A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians
We believe the main reason the church exists is to learn about Christ so that we can proclaim Him to the world. Therefore, bible study is an essential part of our church.
We are also called to worship Christ with joy and build each other up in fellowship and service. Being apart of the church body is living life in a community that helps each other thrive.
Rev. Dr. Ron Scates serves as our supply pastor.
We continue to search for the person God is preparing to take over as permanent pastor of our church.
In his retirement, Ron is sharing his gift of ministry and leadership while also supporting church planting in Jakarta, Indonesia throughout the year.
This week we will be discussing Lesson #25 Luke Chapter 20. If you recall, Jesus had just cleansed the temple of folks that were making it very hard for people to come to God and began teaching them the truth. This did not sit very well with the leaders because Jesus was usurping their privilege and power. The Scripture we will be discussing is filled with attempts by the leaders to challenge the authority of Jesus. Of course these challenges all fail miserably. Last night, Katy and I want to watch an animated movie based on John Bunyan's book, Pilgrim's Progress. The story revolves around a man who is seeking the eternal King and His kingdom. As I watched the movie, I was thinking about our lesson in Luke 20. I saw myself clearly in the main character. His struggles with doubt, fear, distraction, pride and self kept him from knowing the the power of the eternal King. The question of who do I trust is always before me. How about you?
This Sunday Charolette will be leading us in worship and Ron will be giving us God's message from Mark Chapter 8. He has entitled it "The Grinch Who Stole Easter"! I am looking forward to hearing what God has to tell us through Ron's message on a glorious Easter Sunday in which we celebrate a Risen Savior who has defeated sin and death! Please come and celebrate our powerful King this Sunday with hearts filled with joy over what He has done for us.
I look forward to hearing what the Holy Spirit has taught you in this week's lesson.
See you Sunday!
