Treasure Quotes/Thoughts


We are incurring unnecessary expenses due to wipes being flushed down the toilet. The wipes clog up the septic pump and expenses are incurred every time the pump must be pulled and unclogged. PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH WIPES! Please dispose of them in the trash can. Thank you for your help in avoiding these unnecessary expenses.

Worship Service
Lazar (Lazarus) and Jasmina (Jasmine) had been avid and loyal Communists during the Tito regime in Yugoslavia. But they began to notice that the party officials had nicer homes and cars and soon disillusionment set in. One day, an Adventist friend invited Jasmina to church. She liked what she heard but Lazar was not interested. Later, during some evangelistic meetings, Jasmina tried to get Lazar to attend. Finally he consented but in the darkened auditorium, he decided to take a nap. However, the message that evening was on the state of the dead, and during the story of the raising of Lazarus the pastor called out, “Lazar, wake up!” Lazar shot up in his seat, turned to his wife and said, “How does that man know my name?!” Well, you guessed it – a few weeks later Lazar was baptized into the Novi Sad church. Evangelism still works!
