Thought For Sunday As We Go Into The Weekend


As God is preparing the message for Sunday's "Facebook Live" Worship I wanted to share a thought with you.  The title will be "Press On Instead of Feeling Oppressed" from Philippians 3.  Remember this . . .

I have great news for you today Christian!

Put your hand on your chest and feel the air go in and out of your lungs.  Feel the pulse on your neck or your wrist.  Look at what is around you! Look at “Who” is within you!   You and I are alive, and given another opportunity to experience all that God has for us!

Philippians 3:14 New Living Translation

"I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us."

I look forward to worshiping with you all Sunday and unpacking this with you.

There will be some friendly faces helping out this week too :)  Make sure your kiddos watch the beginning, Amy Fortner will share a word just for them.  Enjoy your weekend as much as you can and keep pressing on!

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
