 2015 Message Theme/Series

Each Sunday Pastor Chuck will focus our attention on how the Bible teaches us to more effectively follow the Lord Jesus Christ.  We will look at how the clutter of the world can collect into our lives and begin to hinder our fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. 
Pastor Chuck will show us from the Bible how God teaches us to make His Pathway Straight Into Our Lives and what we must do to fully enjoy the uninterrupted fellowship of God in our lives today.
Each month we will take a different focus. 
In May and June our emphasis is how we can remove the clutter of our world from our families.  Pastor Chuck will lead us to look at our relationships with each other to see how the clutter of this world can take us away from God's plan for our families. 
Come be with us when you can and learn with us how to make God's Pathway Straight You Life.

Sunday Morning Passage
 41  So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about 3,000 people were added to them. 42  And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers.
43  Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44  Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45  They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need. 46  Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, 47  praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved.
Acts 2:41-47 (HCSB)
