MUSIC MINISTRY

 

God’s word tells us about the size of Heaven, that city of gold, but not the size of hell.  In reading the Bible in chapters like Matthew 13-14, hell is very large.  When we see all the evil in this world, see the hatred, lying, all the sinful things that men do, and with so many that blatantly deny Christ, hell will have to be large to accommodate them.  Thank God he has prepared a place of wondrous beauty for us that believe in Him.  We will have plenty of room in Heaven, not crowded like that other place.  May God bless us all!        Bro. Danny

 

 

 

 


YOUTH MINISTRY  

     

One of my favorite Casting Crown songs is titled, "Praise You In This Storm." A part of the song deeply moves me - “And I'll praise You in this storm / And I will lift my hands / For You are who You are / No matter where I am / Every tear I've cried / You hold in Your hand / You never left my side / And though my heart is torn / I will praise You in this storm”

Life brings us real difficulties, with real circumstances, with real emotions, with real pains. BUT the Bible tells us that God comforts us. Also, we are to not worry about anything, but pray for everything! 

Students, PLEASE Let us know if you are going to CAMP! The deadline is quickly approaching. Again, June 15-18 in PCB.  

Blessings, Cory Jones

  

YOUNG AT HEART

 

Great things are happening all around us! Spring-type temperatures have encouraged many to work in their yard or gardens.  Trees are budding and azaleas are in full bloom, adding to the beauty. New life abounds and plants sprout new growth - all marvelous wonders of Spring. In our church, we are seeing new growth as well! Our interim, Dr. Stan Davis is leading us through a series of lessons which lead to Easter morning, and many of us are growing in knowledge about the cross. Our Children's ministry is growing by leaps and bounds and Wednesday night prayer service is back! Sunday School for all age groups began March 7 and we may soon begin Sunday night Bible study. So many opportunities for study, fellowship and worship!

I encourage each of you to attend these wonderful services. Get involved with our food pantry, Operation Christmas Child, and many other service opportunities of our church. We will begin our Young at Heart meetings in May, so I look forward to a wonderful time of fellowship with all of you. There's excitement in the air...be a part of it!

Love each of you. Reva
