The Cullowhee United Methodist Women asked the church family to contribute favorite Bible verses and donations to honor our graduating high school seniors. We were overwhelmed by your generosity–we received a total of $1175! The money will be divided between Cullowhee Kids (where many of the graduates began their educational journey) and United Methodist Women (where it will fund many educational programs, including a school that was one of the first projects begun by UMW more than 150 years ago). The Bible verses are posted here, Thank you for keeping our mission dollars on the move even while we were being “safer at home.”
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:105 (KJV), Bonnie Stephens
The LORD will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life;
The LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Psalm 121:7-8 (NIV), Susie Ray
Trust in Jehovah with all your heart and do not lean upon your own understanding. In all your ways take notice of him and he himself will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NWT), Joyce Turk
He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord!
Isaiah 26:3 (TLB), Elaine White
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV), Jo Ann Black
What can we bring to the LORD? What kind of offerings should we give him? Should we bow before God with offerings of yearling calves? Should we offer him thousands of rams and ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Should we sacrifice our firstborn children to pay for our sins? No, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:6-8 (NLT), Penny Graham
You must love the Lord your God with all your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second like it is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22:37-39 (paraphrase), Linda Bingham
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
John 16:33 (NIV), Lisa Bacon
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 6-7 (NLT), Carol Smoot
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:12-13 (NIV), Sue Heckert
