Weekly Update - 11/11

Thank you Randy for our message this morning"Real Religion", with the text taken from James 1:26-27.
He taught us about:
●WORTHY religion (verse 26)
●UNWORTHY religion (verse 27)
    ■Control for tongue.
    ■Care for the distressed
    ■Conduct yourself appropriately in culture
He asked us to use these applications, this week.
● Intentionally encourage someone through conversation.
●Help someone who is in a difficult circumstance.
●Do something "counter-culture".

Our homework for this week is to read the book Jonah.
