According to Sheep101.info, "Sheep are mentioned in the Bible more than 500 times, more than any other animal. The prominence of sheep in the Bible grows out of two realities. Sheep were important to the nomads and agricultural life of the Hebrews and similiar peoples. Secondly, sheep are used throughout the Bible to symbolically refer to God's people."

Our pastor shared President Trump's proclamation during this morning's service. I say, "AMEN!"
Praying you and your family experience God's supernatural grace, peace, protection, and health during this difficult time
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence.
In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration;
but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]!
For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and
have conquered it for you.] John 16:33 AMPC
The Lord is returning soon to bring His bride home.
We'll be worshipping like this forever. Amen-- Come, Lord Jesus!
On Sunday, our pastor's son, Pastor Dan Feola shared this message about his struggles with anxiety and depression. He offered a message of HOPE to those who may be suffering also. As someone who's been there, it's one of the best messages I've ever heard! Some highlights:
• "You are OK, even if you're struggling with deep, dark feelings."
• "Don't judge your worth on some else's Facebook feed."
• "You don't have to die to end your pain!"
Amen, Pastor Dan!
