Together



This Sunday is National Back to Church Day. Our theme is TOGETHER. Many things are done better together. For example, I enjoy singing but when I sing with my wife Laurie we can make harmony together, something I cannot do alone. Harmony is beautiful but it takes more than one to make music in harmony.

Hebrew 10:25 says "And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near." Yes, we can worship alone at home and should do that on a daily basis. But when we come together for worship we are following the example of Jesus and putting the scriptures into practice. We need the encouragement that comes from "meeting together."

Join with me in prayer for Back to Church Sunday. Plan on attending and invite a friend to come to.

It is an honor to serve as your pastor.

Let 'Em In

In 1976 Paul McCartney and the band Wings recorded a song titled “Let 'Em In’. It became a big hit. In the song he mentions several family members as well as some famous people. He simply says “Someone’s knocking at the door, someone’s ringing the bell. Do me a favor, open the door and let 'em in.”

In Revelation 3:20, Jesus said, “Look, I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and we will share a meal together as friends.” Jesus wants to have a living relationship with you, but you must open the door of your heart and let Him in. Jesus spoke these words to the church at Laodicea. They had become lukewarm in their love for Christ. They were blessed and didn’t think they needed more of Christ. However, they had become lukewarm in their love for Him. Open the door of your life afresh and new to Jesus. Let Him be your first love and treasure.

Join with me in prayer for this Sunday’s services. Also, invite or bring someone with you to church this week. It is an honor to serve as your pastor.

Work and rest: we need a balance of both.

In 1894 Congress set aside Labor Day as a holiday to honor the American worker.

The Bible says that we should "enter His rest," the rest that only the Lord can give. On this coming Labor Day weekend, I encourage you to rest in Christ. He said, "Come to me all who are weary and carry heavy burdens and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)

This Sunday we will study how to receive the rest that only He can give. Invite someone to come and worship with us. If you will be traveling I pray for safe travel for you and your family.

It is an honor to serve as your Pastor.
