Hope you are having a blessed day.  I have always felt that a healthy home and a healthy church require the same things.  Family verses Church.  When a group of people come together who are seeking the purposes of God we could call it family or church.  Keeping together is a process where we learn to love each other for who they are.  Working together happens as we learn to lean on each other to fulfill His purposes.  Staying together is called unity and it will require maturity on the part of each member.  2 Corinthians 4: 16-17 "Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."
Get ready, get ready, get ready as we are having another great Family Sunday!  We start @10:15 with food and fellowship followed by the morning service.  With us will be the Lumber River Quartet to share their gift in music.  I will also be sharing, 'Prepared for Success.'  Success is a prepared place and we can't just want success but we must be prepared for success.  Don't forget to bring some food and invite a friend.
An update; We have had yet another delay in our endeavor to purchase the former St. Anthony  Daniel church.  It seems our requirement for enough parking is the problem.  We made this item very clear in the beginning that not enough parking would be for us a deal breaker and it seemed to be clearly understood.  Since then there have been other interest within their organization about the use of the property that have come into play.  We don't feel that anyone has done anything wrong or misleading but all the information about the internal plans they had for the land were not clear and it took this process to find these things out.  We do feel that God will in the next few weeks either open the door and we will proceed with joy or with joy we will move on to something else that the Lord has for us.  Our God is bigger than anything that we can or cannot see.  James 1:2-4 "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.  But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing."
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice.

Isaiah 41:10 "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."  It's interesting how the promises of God can be applied to all of us, regardless of our circumstances.  The revelation of His Word is that it's been written to help us, lead us and guide us as His children.  As long as there are any of His children on the earth His promises are yes and amen to those that believe.  The battle to walk in peace is not found in believing that God can help, but the victory is discovered when we truly believe God will help us no matter what!  May the Prince of Peace walk with you today.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing, 'Do You Have A License?' It's hard to stop doing something wrong when you feel that you have a license to do it.  I'm a police officer so I can speed if I want to.  I was hurt as a child so I can be in a rage if I want to.  What's in your wallet?   
Next Sunday is.... get ready get ready get ready FAMILY SUNDAY.  We start @10:15 with food and fellowship followed by the morning service.  Bring some food and invite some friends.  We will also have with us on Family Sunday 'the Lumber River Quartet.'  And yes this year there will be four of them singing.

Good morning to all the faithful.  Have you ever met someone who was having a bad day?  They were under a cloud and it had been raining.  I think Noah and his family knew what it was to have a rainy day but when it ended God sent a rainbow as a sign that the rain was over and a great change had taken place.  Ezekiel the Prophet heard from God after he was reminded about the rainbow.  Ezekiel 1:28 "Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. So when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of One speaking."  When you meet people who are under a cloud could it be that God has brought you to them for you to be their rainbow?  Could it be that you are their breath of fresh air and God uses you to make them feel that the sun, His Son, is breaking through?  I believe that God does this all the time so may you brighten and give hope to everyone you meet today.
This Sunday I'll be sharing on, 'I Can See Clearly Now.'  When I look back at where I've been I can see clearly that God has always been with me.  I can see that all that I know has been deposited in me along the way.  Invite a friend to hear a revelation from Heaven.
Continue to pray for all those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
