The Cross and The Stone

Image
Easter is only four weeks away, what are you doing to prepare to celebrate it? It seemed like the day after Valentine’s day, the stores were stocking up on candy, Easter baskets, chocolate bunnies and egg dying kits. It is no surprise that stores are wanting to capitalize on this Easter season, but what are you doing to prepare for Easter? I’m sure, like many others, are preparing a worship service for Sunday that would honor everything Jesus, but what about you? What about your heart?

You see, true worship is not attending a certain time slot in a church building, Worship is a daily decision to yield our lives to His will, His way, His love. As you prepare for Easter this year I pray you keep two images in the forefront of your mind.

1) The Cross: The cross was a horrendous form of capital punishment invented by the Romans to publicly execute criminals in a very inhumane way. The pain and agony that Jesus Christ felt on that cross, gave proof of the sacrificial love He has for you!…

Thank You For The Night of Worship!

I wanted to thank all those who came out to our Jam night! I was blessed to worship with you and catch a little glimpse of heaven. I look forward to many more of these moments. - Pastor James

Two Keys To Turning Stumbling Blocks Into Stepping Stones

Image
Pastor James continues the study of Joseph tonight. Joseph finally reveals his identity to his brothers. There are two keys to turning our stumbling blocks into stepping stones.

Key 1: Nothing touches us that God does not allow or orchestrate to fulfill His purpose in our life!

Key 2: When you and I find it hard to believe God can work in our present and future, it is crucial to remember His faithfulness in our past.

Jam At The Park on February 26

Image
If you have an instrument and would like to jam with a group, come to “Jam At The Park” on Friday, February 26th at 7:00 - 8:00 pm

Bring whatever instrument you can play from a bass to a bassoon. If you can sing, bring your voice. This will be a very informal time of worship where we spend a few moments praising our great God. Some music charts will be available if needed but reading music is not a requirement. If you have friends that play, invite them. Our goal is not to only encourage our “musical” members but to reach out to other musicians. We will meet in the sanctuary. If you have any questions contact our worship leader Tammy Sanders (tammy@homelandparkbc.org)
