Sunday Evening Praise This Sunday Night April 7

Image
On Sunday night, April 7th, we will be having an evening of praise. This is an opportunity for anyone – young or old – to use the talents or abilities God has given them to praise and worship His name. Whatever gift God has given you – singing, playing an instrument, interpretive dance, poetry, drama, comedy, etc.  We have some great people lined up. It will be a great night of worship!  Don't miss it.

True, A New Sermon Series

Image
I could not be more excited for our next sermon series. Over the next few week we will be discovering biblical truths from the greatest sermon ever preached, "The Sermon On The Mount" as found in Matthew 5-7. Jesus' first sermon on the Mount of Olives would set the standard for a new day in the worship of God. Jesus was preparing to change everything. In a world that is based on opinion polls, feelings, and political correctness it is crucial for us to get back to true Christianity. Discover what it felt like to be the disciples hearing the first message of their new leader following their initial calling. Jesus was preparing them and all who would follow for a life not of religious works but faith in action, deed and heart. Please join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am or via sermoncast on our webpage. Take this journey with us. Let's get back to true Christianity.

In Him,

Pastor James

The Our Light Shine Bright Again.

Image
After some time of having no lights on our steeple, a group of gifted men got our lights shining again.  We are blessed to have men in our church that can get on our roof and handle the tough jobs that many cannot.  This time James Branyon used his roofing skills to get the lights shining again on the steeple as well as patch a few places.  We are so grateful for our men that are making great improvments to our facillities.  It is definitely their ministry.




Greater Things Are Ahead

Image
It is amazing to see the progress God has blessed us with in recent months. Many of you are actively sharing your faith, studying God’s word and being faithful to serve Him to the best of your ability. Please know that you ARE making a difference. As we begin April continue praying for God to give you more opportunities to share the gospel in word and deed as the sun stays out longer, the weather gets warmer and the church continues to grow. Continue to remember our Youth Minister search team as they continue to pray and work towards finding God’s man for this position. We know he will arrive in His time. There are some awesome opportunities for us in 2013. Our leadership and congregation must keep sharing the Gospel and building His kingdom at the forefront of our hearts. May we continue to be faithful in the little things, so God will bring us greater things!
