Prides Creek Road Petersburg Sunday morning Bible classes 10 a.m.; morning worship 10:30 a.m. and evening worship at 6 p.m. Tony Sims, Elder Ross Williams, Elder Catholic tinue to meet each Sunday, while practicing the proper precautionary measures: social distancing between families, use of hand sanitiz- er, masks, washing hands, etc. and no welcoming of walking around, shaking hands and embracing each other. While we love to have special services for our chil- dren, there will not be chil- dren's church, or the chil- dren's message, for a few more weeks. However, we do plan to start Sunday school again on May 31. Most of our Sunday school rooms are smaller in size, so a few special ar- rangements will be made to allow distancing. Under- stand that this is a precau- tionary measure and hope- fully temporary. Also, we will be review- ing the calendar and mak- ing plans to resume our Wednesday study and ac- tivities soon. No date has been set yet, but stay tuned for the announcement. Like- wise, also note that Cross- roads is committed to our community and will engage in outreach to coincide with the governor's suggested stages of opening. Yes, we will have a community yard sale, baby shower and much more, but only when it is al- lowed for large groups to gather (as outlined in the re-opening press release).

Pray also for those who have passed away from this illness and for the entire world, especially the hungry, the lonely and iso- lated. Stay close to Jesus, stay away from the virus. Fr. Frank Renner, Pastor Rev. Mark Wade, Deacon FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH 1400 E. Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 Regular services: Sunday school 9:30 a.m. and worship service at 10 :30 a.m. It is not surprise at this point that we live in a polar- ized society. News anchors VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E. State Rd. 56 Sunday morning worship and the Lord's supper at 9:30 a.m. We will be meeting in accordance to social spac- ing and wearing face masks. Money Someone has said, "We can give without loving, but we can't love without giving." The Bible tells us, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begot- ten Son, that whosoever be- lieveth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" ( John 3:16). Because He lives. John Manges, Minister WINSLOW CHRISTIAN CHURCH Corner of Lafayette and Walnut Pastor 812-753-3539 Sunday school 9:30 a.m.; morning worship 10 :30 a.m.; We extend a warm welcome to everyone. Dr. Robert Asa, Minister do not shy away from argu- ing with political opponents. And we are even cultured at this point to argue with those we disagree with, rather than have a conversation with them. At the beginning of the pandemic, the disagree- ment came from how serious- ly to take this virus, so ma- ny fought over how we should respond. On the other hand, many are now arguing weath- er the country should reopen or not. The point remains we like to argue and disagree. But as a believer in Jesus, and a member of the church, we must be above the petty dis- agreements. If you are com- fortable returning to normal life, but your neighbor isn't, they aren't wrong, and nei- ther are you. Let me give you a little bit of spiritual encouragement; "Do nothing from selfish am- bition or conceit, but in humil- ity count others more signifi- cant than yourselves" (Philip- pians 2:3). We are called and commanded to do our best to think of others as more sig- nificant and ourselves with a sense of humility. But beyond that we must remember at times like this we need each other more than ever. Don't fall into the trap that believes, we need to argue instead of listen. We can change our cul- ture when we commit to that belief.

Sun- day morning fellowship 10 a.m.; Church at 10 :30 a.m.; Bible studies: Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. at Brian Eilert's house and Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. at church. "Send out Your light and Your truth. Let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your tabernacle" (Psalms 43:3). This plea has been an- swered. God sent Jesus, the Holy Spirit and His Word as the light that leads to Him. Our problem is that we want to see the light without be- ing restricted to walking in it. But that always leads to prob- lems and obstacles. Even when walking in the light, there are those who want to push or pull us out of it, some by force, but most by trick- ery. Just because we don't like the truth doesn't mean we can overlook or disobey it. We must stick to it and move onward within it, at peace with others to the best of our ability. Denny Wiscaver, Pastor Kimberly Flynn, Reporter LIVING FAITH CHURCH INTERNATIONAL 601 S. 9th Street, Petersburg Phone: 812-809-4544 Are we the kind of Chris- tians who feels that we've ac- complished our calling just by attending church service and volunteering to those less fortunate? Or are okay with doing what God asks us to do as long as it doesn't interfere with our personal schedule or comfort? When we look in the Bible, we see Christ's followers who gave up home and family to follow God's calling on their lives or were thrown into the most difficult circumstances, but continued to trust God with their lives. And God, who is faithful and trustworthy, brought them to places of victory in their lives and ministry. If our focus is on our feel- ings, our comfort, or on our- selves in any way, we are set up for failure. We must be so focused on God and His mis- sion for us that we don't get discouraged, upset, or dis- tracted by the devices of the enemy. Read I Timothy 6:12.

"You were called to this kind of endurance, because Christ suffered on your be- half. He left you an exam- ple so that you might follow in his footsteps. He com- mitted no sin, nor did he ever speak in ways meant to deceive. When he was insulted, he did not reply with insults. When he suf- fered, he did not threaten revenge. Instead, he en- trusted himself to the one who judges justly. He car- ried in his own body on the cross the sins we com- mitted. He did this so that we might live in righteous- ness, having nothing to do with sin. By his wounds you were healed. Though you were like straying sheep, you have now returned to the shepherd and guard- ian of your lives" (I Peter 2:21-25). God Bless.

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.
