GREAT NEWS from the MS Youth!!!

We purchased the animals for the MS Bible Study kids tonight.  After delivering 70+ dozen cookies they ended up with $870.  They purchased a heifer, a llama, a pig, 3 rabbits, a flock of chicks (10-50 chicks), and some honeybees.  Heifer International will determine which families need these animals the most and disperse them accordingly.  Many of their animals go to needy families in Africa and South America.  Thank you for all your support.  The kids would appreciate it if you could add something to the bulletin sometime thanking everyone for their donations. We are now talking about our next project being some community service within Japan.  Any ideas you may have we’d love to hear!

Thanks, Julie & Kristi & the MS Youth

January 6th text:

Ephesians 3:1-12

3:1 This is the reason that I Paul am a prisoner for Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles– 

3:2 for surely you have already heard of the commission of God’s grace that was given me for you, 

3:3 and how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I wrote above in a few words, 

3:4 a reading of which will enable you to perceive my understanding of the mystery of Christ. 

3:5 In former generations this mystery was not made known to humankind, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit: 

3:6 that is, the Gentiles have become fellow heirs, members of the same body, and sharers in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 

3:7 Of this gospel I have become a servant according to the gift of God’s grace that was given me by the working of his power. 

3:8 Although I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given to me to bring to the Gentiles the news of the boundless riches of Christ, 

3:9 and to make everyone see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; 

3:10 so that through the church the wisdom of God in its rich variety might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. 

3:11 This was in accordance with the eternal purpose that he has carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord, 

3:12 in whom we have access to God in boldness and confidence through faith in him.
