What a wonderful change has been brought in my life since Jesus came into my heart.  Jesus coming into a heart is life changing and if you haven't been changed then somehow you only got religious while sitting in the sanctuary.  Faith to follow the Bible is the key to walking higher in the things of God.  There are good feelings when we are walking by faith but good feelings can't be the steering wheel for our life.  Feelings come and go and people that are led by feelings come and go also.  To be faithful is to be full of faith and in faithfulness we are to live, move, and have our being.  I may not always feel blessed but the word tells me that I always am blessed.  Deuteronomy 28:6 "Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out."  Are you going into something?  Are you coming out of something? Blessed is how you'll be even when blessed is not how you feel.  May you walk by faith today for you are greatly blessed and higher favoured.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing of, 'Fighting For Unity.'  Sometimes the battle is not over who's right or wrong but can we get along as we travel towards our victory.  How can two walk together unless they agree?  Agreeing together takes faith and even if you don't have faith for a miracle, God sees the faith you used to agree and gives you a miracle.  It's like your children are playing together real well and you decide to take them for a treat, they won't expecting a treat but their unity gave them a reward.  Sunday evening we're on the Sydney Boardwalk @6.  Come out and bring a friend as we share the good news with our community. 
Continue to pray for those in need.  Hazen Usher is in the hospital after having gallbladder surgery. 
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Hello everyone, I had some Tech problems last Friday so hopefully we are back on track with the news letter.  We had a great prayer walk on Wednesday in North Sydney with much prophetic insight about the Spiritual needs in our community.  God is good and He is leading us and changing us along the way.  An egg turns into a bird and the bird in turn needs to learn how to fly.  If the egg doesn't turn out a bird then the bird in turn will never learn how to fly.  There is a process, birds fly and eggs don't fly.  What you were doesn't give you the ability to do what you are becoming.  It's as we walk with God that we develop, grow, and mature into who God designed us to be.    Mark 16:17-18 " And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;  they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."  Just as flying comes naturally to birds, miracles come naturally to growing maturing believers.  May you fly high today and experience a miracle in your life.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Sanctify Yourself.'  Sometimes we can be quick to judge others and the work of judging others takes us away from the good things that we should be doing.  We can get catch up in what others are doing or not doing and it hinders us from becoming all that we could be.  Sunday evening we are back on the Sydney Boardwalk.  If you are not busy please make an effort to join us as it is encouraging for those who minister to see a crowd and receive your prayers.
Continue to pray for those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise the Lord for another day where it’s warmer here than in Florida.  There is one thing that is always true about the weather, it’s always changing.  It can be either wonderful and miserable depending on when you step outside.  For some people they are only happy when the weather is what they like but if it’s not then they’re not.  They have allowed their mood to be controlled by the changing weather rather than something more unchanging.  Jesus said to build your house upon the rock rather than on the shifting sinking sands of life.  Are you glad to be standing on the Rock of our Salvation?  1 Peter 2:7 “Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient. The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.”  For all those that have accepted Jesus He had made room on the Rock for them to stand.  Thanks be to God for the unchanging promises of the Lord are yes and amen to those who believe.  Enjoy the great day for this is the day that the Lord has made.
This Sunday is Family Sunday and I’ll be sharing on, ‘Come Out of the Cemetery.’  The cemetery is the only place where no one is expecting anything to move.  If anything does move someone screams.  If you as a person get stuck on the issues of what could have been, should have been, or what may have been, you’ll never be empowered to move forward.  On Family Sunday we start @10:15 for breakfast, (bring some food) followed by the morning service, communion, and a building fund offering.  On Family Sunday there is no evening service.  
Since the new year we have been praying and asking for support to replace the cargo van that we had to transport all the sound gear that we have to do our outreach services.  This week we received a donation of a truck to the ministry.  This truck is well able to do everything we need to do and more.  We will have the truck in front of the church this Sunday for everyone to see.  We want to thank them who donated the truck and praise God for answering prayer.  The money that was raise will cover the cost of a new cap for the back of the truck, insurance, and inspection.  This Wednesday from 7-9 pm at the hall where we hold Bible Study, Rachel and her mission’s group will be teaching on Worship.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  Next Sunday July 14th at 6pm we will be having our first Sydney boardwalk outreach service.  We need extra volunteers to help us with set up, tear down, setting up chairs, and passing out our magazine, if you can help see Pastor Bruce or Rolly.
Carl MacDonald is in the Sydney hospital dealing with an infection in his foot and leg.  He likes visits so if you are out and about drop in to see him. A lady in our church is recovering from surgery and is feeling much better.  Pray for all those in need as we believe in the power of God to heal.  Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
