Sunday Morning Message


Our 2019  Message Theme is:

"Walking with Jesus"


So often we read the stories of the Bible and we see how God does so many great things in the lives of those who faithfully follow Him.  We read in John how Jesus calls us to abide in Him because apart from Him, He says we can do nothing.  But how do we do this?  How do we walk with Jesus in the context of our lives today?

 This year, Pastor Chuck will bring a series of messages from both the Old and New Testaments to unlock the answer to our question above.  We will learn how to increase our intimacy with the Lord Jesus Christ and we will learn how to walk so closely with Jesus today that we will experience His close presence in every area of our lives. 

You are invited to join us on this Journey of Faith, seeking an ever increasing personal and intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, who is not only the King of king and the Lord of lords, but He is also the First Born of our Family and our co-laborer in the Work God has for us to do today.

 Come Walk with Jesus more closely than ever before. He is waiting for you to join Him for a walk today.

For what do you choose to live your life? People today choose to live their lives for many different reasons or goals.  For example, they dedicate themselves to their careers, their families, and sometimes just to having entertainment in their lives.  While none of these things are evil in or of themselves, is there a higher calling, a higher value for which we as Christians should be living our lives?

In our passage for next Sunday, the Lord Jesus teaches us about what needs to be the higher calling in our lives today and He shows us what will happen if we commit to this higher calling.  Pastor Chuck will bring a message entitled "Life in the Pursuit of the Holy Spirit", based on Like 11:9-13 in which the Lord Jesus teaches us how we, as Christians, should live our lives in the pursuit of the Holy Spirit and how God will respond to us if we do.

Remembering that the Holy Spirit of God was given as a seal of our promise of eternal life, and that in all authentic Christians, the Holy Spirit is in permanent residence, we then take the words of this passage not to mean that we must somehow find the Holy Spirit, but that the pursuit of the Holy Spirit opens up the doors of Heaven to connect us with Father God intellectually, emotionally, and volitionally.    In doing that we grow much deeper in our relationship with Father God, and His power can reign freely in our lives today.

You are invited to come and to study the Word of God with us.  We seek to read and understand the message God has for each one of us from His Word.  Then we seek to understand practical applications for our lives today in order that in the way we live, we are seeking to be obedient to the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ. God has said that if we will seek Him with all our hearts, we will find Him. If you are seeking God today, we invite you to join with us in your journey to God and that by finding Him you will find the love, mercy, forgiveness and new life you desire today.
