GATORS FOR CHRIST Twenty-three of our summer students are enjoying a great Memorial Day weekend in Orlando at Universal Islands of Adventure, along with young adult Bible class, worship and lunch at the Sanford Church of Christ today! Wednesday at 7pm is our “Esther” Bible class by Donny & Chris in FLC,  #212.


1 Peter 5:2 “Be Shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care…”

The Lyrics of the Grown Up Christmas List says, “No more lives torn apart. Then wars would never start…” In a perfect world is the place of “no more” — no more sadness, no more evil, no more bad news. That is what heaven is “God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Revelation 21:4,5. Although we struggle with temptation and sin, we need to be faithful until the end. Because we know how the story ends, We Win! What a wonderful joy it is to know that we are victorious in Christ. Heaven is our forever home where we are going to have a perfect fellowship with God and “no more” does not exist.
