PRAYER AND PRAISE

Please continue to pray for Judy Miller as she recovers from her open-heart surgery. The doctors are pleased with her progress, but she has a long way to go before being pain free - let alone cleared to run a marathon! Please pray that the Lord would raise up people from WHAC to bless, and welcome, and reach out to the families who will be involved with the church Kindy. Please pray for John and Nicolette, in addition to all of the Nanjans, as they welcome their new baby into their home and their hearts. Please continue to pray for the McGowans. May the Lord keep His hand upon David especially as he struggles with his many challenges. Please pray that the Lord would pave the way for the Kindy to receive all of it's approvals soon. Pray for the protection of believers amid recent developments in the Middle East, including Israel and Egypt. Pray that God will intervene and that the people of these nations will put their trust in Him.

The Community Christmas Celebration th Mark 15 December on your calendars with something bright and bold, because that's the date for our Community Christmas celebration, and you truly don't want to miss it! The evening is open to anybody who wants to come, so please feel free to invite friends and family; all we ask is that you bring a salad for 10-12 people, and a dessert.

LEARNING TO WAIT GOD'S WAY (Psalm 18:6) David was the anointed king of Israel, but before he could enjoy the realization of God's promises, he had to go through a season of testing and waiting. During this time, he was forced to hide out in caves and literally run for his life. King Saul, who was bent on David's destruction, continually hunted for him. Perhaps the Lord has given you a promise through His Word. You are ready to see it unfold, but it hasn't happened yet. Though you have waited, it seems that there is no hope on the horizon. Remember, God's timing is perfect. that if we are going to learn how to walk with Him in the daylight or the good times, we must learn first to trust Him in times of darkness.

Thank you for joining us today and you are warmly invited to stay and enjoy some morning tea.

New wine at WHAC Leading into this ministry year, the elders board at WHAC felt strongly that the Lord is calling us to address the Prayer and Fellowship as aspects of our ministry. Thankfully, He has already raised up a leader over Prayer, but we are still looking for a leader over Fellowship/Hospitality. If you love to make people feel welcome, and feel prompted to serve, please see Pastor Matt, or one of the elders today.

MINISTRIES FOR CHILDREN at WHAC


Ages 37 Ages 8 13 Our Kids Club is divided into two groups, for age appropriate lessons. These take place in the hall during the sermon. A notice will appear on the screen when it is time to dismiss your children.

At some point, each of us has waited for God's promises to come. David may have wondered when the Lord would open the door to blessing. However, he never allowed his thoughts to turn to doubts. In fact, in Psalm 18:17, 19, he praises God for the victory he knew would be his one day. "(God) delivered me from my strong enemy, and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me He brought me forth also into a broad (or spacious) place, He rescued me, because He delighted in me." When God delivers you from trial and trouble, you can be sure that He will bring you out into a spacious place of joy and delight - one that also will glorify Him and add encouragement to your life. Have you been pushing and shoving in an effort to move God on to the place where you think you should be? If so, stop and be determined to wait on God. The time you spend waiting in darkness will one day be rewarded by the Father of lights (James 1:17).
