Main Street Christian Church
This Sunday, Aug. 12, Main Street Christian Church will celebrate the paying off of their mortgage, named Reach For Tomorrow. The mortgage allowed the church to combine and pave two parking lots, tear down the old partsonage, add a Morgan Street entrance, install an elevator, add a narthex, two restrooms, and an additional classroom. The entrance and addition was dedicated in 2002.
The celebration will be held during one combined service at 9:30 a.m.
Sunday School classes will not be held this Sunday.
In his morning message, entitled, ÒCelebrating God's Power," Pastor Sam Davenport will portray King Jehoshaphat, and his challenge and trust during a crisis invasion by foreign powers from II Chronciles 20.
A celebration reception will be held following the service in the downstairs Fellowship Hall. The public is invitated attend all services.

The Bible tells us in the book of Philippians how we can have joy no matter what our circumstances. The life of the Apostle Paul is a great example. Even while in prison Paul wrote to the church in Philippi to encourage the leaders to continue the Lord's work. How did Paul find peace in this situation? Only through trusting and obeying God was this possible. Paul had learned the secret to happiness was not about what was happening in his life. His joy came from his dependence on Christ. All of us want to be happy. Millions of dollars have been spent on the pursuit of happiness. But the fact remains no amount of money can compare to a life dedicated to serving Christ. We can also have joy during the hard times when we focus on Christ. To learn how to live joyful join us this week for the continuing sermon series on Unstoppable Joy.
