Time for a Change?


    Some people welcome fall as a blessed relief from the heat and humidity of summer; others dread the season as a harbinger of the frigid cold of winter that lies around the corner. Whatever your personal take on autumn it can hardly be disputed that it is indeed one of the most beautiful seasons of change in the year. Trees burst forth with brilliant colors of reds, orange and yellow.

    It is a brilliant display of God’s wonderful artistry. Another change that can be just as thrilling is the difference Christ can make in a person’s life by taking away the dark drab hues of sin and replacing them with the vibrant shades of a new life in Christ.

    The Bible says “If any man (person) be in Christ he is a new creature (creation), old things pass away and all things become new.

    No matter how stuck you may feel in your life you should know that ‘change’ is possible.

    Jesus said, “Come unto me all you that are heavy laden (burdened with trouble) and learn of me… and you shall find rest for your souls!”  

    November is a a beautiful and reflective time of the year. It is one of my favorite seasons to preach in. I take time during my message preparations to personally thank the Lord for His abundant goodness to my life, family and ministry. This year I will be bringing messages that hopefully will help us to overcome discontentment in our hearts by learning the value of authentic thanksgiving. just learning to offer genuine gratitude to the Lord can do wonders to improve your outlook on life without adding a penny to your bank account. As we about to plunge into the mad rush of the holidays please join us and take a few Sunday mornings to slow down and breath. You'll be glad you did.

    Be sure to mark your calendar for November 21 so you won't miss our annual Thanksgiving Service. This is a Tuesday night and replaces our customary Wednesday midweek service. It is a special service designed to enjoy our family of faith before we celebrate with our earthly family on Thursday. We will share reflections on how God has blessed us in this year and show our appreciation for those we love. We will also observe the Thanksgiving Meal our Lord gave to us to remember Hi death until He returns! 

   In addition to special services this month we will meet each Wednesday to study the Bible together and pray for one another as the Lord commanded us to do. There may be some other events that 'pop' up, so check back periodically on our calendar page as it will be updated with new events. We look forward to worshiping with you in the near future. If you have any questions or need further clarification on these events feel free to contact the church office at 947-0367

I Thank My God On Every rememberance of You,

Pastor Steve Parks
