  • We Are Moving!

    The office that is! As you know, we closed on the office house last week. We had started getting the new office ready to move into by cleaning it out. This week we painted the walls, laid the flooring, and starting moving the furniture into it.


    We are nearly complete, so we could use some help in moving the remaining items and cleaning out the old office house. If you would like some office furniture, cleaning supplies, odd 'n ends, wood, chain link fencing, some tools, let me know. On Saturday, we will need help in making the final move if you can help us we'd really appreciate! Also we have some items that need to go to the hazardous waste disposal like paint, if you could help, that too would be greatly appreciated.


    Until then, keep praying for strong backs, no muscle strain, and cool weather. See you Sunday in person or on Facebook!


    Onward and Upward!

    Wow, what a week. As you know, we closed on the office house last week. We had started getting the new office ready to move into by cleaning it out. This week we painted the walls, laid the flooring, and starting moving the furniture into it.

      Personal Note by Pastor Alan

      Don't you just love that dog picture! I do, in fact I really like (could say love) dogs. One of the great characteristics is their loyalty to you. You can ignore them, get angry at them, and occasionally get very irritated at them for not being obedient. Yet, through it all they'll remain steadfast loyal to you.


      This Sunday in the sermon, we'll see how God can be counted on because He is faithful and steadfast in His love for us. We can be disobedient, rebellious, selfish, and act in many other sinful ways, but God still loves us and is there for us when we come back to Him. All we have to do is simply confess our wrong doing and repent of it and He'll restore us to full fellowship. That's the kind of God we have. Far more loyal than a dog, but sometimes, I think God created dogs so we can see more of Him in our lives. Think about that.


      Onward and Upward!

        Did the dog get your attention? That's why I used it. We live in a world of information overload. When you scroll through Facebook, do you stop on the posts with pictures and skip those without? I do a lot of times. It seems that we have been trained to stop and look at catchy or cute or compelling pictures.


        Have you ever thought about the ways God tries to get your attention? As believers, if we are not careful, we will tune God out because He doesn't catch our attention like the dog did. And yet, His pictures are all around us in creation, in His Word, in other people, and the way the Holy Spirit speaks to us. Our main problem is we just aren't interested in His message like Facebook posts without a picture or cartoon.


        God is so much more interesting than anything else we give our attention to. Let me encourage you to look for God this week and discover His message to you.

            Personal Note by Pastor Alan

            Over the last few weeks as I've worked on the weekly messages on prayer, I've pondered my prayer life. Becoming more consistent praying in ways that will please God is important. A professor at Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY encourages believers to pray a Psalm a day.


            It's easy to do. Pick a Psalm, read it, then pray it as if you were the one writing it. Make it personal. If the Psalmist is praying for deliverance from an enemy out to kill them, ask what enemy are you facing and pray for God's help with it. If it is a praise Psalm, then praise God from your heart. Pray as your the Spirit may prompt you.


            Which Psalm do you pray? Read five Psalms a day and choose one to pray that day. On the first day of the month read Psalm 1, 31, 61, 91, and 121. On the second day read 2, 32,62, 92, 122. See the pattern? Since there are 30 days at least in a month, whatever the day of the month it is read that Psalm then add 30 until you've read five. This way you will read all 150 Psalms in a month and pray 30 of them. What about the 31st? Read and pray Psalm 119 that day, since its the longest.


            I have really enjoyed doing this. It has enhanced my prayer life immensely and I'm sure it'll do the same for you!
