Sunday Morning Message


Our 2017  Message Theme is:

"The Power of the Gospel"


 In 2017  we are looking at the Power of the Gospel Message.  Each month we will focus on a different aspect of the Gospel Message and from both Old and New Testament passages we will examine what the Gospel is, how it works, what it accomplishes, and how we as Authentic Christians are obligated by the Gospel to share it will everyone we meet. 



Sunday Mornings 10:30AM
 Thanksgiving is a very special time in the life of a Christian.  There is so much for which we truly should be very thankful.  Sometimes, as we sit to count our many blessings, even if we name them "one by one" as the old hymn suggests, we can become overwhelmed by the vast quantity of God's blessings as well as the many ways in which God has chosen to bless us.
 In our passage for this Sunday, the Apostle Paul speaks to the church in Corinth and begins by expressing the many ways God has blessed them as a church.  He reminds the church of how God has so richly blessed them and how God would sustain them and strengthen them for the challenges ahead.  In our message for this Sunday, Pastor Chuck will highlight the ways Paul expressed his thanksgiving for the blessings that church had received and then will look to our church today to apply these same blessings that we also have received by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We know from what Paul wrote and from Christian history that the church in Corinth struggled with many of the same kinds of issues our churches today struggle with in attempting to be the church God has called them to be.  This refresher on remembering that even in the midst of their most difficult trials and tribulations, God had still blessed them far and above anything they had ever deserved or earned helps us today to be encouraged to face the trials of life today knowing God's blessings are fully with us in this struggle. 
Read 1 Corinthians 1:4-9 and come prepared to be reminded of that for which Paul was thankful for in the church that was given by God.  Come and celebrate all that God has given us and how He will sustain us in the days and challenges ahead.

  You are also invited to Bible Study at 9:15AM.  (We'll have the coffee on!)
 Come and be together in His Presence with us!
