The Press-Dispatch Church Wednesday, September 11, 2019 C- 3 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.; Min- istering of the Word and Sunday school classes at 11 a.m. We read in the Bible that Jesus said that we have to forgive if someone has lied on us or done us wrong. For if we do not forgive, our heavenly Father can not for- give us. Forgiveness is not an option, it is a command- ment. Do not let unforgiveness keep you from your heaven- ly reward. Obey the Word. Remember our Presi- dent, government and Jeru- salem in your prayer time. Also pray for those in hos- pitals, nursing homes, your neighbors, any that are sick and in bondage. I pray that many of God's children realize it is time for revival in our lives and OTWELL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH P.O. Box 146, 10041E.

It is moving into to- morrow ahead of time." This wise counsel is attributed to Corrie ten Boom, a devout Christian whose family in Amsterdam sheltered some 800 Jewish people from Na- zis during World War II, suf- fering imprisonment as a re- sult. Her father and sister 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
