July 2024 Messenger

July 4th commemorates the day in 1775 when our nation declared itself to be an independent nation and signed the Declaration of Independence, stating our determination to become a free country.

This day is not a religious holiday, but it is a time to think about all the goodness we have received from God.

As we celebrate America’s birthday and our freedom, Give thanks to God, Thank a Veteran, Fly your flag proudly. Freedom comes from truth and in John 8:32 it says “Then you will know truth and the truth will set you free”

I love our country, I love our state, I love our little community on the hill and I love my home. God has provided so much for all of us to enjoy. It’s great to be an American and a child of God!

May we commit our future and our lives to God and His will. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. (Psalm 33:12)

Happy 4th of July!


Carolyn White



Bible Verse Memory Plan

Week #1: My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this. Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. James 1:19-20 NIV

Week #2: Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the siles of the devil. Ephesians 6:10-11 KJV

Week #3: Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7 NIV

Week #4: A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. Proverbs 31: 10-11 NIV
