There are no kids' activities this week on Wednesday. Our kids and sponsors need time to pack for camp. (Don't forget towels.)

Student Ministries "Break"
Sunday night BREAK will be taking a break during the month of July. This will give our sponsors a much-needed break. I know this is breaking your kids' hearts, but it will be back in August.

Sermon Notes

Love Is…Always
1 Corinthians 13:7
July 7, 2024

[Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:7

Love always protects.

Love always protects.
Love provides a safe space.

Love always trusts.

Love always trusts.
Loves gives the benefit of the doubt.

Love always hopes.

Love always hopes.
Loves refuses to take failure as final.

Love always perseveres.
Love always does the right thing even when it’s the hard thing.

1 Corinthians 13:8-13
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
