The Message

Pastor Bruce Campbell

If the Apostle Peter were with us today, what do you think he might say regarding our difficulties? Would it be, "You think you got it rough?!" Or maybe, "I can really feel your pain." Or still yet, "Rejoice in your suffering for Christ!" Our Surviving the Times, through First Peter, continues with him asking us these four Fiery Ordeal Questions . . .

When Life Gets Really Difficult
1 Peter 4:12-14

Prayer Warrior: Would you like to be more committed to prayer? How about enlisting in our Prayer Warrior ministry? This is the time for our mid-year encouragement for those who have not heard about it, or did not get around to it the first time. We currently have 32 warriors, praying for 2535 minutes per week. You may register online or if you prefer a paper registration form, they may be found at the Connection Tent.

H.O.P.E.: If you are concerned about the direction family values is going within our state and our school system, then we invite you to make your thoughts and opinions known. Please fill out the survey on Hawaiishope.com.

Calendar Planning: We’ll be having a church praying/plotting of dates meeting for the upcoming Grace calendar. If you would like your ministry to be represented for the September to August coming year, please join us on August 5th at 3:30 PM.

Abundant Giving: Did you know that you can give to our Abundant Giving fund anytime you like? Besides our annual Abundant Giving emphasis in November, we also welcome it at any time of the year, as God blesses you. Abundant Giving is an offering over and above one's normal tithe, that goes directly toward paying off the principal on our newly consolidated building loan. You can either go to Cheerful Give or just write "Abundant Giving" on the memo line of your check any Sunday.
