On Saturday, May 25th, our Men’s breakfast will begin at 8:00 am in the Church fellowship hall.  This is the date we will be kicking off the ROYAL AMBASSADOR’S program.  This group is for boys in the grades 1 thru 5.  We are encouraging all dads to attend, with their sons.  If you would like to help influence boy’s lives for Christ and don’t have sons that age, please join us anyway.  We will be taking the boys to the RANCH off Hwy 60.  There we will roast hot dogs, over an open fire, and discuss what the Royal Ambassadors program means.  We will explore the area and participate in other activities onsite. 

Boys if your Dad cannot come, for any reason, have someone bring you to the church.  We want you to be a part of this Special Day.  Transportation, food and drinks will be provided.  We should return to the church around 4:00 pm. 
Hope to see you there. 

Yours In Christ,
David Rocker

It is interesting to me how the world, in general, recognizes Christianity as a religion and will even practice some sort of celebration on Easter Sunday, but really do not understand or accept the real reason Easter even exists. Even Christian churches can’t wait to get out of church so they can take their children to hunt colored eggs in the hot Florida sun. Candy is handed out and we treat it like another day with some religious implications attached. Stop for a minute and think what was taking place in the spiritual world the day Christ rose from the grave. The cross was empty, but the grave had the body of Christ. Hell is reinforcing troops around the grave. Rumor has it that Jesus would come alive again and that could never happen if Satan was to win. While hell is frantic trying to make sure Jesus stays dead, Jesus is just waiting for the command from the Father to make his grand entrance into the history books. The first man to defeat death. Not just this once, but forever.

What Satan should have known and what we all need to remember is that Jesus was/is more than a man. He is God in the flesh. Our Savior, redeemer and soon coming King. Death could not hold him because he is all powerful. Sin could not stain him because he is holy, and time could not limit him because he is eternal. We should celebrate the resurrection every day. Why? Because without the resurrection there is no victory. A battle was won that you and I did not fight. A grave was occupied that we deserved and a cross was bled upon that we earned. It is time we stop talking about the victory won through Christ and start living the victory that is ours.

That is my perspective.

With Thanksgiving being over and the Christmas decorations and music almost everywhere we are starting the lessons on a series that of course leads up to Jesus’s birth.

The kiddos are so excited about Santa and presents that’s it’s hard for them to focus for long on anything else. I’m wanting to help them realize that God is always in control and he uses people and situations to accomplish his plan. We are planning on having a great month of fun with the kids and excitement while  learning about Jesus and the  events leading up to his birth. We have been up and down in attendance but had a great time the Sunday after Thanksgiving with a total of about 14 kids.

We always want parents to know that we enjoy your children and look forward to seeing them every Sunday.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

The Sunday School class is working with Ms. Bonnie on learning some worship songs we hope to perform for the church in the near future.

Every Sunday we are studying characteristics of our loving God. We have been sharing with each other how God blesses us daily. I am hoping to train them to look for his blessings in all that they do. In this day and age it is easy to focus on the negative and let it overshadow what a wonderful, loving God we have and how much he loves us and blesses us daily.

We are also learning to how to apply biblical principles to our life so that we shine the light of Jesus for the world to see.

We are continuing to emphasize that we can trust God no matter.

For a service project, we are planning to bake cookies to hand out one night during the Living Nativity and also a visit to a nursing home. As I get specific dates for these service projects, I will let you know.

Please continue to pray for our children and thank you again for sharing them with us each week!

WOMEN’S MINISTRY

It’s December!   Where did the year go?  Typical questions we ask ourselves every year.   We all seem so busy getting ready for the holidays,   visits with family and friends,   parties to attend,   gifts to buy, decorations to hang.

Many of us light up ours houses by stringing lights all around.   We decorate trees with hundreds of lights.  Can there be too many lights?   This year as you hang your lights think about the light that is within you.   Jesus said “You are the light of the world.  A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.”   Matthew 5:14

God did not intend that we should hoard this light.  He intended for us to share it.   Give this prayer a thought this month.

“Lord help me to step out of my comfort zone and seek to brighten some of the darkness around me.”

Pastor’s Perspective

I recently learned the difference between believing there is a God & trusting that God. Believing there is a God is nothing really exceptional. Multiple people claim to believe there is a God and the devils believe and tremble. So, believing there is a God is not the magic answer. The one thing we need to do is learn to trust Him and to trust Him means we believe what He said and obey it and you will only obey it if you trust Him. The Bible says he that comes to God must believe that He is God. “AND” that He rewards them who seek Him. He is the answer to everyone who trusts Him.

How do I know I am trusting Him? The first thing you have to do is make sure it is God who is doing the speaking. He always answers through His Word and all direct from God is aligns with God’s holiness and His character. Second, you just have to relax! This means I can have confidence and assurance that God is going to do what He said he will do. Quit trying to make it work. Stop the scheming and manipulation. If God said it, then it will happen. Believing and trusting God is a choice. It is a yes or no answer. I will or I won’t. I do or I don’t. Come unto me all that labor and are loaded with cares and I will give you rest.
