Prepare Our Hearts- May 3

This week in the morning service we will continue to see how Jesus calls us to live in the Kingdom of Heaven.  In Matthew chapter 6 (this week's text) Jesus particularly addresses three righteous practices (giving, praying, and fasting) telling us how to do them as God desires.  The next section begins a substantial discussion about wealth, making the statement "You can't serve both God and money."  Jesus then proceeds to give multiple examples about why God is the better investment in the long-term.

Memory Work Verse 4- Col. 3:15

Col. 3:15- Let the peace of Christ rule in all of your hearts, since as members of one body you all were called to peace. And be thankful. "Let the peace of Christ rule in all of your hearts".  What rules in your heart today?  I would love to say that Christ's peace rules everyday.  Love and patience exude out my pores like sweat on a humid July day.   I wish that were the case.

Prepare Our Hearts- April 19

This Sunday morning we are beginning our study of the Sermon on the Mount.  We are looking specifically at Jesus' words in Matthew 5:1-16, and what it means to live in "the Kingdom of Heaven".  Reading Matthew 4 (the beginning of Jesus Ministry) and Matthew 5-7 (the entire Sermon on the Mount) will give you a greater understanding of the context of this passage within the book of Matthew.  Looking at Psalm 24, Psalm 1, Exodus 19 & 20, and 1 Kings 8 will give a broader perspective from the whole Bible.  While you are reading pay close attention to two things; the ...

Second Verse for Memory Work- Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you all has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave all of you.
