  • Are You 'Made for a Miracle'?

    Are You 'Made for a Miracle'?

    Date: March 5, 2019

    (Rockford, IL) At some time in our lives, most of us have prayed for or hoped for a miracle—an event that seems impossible but is brought about by God’s transcendent power. But when miracles occur, did you know that you have a role to play?

    If that’s true, what’s the catch? What do we have to do? What’s it going to cost us?

    Popular author and pastor Mike Slaughter examines the two components of every miracle: divine action and human responsibility. For a real miracle to take place, we must act with God, using whatever gifts, talents, and abilities we have and directing them toward God’s work. We need to follow the examples of Mary in the birth of Jesus, Jesus’ followers when he healed them, and Jesus’ disciples after he rose from the dead.

    This Lent use your God-given gifts and talents for God’s glory, and get ready to be made for a miracle. You are invited to a video-based study by Mike Slaughter:

    Sunday • March 10 • 11:30 a.m. • Church Parlor
    Pastor Cal, facilitator

    Friday • March 15 • 1:00 p.m. • 1812 Meadows Circle

    Date: December 27, 2018

    (Rockford, IL) National Hug Day has been declared for January 21st so we're going to get the jump on it by celebrating it in church on Sunday, January 20th. Read the article in our January 2019 'Chimes' called '10 Reasons Why We Need at Least 8 Hugs a Day' to get the in-depth explanation, but basically hugs, giving and receiving, boost our sense of safety, our oxytocin levels, and our serotonin levels.
