on Sunday, check out our live stream on Pe- tersburg Free Methodist Church Facebook page. Peace and joy in the Lord. Mark Schlechty, Pastor PETERSBURG CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE 118 West Pike Ave. Church 812-354-8851 Sunday school at 9:30 a.m.; morning worship and children's church at 10 :30 a.m.; children's and teen ser- vice at 6 p.m.; evening wor- ship at 6 p.m. and Wednes- day prayer service at 6 p.m. The world thinks that love seems to only be given if you agree with me 100 percent or only if you do exactly what I want. This is not how the church should operate. Ac- cording to Hebrews 13:1-8, we are told how the Chris- tian and the body of believ- ers should act toward each other, and those around us. Let us remember that Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever (verse 8). Upcoming activities and services • No Wednesday service tonight, August 14. • Children's mission les- son and meal to follow on Sunday, August 25, during and following the morning service.

We would love to have you be a part of our church family. David Warren, Pastor Jeannine Smith, Reporter HOUSE OF MERCY CHURCH Corner of East and Porter Winslow Pastor 812-789-5229 A Church with open arms and a loving heart. Sunday morning servic- es at 10 :15 a.m.; Praise and worship at 10 :30 a.m.; Minis- tering of the Word and Sun- day school classes at 11 a.m. Many today do not be- lieve in prophets, but the Word says Jesus gave to the church prophets. Many to- day here a prophetic word but turn a deaf ear to the spoken words and count it as idle words. As you read the Word, Jesus speaks of things to happen in the last days. The prophets speak words that line up with God's Word, so you need an ear to hear what the Spirit has to say and be prepared to walk in obedience to the words. Be blessed in Jesus' name. Pray for those in hospitals, nursing homes, your neigh- bors, any that are sick and in bondage, and also remem- ber in prayer our President, government and Jerusalem. OAKLAND CITY FIRST PENTECOST Hwy. 64 East Sunday morning service 9:30 a.m. with children's Sunday school during the ministry of the Word; Sun- day and Wednesday evening services at 6 p.m.; Recovery Road, every Saturday at 4 p.m. in the fellowship hall.

Ron Vickers, Pastor Elaine Young, Reporter, 812-749 -1122 (leave a mes- sage). I pray that many of God's children realize it is time for revival in our lives and in our churches. May reviv- al fire begin to burn in our churches again and may the harvest come in. In God's Service. George Bruce, Pastor OTWELL WESLEYAN CHURCH 2277 N. Mechanics Street Otwell Pastor 812-354-3028 Sunday school 9:30 a.m.; morning worship 10 :30 a.m.; evening worship service 6:30 p.m. Nursery available. Tuesday morning women's Bible study at the fellowship hall 10 a.m. Continue to pray for Roy and Margie and for all that are in need of God healing power. Hearing from God When we call upon God, it's often when we're wor- ried, anxious or over- whelmed. We look for his voice for guidance when we need something. The good news is that God is always wanting to hear from us and speak to us. God is constantly speak- ing to people. But too of- ten, they miss out on hear- ing God's messages because they seek His guidance only occasionally—usually when they're going through a cri- sis or facing a major deci- sion. Then, with a dire need to hear from God, people become confused and frus- trated when they don't clear- ly hear what they should do. They start to wonder how to hear from God and why they aren't. It doesn't have to be that way. God wants everyone to hear His messages clear- ly, and it's possible to do so. The key is to forget about formulas and gimmicks for hearing from God, and to focus instead on developing the kind of relationship with God that will empower you to hear God speaking regu- larly. The closer you get to God, the more you can en- joy ongoing conversations with Him, both listening and hearing from Him, and the more God will use those con- versations to transform you into the person He wants you to become. "Listen for God's voice in everything you do, every- where you go; he's the one who will keep you on track" (Proverbs 3:6). We invite all of you to come and worship with us.
