“Those of steadfast mind You keep in peace – in peace
because they trust in You. Trust in the Lord forever,
for in the Lord God you have an everlasting rock.”
Isaiah 26:3-4 (NRSV)

We are told in these verses that trust in God leads to peace.
We can be steadfast because of God’s nature and character.
He is trustworthy – He is our rock – and He grants His people peace. In worship, we praise and celebrate this God who is worthy of our trust.

Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.

Lord, as You awaken us to delight in Your praise, grant that
we may know You, call on You, and praise You; for You have
made us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless until they
find their rest in You. Amen.

In worship – in God’s presence – our restless hearts find
rest. As we worship today, may we come to know the rest
that God alone can give.

Here is spiritual maturity: when the Apostle Paul had every reason to be tired and bitter, he responded to life with joy. This is the fruit of a life lived in close relationship with God, the fruit of a life formed in Christ.”
Richard Foster

The way that we respond to life reveals both the condition of our heart
and our relationship with God. The Apostle Paul is a good example for us.
Even in hardship, Paul chose a life of joy. As God empowers us, we can
make that same choice.

In worship today, we invite God to come close – and to have His way
with us. We invite God to give us the strength to choose joy.

Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.

Thank you for the cards, kind words, and the flowers sent during the loss of my mom, Betty Engberg.

She is with the Lord now and having faith in that will carry us through! Many blessings to all of you.
