Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Within each day there are things to be glad about so don’t miss your moments to rejoice.  There was a person I know who was always complaining about a certain thing, I said, ‘if the Lord fixes this for you you’ll have nothing to talk about.’  If you believe that the Lord made the day then your job is to rejoice and be glad.  If you practice doing the right thing then the complaining should stop.
This past Wednesday the Bible Study was awesome with over 50 people enjoying the presence of the Lord and the teaching of Robert Morris.  This Sunday morning I’ll be sharing on, ‘Following The Word.’  Jesus said to build your life on the Word.  When a storm hits your house the deciding factor of surviving the storm is not the size of the storm nor it is the type of people who live in the house but it’s what did you build your house with.  Sunday evening, ‘Don’t Miss The Party.’  It’s possible to be invited to a party and miss it.  Missing it because you are uninterested, uncaring, unwilling, or just too busy doing other things.  God invites us to celebrate together all the time so let the party begin.  
Next Sunday morning Pastor Ted Yuke from the Rock Church will be with us.  The following Sunday is Family Sunday so start to think of some friends that you could invite out to church.  Continue to pray for those in need, Pastor Bob and Karen Lawther, the new converts in the church, and the Nation of Israel.
Have a blessed day, hope to see you on Sunday, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice.

Praise the Lord Jesus for another wonder filled day.  We started our Bible Study on this past Wednesday evening and it began a 7 week series with Robert Morris.  It was awesome with almost 40 people enjoying our time together.  There will be a certificate for those that attend at least 5 of the 7 sessions.  In John 8:12 “Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”  Jesus said that there would be benefits to following Him.  One of His promises are, we shall not walk in darkness.  Jesus doesn’t lead us into darkness but rather He leads us out of darkness and into light.  When a believer chooses to dwell in darkness it is a sign that they are unwilling to take up their cross and follow the Lord. Walking in the light doesn’t make us immune to trouble but we don’t face trouble in the dark for we are children of the light.  We may have been reviled and falsely accused from people who live in darkness but we declare that the light of the world lives inside of us.  SO…Why so downcast oh my soul put your trust in God and lift up your head and let your light shine.
This Sunday morning I’ll be sharing on, ‘Forward Motion.’  There are many ways in which the Lord will call us to advance but every way that the Lord uses has a way of drawing us forward into something greater.  In the evening I’ll be sharing on, ‘Rooted In.’  Everyone is rooted into something and what we see growing on the branches declares what’s been developing in the roots.
Continue to pray for those in need.  Hope to see you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise the Lord for another wonder-filled day.  I thought if you were a bird and decided to fly backwards, then you’d see everywhere you’ve been.  By going backwards your future would be a repeat of your past and where you were is where you’re going.  Only by looking ahead do we see on the horizon the great things that are to come.  In Philippians 3:12 Paul writes, Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”  Paul knew that in spite of the victories and trials of the past, the future would reveal the seasons and reasons for which he was called.  The Church is a divine group of called out ones who are workers together in this hour to see the Kingdom of God revealed.  Our future is spread out before us and we must press into it together.
This Sunday morning I’ll be sharing on, “Remember The Leftovers.”  Often it is the remembering of past victories that enable us to defeat present problems.  If we forget where we’ve been we may lose track of where we’re going.  The devils job is to make us view a present storm as overwhelming.  When Jesus came walking on the water He reveals to us that He can walk on top of what we think is trying to take us under.  Sunday evening Lord willing there will be a Water Baptism service at the Tobin’s pool.  We have several adults wanting to follow the Lord and obey the scriptures by being baptized.  We’ll start at 5 with a barbeque followed by the Baptism service at 6.  This Wednesday at 7 we startup our midweek Bible Study.  Yes the summer is over so plan to attend midweek and grow in the knowledge and wisdom of the Lord.
Continue to pray for those in need and those that lead us in the ways of the Lord.  Hope to see you on Sunday, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice.
