Church members too often expect service and never think of giving it.

    Author: Vance Havner

I heard of a man who said to the preacher, "I want to sing in your choir." The preacher replied, "But you don't belong here. Where do you have your membership?" He said, "I don't belong to any local church. I belong to the invisible church." The pastor said, "Then I suggest that you join the invisible choir."

    Author: Vance Havner

The thermometer of a church is its prayer meeting.
