P��� 8 ���.D�����M��������.��� First Assembly of God answers the toughest God Questions Quartzsite, AZ – Got a tough question about God that’s stumped you for years? Like, “Why does a good God allow suffering?” or, “Do all religions lead to one God?” Beginning Sunday, May 29th, Pastor Bruce Swart of First Assembly of God, 665 W. Tyson, Quartzsite, will begin a special series called, “The God Questions” providing a carefully researched exploration of tough spiritual questions that many people ask. “This special series provides a unique opportunity for our community to ask their questions in a safe, loving atmosphere where truth will prevail,” said Pas- tor Bruce. “In light of The Da Vinci Code, The Gospel of Judas and The Jesus Papers, more and more people have questions about God and spiritual matters than ever before,” he said. “Over the years, I’ve found that both churchgoers and those who usually don’t go to church have lots of questions, so I’ve dedicated these next few weeks to inviting seekers and their questions to our church, so that together we can fi nd the answers. And who knows? Those answers just may change a few lives.” According to Pastor Bruce, “The God Questions is a 6-week spiritual journey that explores such diffi cult questions as • • • • • • Is God Real? Is the Bible True? Do all roads lead to Heaven? How can a good God allow suffering? What happens to me when I die? If God would grant me just one wish, what would I ask for? In addition to the weekend services, there are optional small groups meeting on Wednesday evenings that give people the opportunity to study more in- depth or ask their questions in a less formal atmosphere. “Come join us,” he urged, “no question is too tough!” For more information, call 928-927-5808.

Things like oil, sand, gravel, lime and ore. We build higher and higher. We send the residue from oil into the air. I once asked a learned man. He said, “The earth adjusts its self.” I ask, “How much?” Was Japan a mild hiccup? I should ask the quail.

According to research published by Americans for the Arts, children who regularly participate in a comprehen- sive arts program are four-times more likely to be elected to class offi ce, four- times more likely to be in a math or sci- ence fair, and four-times more likely to win an award for writing. If you believe that participation in the arts can enhance a child’s life, consider sponsoring a child this summer. How? Stop by the AWC Quartzsite Learning Center and sign up to be a sponsor by completing a Sponsor Billing Request Form. Once the child registers, you will re- ceive a bill for the tuition ($27.50). Another option for helping with the art program is to simply donate $5.00 for materials. These donations will allow children participating in the Town of Quartz- site Recreation Department Summer Program to take a class in either Art or Jewelry Making. The AWC Quartzsite Learning Cen- ter is located at 695 N. Kofa Ave. in Quartzsite. For more information, you can call the center at (928) 927-8299. Our goal is to fi nd sponsors for 20 chil- dren by June 6th.
