Plans for Sunday Due to Fire

God is truly good. We have experienced His goodness as a body this week. As most of you know, this past Sunday night we had a small fire in our electrical room inside the Gathering Place at our Josey location. The fire caused the sprinkler in that area to go off and as a result around 200 gallons of water spread across parts of the Gathering Place, a back restroom, the ele...

Special Notice: Small Fire

As we know God is good even through times of adversity. Last night around 9 pm, we had a small fire in the electrical closet inside the Gathering Place at our Josey location. We believe the fire started in the main electrical panel. The fire set off the smoke alarm and the heat set off a sprinkler head. By the time the fire department arrived around 200 gallons of water we...

I Will Give You The Keys

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Matthew 16.19 This past Sunday we learned the following about the church from Matthew 16.13-19: The church are redeemed people People become the church by the revelation of the FatherJe...

Members of One Another

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10.23-25 Lately, the thought of the church and how ...

Engaging the Membership Process

It is with great delight that I write to you. Over the last four to five months we have been praying along with our brothers and sisters at Trinity Valley Church about the potential of our two local bodies becoming one. On this Sunday, October 23, the potential of what could be is now becoming a reality. I echo what King David proclaims in Psalm 133 saying, How good and pl...

Ekklesia

And He (the Father) put all things in subjection under His (Christ) feet, and gave Him (Christ) as head over all things to the church, which is His (Christ) body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1.22-23 According to the New Testament, the word church is the Greek word ekklesia, which means the called out ones, or the sent out ones. The church is Christ...

Our Purpose: The Glory of God

Moses said, "I pray You, show me Your glory!" Exodus 33.18 This past Sunday we begin looking at Our Purpose and Focus as a church. Over the next few weeks we will look intently into our focus. Sunday as we looked intently into our purpose I pray that you were encouraged to do all that you do for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10.31). This is why you and I exist. We exis...

Necessary

For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot says, "Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. And if the ear says, "Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 1 Corinthians 12.14 Paul, what about the pinky? You will notice...

Committing to Church Membership

As shared from Sunday, we live in a day when many people struggle with commitment phobia. We are afraid to commit to one thing because we are afraid that we might miss out on something else. We also believe this one thing that I commit to might cost me more than something else might, so we don't commit. So, what you have is simply the wisdom of our day, which is KEEP YOUR...

Christ's Baptism is the Gospel

The baptism of Christ is a pivotal event, one that shows us fulfillment of prophecy and the character of our Lord. It reminds us that all has been done for us in order to know and be with God. There is nothing we can do on our own to fulfill the righteousness that is lacking in us. It also sets forth an example for the church to follow. ...

Part of the Church: Friction and Fallout

I am not a big fan of the negative. I do not like to harp on it, nor discuss it. I am a half glass full kind of guy. So, to voluntarily write on friction and fallout as part of the church is not necessarily a thrilling topic for me, but a necessary one. In fact, Paul writes to the church at Corinth saying, For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear...

A Priority: Gathering Together

Hebrews 10.23-25 I wrote concerning this great section on t...
