Faith is not just what you believe. Faith is acting on what you believe. There are many heroes of the faith in the Bible - Abraham, Joseph, Daniel, Peter and more. In our upcoming sermon series, we'll be inspired by their example and learn ways to Walk by Faith from them. But just as you can't actually learn how to walk on a tightrope by watching a YouTube video, walking in faith requires practice! So during this Easter season, we'll encourage each other to do just that. Find out how, this Sunday.
Speaking of tightrope walking, do you know what high wire artist Nik Wallenda does after he strolls across Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon before amazed and adoring fans? After the crowds fade away he walks where the crowds recently stood and quietly picks up trash. For Wallenda, this is what it takes to really "walk by faith." (Read the story HERE.)
We can follow his example and help clean up our neighborhood next Saturday, April 29, at the Great American Clean-up. Sign up or learn more about it by clicking on the picture above.

“What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use – men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men – men of prayer.”
