The Beacon E-Newsletter

June, July, August 2017/ Volume 9 Number 6


By Pastor Don Nelson

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” Dante envisioned those words inscribed over the gateway to hell. 

If anyone had an excuse to abandon all hope, it was the apostle Paul. He endured extreme suffering and rejection to proclaim a Messiah whose Gospel is {1st Co 1:23} “a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,” and to build congregations of (generally) ignorant, lowly people who were (for the most part) easy targets for heresy, legalism, sexual sin, and divisive conflict within the Church, and social oppression and violet persecution from without.

Thank you.

My Dear Church Family,
Many thanks to all of you for praying for me when I was sick. Thanks to all who sent me cards, flowers, well-wishes and calls. I so appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness.
Love, Elma Borozan

Thank you to all who supported the flower sale this spring for the benefit of youth campers and CHIC attendees. July 2018 will be here sooner than we expect and our 3 CHIC aged youth will have a head start on the fees for that wonderful week of Christian growth.
