Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 Regular services: Sunday school 9:30 a.m. and worship service at 10 :30 a.m. Over and over in the gos- pels, Jesus says, especially around the parables, "he who has ears, let him hear." Now, I would venture to say that all of us have ears. But let me ask you this, can you hear? We need to understand Je- sus didn't mean the one who physically has ears let him hear, he was using a meta- phor. One specifically birthed from Isaiah chapter six. For a long time, God's people had ample opportunity to hear the word of God. However, they lacked the sense, and the spiritual maturity to di- gest and apply it. His word, spoken by the prophets, went in one ear and out the other. And similarly, in the time of Jesus, they had ears, but they weren't hearing. But those of us who are in Christ ought not to have excuses. That means, we the people of God should be hearing and perceiving. Paul tells the church in I Cor- inthians 2:10 ; "these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God." Do you VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E. State Rd. 56 Our normal services are Sunday morning worship and the Lord's supper at 9:30 a.m.; Bible school at 10 :30 a.m.; eve- ning worship at 6:30 p.m. At this time, I don't know what the state will recommend on Friday for assembly on Sun- day. Stewardship "Stewardship puts the Gold- en Rule into business in place of the Rule of Gold." The Apostle Paul said, "Ev- ery man according as he pur- poseth in his heart, so let him give, not grudgingly, or of ne- cessity; for God loveth a cheer- ful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work" (II Corinthians 9:7-8). Because He lives.

"But He is unique, and who can make Him change? And whatever His soul de- sires, that He does" ( Job 23:13). God's unique desire is that none perish by being sepa- rated from Him. To accom- plish this amidst people who have free choice, He per- formed the task Himself. Then He sent the Holy Spir- it to coax us into a relation- ship with Him. Our response to that relationship deter- mines whether we are sep- arated from God forever, or get to continue the relation- ship through eternity. Your response is important, and so is the strength of your re- lationship with God.

May 12 -17—Spring reviv- al with Evangelist Rev. and Mrs. Tom and Judy Bell at 7 p.m. nightly. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me" ( John 14:6). A young man was being in- terviewed as a prospective pilot for a paddlewheel river boat on the Mississippi Riv- er. He was told, "We're look- ing for a man who knows where all the snags in the channel are located." The shifting sands and the dan- gerous snags embedded in them were a constant threat to the river boats. The applicant had to admit that he didn't know where all the snags were. "But," he added, "I know where they are not." He got the job. It is that way with the Chris- tian journey. It is not nec- essary to know every snag of distraction around us. It is enough to know the chan- nel, the true way to God. And such is Jesus Christ.

Regular services: Sun- day school, Junior church and youth class 9:30 a.m.; morning worship 10 :30 a.m.; evening service 6:30 p.m.; Wednesday evening prayer and praise service 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome to each service. Almost without excep- tion, when God prepares to save a nation, he will be- gin with a praying mother. Hannah brought her frus- trations to the Lord. She prayed in her pain. She prayed when she was mis- understood. She kept pray- ing even when the preach- er misunderstood and mis- judged her. She kept pray- ing when there was no assurance that things would ever really be any different. Of all the blessings that you thank God for, stop now and thank God specifically if you had a praying moth- er. If you are a mother, stop this minute and ask God to help you in your "closet as- signments." Battles that af- fect the destiny of nations are won and lost in the prayer closets of praying UNION COMMUNITY CHURCH 3082 N.

"When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd" (Mat- thew 9:36). "Our world suffers not on- ly from physical needs but also from spiritual broken- ness. Jesus came to meet that need and challenged His followers to join Him in this work (v. 37-38). He prayed that the Father would raise up workers to respond to the needs all around us—peo- ple who struggle with lone- liness, sin and illness. May the Father give us a heart for others that mirrors His heart. In the strength of His Spirit, we can express His compassionate concern to those who are suffering"— Bill Crowder. Josh Sanders, Pastor Sherry Julian, Reporter WHITE RIVER CHAPEL UMC 3555 W. SR 56 Bowman 812-582-8896 Sunday morning worship 9 a.m.; Sunday school 10 :15 a.m. We are exploring the words in Philippians 4:4-9 and how they can help us thrive in chaos. So many trials come in- to our lives and along with 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 in- to our lives—a peace that passes all understanding— He is in control. Facebook: White River Chapel UMC, Jeff Pinney.

Jeff Pinney, Pastor PETERSBURG CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE 118 West Pike Ave. Church 812-354-8851 Currently all services and activities are put on hold until the passing of this virus. Prayer chain updates, texts and phone calls will be made regularly to the congregation to keep you up on what is going on. "For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10). He came for you. He came for me. He wants to be there for you during this pan- demic, and be your help and comfort. Let's turn to Him for our help during this difficult time. We are excited to an- nounce that we have a new pastor and wife moving into our parsonage soon. Steve and Joye Hamilton will join the Church of the Nazarene in Petersburg soon. We are grateful for answered prayers. Need a church home? Stop in and visit. We would love to have you to be a part of our church family. Jeannine Smith, Report- er HOUSE OF MERCY CHURCH Corner of East and Porter Winslow Pastor 812-789-5229 A Church with open arms and a loving heart. We are on Facebook live Sunday morning at 10 :30 a.m., bringing the Word of God through preaching and teaching. We will be using this format until the time we can come together again in our churches. I am believing that great expectations will be in the heart of the Church, (those hungry and thirsty for a move of God, which has not been for a number of years), for a harvest of souls, a great awakening or better yet a revival of the saints in and of themselves, where the Holy Spirit will have free reign in and through them. And we will just be able to watch the awesome- ness of God transform lives into a newness of life. Pray for all that are labor- ing, so we can be provided necessities of life.
