Hi everyone, Jesus said, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)  It doesn't matter to Jesus where you are in life when you start to follow Him as long as you start.  We all have to start somewhere so I say,'start where you are.'  Don't wait until you have made yourself better.  Don't wait until you've stop doing some bad habit.  Don't wait until you understand everything but admit you need His help and start where you are.  Jesus made a promise in this verse to make you.  The hymn writer said, "Just as I am, without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou bidst me come to thee, O Lamb of God, I come, I come."  Coming to Jesus is the best thing that I've ever done and He is still making me.  It looks like I needed to make a lifelong commitment because it's going to take a lifetime for Him to make me all the things that He wants me to be.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'He's Revealing More.'   When I first received Jesus I knew Him as my Savior but along the way He has revealed more and more about who He is.  I'm not more saved today than I was the day I received Him but I have received more information, revelation, and transformation.  Sunday evening, 'What's In The Seed?'  Everything God does He starts with a seed.  He starts with small things and moves them in small ways and if we are faithful with the little that we have to begin with, we will receive much more along the way. 
Don't forget to bring in your Christmas Shoe Boxes.  Martin McCarthy has done a great job in getting the Shoe Boxes out, we need to do our part and bring the Shoe Boxes in.   
Tickets will soon be on sale for the Christmas Banquet, we have limited seating so receive your tickets as soon as possible. 
Alice and I will be away next week.  As the Atlantic Canada Director for the Canadian Fellowship of Christian Ministries I host an area rally once a year.  This year we are in Botwood Newfoundland at the Agape Christian Fellowship Church.  Pray for all the leaders that come that they will receive a fresh touch from the Holy Spirit.
Continue to pray for those in need, lots of love, looking forward to seeing you soon, Pastor Kevin and Alice

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

It's only Thursday and it's a day early for my weekly email.  As we look back over our life we can see the divine timing of the Lord and how He worked things out for our good.  Even in the knowing that His timing has been right on we still don't like to wait.  Lord we pray, 'do it now.'  One man said he needed to sell a house in order to move.  Another person said that they needed to buy a truck.  Someone else maybe waiting for that special someone to come along.  Isaiah 40:31 "But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." It's often easier to quote a verse than it is to live it and it's always easier to quote this verse to others when you yourself are not waiting for anything.  Have you ever got fed up with waiting and tried to do something to make things better?  Well join the club, what club?  The one in your mind where you say to yourself, 'I won't do that again.'  Too much wanting and waiting will cause us to doubt.  'Oh,' we say, 'God must be late!'  It's by having faith and trust that keeps hope alive and they whisper to us, 'God will arrive right on time.'  Keep the faith, God won't be late, and your best days are yet to come.
This is time-change weekend so don't forget to get an extra hours sleep when you put your clock back 1 hour on Saturday evening.
This is Family Sunday so get ready, get ready, get ready.  The Lord has been using this event to bless all of us.  Our part in family Sunday is to bring some food and invite some friends, His job is to speak to the hearts of everyone and draw us closer to Jesus.  Every month the Holy Spirit has been faithful to arrive right on time and give us signs and wonders.  I will be sharing on, 'The Holy Spirit.'  The Holy Spirit has a job to do in each of us to form us, make us, and mold us into who He wants us to be.  There is no evening service on Family Sunday. 
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you all, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
