St. Michael's new website is here, stmichaelscolonie.org
We need your help to keep our website up-to-date. If you are involved with a ministry, please let the office know what's happening. Call or send the details to the church office and we will post it online for everyone to know about.
You will find 'Meditating For Success' on our website under the 'Ministry' heading. The weekly Scripture verse will be posted there along with previous weeks. Memorization is really a preparation for meditation. As we meditate on Scripture, before going to sleep at night, we get the benefits and insights from the Word that God wants us to have. Our brain will work on it while we are sleeping. And in the morning, meditate before getting up. This powerful instruction from the Lord brings great spiritual results in our lives.
This week’s Scripture is from:
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Bible Translation: English Standard Version (ESV)
