From the Bulletin

Are you glad you're here? Great! Make it official..
We always love to have guests at church. Maybe you've been here long enough that you no longer consider yourself a guest; you're part of the family. But have you taken the step of making that public commitment to be an official member of the congregation? Don't worry; it's easy to do.
1) If you were previously a member of another church (any church, not just United), we can transfer your membership. Just speak with Carole Presley (Merlin), Betty Vince (Fletcher), or Bruce Fraser.
2) If you've never been a member of a church, then take the membership class. We'll meet for two sessions, two hours each. The suggestion is Sunday afternoon right after lunch, but other times are good, too, whatever works for people. Speak with Bruce.
3) BONUS! If you're already a member, but you'd like to take a "refresher course" in the membership class. Super! Speak with Bruce.

QUESTIONS
A question asked in the Bible: "Is there [any] taste in the white?"
Someone asked the question: "Isn't it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you're at church, and so short they seem when you're watching a good movie? Or 3 hours at a football game?

The Welsh Revival of 1904-1905  
Evan Roberts 1878-1951  -  An Overview of the Welsh Revival of 1904/1905 The REVIVAL of 1904-1905 resulted in over 150,000 people converted and added to churches and chapels in Wales. Lives were TRANSFORMED! Lifestyles were CHANGED! Homes and families were HEALED! Churches were packed and on FIRE with fervour and zeal!

All this happened when young people began to experience the reality of Godís divine power, and teams of young people, such as the one led by the most noted of the revivalist, EVAN ROBERTS and his revival party, travelled the country revolutionising the churches.

100 YEARS LATER ... COULD IT HAPPEN AGAIN?
Here is love, vast as the ocean, loving kindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life my ransom shed for me His precious blood,
Who His love will not remember, who can cease to sing His praise?
He shall never be forgotten through Heaven's everlasting days.
On the mount of crucifixion fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God's mercy flowed the vast and gracious tide,
Grace and love like mighty rivers poured incessant from above
Heaven's peace and perfect justice kissed a guilty world in love.
