    Help For Weak Prayers

    Help For Weak Prayers

    August 9, 2020

    When it comes to prayer, every one of us is a beginner. What a surprise, then, when we discover that God is not disappointed by our weak attempts to pray! God’s promise is that he cherishes each prayer -- even the ones where we can’t find any words at all.
    Verse of Promise: “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” Romans 8:26

    Incomparable Glory - August 2, 2020

    August 2, 2020

    When we’re hurting, it’s no use pretending that we’re not. And it doesn’t help much to think of others who have it worse. But during hard times, one way we hang on is to keep looking forward and believing in the promise that God’s best is yet to come. We are promised that one day all our earthly pain, loss, and suffering will be like a dream from which we’ve awakened.
    Verse of Promise: “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18

    July 26, 2020 (Guest Pastor - Russ Tompkins)

    Have you ever been blessed just by someone’s smile? Maybe you were expecting their anger and instead you got a grin that said they were glad to see you. That loving welcome is exactly what we get from God. And we’re promised that the inner voice of the Holy Spirit will speak to our hearts, telling us we are God’s children.

    Condemned No More - July 19, 2020

    July 19, 2020

    By our sinful, rebellious actions we bring condemnation on ourselves. But our sin is no match for God’s grace, brought to us through his son Jesus. When we belong to him we receive the promise that condemnation is no more.
    Verse of Promise: “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1

    Beyond Masking & Distancing - July 12, 2020

    July 12, 2020

    As members of both a church community and the community at large, we disagree on which precautions are necessary in a pandemic. There’s no surprise there -- when have we completely agreed on anything? In the first century, Jesus’s people in Rome were advised to not quarrel over “disputable matters.” And they learned what was more important than being right.
