CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
1 Peter 2:9 – we are God’s chosen people.  We are to be different than those that are not, i.e. non-Christians.  Do you act differently than non-believers in your day-to-day?  Would others recognize you as a follower of Christ?  If you answered “No”, then you have some changes to make.  If you act like two different people on Sunday and the other days of the week, you cannot be one of God’s chosen people.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Hardship Hill coming up soon.
