 “God told Samuel, “Looks aren’t everything. Don’t be impressed with his looks and stature. I’ve already eliminated him. God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; God looks into the heart.” -  1 Samuel 16:17 (MSG)
This week we begin a new sermon series looking at lessons from the life of David. David, shepherd boy, anointed one, King. David's story is a story of ups and downs. David is called, a person after God’s own heart in the Scriptures. In this first week, we enter the classic story of David and Goliath, perhaps the most famous battle not fought between two armies, but between two people.  

This story seems so familiar we might wonder what we can learn. Could it be that we have missed the point of the story? I invite you to read 1 Samuel chapter 17. If you have time take a few minutes and watch the Ted Talk by Malcom Gladwell and he will offer a new perspective on this story.

I look forward to seeing you in worship online or in-person this Sunday. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues with the Delta Variant and new CDC guidelines, know that we will continue to worship both online and in-person. We invite you to be a faithful witness as you love your neighbor and get vaccinated. We, as Wesleyan followers of Jesus, seek to Do No Harm. You may choose to wear a mask to protect yourself and others. Hand sanitizing stations are at the entrances of each worship area. Know that you can worship online, In the Lot at 5:30pm or in the building at 10am and 11am on Sundays.  
Grace and peace.
Rev Dr. Duane A Anders (he, him, his)

Mirror Image - Volunteers & Donations Needed

The mission of Mirror Image is to provide hygiene products to homeless or otherwise disadvantaged students in the Boise School District. Every year, we serve as many as 200 students. DID YOU KNOW? Hygiene items cannot be purchased with food stamps, and many food banks do not supply hygiene products.
As we get ready for the start of school, volunteers are needed in two areas: prepare hygiene packets for junior high and high school students, and to make deliveries to those schools. As this mission is solely supported by our congregation, donations of hygiene products are always needed. Click here for the list of products we need. Or, you can make monetary donations to Local Missions.

Friendship Feast - Volunteers Needed
Downtown Campus

Every Sunday & 3rd Thursday • Downtown Campus 

Do you love to cook? Do you feel called to use your love of cooking to help the hungry in our neighborhood and community? If so, we have just the thing for you! We are in need of additional cooks to include in our Friendship Feast rotation as we get ready to return to serving meals in the Fellowship Hall this fall. We expect around 75 guests to come for weekly Sunday lunches, and 3rd Thursday for dinner. You can shadow one of our experienced cooks for training and insight on how to scale up meal sizes, ideas for recipes, and cooking in the church kitchen. You’ll be backed up by many wonderful volunteers who’ve helped cook and prep meals, and are always ready to pitch in and help! For more information and insight on how to get involved in this magnificent ministry, please contact Pete Schroeder.
