We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
November 8, 2020
It was cold and windy today outdoors! But we still were able to gather together and worship as a congregation. The YouTube versions of the songs we sang are below.
All in all it was a great worship service, even if it WAS a little cold and windy.
Can someone bring coffee next week?
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 "Faithfulness" from 2 Timothy 2:1-15
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Abraham is kind to Lot.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
And we traveled to Samaria and Galilee in the Gospel of John, Chapter 4 as Jesus was invited and then stayed in Samaria for a couple of days. Then returns to Cana and meets an official who had a VERY important request to ask of Him.
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 5:1-12 (NASB)
Overcoming the World...
1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves the child born of Him.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and follow His commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.
4For whoever has been born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith.
5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
7 For there are three that testify:
8 the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
9 If we receive the testimony of people, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son.
10 The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son.
11 And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12 The one who has the Son has the life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
