August 14th News: Am I a Christian? Part 2

August 12, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

One question that every Christian will deal with as they navigate through this life is this: Am I really a Christian?

John addresses this point with a couple of “tests” we can apply to help us along. We talked about the first one a couple of weeks ago (don’t remember? No worries– I will review ; ) ) Sunday we will talk about the second.

To prepare for this week, read 1 John 2:3-11 and see if you can discover the two questions– or tests– of true faith.

I want to thank Cooper Browning and Dallas Stamper for filling in for me as I was away the last couple of weeks– and all of you who made our services run smoothly. I also want to thank those of you who were praying for us as we were dealing with a broken down vehicle. God is good… But that doesn’t mean your car won’t die one day.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Do you need prayer? Our prayer ministry wants to pray for you! Look for Prayer Request cards by the offering basket. Fill one out and put it in the offering basket– or find the prayer table after the service and pray with someone.

January 3rd News: Prayer for the New Year

January 2, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

This Sunday, we will ring in 2016 with Prayer for the New Year.

This is a great time to remember the foundational truths of our faith and the importance of prayer in all that we do.

We will also be celebrating the Lord’s Supper together.

Finally, the will be a church brunch following the service. If you are able, bring something to share with everyone– or just bring yourself and enjoy food and fellowship together!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

December 20th News: LOVE

December 18, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

This Sunday we conclude our Advent series called The Word Became Flesh.

 

Last week we saw that God was revealed to the world, he was rejected by many, and received by some.

This week, we will discover some truths about God that make Christianity unique among all the religions of the world. In his great love, God comes to us so that we can have life with him. We could never get to God on our own, so he came to us.

To prepare, read John 1:14-18.

Christmas Eve Service:  Thursday, December 24th @ 5:30pm.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: Philippians

Paul write the letter to the Philippians while he is in prison- probably chained to a guard at all times. He says this is a good thing. How does he have such a perspective? And, more importantly, how can we have that perspective when we face trials in our lives?

May 11th News- JOY in Partnership

May 8, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

This week we will be continuing our series called Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

Last week we learned that the foundation for a life of JOY is found in understanding and receiving the grace of God. Once that happens, you can experience both peace with God and others.

This week we will see what happens once you understand your identity in Christ: you are bound together with other believers in an incredible and supernatural relationship called the church. The church allows all believers to discover and share a JOY in partnership with each other that is different from most of the other relationships we experience.

To prepare for this week, read Philippians 1:3-11.

I also want to remind you that it is not too late to jump into our new Wednesday night study called The Grace Walk Experience. This 8-week study is a fantastic opportunity to explore God’s grace together. If you are interested, pick up a book from me this Sunday (there are daily assignments–but you can catch up quickly!) The books are $15.00 each.

Grace and peace,

Doug

Spiritual Gifts: Part 5– The Ultimate Goal

As we close our study of spiritual gifts we are reminded about their ultimate goal. They are not an end in and of themselves– they are a means to something bigger, better, and more beautiful.
