Question one of the Westminster Larger Catechism asks: “What is the chief and highest end of man?”  The answer is: "Man's chief and highest end is to glorify God and fully to enjoy Him forever."  People ask, “What is the meaning of life?”  This is the answer to that question.  We are to glorify God.  This is the key to all human happiness—to eat, sleep, and think God, to devote our entire lives to God.


The trip to Bonclarken planned for July 27 by the Women of the Church is cancelled.
