Weebles Wobble (Sunday, 5 February 2012)

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by to check in! It’s raining and snowing around the Charge right now, but we know that in the morning the Spirit will light us up and we’ll be on fire for God! Come out and join us (if you can make it safely!). If something changes weather-wise, we’ll start the phone tree and post something on the homepage here…as long as we have power.

The sermon for this week is titled, “Weebles Wobble” and is about balance in our lives. Check out Mark 1:29-39 and look for how Jesus balances work and prayer. Also, for your amusement, check out this YouTube video of an old Weebles commercial (Remember, “weebles wobble, but they don’t fall down!”). There are so many amazing things going on around both churches…be sure to check out the announcements and join us! You are ALWAYS welcome!

Announcements:
