Dance practice has resumed on Thursdays at 6 PM. If you are interested, please come for a time of fun and learning basic steps and beginner dances.
Jack, Andy, and Dane think it is too soon to begin Oneg and afternoon services. Our plan is to begin June 20th, if we do not have a spike in Covid-19 cases for zip code 36695. Resuming Tuesday Bible Studies has not been determined. Thank you for your patience during this time of testing.
1 By David:
Adonai is my light and salvation; whom do I need to fear?
Adonai is the stronghold of my life; of whom should I be afraid? 2 When evildoers assailed me to devour my flesh, my adversaries and foes, they stumbled and fell. 3 If an army encamps against me, my heart will not fear; if war breaks out against me, even then I will keep trusting. 4 Just one thing have I asked of Adonai; only this will I seek: to live in the house of Adonai all the days of my life, to see the beauty of Adonai and visit in his temple. 5 For He will conceal me in His shelter on the day of trouble, He will hide me in the folds of His tent, He will set me high on a rock. 6 Then my head will be lifted up above my surrounding foes, and I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, sing praises to Adonai. 7 Listen, Adonai, to my voice when I cry; show favor to me; and answer me. 8 “My heart said of You, ‘Seek my face.’” Your face, Adonai, I will seek. 9 Do not hide Your face from me, don’t turn Your servant away in anger. You are my help; don’t abandon me; don’t leave me, G-d my savior. 10 Even though my father and mother have left me, Adonai will care for me. 11 Teach me Your way, Adonai; lead me on a level path because of my enemies — 12 Don’t give me up to the whims of my foes; for false witnesses have risen against me, also those who are breathing violence. 13 If I hadn’t believed that I would see Adonai’s goodness in the land of the living, . . .
14 Put Your hope in Adonai, be strong,
and let Your heart take courage!
Yes, put Your hope in Adonai!
