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,
What an exciting start to the year we have had! One thing to be excited about is that we are nearing completion on the Joy Center Pavilion-Park, and looking forward to it’s grand opening soon. Thank you to everyone who pledged and continues to give towards this project. It will be a huge addition for everyone at Family Worship Center, but especially for our youth on a weekly basis.
Speaking of our youth, we are thrilled to welcome our new Fuelhouse leaders Ben and Chelsea Smith! They have such a heart toward our young people, and they bring with them some great experience in youth ministry. I know they will be a tremendous addition to our team. They are looking forward to serving our youth and helping them continue to grow in their walk with the Lord.
There are a lot of exciting things going on around here, but what is most exciting to me is how fervent our Sunday mornings have been! We are seeing such a wonderful presence of God and such a heart for worship.
We always want to welcome His presence because in His presence things change, people are saved, and lives are touched.
John 4:23 proclaims, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.”
It has always been our goal at Family Worship Center to contend for the Spirit, and we will continue to make that our focus every time we gather.
I invite you to come with anticipation of what He will do as we seek Him and worship together in His house.
Love you much,
Happy and Blessed 2018 everybody!
Together let’s believe God for the best year ever – best for our church and best for every individual & family here at FWC!
God has great and mighty plans for each of us as we continue to seek Him first and follow His way fully. “When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even His enemies to be at peace with him.”
Also, let’s not only stand for our church and family, but let’s stand with our nation in every way, that our nation returns to its roots of Christianity. That we pray without ceasing for America! Praying for our leaders, from our President to our Congress and right on down the line to our state and local levels of government. “First of all, prayers and supplications be made for all men, for “presidents”…and all who are in authority”.
Speaking of prayer, allow me to encourage you to avail yourself to prayer on Wednesday nights, whenever your schedule permits. It is a great time of refueling. It is never the same as the Spirit leads in a variety of ways week after week. I believe you would love these one hour times of worship, the Word and prayer. Come expecting!
Wednesday nights begin at 6:30pm with community time where food, fellowship and teaching are the focus until 7:20pm. Or perhaps you would enjoy hearing my son, Shawn, via video during that same time in the Joy Center Auditorium. Then at 7:30pm our prayer service begins. Come to one or the other, or both and I believe you and your family will be blessed.
Of course Sundays at 10:30am is a wonderful time of celebration with powerful praise and worship, ministry in the Holy Spirit and the Word. Bring a friend, the Holy Spirit will touch them no doubt!
Again, we are so honored that you are a part of FWC and simply want you blessed in every way: spiritually, mentally, and physically.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers”. (3 John1:2)
Love you much,
