“Tough Love for Those We Love” – July 3rd, 2019

“Tough Love for Those We Love” – July 3rd, 2019

Dear Church Family, There are some things in life that are necessary but not pleasant. Few people love going to the dentist, but it is absolutely necessary. Not many people slap other people a high five when their doctor suggests a colonoscopy. Not do we get excited about taking a sick child to the doctors though it is what is very much needed. Expressing tough love is not on most peoples’ list of favorite things to do, but it can be a crucial action that we take. On Sunday morning we will be looking at 2 Corinthians 12:19-13:4. The message title is “ Tough Love for Those We Love.” Other verses that will prepare you for our time in God’s Word are Hebrews 12:5-6, I Corinthians 5:6, and Philemon 8-12. I am looking forward to sharing this important message with you on Sunday. Until then, enjoy your Fourth of July and love others as you are loved by Jesus. Because of Him, Pastor...

“Influencing Others for Jesus” – June 26th, 2019

“Influencing Others for Jesus” – June 26th, 2019

Dear Church family, Influencing other people positively for Christ is the heart desire for anyone who knows and loves the Lord. We want others to enjoy the benefits of knowing Him now and for all eternity. That raises the question, “What are some ways that we influence others for the Lord Jesus?” On Sunday morning during the 9:00 am service we will be answering that question. The message title is “Influencing Others for Jesus.” Our text is Colossians 4:2-6. Other verses that will prepare you for our time in God’s Word are Matthew 5:16, Psalm 51:12-13, and Acts 1:12-14. I am looking forward to sharing God’s Word with you on Sunday morning. A baptism service will be the highlight of our 11:00 am service. It should be a wonderful Lord’s day. May you influence believers and unbelievers alike to love the Lord Jesus. God bless you and have a wonderful day! In His Matchless grace, Pastor...

“Loving Others Who Question Our Love” – June 19th, 2019

“Loving Others Who Question Our Love” – June 19th, 2019

Dear Church Family, Love is a wonderful but sometimes hurtful dynamic that we all navigate. It is the spice of life and we receive much fulfillment in life from those that we love. However, it can be painful when those that we love don’t respond in a proper manner. One of these inappropriate responses is when the ones that we love question our love for them. On Sunday we will be looking at 2 Corinthians 12:14-21. The title of the message is “Loving Others Who Question Our Love.” Other verses that will prepare you for our time in God’s Word are Romans 12:9-10, John 10:11, and I Thessalonians 2:5-8. I am looking forward as we continue to learn from the wonderful book of 2 Corinthians. May the Lord keep you dry as you navigate this unusually wet season. God bless you and have a great day in Jesus! In His Matchless Grace, Pastor...
