I saw the news today. I saw a lost soul searching for help, even a prayer to release him from the burden he was ex- periencing from a demon- ic power not seen by human eyes. My heart was saddened as I watched people celebrat- ing and dancing in the streets after the conviction of a man whom misjudged and ne- glected his duties, causing the death of another. When I believe we should have been praying for him and his victim. "Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles" (Proverb 24:17). "He ( Jesus) told us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us" (Mat- thew 5:44) .

May 4-9, Spring Revival. Evangelist: Rev. and Mrs. Bil- ly McCoy. The Great Question "Believe ye that I am able to do this" (Matthew 9:28b)? "Our heart is ready, in an- swer to His question, to say with Martha: "Yes, Lord, I be- lieve that You are the Christ, the Son of God." But when it comes to believing, Christ's promise of the power of the resurrection life-of His abid- ing presence every day and all the day-we do not find it so easy to declare, "Yes, Lord, I believe." We need to clear- ly understand the conditions under which Christ offers to reveal to us the secret of His abiding presence. The resur- rection of Christ from the dead is His great plea, His all-pre- vailing argument. If he can raise Christ, He can, now that Christ has conquered death and is to us the Resurrec- tion and the Life, fulfill in our hearts His promise that Christ can be so with us and so in us that He Himself is our life all the day. So now the great ques- tion comes: Are we willing to take His word in all simplicity in its divine fullness of mean- ing and to rest in the promise, "I am with you all the day"? Christ's question comes to us individually: "Do you believe this? " Let us not rest until we have bowed before Him and said, "Yes Lord, I believe'"— Andrew Murray.

Jeff Pinney, Pastor PETERSBURG FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 801 East Walnut Petersburg 812-354-6658 Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world We are back to a full minis- try schedule. Worship service 9:30 a.m. and Sunday school 10 :45 a.m. We are also broadcasting our Sunday worship service live on Facebook at Peters- burg First United Methodist Church. Wednesday evening Bible study: Parables from Mark with the Parable of the Wick- ed Tenants. Review Mark 12: 1- 12 and come share your ideas with us. Rummage/Bake Sale on Saturday, May 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in conjunction with the county-wide yard sale. We are having a coney/hot dog lunch to go with it. Also, we are in- viting the community to set up their own yard sale in the FUMC Parking Lot for a dona- tion. We will advertise in The Press Dispatch for this sale. "In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruc- tion. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all sit- uations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, dis- charge all the duties of your ministry" (II Timothy 4:1-5). God Bless. Michael (Mike) Punke, Pastor PETERSBURG FREE METHODIST CHURCH 202 Walnut Street As the number of COVID cas- es decreases, people are start- ing to return to many of the ac- tivities they have been missing. We are returning to many of our regular activities. We cur- rently meet in person for wor- ship service at 10 :30 a.m. on Sunday. The messages are al- so live on Facebook, or you can watch the message later. With the weather getting warmer, we will start transmitting via an FM station, if you prefer to stay in your car and listen in the church parking lot. We will let people know when we start broadcasting and what channel to tune into. Sunday school for all ages re- opens at 9:30 a.m. Location of the classes has changed. We will help you get to the proper classroom. We have also started a new Sunday School class called "The Journey." Jodi Correll is teach- ing. This is not an age-based class. It is a discipleship class designed to help people know Scripture better, and become more like Jesus. It is a great class for young adults, new be- lievers and people who just want to be refreshed and grow, even if they have been following Je- sus for years. Youth Group meets at 5 p.m. on Sunday. It is our goal for our youth group to be service ori- ented. The teens will do a work project at someone's house or other ministry, and have a brief devotional. It is important that we have your contact information and a way to contact each teen, because we may meet at the church, or at the place we will be serving. Families are welcome take part in the service project, but the parents are responsible for their children. The nursery will remain closed for now. We don't believe it is a good idea to allow children of different families to play together at this time. If your child needs to be tak- en out of the service, the nurs- ery can always be used as a place to change your child, or as a cry room. It is important that everyone wears their masks until they reach their seat. We also ask that people stay with the group they came with and not shake hands. We use every other pew, and ask that you stay socially dis- tanced from those in your pew who you did not come with. We make every effort to ster- ilize our facility between ser- vices. There is a basket as you en- ter the sanctuary for tithes and offerings. You may also give online through petersburgfmc. org. There is a link to our website on our Facebook page also, and we often put announcements and information on both pages. Peace and joy in the Lord.

He was waiting for the consolation of Isra- el and the Holy Spirit was on him" (Luke 2:25). If we find ourselves in a sea- son of waiting, may we hear the word of the prophet Isa- iah with fresh ears: "Those who hope in the Lord will re- new their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40 :31). As we await Jesus' return, He provides the hope and strength we need for each new day. When have you become weary as you waited for God? What encouraged you to en- dure during that challenging season? "Jesus, I wait for You. Through pain, tears and un- certainty, help me to not be- come weary but to rest in Your provision"—Amen.
