Newsletter - February 2016

2016 is counting down with January already gone. How well did you start out the year? Have you read your Bible every day, and was you at church? We had a record number in Sunday school with 30 in attendance and we were missing some of you. Keep up the good effort. We had seven people 4 of them being youth attend the first March for Life Central in Alexandria hope that you will consider attending next year. I hope that you will join us this Sunday as we learn more from God’s Word and by all means bring a friend with you.

Now here is what we can see going in right now:

  • we had a movie night Fri 5 Feb
  • Feb 14 Valentine’s Day

Now for the pastor‘s bite: February is a month that we look at love all around. We consider the love with our spouses, children and grandchildren but what about our love for God? You might say well I can’t give God a box of chocolates and this is true but you can show Him your love in other ways. Jesus tells us in John 14:21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” (NIV) So we see here that buy keeping gods commandments we show him love. Jesus adds a new commandment that we are to love our neighbor as our self, and here lies how we can show God love by showing love to our neighbor. This can be anything done as “simple acts of kindness in Jesus’ name.” let me encourage you to look for ways this month to show God’s love to others and to show God that love through that action. You can also come and join us at church as we worship Him and study His word. I hope you have a Blessed Valentine’s Day and I‘ll save you a seat on Sunday.

In Christ’s Love

Pastor, Eugene

Reminder: Sunday school starts at 10am and worship starts at 11am Praise with the youth 9:30am
