SUNDAY SMILE

A man called up a bible believing church and the church secretary answered the call. The man on the other end of the line said, "I’d like to speak to the head hog." The secretary replied, "That wasn’t a very nice thing to say about our beloved minister, Rev. Jones." Again, the man replied, "I’d like to speak to the head hog, because I’m going to donate £75,000.00 to the church. She replied, "Hold on a moment, I think the big fat pig just walked in." 

 

QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK

Adults: When has your faith in the living Christ helped you overcome fear?

Children:   What could you do this Easter season to help someone feel less afraid?
