Hi again and praise the Lord for another blessed day.  I know it’s Thursday but I wanted everyone not to forget the Good Friday service tomorrow morning @10:30 at Bethel Family Church in Glace Bay.  It’s always a wonderful time as our 2 churches work together.  There will be a sound check for the worship team @9:45 and in the service I’ll be sharing on, ‘the sayings from the cross.’  Hold onto your hats as Saturday morning @8:30 is our 6th Annual Men’s Breakfast.  Martin has lined up all the ducks for another blessed time as men get together.  Sunday morning is our Easter service with lots of great music, communion, special DVD, and our guest speaker Richard Bragdon.   
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you over the weekend, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Bless the Lord oh my soul and forget not all of His snow storms.  Time will bring change as long as you are willing to take chances along the way.  We can look back at history and see how great people changed the world but we can somehow go through life feeling that we can’t do much.  I received an email from a teenager in Sydney and that was his dilemma.  He wanted change but he didn’t want to take any chances.  He hated what was but felt trapped and unable to make a difference.  I believe that we all go though such feelings but it’s important not to buy real estate in your wilderness.  Press on, the sun will shine, the snow will melt, and tomorrow will bring a better day.  2 Timothy 2:3 “You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”  Don’t allow your moments in the wilderness to cause you to forget the promises that await you in your Promise Land.
This Sunday morning I’ll be sharing on ‘Delivered and Freedom.’  Sometimes we can think because we are delivered from sin that we can automatically walk in freedom above sin.  Deliverance is an act of God while freedom is an act of truth.  If you don’t receive the truth after you get delivered you have swept the house clean but you never established truth and you end up walking away in frustration.  You also look at others and don’t understand how delivered people can still walk in bondage.  You shall know the truth…..and the truth shall make you free.  Sunday evening we are believing for a great time of word and worship signs and wonders.
Coming up next weekend @10:30am is our Good Friday Service with the Bethel Family Church in Glace Bay.  It’s always been a highlight of the Easter Weekend for our churches to join together.  Then on Saturday morning @8:30 is our annual Easter Men’s Breakfast.   We will have a big breakfast, good music, and our special speaker is Richard Bragdon the new director for Monty Lewis and Bridges of Canada.  He is noted as being a fire ball for the Lord.  If you have any question about the Breakfast or would like to help out please contact Martin McCarthy at 539-5355.  Easter Sunday morning  Richard will be the guest speaker at the church and there will be no evening service. 
Continue to pray for those in need.   Lots of love, looking forward to seeing you Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise the Lord for another wonder filled day.  I am expecting today to be a great day, a blessed day, a beautiful day for me to walk in and receive God’s Divine favor.  I do not base that on yesterday circumstances nor on tomorrow’s hopes but faith for me today is based on the fact that active faith is always in the now.  Now faith is Hebrews tells us.  God said about Himself that we were to address Him or call Him I AM.  Not I was before now nor one day I hope to be but right now I am whatever you need.  As a believer you are walking with I am right now and He is an ever present help.  In other words you walk to the degree of the revelation you have of who I am is to you.  He does not change but as your knowledge of Him increases you walk to a greater degree with I am.  My prayer for you today is to increase in the wisdom and revelation of who He is so you can obtain new heights and receive new blessings.
Sunday morning I’ll be sharing on, ‘Own & Owe.’  In all of our relationships that we have with others we have power over some things and others have power in some areas over us.  How do you balance yourself to be like Jesus in every relationship?  Sunday evening Pastor Bruce will be bringing the Word of the Lord.  Come out and bring a friend to hear the insights and wisdom as Pastor Bruce shares with us.
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of Almighty God. Jesus asked His Disciples who they thought that He was. Matthew 16:16-19  Simon Peter said, “You’re the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus came back, “God bless you, Simon, son of Jonah! You didn’t get that answer out of books or from teachers. My Father in heaven, God himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am. And now I’m going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out. “And that’s not all. You will have complete and free access to God’s kingdom, keys to open any and every door: no more barriers between heaven and earth, earth and heaven. A yes on earth is yes in heaven. A no on earth is no in heaven.”  The power to do greater things came after receiving a greater revelation of who Jesus is.  If all you see is a little Jesus then that’s all you perceive that He is able to do.  If you see a big Jesus, the living Son of the living God, then you able to do greater things because of the greater or bigger revelation of who He is.  The greater He is to you the greater things that He can do through you.  May you receive today a bigger fresher revelation of our Savior Jesus.  Last Sunday morning there was a little problem with the CD of the message but that has been fixed and CD’s from last Sunday will be available this Sunday.  This message on relationships is an in season word. This is Family Sunday, get ready get ready get ready.  Invite your friends as the Lord has been using this event as a key within His Kingdom to open the hearts of His people.  We start @10:15 with food and fellowship and then go into the main service ending with Holy Communion.  I will be sharing on, “Treasure.”  Are there any Treasure seekers out there?  God has hidden Treasure around us that when we find it we become rich.  There is no evening service on Family Sunday. Continue to pray for those in need.  Alissa Snow (a young girl from our church) had to have emergency surgery yesterday.  We pray for her to have a quick and full recovery.  Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice.
