From Nehemiah we see not only do we need to be willing to serve God, we need to be prepared; the question is: Are you ready? Read Nehemiah, chapter 2.

Pastor Keith Griswold continues his 6-week study of Nehemiah.

We begin today’s worship with a reading of Psalm 139:1-6

Our opening hymn is “Be Thou My Vision,” by
Eleanor Henrietta Hull and Mary Elizabeth Byrne.

Unless a man has trained himself for his chances, the chances will only make him look ridiculous.

Are Your Ready to Pray?
  • If we have been called by God, we need to be in conversation with him.
  • Nehemiah 2:4
  • I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Are You Ready for Some Late & Lonely Nights?

To do the task that God has called you to will require time and effort that others won’t always see.
