Praise the Lord for He is good.  With how busy things are getting I'm not sure if we are slowing down for the summer or speeding up to do greater things.  Being in Newfoundland was amazing.  I really felt that I had a word from the Lord for the churches that I spoke in.  I was in 4 different denominations across the province of Newfoundland as their guest speaker.  God spoke to me a few years ago about being a bridge builder between different church groups.  I am truly humbled as He continues to fulfill His word.
This Sunday is Family Sunday (risk an Amen) and we start with food and fellowship at 10:15 followed by the morning service.  I have a word to share with you, 'How Is Your Hearing?'  How you are in hearing, determines what you believe in doing.  There will be communion and on Family Sunday there is no evening service.  Don't forget to bring some food and friends and come expecting a miracle.
Continue to pray for those in need, looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

The sun is shining, it's Mother's Day weekend, and the Lord He is good.  Ephesians 5:13-14 "But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.  Therefore He says Awake oh sleeper and rise from the dead and Christ will give you light."  It's a day of blessing for all those who are awake and have an ear to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying.  If you are asleep then wake up for the day is great and you're missing it.  Spiritual slumber and sleep causes us to miss the warmth of the Son who wants to shine on us.  Maybe your man made bed side clock broke at 2 am and you awake to view the clock and want to go back to sleep but stir yourself, awake oh sleeper and don't miss the fact that the light of God's Son is flooding your room.  The last few years the devil has deceived so many people with a broken understanding and now they sleep in as the light of Jesus is bringing signs and wonders to the Church.  Look around you, Jesus is alive!
This is Mother's Day Sunday and I'll be sharing on, 'Mother's of Faith.'  God promises according to His Word to always make a way of escape.  The way of escape will always be according to His Word but He does not promise that we who follow His way will always like the way of escape.  Commitment and submission to His written Word will always be required in the way of escape from our problem.  There will be no Sunday evening service this Sunday as people take time to honour your Mom.
As many of you know I am the area director for the Canadian Fellowship of Christian Ministries (CFCM)  Alice and I will be away meeting with Pastor's and leaders over the next two Sundays.  I will be speaking next Saturday evening at a leadership rally in Harbour Grace, Sunday am in Victoria (PAON) church and Sunday evening CFCM church in New Harbour.  We will spend a few days with Jenny, Murray and our grand children in Carbonear.  The following  Sunday we'll be with Pastor Cyril Rogers at Son Rise church in Corner Brook.  Next Sunday here Pastor Bruce will bring the morning message and Louie Campbell the evening.  The following Sunday sharing the Word will be Pastor Mark in the morning and Pastor Bruce in the evening.  Pray for Alice and myself as we go to encourage and lift up the hands of our pastors.            
Continue to pray for Mary Lou who is receiving treatments in Halifax as we pray for all those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice

How are we to walk straight looking up to Heaven while living down to earth?  As Christians we are to grow Spiritually to believe for greater miracles and still be able to relate honestly and lovingly to the world around us.  We have spiritual needs and physical needs that we need to juggle to stay in some kind of balance.  If we are going to walk according to the Word of God then we must know the Word of God.  To have a safe journey through life it's the Word that is able to guide us.  When someone tells you that there are parts of the Bible that no longer apply or it can't help us and guide us today they tell lies. 
2 Timothy 3:16-17  "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."
Our society is no longer thoroughly equipped for every good work because they are no longer thoroughly convinced that the Bible is the owner's manual for life.  I believe it's the word of God that keeps us balanced to enjoy the presence of the Lord and the natural world around us.  Keep the Word close to your heart and the Word will keep you close to God.
This is Family Sunday and we start at 10:15 with food and fellowship followed by the morning service.  Remember to take some food and invite someone to come with you.  I'll be sharing a message, "His Divine Order."  It's easy to get saved but lining up to receive your marching orders can be difficult.  It's like we plan to get married but do we plan to be married?  We want to join the Army of God but then avoid boot camp.  There will be Communion at the end and on Family Sunday there is no evening service. 
Continue to pray for those in need.  We believe in the God that Heals as we pray for Mary Lou and others who are looking for a Divine touch.  Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
