THE UPPER ROOM
The Youth Gathering Place!
We are having great Bible studies in the Upper Room on Sunday nights! It has been so awesome to hear the hearts of the young people and their desire to please God. Their prayers for the unsaved are so heartfelt.
Lately, we have been discussing Romans 12. There is so much in that chapter! Verse 2 has really prompted some wonderful discussions:
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Come to the Upper Room, bring your friends, and let us learn more how to live out the Word of God in every moment of our lives.
We meet Sunday evenings @ 6 pm for Bible Study, prayer, worship, refreshments and some fun! We would LOVE to see you!

Read Deuteronomy 6:1 through 8:20; Mark 8:14 through 9:11
Billions of dollars’ worth of treasure rests in chambers beneath the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in India. Gold coins, jewelry, diamonds, precious stones, and crowns are hidden below ground. The treasure sits in its chambers, providing nothing for the people to whom it belongs. This vast wealth remains hidden and inaccessible. God, however, reveals a better treasure to the world:
You are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession (Deuteronomy 7:6).
God declared the worth of Israel. The nation belonged to Him and its people were considered precious. He provided the Israelites with a purpose and sent them out to do a great work for His Kingdom.
God also chose you to be a part of this great treasure. He designed you to be accessible to the world as a blessing. Recognize your worth and share your time and ability with the those around you.
Challenge for Today: Shine like treasure in your workplace.
