Welcome to the Stanley Seventh-day Adventist Church website!

Our website is new and it will take some time for us to add all of the content we would like. You can check our calendar for activities.

Until we have more content of our own, we welcome you to check out some of the articles listed at the left under Family First and Staying Young. 
 
We will be adding information on the ministries page that will let you know some ways that the church may serve you or that you can become involved in serving others.
 
We hope that you will join us for worship on Saturday morning or attend one of the other activities listed on our calendar.

Daily Scripture Verse
Verse of the Day - Hebrews 12:5
And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: "My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you... — Hebrews 12:5

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When I was young, I always acted as if I hated discipline. It was part of the game. Now that I am older, I am so thankful that my parents loved me enough to discipline me strongly, to guide me lovingly, and encourage me repeatedly. This "discipline and training of God" has given me so many blessings. Now if I can just learn to recognize and appreciate the Lord's discipline in my life the same way! The lack of love is not hate, but indifference. The opposite of concern is an unwillingness to discipline. Thank God that he loves us and knows us enough to be involved in our lives and discipline us in the direction of heaven.

My Prayer...

Father in heaven, please help me to recognize your discipline and correction in my life. I want to live for you with an undivided heart, pleasing you in word, thought, and deed. I confess, however, that sometimes my heart is rebellious or my resolve is weak. I thank you for helping me recognize my loss of spiritual direction through your loving discipline. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
