 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 March our focus is making the effort to deepen the fellowship of our church by a greater understanding of our heritage from the events of the Passover, both in the Old Testament and the New Testament. We are preparing our hearts for the great joy we shall know in the celebration of Resurrection Sunday!
 
Come be with us when you can and learn with us how to make God's Pathway Straight Into Our Lives.

Sunday Morning Passage
 
31  Since it was the preparation day, the Jews did not want the bodies to remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special day). They requested that Pilate have the men’s legs broken and that their bodies be taken away. 32  So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man and of the other one who had been crucified with Him. 33  When they came to Jesus, they did not break His legs since they saw that He was already dead. 34  But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and at once blood and water came out. 35  He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe. His testimony is true, and he knows he is telling the truth. 36  For these things happened so that the Scripture would be fulfilled: Not one of His bones will be broken. 37  Also, another Scripture says: They will look at the One they pierced.
 
John 19:31-37 (HCSB)
