Psalm 92:12-13 "The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.  Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God."  We see that healthy growth on earth is directly connected to being divinely connected to the Heavenly realm.  Your soul flourishes like a palm tree just as your spirit flourishes in the courts of our God.  We want earthly success but it comes from the seeds that we plant in the Heavenly realm.  In Matthew 6 Jesus looked at this same truth to teach His disciples how to pray.  "Therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven."  The blessing on earth comes from our relationship with our Father in Heaven.  Stay connected to God above and be blessed in the earth below.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Moving Forward.'  There is an internal process in having external progress.  Sunday evening weather permitting we will be enjoying an outdoor service on the church property.  Food and fellowship as we lift up the name of the Lord Jesus.  A good service to bring a friend.
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Pray for the family of Dwight Conrad in their time of grief. Friends and family are welcomed to share stories and libations at the Old Triangle Pub in Sydney on Saturday, Aug. 15 from 5-7 p.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise the Lord Jesus for giving us His Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us into all truth.  When we start to apply divine truth to human life we begin to see that truth has many layers or levels.  Things that are true fit together with other things that are true.  Ephesians 3: 17-18 "that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height." What you are rooted and grounded in brings forth or reveals what you can comprehend.  The height of the building is determines by the depth of the foundation.  The next truth doesn't have to look like the last truth but it does have to fit together with the last truth.  May we go deeper, fly higher, and run longer as we advance in His glorious Kingdom.
Tomorrow, Saturday morning @9 the Munro Academy is having a work day at the school. 
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, "Public & Private."  There are some things that God does in public and other stuff He does in private.  For us who were created in His image there is some things that we do in public and there is other stuff that we keep private.  Wisdom is to know when to do what with the information that we have.
There is no evening service this Sunday. 
We have also started 'POD CASTING' our sermons.  Go to pod cast and put in our church name and you will be able to listen to past sermons.
Continue to pray for those in need, looking forward to seeing you, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice

Get ready, get ready, get ready it's "Family Sunday."  We start at 10:15 with some wonderful food and blessed fellowship followed by our morning service.  Our guest speaker this Sunday is Jim Weller.  Jim has a ministry making Bibles available to Russia and Eastern Europe.  He is a great speaker and always brings an encouraging word.  On Family Sunday there is no evening service.
I was thinking this week about our church family and what is it that creates a healthy family and thus a healthy church?  One of the big things that I believe our church expresses is our ability to honor each other for who they are.  That giving honor makes people feel welcome to join us no questions asked.  It's not a matter of what you've done but it's a matter of what you now can become.  I see that we are quick to forgive people because we haven't forgotten that we have been forgiven.  There is a real sense of love, joy and peace which has given us a river of life within the family.  We feel that together is better than being alone and we look to help each other wherever we can.  We have a common goal to love and worship God and love and respect each other.  I am glad to be a part of what God has done and is still doing among us.  I am proud of all of you for growing up to the place that the Lord is drawing more and more people into our Family.  As we continue to grow let me say to God be all the glory and our best days are yet to come
Continue to pray for all those in need, lots of love, looking forward to seeing you soon, Pastor Kevin and Alice

Praise the Lord for there is no one more worthy to be praised than Jesus.  Sometimes in life we can forget to thank someone who was good to us.  They helped us out or they gave us something that we needed and we would say, 'when we see them we will have to thank them.'  Life goes on and we forget.  Paul wrote, using only a few words, to set a high bar for us to reach.  1st Thessalonians 5:16-22 "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.  Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not despise prophecies.  Test all things; hold fast what is good.  Abstain from every form of evil."  Living a thankful life is to live a blessed life so remember today to thank God and all those around you that help to make your world wonderful.
This Sunday there is only the morning service.  We will have a baby to dedicate to the Lord and I will be sharing with you, 'Can You Change.'  When someone asks you about a change that you need to make, do you give them an answer or an excuse?  At times it's our excuses that hinder us from stepping out and changing what needs to be changed.
Last Wednesday some of the video ministry team spent the day in Moncton looking at what we need to upgrade our video ministry equipment.  I mentioned the need of 20 thousand dollars to make this happen so if you can help out it would be greatly appreciated.  Next Sunday is the first Sunday in Aug so it's Family Sunday.  Get ready, get ready, get ready. 
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
