This month we have some exciting celebrations coming up. First, you won’t want to miss Palm Sunday! We will be having baby dedications, receiving family communion, and rejoicing with our family members being water baptized. This will be an exciting Sunday as we prepare for one of our biggest Sundays of the year, Easter!
I’m so excited about our up coming Easter services as we get to worship together and celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We will have have two services this Easter Sunday at 9:00 and 11:00. This is the perfect day to bring family and friends that you want to see touched in the presence of God. We will have special music, drama, and preaching to tell the story of salvation in a powerful way. There are many people that only come to church this one time of the year. What a perfect opportunity for the Spirit of God to touch them and soften their hearts!
That is one of our greatest desires here at Family Worship Center, to see lives changed in His presence. When He touches lives, they will never be the same, in Jesus Name!
I look forward to celebrating our resurrected Savior together with you as family!
I remain excited about what God is doing at Family Worship Center! Every week we have many wonderful opportunities to gather in His house and seek Him. We have prayer meetings each day throughout the week. On Wednesdays people are enjoying fellowship in Realife, and Prayerlife has been like Heaven on earth! Then on Sunday mornings we get to worship together, all in one accord!
Let me encourage you to come into this place every week with anticipation and a hunger. Come expecting from God; He is always faithful to show up and do great things! As our church goes higher in the things of God I believe your lives and families will experience this increase as well in every area of life! “As it is in this house, so it is in your house!” My greatest desire is for you to experience God’s very best in your life: where you live, where you work, and where you play.
It is my continued prayer that you and your family will prosper as your soul prospers. Matthew 6:33 instructs us, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” We have God’s Word on it, seek Him first and He will take care of the rest!
See you soon and often,
I trust you and your family are having a great start to 2019. I continue to pray that you prosper in every area just as your soul prospers! I see God at work in our church and in our families, and I believe He wants us to have a successful journey as we seek Him in all things.
Looking back over the years there are many principles and truths that we have held fast to as a church family. One of those truths is that God is a good God. I can tell you with certainty that we stand for this principle today more then ever. You can’t change my mind on the fact that God is always good! You can’t shake it from me, you can’t beat it out of me, and no one will ever convince me otherwise!
The easiest way I know how to explain this is to draw a line down the center of your life; if something is good, it’s from God. If something is not good, then it’s not from God. It really is that simple (James 1:16-17)!
That’s not to say we won’t have trials or bad things that may happen in life. Just know that those things are never from God, and even when we go through something that is hard we don’t have to face it alone. I am so glad we have a Heavenly Father that said He would never leave us or forsake us, and He’s always there when we need Him. Psalms 46:1 makes it clear, “God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble.”
I am a firm believer that God can take something that was meant for destruction and turn it around for good! He’s always working on our side. No matter what things look like we can trust and know that God is always good. You can hold fast to that truth in every area of life.
Praying for you continually,
I want to start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year! Our God is a good God and He is always faithful! Last year was no exception as we continued to see lives touched and people changed for His glory. I am looking forward to 2019, with an even greater expectation of what He will do. We serve a big God and nothing is impossible for Him. He cares for everything that concerns us, no matter how big or small.
Let me encourage you in this New Year to walk with God in an even greater way. He wants us to seek Him and follow after the things He has prepared for us. One of the ways we do this is by gathering together in His house. Hebrews 10:23-25 instructs us with these words, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
When we gather in God’s house something happens unlike anywhere else. I look forward to starting 2019 with you in His house. Together we will serve and love God with all of our heart, our soul, our mind and our strength. I can’t wait to see the good things He has planned!
Happy and Blessed New Year,
December is finally here so let me be the first to say Merry Christmas! This is absolutely my favorite time of the year. What I find so wonderful about Christmas is that a miracle from over 2,000 years ago still brings such great joy and celebration to the entire world.
Christmas is all about the miracle of God sending His one and only Son, Jesus His perfect gift to us. What’s so amazing about this gift is that we not only get to receive it, but we also get to share it! I can’t think of a better time of year to share Jesus with everyone around us. Everywhere we go there is Christmas joy, music playing, people saying “Merry Christmas”, and it’s all about Jesus!
We see the promise of God’s perfect gift in Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
I pray as you celebrate and share the love of Christmas with family and friends that you will create memories that will last forever, and draw closer together. I also pray that during this Christmas season you will draw closer to Him. Jesus, truly is the Reason for the Season.
