I have always tried to see the church as a family. What a healthy church should look like is what you would see in a healthy home. Early this morning as I was praying I thought about us having unity among us, in order to learn to work in harmony together, that we might create a sound within us, that flows out from among us, that would reach Heaven and change earth. If we live outside the room of unity, then we are outside the reach of personal inward change. Without the willingness to change us to fit in with those that are around us there will never be the unity that we seek, to create the harmony that we need, to gain the results that we long for. My confidence in you is high that we are in the process of seeing great things happen at our Church and in all the churches that proclaim Jesus as Lord. Psalm 133:1&4 "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! ....For there the Lord commanded the blessing— Life forevermore." And in that place of unity among the people, the Lord commanded the blessing. We are learning how to become that place.
We have with us this weekend the musical family, "Double Portion." They will be doing a concert in Glace Bay at Bethel Family Church Saturday @7 and will be joining with us Sunday morning.
This for us is our Family Sunday. We start at 10:15 with food and fellowship followed by the morning service. Bring food and friends and I will be sharing a word, "Action Calls For Reaction." When others treat you badly they may not be the source of your problems. Let's go deeper together that we might be healed by the power of the Lord Jesus
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
