Equipping You for Ministry

Disability, sickness, tragic deaths, unexpected set backs, and dreams that seemingly turn to nightmares - ever faced that kind of challenge?

One question we ask is, "Why?" "Why me?" "Why my spouse or child?" "Why now?" "Why would God allow such pain and suffering?

Others ask, "Who is to blame?" Blame can get turned inward, on to others, and even onto God. Have you ever found playing the blame game helpful?
What about asking, "God what could happen now? God where are you and what will you do in this situation?

You are invited to worship this Sunday to ask the hard questions about suffering, disease, and waiting on God. You are invited to think about real answers - not overly simplistic answers. You are invited to consider what God will do in the midst of your questions.
