Pastor's Post

 

Dear church family,

 I write this with a full heart just before our third of four nights of VBS. God is moving in so many ways through the life of our church. This modest article cannot contain all that He is doing. I have always known that our church is a body of loving people that love others and their community. After many years of prayers and preaching we have seen many of our older loved one’s graduate to their heavenly home as well as God doing a new work in our young families. VBS has been a perfect example of that. Many of our older members charted the way for years in serving as leaders and teaching children. Some are still doing so but we are seeing another wave of leadership emerge in our young families. Children are hearing the gospel message of Jesus Christ and their parents are learning the blessings of using their gifts to serve Him through the church. God is good and He is not finished with us. Keep praying, Keep supporting, Keep serving and watch what God will do!

 (1 Corinthians 12:6 NLT) God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.

 (2 Corinthians 3:18b NLT) And the Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.

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
