"Following Jesus in Obedience: The New Beginning" - A Special Service for Children of All Ages!!!
This coming Sunday, we will be celebrating children of all ages. The children will be singing. Pastor Brian Pinson will present a special message just for them (and for the adults) about how to follow Jesus by being obedient to Him, using the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist as an example. We will be celebrating two baptisms as well. Mark 10:13-14 emphasizes the importance of bringing children to Him. "And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, 'Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.'" Jesus holds children very precious in His sight ... we must never hesitate in teaching and leading our children to Him. If you want to know more, please join us in person or online for this service. Everyone is welcome!Continue reading
This Sunday, Pastor Brian Pinson will present Part II of his sermon "The Christian's Spiritual Armor - SHIELD OF FAITH". Part I of the "SHIELD OF FAITH" message provided an in depth history of the purpose, design, and use of the shield in Roman warfare. The shield was primarily used as a means of protection when the Roman army went into battle formation. This week, the focus is "The Protection of the Shield of Faith" that God provides for us when we encounter spiritual attacks from the ruler of darkness - Satan. Spiritual warfare is so intense that nothing can stand against it apart from God's divine power and strength working in us and through us. God's Word gives us the means of "putting on" the whole armor of God by putting Him first and foremost in our lives. He gives us His power and strength through praying for His will, reading His Word, believing in His promises, and being obedient to the leading by the Holy Spirit.
Are you ready for battle? To find out more about the "Shield of Faith", we invite you to join us either in person or online, to hear this message. Everyone is welcome!
