Praises and Prayers

As we continue to study the impact of The Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives, we must always remember to seek Him in prayer. As we commune with God through the power of the  Holy Spirit, we will grow closer to God and to our goal of becoming more like Christ. Seek God through His word and through prayer.

Praises and Prayers

As we learned from John 14 this past Sunday, Jesus PROMISED to answer our prayers when we pray in His name. We also learned that we have the power of God Himself, in the form of The Holy Spirit, LIVING INSIDE us as believers.  He is our advocate, helper, counselor, friend, and constant companion—we are NEVER alone.  So, be encouraged, pray boldly, seek first His Kingdom, and enjoy the abundant life which God wants us to have.  Read John chapter 14 again, then start praying!  :)

Praises and Prayers

As we continue to study prayer in our Sunday morning services, it is imperative that we “practice what we preach.”  So far we have looked at how to pray with a bold heart and how to pray with a loving heart. In short, we should be confident in our prayers because we KNOW that God will hear the prayer of the righteous and we should pray compassionately knowing that God has commanded us to LOVE one another.  Our prayers are POWERFUL because, rightly done, they invoke the most powerful force in the universe, our Creator God.  I challenge you to pray with joy and great faith having full assurance that your prayers are pleasing to God.  Praise Him and do everything for His glory!

A Lifestyle of Prayer

This Sunday I will begin a new sermon series on powerful praying. Many of us have seen first-hand a “miracle” cure or deliverance as an answer to prayer.  I  want all of us to embrace the power of prayer and to learn to use this tool as the direct link to tapping into the power which God promised all His children.  The power of prayer WILL change lives – both yours and others.  Come join me this Sunday as we learn to pray boldly and kick off this study by observing Holy Communion.

Praise and Prayers

An Alaskan summer brings us so much for which to be grateful!  The long days of light and magnificent scenery refreshes our souls and lifts our spirits.  As we enjoy this beautiful blessing, let us always remember to give thanks to the Creator from Whom all blessings flow!

Acts of Obedience

I truly hope you are able to join us this Sunday as we have a very special service planned!  The service is called, “Acts of Obedience” and we will be discussing and then conducting three Acts of Obedience during the service. We will have a Parent-Child dedication ceremony, a commissioning for missions, and a baptismal ceremony.  I urge you to come and celebrate this special service with us – it is sure to be a blessing to all! 

Don’t forget Clean-up day at church Saturday!  And remember to P.U.S.H. (Pray Until Something Happens)!

A Memorial Event!

This weekend kicks off the “official” start of Summer as we celebrate Memorial Day on Monday.  It is a time to remember all of our fallen Servicemembers who gave their all so that we might enjoy freedom to live in a nation which was founded by Godly men on biblical  principles (for more information, please join our Wednesday Evening study of our American Heritage).  Our dedicated men and women in uniform truly know the meaning of love.  Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13). As we prepare to kick off summer, let us remember those who have made that freedom possible by making the ultimate sacrifice.

Please join us Sunday as we celebrate and worship The Creator who gave us this beautiful land and the freedom to enjoy it.

Don’t Forget to Pray for Mothers!

Yes, this Sunday is Mother’s Day!  There is no greater way to honor your mother than to attend church.  I urge you to join us for Sunday School at 10 and Worship Service at 11 – I guarantee your mother would approve and that you will be blessed!  Mothers are a blessing from God, but (The) Father knows best: (Ephesians 6:1-2).  :)
