-A A +A

• The church is looking for ways to evangelize outside of the church. Last week, members walked the streets and prayed over the businesses and apartments, asking God to bless Williamstown and save the lost.
• Sunday evening, 10-year-old Wesley Cain brought the message. It was awesome. There were so many more than usual for Sunday evening, even Wesley’s school teacher and his family came to support him.

• What does it mean to be godly? God looks at the heart of each being and judges godliness. He can sense an attitude of dedication to do His will. Christians need to have a dedication to succeed no matter what the cost. A willingness to train constantly is also required. The Christian life offers the opportunity for all people to be winners. In a sports contest, only the winner receives the prize. Those who complete the Christian life will all receive the crown of life. The 10 most powerful two-letter words: if it is to be, it is up to me.
