2 Corinthians 4:16 18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Psalm 9:9 10
The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You, Oh LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in His holy habitation.

A word about Maranatha Bible Church
Gay and her family became a part of MBC in 2011 and immediately felt at home here thanks to the solid Bible teaching, sound theology, and warm fellowship of like minded believers. After
Ken’s cancer diagnosis in 2015 and subsequent death in 2017, they were completely overwhelmed by the loving care and support of MBC. They are truly family.
