We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
October 18, 2020
What a beautiful fall day we had at outdoor church today!
God provided a very nice, cool breeze for us.
We met as a congregation and worshiped outdoors.
This page was live a few days ago, but NOW the sermon and the prayer requests are updated too.
Of course we continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship today. So even if you cannot join us, we'd still like to pray for you.
Give us a call or email Pastor Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org to request prayer.
COVID-19 Protocols in Our Church
Yes! We are still meeting outside.
Here are some photos of what our outdoor worship area
looks like before the folks show up.
We hope to see YOU in one of these social distanced chairs with us soon!
This weekend we have prepared a worship page for you that includes...
Thursday Night's Bible Study PowerPoint AND the Zoom meeting recording.
The topic was "Dedication" from Philippians 2:2-16.
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Noah's family and the animals are rescued by from the flood.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
We hope this continues to bless YOU and draws you closer to God.
Remember, Denise and I are a phone call away if you want to pray together or just chat.
(Also remember that God is NOT far away, He has promised that He would never leave us - can I get an "Amen"!)
And don't forget to comment below about anything that we can help you with.
Or any conversation you would like to start.
Thanks for all of your support!
For Him and His Kingdom,
Pastors Harvey & Denise

The Love of God
Sung by: Mercy Me
Song - The Love of God
Artist - Mercy Me
After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
I John 3:13-24(NASB)
13 Do not be amazed, [then,] brothers, if the world hates you.
14 We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers. Whoever does not love remains in death.
15 Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him.
16 The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.
17 If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him? 18 Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.
Confidence Before God
19 [Now] this is how we shall know that we belong to the truth and reassure our hearts before him
20 in whatever our hearts condemn, for God is greater than our hearts and knows everything. 21 Beloved, if [our] hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence in God
22 and receive from him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
23 And his commandment is this: we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another just as he commanded us.
24 Those who keep his commandments remain in him, and he in them, and the way we know that he remains in us is from the Spirit that he gave us.

2020-10-18 - Here is the Sermon/Message
The Gospel of John 2:23-3:21
Jesus & Nicodemus
Correction - Several times Pastor Harvey refers to venomous snakes as "poisonous" snakes. Venomous snakes bite with poison in their fangs, poisonous snakes are deadly to eat. That is difference. Sorry for the confusion...
Let Them See You
