C-2 Church Wednesday, Februar y 12, 2020 The Press-Dispatch Continued from page 1 Continued on page 3 Continued in next column Continued in next column "You are purrfect! I'm not kitten you! This week, PAWS is fea- turing a loving young kit- ten named Sadie, who wants to share her Valen- tine's Day with you, and promises to give lots of hugs and kisses. She is an energetic little feline with delightful black and white markings that gives her a showy appearance. Her long white whiskers also add an eccentric bonus to this pretty little kitten. To make Sadie your Val- entine sweetheart, call PAWS at 812-354-9894. PAWS WEEK PAWS WEEK Pet of the SADIE Baptist Christian ence? Simply this: the closer we are to Christ, the farther we are from Satan. The Bible says: "Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" ( James 7-8). Is the devil farther from you to- day than he was a week ago? If not, why? If at any time you don't have a church to attend, feel free to join us for services. I am sure you will leave be blessed. Jerry "Tuffy" Blackwell, Pastor Sharon Kendall, Reporter ARTHUR G.B. CHURCH 5670 S. St. Rd. 61 Winslow 812-582-0354 Sunday school 9:30 a.m.; morning worship and chil- dren's church 10 :30 a.m.; Sunday evening Bible study at 6 p.m.; Business meeting third Sunday of the month, following morn- ing worship. We are planning a Val- entine's Day carry-in on Sunday, Feb. 16, following morning worship. Bring an Italian dish or dessert and join the fellowship. "With men it is impos- sible, but not with God" (Mark 10 :27). In the natural world, you may not be able to accom- plish your plans and goals, but when you step into the realm of the supernatu- ral, God adds His "super" to your "natural" and what seems impossible becomes possible. We are praying for those who are in need of God's healing and peace, and those who have lost loved ones. Remember to cast your cares on Him for He cares for you. We invite you to worship with us.

It's amazing how God is using this study for great applica- tion and discussion. Esther became queen in 479 B.C., so scholars suggest the book was written around 470 B.C., but remarkably we have applied the book of Esther to modern day and FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH 8th and Poplar Street Petersburg 812-354-6582 Welcome to our church family Sunday activities: 9 a.m. Praise Band practice; 9:30 a.m. Sunday school for two years old to adult; and 10 :30 a.m. Sunday wor- ship.

Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 Regular services: Sunday school 9:30 a.m. and worship service at 10 :30 a.m. "This last week I preached on prayer. I don't pretend to be an expert in prayer, in fact, I tend to be jealous of some people's prayer lives. Have you ever sat and lis- tened to someone pray? And it just seems like every prayer they pray is so re- fined and eloquent, and you just know that's a prayer God would rather listen to. The point is, the best part about prayer is you don't have to be a pro at prayer to pray. The other best part about prayer is you can simply just pray. That's right, God wants to hear from you, and if you want to pray, all you have to do is start praying. And I be- lieve when you start praying, life gets a little brighter. Do you know the words to the old song? "Oh what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer." Don't waste away life, holding onto that which you can relinquish to God in prayer." DJ Bryant, Pastor VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E. State Rd. 56 Sunday morning wor- ship and the Lord's supper at 9:30 a.m.; Bible school at 10 :30 a.m.; evening wor- ship at 6:30 p.m.; Kingdom Builders meeting, Monday, Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Parkview Christian Church, Plainville. You are welcome to take part in these servic- es. Repentance "If there is no sorrow for sin, there is no joy for salva- tion." "It may not be easy to re- pent of sin, but nobody can be saved without it." Remember Jesus said, "But except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" (Luke 13:5b). And on the Day of Pentecost, "Then Pe- ter said to them, 'Repent and be baptized, everyone of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit'" (Acts 2:38).

"Let Your [steadfast] lov- ingkindness, O Lord, be up- on us, in proportion as we have hoped in You," is a re- quest in Psalm 33:22 to God that proposes a condition. The condition only asks for as much from God as we put in hope or reliance on Him. If we don't rely on Him much, we won't get as much. I'm certainly glad that God pours out His lovingkind- ness on a much grand- er scale than our requests or our reliance could ever measure. We must learn to accept all of His love (espe- cially the tough parts), and look for His hand in all of our provision, because it is there. Meanwhile, we should hope and trust only in the Lord, no matter what we do or don't see, at 100 percent. Are we willing to hope to our fullest on our Lord, to fulfill our condition of proportion, based on all He has given us?

Feb. 21—Bible study at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 27-March 1—Youth Convention with Evangelist Rev. Joey Pyle. "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: con- tinue ye in my love" ( John 15:9). I have heard it passeth knowledge, I believe what God hath said; But the test is, do I prove it as my dai- ly path I tread? Is it mere- ly that I think it, and accept what others say? Does it fill my heart with singing? Is it in me day by day? What is knowledge worth that's bur- ied like a jewel in the earth? If we know God's love, our knowledge must live in us, giving birth to a love that feels for others, looks upon them from God's side. Lord, keep me in that knowledge; let me in Thy love abide.
