The Press-Dispatch Wednesday, November 24, 2021 C-3 But he started being discon- tent with his place and want- ed to be above God in author- ity and position. There is nothing wrong with being un-satisfied as long as you set your mind to work with God and attain new wisdom and new hope. The Bible says to learn to be content with what you have and to work towards hav- ing more, but don't ever try to usurp a new position. Do be careful because the dev- il doesn't want you. He just doesn't want you to succeed with the Lord, he loves for us to be miserable and defeated. In church the message was about being the light of the world and by being this light we are to always let it shine, so people can see God in our lives. I know this article will be read after we have expe- rienced a couple of days of this week, but after you read my words do your best to be a light and be a blessing to all. Pentecostal Nazarene Methodist PAWS WEEK PAWS WEEK Pet of the PRECIOUS "The ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat" —Jules Re- nard. This week, PAWS is featuring an elegant fe- line named Precious, who likes to perch herself high on the heating unit and watch all the activities that take place during the day at PAWS. Precious is a large tab- by. In Christian folklore, a tabby cat dutifully showed up to comfort baby Jesus. In gratitude, his moth- er Mary stroked the cat's head and left an M mark on its forehead. Precious has plush, tiger-striped fur, with white accents and long white whiskers. She is hopeful she will find a home for the holidays to call her own. To adopt Pre- cious, call 812-354-9894.

"O God, you are my God I shall seek You earnestly. My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Thus, I have seen you in the sanctuary. To see Your power and Glory. Be- cause your loving kindness is better than life my lips will praise you. So, I will Bless you as long as I live, I will lift up my hands in your name. My Soul is satisfied with marrow and fatness and my mouth of- fers praises with joyful lips" (Psalm 63:1-5). God Bless. Michael (Mike) Punke, Pastor RUMBLETOWN FREE METHODIST CHURCH 1485 N.

Hwy. 61 Spurgeon Pastor Cell 812-202- 8903 or church office 812-922-8215 Church service 9 a.m.; Fri- day Bible study at 1 p.m. "He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy" ( Job 8:21, NIV ). God created laughter, and he is the source of true joy. If you feel that there is not enough joy in your life, it is time to reflect on God's love for you. Think of all the bless- ings he has given us and that He delights in us. That alone should give us reason to smile. Remember those who need the Lord's peace, those who have lost loved ones, and those who need a reason to smile again. Happy Thanksgiving. Josh Sanders, Pastor Sherry Julian, Reporter WHITE RIVER CHAPEL UMC 3555 W. SR 56 Bowman 812-582-8896 Sunday worship 9 a.m.; Sun- day school 10 :15 a.m. We are exploring the words in Philippians 4:4-9 and how they can help us thrive in cha- os. So many trials come into 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 King- dom of God, and His righteous- ness; and all these things will be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33). What things will be add- ed? God's order back into our lives—a peace that passes all understanding—He is in con- trol. Facebook: White River Chapel UMC, Jeff Pinney.

Website: Irene's Food Pantry: Every third Saturday from 10 -11:30 a.m. Hope to see you soon. Corinna Williams, Reporter We hope you will join us Sunday as we celebrate our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Steve Hamilton, Pastor OAKLAND CITY FIRST PENTECOST Hwy. 64 East Sunday morning service 9:30 a.m. with children's Sun- day school during the minis- try of the Word; Wednesday and Sunday evening services are at 6 p.m. The children are practicing their Christmas program at this time. All ser- vices are CST (Gibson Co. times). We "will" be having regular service this Wednesday. Ephesians 5:11 (Living translation) says: "And have no fellowship with the unfruit- ful works of darkness but rath- er expose them." King James says "reprove" them. What is the disciple telling us. He is telling us when we see some one walking in the darkness of sin we are supposed to let them know what God's Words says about it. To a little kid, you might say, "Don't do that, you'll get hurt." That's basical- ly what we are saying when we try to point out to you that you are walking in a sinful life- style that will hurt you. We're not judging. God has already judged. We're simply doing what we were told to do. To saint and sinner alike, read this whole chapter. It might be an eye opener for you. We hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiv- ing. Shalom.

The Sacred in the Everyday All of the places of our lives are sanctuaries; some of them just happen to have steeples.

Amy Melhiser, Secretary OTWELL WESLEYAN CHURCH 2277 N. Mechanics Street Otwell Pastor 812-354-3028 Sunday school at 9:30 a.m.; morning worship at 10 :30 a.m.; 6:30 p.m. Sunday eve- ning worship service. Remember the chorus by The Easter Brothers, Thank You Lord for your Blessings on Me? This is a great hymn. It pretty much sums it up. There's a roof up above me, I've a good place to sleep, there's food on my table, and shoes on my feet, You gave me your love Lord, and a fine fam- ily, Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me. Happy Thanksgiving. Roy Stilwell, Pastor Pam Lemond, Reporter
