In today's "secular" world, we often forget that there is a difference between one's personal desires and the desires that God has placed in our hearts. God leads us through desires, but it is not an excuse to live a life of self-pleasure and self-fulfillment. Instead, it is a call to align our hearts with the heart of God, to burn with passion for the things that God longs to see on the earth and to be sensitive to the Spirit's tug on our hearts.

For the good of the church:
Please pray for the church, her growth and mission, for our leadership and our ongoing building project, and for our new youth group,
Remember to keep in your prayers the members and attendees of the church especially: the Pastor's family; the sick and shut in members.
