Holidays This Week:
The Jewish Feast of Lots (Purim) is this week on February 5th and 6th. It is a time the Jewish people celebrate God’s deliverance of the Jewish people by Queen Esther. There is a day of fasting to remember the fast Esther called on Wednesday, March 4th called Ta’anith Esther. As Christians, we can also use this time to celebrate God’s deliverance to us through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Verse of the Week: 1 Corinthians 1:18 (NIV) For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
