Jesus was born to die for you

Welcome

 

Let me personally invite you and your family to be a part of our warm and loving fellowship. Each week we are raising a new awareness of our relationship with God, among ourselves, our families and our friends. We want to help you connect to everyday life situations with the power and reality of the true and living God. So, if you are looking for a place to make new friends and connect with God, come join us.

Our Mission

 

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and to love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Service Times:

Sunday School at 9:45 AM

 

Morning worship at 10:45 AM.

 

Each year I have people who choose a word that describes their life's journey.  My word is "Trust".   God has already put me to the test.  Did I really mean it when I said, "Lord I do trust you."  Add to that a daily reading of God's Word.  See what God will do for you.  Love to have you join us on Sunday morning.

Praying this time finds you well and healthy.  We are living in a new day with new challenges.  I just heard that President Trump is asking for the nation to continue the practice of “social-distancing” through April 30, in hopes of being back to “normal” by June 1st.  Let us pray we can do this sooner. 

 

Prayer requests:

  • Bill and Sandy, Kara’s cousin who lives in a suburb of New York city.

  • Wayne and Faye, retired, former church members living in New Jersey with their daughter and son-in-law.

  • Pray for an end to the spread of this virus.  Pray for healing for all those affected by this virus.

  • Pray for teachers and students at all educational levels.  This virus has had a personal affect on our family.  We have a grandson and a daughter-in-law that were to graduate from college in May.  One of our church students was to graduate from junior college and high school within two weeks of each other.

  • Pray for government leaders (Governors and Mayors) and Congressional leadership.  (1 Timothy 2: 2)  Pray for all those making decisions related to public health and safety.  Pray for a spirit of bipartisanship as lawmakers work together to protect people.

  • Pray for church leaders.  Pastors around the country are making difficult decisions related to public worship and the safety of their members.  Pray that pastors will have wisdom to faithfully shepherd the congregations under their care, even if they are unable to physically gather (1 Peter 5: 2). 

  • Pray for the vulnerable.  Authorities tell us that immunocompromised people are especially at risk as the virus spreads.  Pray for the protection for the elderly, diseased, and those facing financial hardship.  Pray for students who are being required to vacate university and college housing with very little notice.  Over the next few weeks, there will be opportunities to meet tangible needs.  Pray that God’s people meet these opportunities with wisdom and grace (Mat 25: 35-40).

  • Pray for health care workers and first responders.  In the midst of the crisis, doctors, nurses, health care workers, and first responders are working long hours to provide much needed medical care to those affected by the virus.  Pray for energy and stamina as they work.  And pray for their families who are making tremendous sacrifices as well.  (Kara’s nephew’s wife is a public health worker).

  • Pray for honest reporting.  Christians should pray for those in the news media.  Pray that reporters and journalists would accurately report updates about the status of the virus, and not seek to peddle conspiracies, politicize the threat, or stoke fear where it is unwarranted.

  • Pray for a spirit of generosity.  During this time, church es will face a loss of income at a time when there are many opportunities to meet physical needs. Pray that God’s people will manifest a spirit of generosity and sacrificially give of their time and resources to meet needs that will arise (2 Corinthians 9: 6-8).

  • Pray for a posture of trust.  Scripture teaches us that God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1: 7).  Pray for enduring faith during this season of heightened fear, anxiety, and confusion.  Appropriate precautions should be taken, but Christians must continue to rely on God and trust His purposes and plans. (Romans 8: 28).

  • Pray for the spread of the gospel.  In this time of great anxiety, pray that God’s people would be ready to meet the world with the comfort and hope that only the good news of Jesus Christ can offer.

  • President Donald Trump

  • Vice President Mike Pence, also the White House Coronavirus Task Force

  • Dr. Anthony Fauci (Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease)

  • Secretary Steven Mnuchin (Treasury)
