Sunday rest and reflection!

Sunday March 2nd, 2014

Dear Friends,

Greetings on another Resurrection Day!  We finished our journey through the Pentateuch,  the Books of Moses.  They covered many years of our early history from God creating the earth and heavens to Moses’ home-going!   God was certainly patient with His people.  Those who would lead His people had to learn obedience and patience too.  Not even Moses got it all right!  He lost entrance into the Promised Land by losing his temper!

We have one greater than Moses–Jesus Christ!  He did get it all right!  He prayed for mercy for those who crucified Him instead of losing His temper. He is the Son of God and came to be the Captain of our Salvation and demonstrate the love of the Father.  Take time today to worship Him and offer Him the honor due Him!  He is worthy!

In His Love,  Pastor John

Sunday Rest and Reflection!

Sunday February 23rd, 2014

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the Wonderful Name of Jesus Christ!  What a wonderful day to gather with God’s people and worship our Lord!  What a privilege to call on His Name in prayer, knowing that He has told us that we can ask Him for anything and He will do it!  What exciting kingdom vision and understanding we  will gain by faith as we listen to God’s Word!   Our world will be changed as we gather to worship, pray and listen!

God bless you and your family!   May the blessings of our Lord make you rich in faith to do His will on earth as it is in Heaven!  In His Love,   Pastor John

Sunday February 16th, 2014

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ!  Our theme for February centers on connections in the family and order in the home.  God is a God who loves order.  He established authority structure in the home to provide order and protection and provision.

We gather on Sunday’s to worship the One over all authority and to honor Him for His protection, provision and wonderful hope given us by His great and precious promises.  Be sure and take time today to worship and pray!  God’s blessings flow to people in proper order under authority!

In His Love,   Pastor John

Dear Friends of Jesus,

Greetings in the Blessed Name of Jesus Christ, the final sacrifice for sins!

Today we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper and we will prepare our hearts to remember the death of our Lord and His soon return.  Through His death, we have forgiveness of sins and redemption from the curse of the Law.  Through His stripes we have healing for our bodies.  He bore the crown of thorns to relieve us from mental distress and anguish.  His hands were pierced to sanctify our work and bless it for His purposes.  His feet were pierced to sanctify our walk through this world.  His heart was pierced to cleanse our hearts and give us the gift of eternal life!

We thank God that we no longer have to offer animal sacrifices or go to a temple somewhere to meet with a priest.  We have something better!  Jesus is always there for us and His sacrifice is always enough!  He is praying for us and wants to meet with us today as we gather to worship!  Make worship with a family of God a priority today!

In His Love,

Pastor John

Sunday Rest and Reflection!

Sunday January 26th, 2014

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the Wonderful Name of Jesus!  It’s a great day to worship our Lord and gather with His people!  We have been set apart from the world and need to come apart by getting out of bed, if we are able, and assembling!  Worship is about presenting our bodies as “living sacrifices”!   There are no more lambs to slaughter because the Lamb of God has given Himself for us!  Amen and hallelujah!

May this day be marked by God’s presence and peace in your soul!  He is worthy!

In His Love,  Pastor John

Sunday rest and reflection!

January  19th, 2014

Dear Friends,

The stories of the patriarchs of Genesis show us that life back then was not much different than our day.  There were quarrels among families, favoritism, jealousy, and scheming to get ahead.  People of faith did not always get it right, but God used the circumstances and weaknesses to accomplish a bigger purpose.  I believe He is still doing that today!  Thank God for His mercy and for His promises!

As you order your day today, make God’s house and God’s Word a priority!  Set your heart to seek out His  bigger purposes for your life!  God is up to something good–no matter where you are right now or what it feels like!   God bless you and your family!

In His Love, Pastor John and Mary

Dear Friends,

We can see from our readings of the past week that connecting with God and others is not always easy!  Sin has taken a toll and caused hardness of heart, grief, and pain.  We often resist God’s will and coming to grip with this is no easy task either.  Each of us has a daily choice in front of us to choose a connection with God or to go our own way.

On this day of rest and reflection, take time to attend the church of your choice.  Worship God with all your heart and listen for His instructions and blessing!  God is good and wants to bless His people as they willingly draw near to Him.  He has promised to draw near to them!  Amen!

In His Love,  Pastor John
