(Ephesians 3:20-21)
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Dear Church Family,

God has been gracious to us all, strengthened us when we had no strength, and carried us when we could not walk.  He has sent many to minister to us and also gave us the opportunity to give Him glory to those He would place in our paths.  That being said, He continues to do a great work in our lives and our church.  As Paul encourages us in scripture above, he says,  “God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

I am truly excited as I hope you are to be a part of this church family.  In  recent days God has given myself and many others a fresh fire to seek Him and be expectant of His works. Our leadership has prayerfully set a goal for our church to reach an attendance of 70 in our Bible Study Groups in 2017.  Why Bible study?  Bible Study is a small group environment where members of all ages can connect with the church.  People will pray for you, encourage you and give you a chance to know your church family better.  

Also, Bible Study in a small group setting allows for more reflection, questions and discussion with others regarding the scriptures.  Bible Study Small Groups are the heart of our church and it is our prayer to see others come to know the same.  Also, the church is only as strong as its small groups.  Increased attendance in Bible Study Groups will impact the involvement in all of our other services and ministries.  If you are a regular in a Bible Study group, continue to thrive and pray that others may come to know the benefits you share with others.  For most, they are just waiting to be asked.  May we be faithful to invite and God be faithful to draw!

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
