Today is a great day to worship the Lord.  There is a part of the divine nature of Almighty God that responds to our ability to freely offer love to Him.  Psalm 22:3 "But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel."  Worship that is from the heart is awesome in the site of God.  Psalms 147:1 "Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful."  Sometimes we may want to look real good for someone or some event and we dress up to look our best but in God's eyes praise makes you look beautiful.  So today rejoice put on your praise clothes and take of any spirit of heaviness.This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Giant Promises.'  We are always ready to receive a nice promise from the Lord but the trouble is not found in the promise but problems are hidden along the way as we advance towards the promise.  Sunday evening there is a change of plans and we will not be on the Sydney Boardwalk. Atlantic Jesus Fest is being held in Cape Breton on Sunday at the drive in theatre on Grand Lake Road.  It starts @4pm and ends around 11.  There is live music for the first 4 to 5 hours followed by 2 Christian movies. Alice and I will be away the next 2 weeks, Pastor Bruce will be looking after things while we are away. Continue to pray for those in need.  Really looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus.  There are some things about our faith in the word of the Lord that we need to obey just because it tells us to do it.  Jesus said you shall lay hands of the sick and pray for them to recover.  This is not a great suggestion but when we have the opportunity to pray for the sick we should pray.  It's up to us to obey the Lord and the more real God's Kingdom is to us, the more willing we are to follow His command.  Keeping it real is a challenge when the world around us seems to conflict with the God who is within us.  If you went to a bad place for a visit, you would not consider it to be normal but if you lived in that bad place, it would become your normal.  We are in this world but we are not of this world, we are just a passing through.  Don't allow the world's mess to become your normal but let's believe God for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
I want to thank everyone for the great job they did last weekend to make our Biker's Blessing service such a great success.  The presence of the Lord was strong as everyone was as I like to say, NICE.  It makes me thankful to be a part of such a wonderful church.   
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Stepping Out.'  There is always a moment when we receive a word from the Lord and then there is another moment when that word moves us and we see it come to pass.  God wants us to get ready for the word from a former season is about to come to pass in this season.  Sunday evening weather permitting @6 we're on the North Sydney Boardwalk.  Come out and enjoy the fellowship.
I was in to see Hazen Usher this morning at the Hospital and he is feeling much better and is hopeful to be getting out in the near future.  Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus.  Another great day to serve the Lord and in all our ways acknowledge Him.  It is often easy to be so busy with life that we don't take time to ask the Lord or commit to the Lord our ways.  In whatever direction we are going we have gone this way before so why bother God?  That would be true if God was bothered by us coming to Him but He looks to hear from us because He loves us.  His love towards us opens His ear to hear us so may He hear from us today.
This Sunday morning is Family Sunday & a Bikers Blessing.  We'll start at 10:30 on our church property Grand Lake Rd. with the main service followed by the Biker's Blessing.  We'll then be having a barbeque with lots of food and a bounce tent will be set up for the children.  On Family Sunday there is no evening service.
Continue to pray for those in need.  Lots of love, looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, blessings Pastor Kevin and Alice
