Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014, Women's Brunch & Talk;11am
Topic: Be Your Own Advocate at Any Age
This month's talk will focus on taking care of business--advocating for yourself (and eventually, others). The saying, "...take care of yourself first, then you can take care of, or help others..." is true.
How many of us go through life feeling powerless or overwhelmed? Knowledge is freedom, but when and how to apply that knowledge sometimes befuddles even the most surefooted among us.
We will discuss what can be done (at any age) to bring comfort and peace of mind to anyone seeking control of their lives. Some wait for end of life to deal with certain tasks...but life happens along the way. You must tackle the task while strong to avoid the problems of when you are weak.
Curious? Join us on the 28th! Hope to see you there~Feel free to bring a vegetarian dish or dessert for our potluck.
I will feature a monthly item that we can donate to the ladies of the Providence Rescue Mission. September will be socks~ any type of socks. This is a huge need for the guests at the mission; with cooler weather around the corner, what better time to provide socks. So, anyone willing and able to bring socks (any kind~ in any amount), please bring them on the 28th, or if you want to donate but can't attend, please leave them to my attention at the church. Also, socks can be donated even if they are used--just be sure they are free of holes and are laundered.
NOTE: If all you have are men's socks...we will gladly donate those, too :)
Thank you, Betty Williamson (401) 723-9256
“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.:
Jesus Lights the Way
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
1 Peter 5:7.
Do not take your troubles to human beings. Take them to the Lord. You May think that others ought to sympathize with you in your trials, but you will sometimes be disappointed. Jesus never disappoints the one who comes to Him for help. He is saying to you today, “Come unto me, ... and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). He will give you rest in Him. No one who comes to Him goes away unhelped. Take your burdens to the divine Burden Bearer and leave them with Him, knowing that He will carry them for you....
Act your part in helping yourselves, as all must do who would be blessed. Do not dwell upon the hardships of the Christian life. Do not talk of your trials.... Do not utter one despondent word, for such words please Satan. Talk of Christ’s goodness and tell of His power. Words of hope and trust and courage are as easily spoken as words of complaint....
When the enemy tells you that the Lord has forsaken you, tell him that you know He has not; for He declares, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5). Dismiss the enemy. Tell him you will not dishonor the Lord by doubting His love....
There is no limit to the help that the Saviour is willing to bestow on us. He asks us to bring into our lives the grace that will keep us from sin. From the cross of Calvary there comes to us liberty, hope, and strength. Do not dishonor your Redeemer by doubting His power. Trust Him all the time. Take hold of the riches of His grace, saying, “I will believe; I do believe that Jesus died for me.” The way before you May seem dark, but Jesus can make it light.
Be joyful in God. Christ is light and in Him is no darkness at all. Look toward the light. Accustom yourselves to speak the praise of God. Make others happy. This is your first work. It will strengthen the best traits of character. Throw the windows of the soul wide open heavenward and let the sunshine of Christ’s righteousness in. Morning, noon, and night your hearts May be filled with the bright rays of heaven’s light.

“He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you?
But to do justly, To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God”
Now in the Day of Atonement
The righteous and the wicked will still be living upon the earth in their mortal state—men will be planting and building, eating and drinking, all unconscious that the final, irrevocable decision has been pronounced in the sanctuary above. Before the Flood, after Noah entered the ark, God shut him in and shut the ungodly out; but for seven days the people, knowing not that their doom was fixed, continued their careless, pleasure-loving life and mocked the warnings of impending judgment. “So,” says the Saviour, “shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:30.
Silently, unnoticed as the midnight thief, will come the decisive hour which marks the fixing of every man’s destiny, the final withdrawal of mercy’s offer to guilty men.
“Watch ye therefore:...lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping.” Mark 13:35-36.
Perilous is the condition of those who, growing weary of their watch, turn to the attractions of the world. While the man of business is absorbed in the pursuit of gain, while the pleasure lover is seeking indulgence, while the daughter of fashion is arranging her adornments—it may be in that hour the Judge of all the earth will pronounce the sentence: “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.” Daniel 5:27.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
We would love to have you worship with us.
