Each parent will indicate those allowed to pick up their child from Jr. Church by checking all the appropriate boxes on the sign-in sheet.

5 Great Reasons to memorize Scripture from Don Whitney's Book: "Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life"
1. Memorization Supplies Spiritual Power “When Scripture is stored in your mind, it is available for the Holy Spirit to bring to your attention when you need it most.” 2. Memorization Strengthens Your Faith. “Memorization strengthens your faith because it repeatedly reinforces the truth, often just when you need to hear it again.” 3. Memorization Prepares Us for Witnessing and Counseling. “Recently, while I was talking to a man about Jesus, he said something that brought to mind a verse I had memorized. I quoted that verse, and it was the turning point in a conversation that resulted in him professing faith in Christ. I often experience something similar in counseling conversations. But until the verses are hidden in the heart, they aren’t available to use with the mouth.” 4. Memorization Provides a Means of God’s Guidance. “Just as the Holy Spirit retrieves scriptural truth from our memory banks for use in counseling others, so also will He bring it to our minds in providing timely guidance for ourselves.” 5. Memorization Stimulates Meditation. “One of the most amazing benefits of memorizing Scripture is that it provides fuel for meditation. When you have memorized a verse of Scripture, you can meditate on it anywhere at any time during the day or night.”
The verse to be memorized for this week:
"Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person."
How can we pray for you? Send your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org The prayer team consists of the Elders, Deacons, Church Staff and a small group of individuals that have committed to pray for RGBC needs.
