Be encouraged.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge. Psalm 91:4

The image of God “[covering] us with his feathers” in Psalm 91:4 and in other Bible passages (see Ps. 17:8) is one of comfort and protection. The image that comes to mind is a mother bird covering her little ones with her feathers. Like a parent whose arms are a safe place to retreat from a scary storm or a hurt, God’s comforting presence provides safety and protection from life’s emotional storms.

Though we go through trouble and heartache, we can face them without fear as long as our faces are turned toward God. He is our “refuge” (91:2, 4, 9).

Copied from Our Daily Bread.


PAST:   The annual retreat was held July 20-22 at the Capernaum Lakeside Lodge.  We had 30 ladies attend for a time of study and encouragement.   “The Struggle is Real”    was a timely topic and well received.  This event is held annually the third or fourth week end in July.  It is a time to get to know your sisters in Christ a little better and to study the word of God and just rest, relax, and be refreshed.

PRESENT:   The Tuesday night ladies bible study has started up again after a short summer break.   The first session was held on August 14th at 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall. The study is under the leadership of Heidi Wallace and Serina Holloway.   The current study is “A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit “By Nikki Kozian.  This is a 12 week study of the book of Ruth.

Please join Heidi and Serina for a time of fellowship around the Word of God.   The study is held bi monthly on the second and fourth Tuesday each month.

FUTURE:  Our ladies Fall Out day retreat will be held on November 17, 2018 from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm in the fellowship hall of FBC Davenport.  Lunch will be served from noon until 1:00.   Our theme will be “Falling in Love with Jesus.” There is no charge for this event and our guest speaker will be Becky Blankenship.   Please mark your calendars,   you don’t want to miss this event.

Do you ever wonder where you fit into God’s plan?  Do you ever wonder if there really is a place for you?  Understanding what God wants to accomplish through your life is far more important than deciding what you think you can accomplish for Him.

Perhaps you have just come into our Church, or you are a new creation in Christ, or maybe you have just been reluctant to get involved with the activities of the church.

As our fellowship continues to grow, we need helpers in all areas.  I encourage you to find your gifting.   Those things that you have a passion for and use these gifts to encourage others.  God has a place for you and a particular slot that you fit into.

If you feel a call to lady’s ministry, please let me know.   We have a place for you.  Our calling is to minister to others. If we lose sight of this one precept, we lose our joy.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.  “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55:8-9

To be a Vessel God can use:

  1. Accept the way God made you.
  2. Be Emptied of self to make room for God
  3. Allow God to cleanse you, even if the process is painful.
  4. Be filled and constantly refilled with the Living Water of the Holy Spirit
  5. Pour out your life in ministry as God directs.

Upcoming Events:

  1. The Tuesday night lady’s bible study will start up again on August 14th at 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall. See Heidi Wallace or Serina Holaway for more details.
