Power Outage

As I'm sitting here the wind is blowing and the wet, heavy snow is swirling around outside, making the potential for power outages a likelihood. Thunderstorms and other inclement weather can also affect power outages.

Deaths in Church Attacks are on the Rise

Posted by Misti McHatton in Untagged 

According to an article posted in Christianity Today, Deaths from church attacks rose 36% in 2012. They go on to explain:

According to Chinn's website, the data "includes abductions, attacks, suspicious deaths, suicides and deadly force intervention/protection." Attacks prompted by domestic violence spillover, personal conflict, and robbery account for over half of all reported DFIs.”

It is more important now, more than ever before, to take church safety and security seriously in your congregations. The Church has been designed to be God’s body here on Earth. People need to feel the love, grace and protection from the Church that they can receive from God. Putting precautionary measures in place is not a sign of weakness or lack of faith. In reality, it shows that we are being wise stewards of God’s resources and love in the times we live in.

The “Partridge in a Pear Tree” represents Jesus Christ.

Pears represent: longevity, justice, strength, salvation and fruitfulness. Trees are symbols of strength and life. Partridges represent a kindred love of knowledge. Partridges are also known for being independent and able to endure the harsh winter season.
