Proclaiming God's love to Austin and Beyond

If you would like to have announcements listed in the bulletin or here in our weekly newsletter please email me at All requests have to be to me by Wednesday evening before Sabbath.

Since I do not have any bible verses for this weeks sermon I chose a couple of my own that I wanted to share. I feel it is important to have some verses each week from the bible to reflect on and lift us up!

Treasure Text:
Isaiah 40:28-31 NIV
Comfort for God's People
28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
