Be A Person of The Word - Our New Wednesday Night Series

We could easily talk for hours about the way things have progressed in the world over the years. Through technology we are more connected to our world than ever before. Before the “cable” generation, we watched three or four channels on the television, received our news from the daily paper, 6 or 11 o'clock news. If we wanted to hear what other people thought about an issue we would read the editorial section of the newspaper. Fast forward to today where we have more channels than anyone could possibly watch on our television. We get our news whenever we want it from 24/7 news channels, our computers, social media,and even our phones. If there is ANYTHING our world does NOT lack, it is the availability of information. Our challenge today is to sort through all the noise and listen to the news that is important, to base our life on CREDIBLE GODLY Instruction. How do we cut through the noise? How do we tune our ears to the frequency where God is broadcasting His life giving truth?

We must be a person of the Word [The Bible]. Much like a mother can hear the cries of their child in a crowded mall, so can God hear us in the midst of our crowded lives. Focusing on God takes work, discipline and determination. God speaks to us in three ways which are prayer, Godly people and most importantly His Word [The Bible]. When all three match up, we can know God is speaking to us. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be in a series entitled, “Person of the Word”. If you would like help in becoming more efficient and equipped in your study of the Bible, I invite you to join us on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary.

In Him,

Pastor James

Confession, Reflection and The Lord's Supper

Yesterday, our church observed the ordinance of the Lord''s Supper or Communion as some call it.  Our church is blessed to have a committee that prepares this for us on every fifth Sunday.  This practice is designed to take us back in our hearts and minds to that dreadful night where Jesus sat at a table with His disciples to prepare them for His pending crucifixion .   The purpose of the Lord's Supper is not for us to go through the motions, but to remember all that Christ did for us.  His body was broken and blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.  Communion is a time to reflect, appreciate and give honor to Jesus for what He endured for us. This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
