I hope you are ready for a great weekend, I know I am. The first week of WHU is complete and it was great. I enjoyed hearing about the missionary Rick Johnson's trips to India and as he was talking I imagined I was hearing the Apostle Paul speak. He said that every time he preaches an average of 4 people come to Christ, and these are Hindu's. Rick concluded his talk by praying for our church that God would make us uncomfortable until we say yes! What a great prayer. I hope you can make the future talks we have this summer.
In 2 weeks on 7/9/16 we will have CLASS 201 - GrowthPoint! This is a class about spiritual growth - an introduction to spiritual habits you will use the rest of your life to grow closer to God. Email Mirna at firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot in this class.
Here is a great article about going when God says go.
Here is an article about 5 Ways to Climb Out of a Spiritual Rut - I am praying for you if you are in a rut.
A leadership quote from Urban Meyer
“I’ve come to learn that leadership is not automatically granted to you because of your position or your salary or the size of your office. Leadership is influence based on trust that you have earned. A leader is not someone who declares what he wants and then gets angry when he doesn’t get it. A true leader is someone who is going someplace and taking people with him, a catalyst for elite performance who enables people to achieve things they wouldn’t achieve on their own. A leader is someone who earns trust, sets a clear standard, and then equips and inspires people to meet that standard.”
Finally, have you memorized our series verse? James 1.2-3 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. (NIV)
Praying for you! Looking forward to seeing you Sunday.

Hello to all, hope you are having a good Friday and had a wonderful week. As we begin our study on the book of James I want to encourage you to memorize a Bible verse each week. This week's verse is:
James 1.2-3 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. (NIV)
Memorizing scripture is a great way to grow spiritually.
Have you done a RAK (Random Act of Kindness)? Let me know what happened, I would love to hear about it!
We had 4 people at our 101-StartingPoint class Sunday, all are interested in joining our church. Let's pray that God continues to move, and have faith that God is going to 'save' people often at WHCC.
This is a great article about how God can change lives. God has a purpose for every person!
Have you ever thought it would be easier if our church would stay the same and not grow? Read THIS and let me know what you think.
We will have our CLASS 201-GrowthPoint on July9, from 12-2.30pm. You can email Mirna to reserve your spot. Many people love God, but have never devised a plan to grow spiritually. Our CLASS 201, GrowthPoint introduces simple and healthy tools for personal spiritual growth. People who attend this class will learn how to grow daily in their faith and enjoy life with God.
And finally - because I found this after Father's Day and it made me laugh - a video for your enjoyment.
