Scripture for Sunday March 11th, 2018

1 Corinthians 1:18-25

For the preaching of the cross is...

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Easter Offering
Last month, the Middletown Road Baptist Church experienced flooding in their basement when water backed up through pipes under their church due to heavy rainfall. I spoke with Pastor Jeff Kistler this past Thursday and found that their financial situation is one of need. Mrs. Kistler taught 1st Grade at NHCS for many years. I consider MRBC to be one of our sister churches. Please prayerfully consider helping their ministry in light of Acts 11:28-30 and 1 Corinthians 16:1-3.
