This summer has been a hot one, but things have also been heating up on the inside here at Family Worship Center! We have been talking about prayer recently and with that comes a growing fervency in our services that I love to see. Continue to come expecting; His power and presence is what we desire and it never disappoints.
I am very excited about what God is doing in every area here at Family Worship Center, especially in our young people. I recently had the opportunity to share with our Fuelhouse youth as they kicked off their summer beach trip, and I was so encouraged to see the hunger they have for the things of God. In all of our student ministries we believe in having BIG FUN! But we also desire to have the life changing power and presence of God at the forefront of every service.
Let me encourage you to take these last couple of weeks of summer and make the most of it with your family. Things get busy and schedules fill up quickly as school starts back, but don’t forget to seek God first. Family devotions and prayer are so important and a great way to put God at the center of everything you do as a family.
My continued prayer for you and your family can be found in the words of
3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
You Are Loved,
Summer is such a wonderful time for families! All the kids are out of school, the weather is hot and sunny, most of the time, and the weekends are filled with BBQ’s and outdoor gatherings. It has often been a trend for churches to view the summer as a down time, and even cut back. We always do the opposite at Family Worship Center! We have so many great things planned this month; I hope you will jump in and be a part of what’s happening.
With families in mind, we are launching a new series this month called “Faith, Hope, and Love”. Our goal is to help build stronger families through a series of Spirit-inspired messages that will include the entire family, no matter what stage of life you find yourself.
From our young singles, to our parents with children, to empty nesters, and especially the grandparents, there will be something for everyone! Be sure and join us this month for “Faith, Hope, and Love”.
I hope you will draw closer together and make lots of great memories this summer with family and friends. But most importantly, I always pray that you draw closer to God and walk in His plan and will for your life. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
See you soon and often!
The month of May is here, and it is obvious that the summer is quickly approaching! Our kids and youth are excited about soon being out of school, and many families are planning vacations and time away during this season. I love to see families having fun and enjoying life together!
I truly believe God wants the best for us and our families. James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” That has been a hallmark here at Family Worship Center for over 32 years! God is a good God, He loves us, and He only wants good things for us.
Speaking of good things, we get to celebrate moms this month! I hopeyou will join Bea and I as we honor all the moms this Mother’s Day. This will be a special day with exciting things planned for all our moms including some inspirational thoughts from Ms. Bea. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this day!
It is my prayer that this will be the best summer ever for you and your family and that you will be blessed in every area of your life. As we seek God and put Him first He is always faithful.
You Are Loved!
This is such an exciting time of the year as we join together as family and celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I look forward to gathering together in His house every week, but especially this time of year as we celebrate Easter.
Matthew 28:6 declares, “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said.” What a wonderful truth that He has risen, yes indeed! We serve a living God! That is something to truly be excited about!
Also this month we are very excited to be opening the Joy Center Park-Pavilion. I hope you will stop by and see just how great everything has turned out. Thank you to everyone who has participated and continues to be a part of Growing Family. This is going to be such a wonderful addition that will benefit everyone at Family Worship Center, but
especially our youth on a weekly basis.
See you soon and often!
Spring is here and with it comes a sense of newness! God’s handiwork is everywhere we look. From the very beginning of time Genesis 8:22 tells us, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.” I can’t help but get excited thinking about how God works the same way in our lives He is always making things new!
Let me take a moment to encourage you.There are more opportunities than ever for us to come together in His house to worship, hear the Word, pray, and fellowship as family. Matthew 18:20 says, “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Something good always happens when we gather together in His name.
I want you to know that I continually pray for you and your family, that you will hear God’s voice and follow His guidance in every area of your life. We serve such a good God! He cares for us more than we can even imagine. It is a privilege each and every week to preach His goodness and serve you and your family. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world!
Your Friend and Pastor,
