Pastor's Post for May

Exodus 1:12 (NLT) “But the more the Egyptians oppressed them, the more the Israelites multiplied  and spread, and the more alarmed the Egyptians became.” “Have you ever felt worn down?” Do you get overwhelmed by the current “biases” against those who believe in Jesus and the Bible? Yes, I do too. Trials are proof that God is at work in you and this world. I was reminded in my devotion this morning about the time the Egyptians tried to wear down the Hebrew people by forcing them into slavery. Egypt was afraid because their numbers were multiplying drastically and they were fearful that they would take them over.  You would think that slavery and harsh treatment would have caused God’s people to submit to Egypt, but actually they grew stronger. When you are burdened or mistreated, you may feel defeated. However, remember that resistance and struggle will cause your faith to grow.

National Day of Prayer

  The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in  A merica and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer has great significance for us as a nation as it enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. It stands as a call for us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people. The unanimous passage of the bill establishing the National Day of Prayer as  an  annual  event,  signifies that prayer is as  important to our nation today as it  was in the beginning.   We will be joining Christians around the world by gathering on the front steps of our sanctuary   on   Thursday, May 6th at Noon for prayer over our nation   as   one   voice united.

As One Prayer Rally

  Our church will be joining with other local churches within our association to pray. We all can see that the need for prayer these days is great. Our children, families and churches are coming under attack and people are hurting due to the effect of sin. We must take our cares to the Lord more than complaining about all that is wrong   with the world. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and refreshments as we pray together at the beautiful Bent Creek Farm. This is the 5th year for this event and it just gets better. This is for all ages. There will be times of singing, times of singing, testimonies and prayer. You do not want to miss this.
