Revelation 1:4b-8 – New International Version (NIV)Greetings and Doxology4 John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen. 7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds,” and “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him”; and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.” So shall it be! Amen. 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Warm Jackets, Rolling Luggage & Backpacks needed at JUSTA Center
JUSTA Center, the day center for senior citizens needs our help. The homeless men and women there need warm jackets, now that the weather is getting cool in the evenings and they sleep on the streets. They also could use some of your old luggage – rolling style luggage and backpacks. This type of luggage, are things that the homeless can easily take with them. Remember they take all that they own with them on their backs or following behind them in a pull type piece of luggage. If you have these items, please bring them to the church office and we will get them from there to JUSTA Center. Thanks so much.
