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!

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
