Hi everyone, last week's yard sale raised over 900.00 dollars for the Munro School.  I want to thank everyone for their support in this effort.  This money will go to helping children in our community receive a faith based education.  The results of your labor will be seen in time and eternity. 
When we talk about our salvation it comes through an act of our will to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord and repent or turn away from our sin.  What happens when we make a mistake or worse fall away from our faith?  These verses that are found in 1 John were written to believers and they helped me to understand what we need to do when we make mistakes or fall away.  1 John 1:9-10 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us."  As believers when we sin we don't need to get resaved but we do need to confess to God the problem and be willing to repent or turn away from the problem.  It's an ongoing process that helps us continue on in the faith and this process never changes.  When you sin don't look down, don't make an excuse, don't poll the audience but lift up your eyes to Jesus.  Psalms 121:1-2 "I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?  My help comes from theLord, the Maker of heaven and earth."  Keep your head up for His promises are sure and your best days are coming to your house.  
This Sunday in the morning I be sharing on, 'His Kingdom Purpose.'  His Kingdom must come to you so His purposes can be revealed in you and then go forth from you to the world around you.  In the evening we'll be going outdoors to our church property and I'll be sharing on, 'Out of Your Wilderness.'  How do we escape the pitfalls and potholes, snares and traps of the enemy?  Invite a friend and enjoy the service together. 
We are looking to upgrade our video ministry at a cost of 20 thousand dollars.  Thank you to those people who have already promised or have made a donation.   If you would like to sow a seed and contribute to this ministry that reaches the world it would be greatly appreciated.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice

We all seek to keep peace within ourselves, with those around us, and with God above.  Jesus said in John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."  This peace that Jesus offers us comes from us trusting who we are and what we have to Him.  Until you know who you are you'll never be able to make peace with Jesus and you'll never be content with what you have.  Having His peace doesn't mean that you'll live in a place where there is no noise, evil, drama, trouble, or hard work but it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.  I pray for you today that you may walk in His Divine peace.
We were planning a Yard Sale for tomorrow but many people have asked for more time to collect their stuff so we are going to move the yard sale ahead a couple of weeks.  We are still asking for you to bring your stuff to the church property on Friday evening between 6-8 where we can price it and store it.  Thanks so much for your help.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing, 'How To Become.'  We all want to become all that God wants us to be but how do we ever reach that goal?  Sunday evening Pastor Mark will be sharing the Word of the Lord with us.  Bring a friend and enjoy the service. 
Continue to pray for all those in need.  I'm looking forward to seeing you, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice

I want to congratulate all the men out there who are working diligently to be good Godly father.  The task is great and the challenges are many but the rewards are out of this world. 1 Corinthians 4:15 "For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers..."  Paul is saying that the calling to be a spiritual father or a spiritual dad sets the bar high and it requires a lot of work to make it.  The good news is real men don't mind hard work and they will work to express their faith in Jesus to their family.  Watch out, the real men are rising up in Christ and will be a blessing to the nation.     
Coming up tomorrow morning @ 8:30 is a Men's Breakfast at Sydney Pentecostal Church in Sydney.  John Jenson will be sharing the word with the men.
Tomorrow evening @6 pm the Lumber River will be sharing the gospel in music at the Open Hearth Park in Sydney.  Be sure to come out, bring a friend and a chair and enjoy the evening Lumber River will also be singing for us on Sunday morning (Father's Day) at the church.  I will be sharing a word, 'The Father's Perception.'  Seeing things from above can turn a rainy day into a rainbow.  There is no evening service on Father's Day.
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you all soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a blessed day.   Psalm 19:1-2 "The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge."  It's at the end of the day that we can look back at what we said during the day and gain knowledge.  Did we say the right things, would we change anything we said, was this day which the Lord has made for us to enjoy enjoyable?  If we learn to reflect, meditate, and contemplate the night unto day and the day unto night, many times over and over again we will become wise.  Joshua 1:8  "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."  May everything you put your hand to do today be blessed. 
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Crazy Faith.'  Often with miracles there is a story before the story that made the story possible.  What you do today can pave the way for your next miracle.  In the evening Pastor Bruce will be sharing the Word of the Lord with us.  Be sure to invite a friend to come to church with you. 
Coming up next weekend (Father's Day weekend ) we will be having the Lumber River singers minister with us.  We are planning on Saturday June 20th 6pm an outdoor outreach event to the community at the New Earth Park in Sydney.  (Everybody bring 2 friends) Then on Sunday morning Lumber River will be with us for our morning service.  They share a great testimony as they lift up the name of the Lord Jesus in song.
Also coming up on Saturday June 26th our Church will hold a Church Yard Sale on our Church property to support Munro Academy, the Christian School.  Gather up all your stuff as we support the school together.  You can have your items picked up if you need us to do so or if it's a bag or two of stuff bring it to church and we will look after it.  We will also set us a table for baked goods and we will need some help at the Yard sale to make things go smoothly.  See Pastor Bruce
Continue to pray for those in need, hope to see you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
