Be still and know that I am God Psalm 46:10
Weekly Bible Studies
Because You Were Made for More
by Jennie Allen
Restless explores the fact that God has called each of us to do great things in His name, and then helps us discover what that might mean for each of us individually as we weave them together for His Glory and Purposes. We’ll study the life of Joseph the dreamer and how God used his threads to fit into the greater story of God. Untangling the threads of our lives and assembling them together in one place reveals a beautiful plan designed by the Creator Himself: God’s agenda + my threads + the need + the Holy Spirit = my purpose.

Preparing for the Journey
Triple A Bible Study Method
We find ourselves living in a world where the mantra is “me” and the justification is “self.” Such a contrast to the style by which we as Christians choose to live – “for Him” and “by Him” (Romans 11:36).
As King Solomon states “there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9). We should not then be surprised by the daily opposition we encounter as we attempt to live out our faith. The underlining theme of “the righteousness of God” in Paul’s letter to the Romans remains an essential message to us today. What we believe helps to determine how we live. We must prepare daily.
Build on your knowledge of God, His love, His power, and His grace as you study the book of Romans. You will use the simple tools of asking, analyzing and applying God’s word to your life. Prepare daily to be transformed.

Opportunities to Serve
Love In Action
Love in Action provides “911” assistance to those in need. This may be fixing and delivering a meal following the birth of a baby, during times of illness, or after a death in the family. It may be caring for a child or helping with housecleaning or yard work, home or car repair, or providing transportation to a doctor’s appointment. This is usually done on a one-time, short-notice basis.
Giving Your Time & Talents
We would love to have you join us in loving God by serving members of His body, people in our community, and those beyond our borders. Call the church offices for a complete list of needs, or visit morningstarchurch.com.
