A Word for the Week

Much prayer, time and effort has been put into the framework of ministry here at First over the past few months. Wednesday's have become the most strategic outreach opportunity we currently have as a collective body. Youth and children are coming in good numbers and parents are beginning to do more than bring them--they're joining them. Many adults are joining the work, as well. Sunday evenings are centered on the biblical disciplines of prayer, discipleship & outreach. The framework is in place for fruitful ministry and yet framework without the filling of the Holy Spirit is little more than a skeleton without muscle and tissue, not to mention, the all important breath of life.

A Word for the Week

Paul wrote to Timothy and to all who have ears to hear-- "Do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the fellowship of the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began." 2 Timothy 1:8-9 If there was ever a time for boldness in our witness, the time is now, the need is urgent and we must respond with the confident assurance that we are not alone in our commission of the gospel.

A Word for the Week

There are three major points of encouragement that helps us on any given day of any given week, no matter what we are facing, fighting or fleeing from. The first is--God will not forsake His own. Hebrews 13:5-6 says--"Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.' So we may boldly say; 'the Lord is my Helper; I will not fear, what man can do to me." People may abandon God, but He never takes the initiative to abandon His own. The second is--God will not fail His own. Luke 12:27-28 says "Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all
