Never Give Up

There are days, I know,
when you get so discouraged.
It seems that all hope is gone.
But there's only one who can give you courage
and strength to carry on.

This old world, I know, can't last much longer,
and sin will soon pass away.
But my faith in God simply
keeps growing stronger,
for Jesus is coming some day.

Never give up, Jesus is coming. 
It's the darkest just before dawn.
Never give up, Jesus is coming,
Never give up, keep holding on.

Dear Lord forgive me for the time
that I waste looking for selfish “fun”
And then pine away just being overwhelmed
by what all needs to be done
“One thing at a time” is what you bring to my thoughts
Don’t let defeat build on defeat and be bound up in knots”
“I am your strength ... just put me first on your “to do” list.
And do whatever you do to the glory of God,
you know “I am in your midst”.
“You’ll find joy upon joy as you accomplish your goals
With my purpose in mind nothing is insignificant
or petty when you touch other souls”
“Then you can look back and say
‘I’m free and unbelievably blessed
My precious Savior encourages me
to more than past even this test! ‘“
Peggy Nadeau

Please Join Our Youth
as they host the 5th Sabbath, Jan 30th!

Our special guest is Elder Dwayne Lemon. Dwayne Lemon is an Ordained Elder in the Adventist Church. He is the Director of PTH Ministries, a bible based ministry of Preaching, Teaching and Healing. Elder Lemon's greatest desire is to help people have a real, dynamic, and fully consecrated life in Jesus. 

From an early age, Dwayne Lemon had a love and passion for dancing. His talents took him a long way. He was able to do choreographic dancing for famous artists on the world stage. However, after losing his nephew to gun violence he realized that there was more to life than entertainment. After coming across a flyer that invited him to a series of Bible meetings, he attended only to find answers to his hearts deepest questions. A providential series of events led him to humble himself and be converted to Jesus Christ.

Event Schedule:

9:30a - 10:30a: Sabbath School with Elder Lemon
10:30a: Pre-Service Presented by the Youth
11:00a: Divine Worship with Elder Lemon
1:15p: Local Hiking event led by Abel Lambert

Mark your calendar, tell a friend, and may we all be blessed!

An Encouraging Testimony

Provided by Kodi Kostenko

“On the last night of a four-week evangelistic crusade that we attended in Chattanooga, I saw a young lady as we were sitting in the audience. We made eye contact and she smiled at me and I smiled back and thought man, she looks like the girl we met that has been coming to the meetings with her boyfriend… Brittany is it? So as we were going out the back at the end of the service, I saw her standing there and I said, ‘Hey, are you Brittany?’ ‘No, actually my name is Destiny.’

We started chatting and I found out she works at the Little Debbie factory, and someone there who had given her a puppy recommended that she come to this church. 

‘Yeah, this is actually my first time ever in an Adventist church,’ she told me. ‘My dad was a Baptist pastor for 18 years but I haven’t been to any church in quite a while.’

Turned out that Destiny had just been through a rough one-year marriage and divorce. ‘You know I didn’t do it God’s way, but I want to do it His way this time and I want to find someone who is in the church.’ Destiny confided.

We talked some more and I shared counsel from the Word. Anyway, please keep her in prayer. I just really feel that God brought her to the church we were attending and that he guided me that evening to make contact with her.” Fawna concluded. 
Yes, there is no doubt, it must have been Destiny, even if her name had been Brittany! God never leaves giving chances to chance, and He will guide your life upward today in His salvation way and He will order your steps in order that you may meet others and invite them to come along! 

God’s plan for you is not to have a meaningless life.
He wants you to enjoy 
power-filled living now! In this online series, Pastor John Bradshaw will share practical Bible messages to help you experience a revival in your heart, in your home, and in your church. Join No Limits: A Life of Power Jan. 24-29, 2021. Registration will open Dec. 10, 2020, at nolimits2021.com. Download sharing resources at itiswritten.com/rtresources



We need prayer today more than ever.

“Teach me your decrees, O LORD;
I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding
and I will obey your instructions;
I will put them into practice with all my heart.”

Psalm 119:33-34, NLT
