Pastor's Post for May




We all encounter events that change our lives. Some are pleasant and others not so much. Whether it be looking into the eyes of your newborn child, puppy kisses on a tough day, a health crisis or tragic accident, they affect the way you live for better or for worse.  

The Bible say that, “For He gives His sunlight to both the evil and the good, and He sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.” (Matthew 5:45).

I have always taken this to mean that good and bad fall upon everyone, however God is my umbrella. As we move on from the Easter season, do not pack up your faith in Jesus our risen Savior with your Easter decorations and crafts. Because of Jesus our lives are changed.

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Once you accept Christ as your ultimate forgiver and leader in your life you can never go back to the way you used to operate. Why would you want to? Live out the power of your faith today. Spend time with Jesus and tell others about Him! Because of Jesus, you and I will never be the same!

In Him,

Pastor James

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
