These words should penetrate all of our hearts as I would be the first to admit that the measure of faith that God has so graciously given to me could stand to be built upon. However, there is a particular area in our lives in which God has purposed for our faith to grow, and that can be found in the words spoken by the Centurion of Matthew 8:5-10.</p> CHURCH NOTES 10-23-14 http://www.grantky.com/content/church-notes-10-23-14 <p> Bethany Baptist<br /> &bull; Oct. 26 &ndash; Happy Christian Clown will visit.

But what is this &ldquo;good life?&rdquo; To begin with we should act as a community of grace, and as Christians we are uniquely positioned to demonstrate. &nbsp;</p> CHURCH NOTES 10-16-14 http://www.grantky.com/content/church-notes-10-16-14 <p> &nbsp;Bethany Baptist<br /> &bull; 10 a.m. Sunday School; 11 a.m. worship service and 7 p.m. evening worship.<br /> &bull; Pastor - Donald Joe Kannady<br /> <br /> Canby Tabernacle<br /> &bull; Pastor Belve Barger&nbsp; The church is located on Highway 330 West.<br /> &bull; Sunday services are 10 a.m. Sunday School; 11 a.m. worship service and 6:30 p.m. fellowship and Bible Study.<br /> &bull; Wednesday service at 7 p.m.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Christ Community Assembly of God<br /> Emotions can be a roller coaster at times http://www.grantky.com/content/emotions-can-be-roller-coaster-times <img src="http://www.grantky.com/sites/www.grantky.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/barry_robinson-wumc_6.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> There are times when I feel like that I am on cloud nine and can&rsquo;t help but hum the theme song from &ldquo;The Greatest American Hero&rdquo; (you know, the &ldquo;believe it or not, I&rsquo;m walking on air&hellip;&rdquo;) &lsquo;But, then while in mid song, for no substantial reason (like being out of coffee!!! though some might argue that) my emotions take a tail spin and then I am in the Eeyore mode singing the &ldquo;Gloom, Despair and Agony on me&rdquo; song from Hee Haw.&nbsp; Now, let&rsquo;s apply this to our faith. &nbsp;<br /> CHURCH NOTES 10-9-14 http://www.grantky.com/content/church-notes-10-9-14 <p> Bethany Baptist<br /> &bull; 10 a.m. Sunday School; 11 a.m. worship service and 7 p.m. evening worship.<br /> &bull; Oct. 12 &ndash; Homecoming with singing and dinner.
