NEWS & NOTES
Our sympathy is with Linda Henry and her family after the passing of her brother, Mike Allen, on April 26. Services will be in Abilene later this week.
Thank you for the prayers, cards, and flowers. We are grateful for friends like you at this time of sorrow. The Rosser Family
Thank you, church family, for taking such good care of us these past weeks as we have dealt with my broken leg. Even while I was stuck at home recovering, unable to be with everyone at church, I never felt a moment of isolation or loneliness due to the abundance of cards, calls, texts, visits, prayers, help and food you sent our way. I am convinced this outpouring of love has everything to do with how well I am recovering. This has been a harrowing experience, but God has done good things with it by showing us how blessed we are through you all! Love, Brian & Dawn Karguth

Good morning. What a blessing it is to worship together as the body of Christ! Welcome to all our church family and to our guests.
Today I will wrap up my sermon series on Jude. This little letter packs quite a punch, doesn't it? Last week’s text was somewhat discouraging as Jude describes the nature of the false teaching and the character of the false teachers. But Jude’s purpose was not to induce fear.
He will end the letter on a positive note giving us all strategies to protect us from error, and it’s all based on the faithfulness and power of the God we serve. Jude ends with one of the most glorious doxologies in the Bible—words that inspire us to live victoriously as we anticipate the coming of Jesus and the glory to come. Here are his closing words:
To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
