Thanks Chris Wyant for great snacks!

Article by Joyce L. Wiedrich

Pastor Sandi gave another message from Paul’s letters to the Corinthians, 2nd Corinthians 2: 1-10. Paul looks at, and speaks out about love in this passage.  He feels joy should be for everyone.  He also speaks of his abundant love.  We are not sure what happened to Paul when he was in Corinth, but likely it was something that gave him great sadness.  He may have felt that the sky was falling down onto him.  As a result of his experiences, Paul wants us to forgive those who have hurt us.  
He speaks of generosity, love, compassion, and faith.  He realizes one will never make everyone happy.  Some things we just have to let go of.

Pastor Sandi gave us homework to find forgiveness with someone who has deeply hurt us. This will also help with our relationship with HIM, as well as mend a personal relationship.

Don’t forget to contribute to the Yates County Hope Walk, coming up later in the month.  We are  the Bluff Point Christian Crusaders!  Ron Miller will be taking donations for luminary bags to be placed along the walkway during the walk, in memory or honor of someone who has faced cancer.  All monies raised stay locally in Yates County.

Please join us in Zoom or in-person worship 9am Sundays!
