Hey Church Family. Are you in a battle with the enemy? If you are not in a battle right now, there will come a time when Satan and his demons will strategize to try and defeat you. This Sunday, I am going to teach from James 4:7-8 on why it is important to Meet with God so that we can Defeat the Enemy. Do you have a plan and strategy to defeat the Enemy? Is it working? I encourage you to come this Sunday and let's learn from God's Word on How to Defeat the Enemy. I look forward to worshipping the Lord with you Sunday. - Pastor Byron ... See MoreSee Less
Hey church family. God was gracious to us today as we looked at the first actions that James tells us we need to do to Defeat the Enemy. We will be looking at this passage again next week. Be there next week so we can continue to learn from God's Word on how to Meet with God to Defeat the enemy! - Pastor Byron.
Hey Church family. Can prayer and fasting actually accomplish anything? I can answer with a resounding,Yes! This Sunday, August 11, we will look at three examples of the power in Prayer and Fasting. We will look at three stories where God does great things. We will look at Nehemiah in Nehemiah 1 and 2. We will also look at Jesus in Luke 4:1-15 and we will look at the early church in Acts 13:1-3. I want to encourage you to read these passages before Sunday and look at the situation and ask of the passage - What is the purpose of the fast? What was the attitude of the person/people fasting? and What was the result of the fast?
I look forward to sharing this sermon with you and seeing how God will use this in our lives and in our church.
We will also be singing a new song this Sunday called "God is For Us." This is a great song to sing as we consider that as we are praying and fasting, we can know that God is For us! This song has a great line in the Bridge - "Neither height nor depth can separate us. Hell and Death will not defeat us. He who gave His son to free us holds me in His love!" Let's sing this great truth boldly to our God this Sunday!
God has been good to us as we have been studying Fasting and Prayer in our Meeting with God series. Last Sunday I challenged every person to take some time for us to pray over a few needs that we have as a church. I want to remind you of those needs and encourage you to find some time to fast from a meal and spend time praying for our church. Your prayers can be more than what I list but I want us to seek His face together because we believe that God has all power to accomplish these things.
1. Pray for Vision for our church As our church grows, pray for clear vision from God on how to expand our Sunday Small Groups to provide more room in the near future. As our church grows, we want to begin working on our Master Plan for our property. Pray for God to lead us to plan well.
2. Pray for our upcoming Wednesday Ministries Launch (Aug. 28). Our leaders are working on finalizing some important decisions regarding curriculum and schedule for how our Wednesday night ministries will look. Pray that God will bless our Wednesday ministries and provide all the workers and leaders that we will need.
3. Pray for Future Leaders. As our church grows we will need more Elders and Deacons. Pray that God will raise up those who need to serve in this area.
4. Pray for Spiritual Victory. There are some members who are battling with the enemy over temptations and they need victory.
5. Pray for our church to have a genuine Hunger for God.
6. Pray that God will give us Laborers for the Harvest and let's pray that God will give us a Harvest of souls for His Kingdom!
This Sunday, we will have some time in our service where we will pray over these together as well.
Yet another Sunday we were able to rejoice in the Lord through baptism. Watch this video testimony and see what the Lord has done and is doing in Mary's life. We are thankful and excited to see God work! ... See MoreSee Less
Hey Church family. I look forward to being back with you to share God's Word this Sunday! I will be continuing our Meeting with God series as we look at the practical ways on How we can meet with God in prayer. Do you ever wonder what you should pray? Do you ever wonder when is it wrong to pray the same thing over and over? And how do we expect God to answer our prayers if we have unforgiveness in our hearts toward others? I hope you will join me on Sunday as we look at Jesus' answers to these questions in Matthew 6:7-15. I want to encourage you to read this ahead of time and then pray that God will meet with us as we seek to meet with Him! - Pastor Byron
Hey church family, We are looking forward to worshiping together with you on Sunday. This Sunday we will be bringing back a new song we sang a few weeks ago, “He is Our God”. This is such a great song of declaring who God is, His power, His grace, and His holiness. We encourage you to click on the link and listen to the song and come eager Sunday morning ready to declare together that He IS our God! - Andrew www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmBNn-u2vT4...

Our New Mermory Verse for July & August is Psalm 40:1-5. 1 I waited patiently for the Lord ; he inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord . 4 Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie! 5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told. ... See MoreSee Less
