Spiritual Darkness seems to abound in our world today; evil acts of violence, self-abuse and abuse of others, hatred, greed, and selfishness.  It can be quite overwhelming at times, but the darkness that we see reminds us of why the celebration of Christmas is so important to us

The Message of Christmas is all about the fact that God looked into a world that was full of darkness and said for the second time, “let there be light!”

Who or what is your Light this Christmas?

Who is the true Light of Christmas?

Join us this Sunday at 9 or 11 a.m. as we discover that Jesus is the only one and true light of Christmas.

 

Baby Dedication Sunday!

November 9th, 2017

Have you ever been praying and someone says, “Wow, teach me to pray like that!” It happened to Jesus.

Funny, but of all the things that the disciples saw Jesus do, the thing that impressed them the most was the way He communicated with the Father.

You don’t see them saying, “Jesus, teach us how to walk on water.”  Or “Jesus, teach us how to multiply fish and bread and feed thousands.”  They said “Jesus, teach us how to pray”.

This prompted Jesus to sit down and teach them His 21 Second Prayer that we talked about last week and have been praying this week, The Lord’s Prayer. (Matthew 6:9b-13)

Join us this Sunday at 9 or 11 a.m. as we spend some time discovering some principles found in The Lord’s Prayer that will help us as we pray.  Within this 21 Second Prayer, Jesus teaches us FIVE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT PRAYER.

There are a lot of good prayers in the Bible.  There are a lot of good examples of how to pray and I love them all, but there is only one prayer in the Bible that Jesus tells us directly to pray, saying this is how I want you to pray.  We find it in Matthew 6:9-13 and we refer to it as The Lord’s Prayer.

It would seem that the Lord’s Prayer, this old classic, has lost a lot of its popularity in our day and time.

However, The Lord’s Prayer, is still powerful and covers every aspect of our lives where we need the Lord’s help and blessings.

The title of this series is taken from Mark Rutland’s book, :21 Seconds To Change Your World, which I recommend.  This title comes from the fact that it only takes about 21 seconds to say the prayer at a moderate rate.

But this 21 Second Prayer Jesus taught us will change us and change our world.

So, don’t forget to set your clock’s back Saturday night, invite a friend, and join us Sunday at 9 or 11 a.m for this new series! Our Newcomer’s Social is also on Sunday after each service, so make a plan to stay and enjoy refreshments and find out more about Believers!
