We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
October 25, 2020
It was a beautiful fall morning for worship today!
We were outdoors, had a cool 64 degrees with no rain.
A couple of our attending ladies made cookies and cheesecake forthe participants today.
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 "Service" from Philippians Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 3
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Noah's family and the animals are rescued by from the flood, the ark lands safely and God makes a BIG promise to everyone!
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
And we finished Chapter 3 in the Gospel of John! Moving on to John 4 next weekend.
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

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
I John 4:1-6 (NASB)
Testing the Spirits
4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God;
3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.
4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
5 They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them.
6 We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
