“Invaluable Perspectives on Life” – August 29th, 2018

“Invaluable Perspectives on Life” – August 29th, 2018

Dear Church Family, One of the most underrated obstacles that we face is discouragement. When we are discouraged we lose heart, we want to quit, and we lose the enthusiasm that is necessary to perform with excellence. We all have been discouraged and long to spend as little time in that condition as possible. This Sunday morning we will be looking at some perspectives that will help us to not lose heart. The message is from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. The title is “Invaluable Perspectives on Life.” Other verses that will prepare you for our time in God’s Word are Psalm 138:3, I Corinthians 3:13-15, and II Kings 6:14-17. Each one of those 3 passages illustrates a perspective that we will look at on Sunday. May the Lord encourage your heart today as you seek to serve Him. God bless you and have a great day! In Light of His Grace, Pastor...

“Courage for Christ” – August 22nd, 2018

Dear Church Family, We all have fears. Some are legitimate. If we are honest with ourselves, most are not. The real issue is having the courage to overcome our fears in order to move things forward and to do what is proper and right. This is especially true when it comes to being a verbal and nonverbal witness for Jesus. On Sunday we will be looking at II Corinthians 4:13-15. The sermon title is “ Courage for Christ.” Other verses that are helpful to understand the gist of the message are I Thessalonians 1:6-8, I Corinthians 15:58, and I Corinthians 4:12-13. I am looking forward, as always, to share with you the heart and mind of our great God. We also will enjoy our annual church picnic at Price Park at 12:30 pm. It is always a joy to be with the church family for our annual picnic. I hope to see you on Sunday. Until then, may God bless you as you live for Jesus! For His Name, Pastor...

Dear Church Family, One of the things that God’s people long for is to see His power put on display. We eagerly await Him to do what only He can do.

When does God tend to unleash His power? On Sunday morning we will be looking at 2 Corinthians 4:7-12. The sermon title is “ The Power of Ministry.” Other verses that will prepare you for our time In God’s Word are Zechariah 4:5-8, 2 Corinthians 12:7-10, and James 4:14.

“Ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ: Part III” – August 4th, 2018

Dear Church Family, Last night I was in Canton for First Friday activities. It was enjoyable as I supported the church drama team as they performed a drama of the fall of man and the crucifixion and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It was well done and many people stopped to watch the presentation. It is increasingly challenging to be a light in a spiritually dark world. This Sunday we will be looking at 2 Corinthians 4:5-6. The sermon title is “Ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ: Part III.” Other verses that will prepare you for our time in God’s Word are Galatians 1:10, I Corinthians 10:31, and Psalm 86:12. It will be a treat for me to share God’s Word with you. Enjoy the day that the Lord has made. God bless you and stay close to Jesus! For His Glory, Pastor...

“The Power of the New Covenant” – July 11th, 2018

Dear Church Family, All of us have been embarrassed at some time. It is not generally considered to be a favorite emotion that we experience. We usually try to avoid embarrassment at all costs. It is a comfort to know that some people, ideas, and groups will rarely cause us embarrassment. The Lord Jesus and the new covenant are certainly at the top of that list. On Sunday we will be studying 2 Corinthians 3:12-18. The  title of the message is “The Power of the New Covenant.” Other verses that will prepare you for the message are Acts 4:29, Colossians 1:13, and Galatians 4:19.
