WNL Zoom Bible Study! We had Callen and Truitt join in and say “Hi” to each other! ❤️👋🏻 #toddlerfriends

First United Methodist Church, Midland, TX

In this video, Pastor Steve shares a brief word of encouragement in light of the hard news of the day. In case you missed it, he encourages you to watch the sermon from yesterday as he and Pastor Kurt began a new series of sermons on Psalm 23 called Walking in the Downturn. It is so appropriate for days like today. He also challenges us to memorize and pray Psalm 23 on the even number waking hours and to pray The Lord’s Prayer on the odd number waking hours in order to help keep us steady and focused during these hard, dark days. We are not alone. Grace and Peace.
