Reflection on Lessons
At Mount Sinai, Moses experienced the presence of God for forty days and forty nights. The "glory of the Lord" settled on the mountain, and on the seventh day God called out to Moses. On the mountain God gave Moses the stone tablets inscribed with the ten commandments.

Scripture Verse "My friend, your love has made me happy and has greatly encouraged me. It has also cheered hearts of God's people." Philemon 1:7 (CEV)

The funds are distributed at the discretion of the Pastor. Donations may be designated for the Helping Hand Fund and placed in the offering plate or mailed to the church office.
