Love Is A Verb; So Is Faith

In a story at the end of the Gospel of John the Disciple Peter was asked several times by the Lord if he loved Him.  Peter replied each time, “You know that I love you.”  Peter was then asked by the Lord to “Feed My lambs”.
The Lord was making a point.  Our faith (pictured by Peter) has a tendency to believe that saying something or knowing something makes for a living faith.  Faith needs to be acted on in order to become a living faith. In other words, our religion can only become real or living if we do what is good.
You are invited to dig more into this with us on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. or you can watch the service live on our Facebook page.

Having Difficulty? Approach It From Love

After the events of Easter the disciples decided to go fishing.  They fished all night and caught nothing.  In the morning a man appeared on the shore and said to cast the net on the right side of the boat and they would catch fish.  They did and caught 153 fish.  They quickly realized that the man was Jesus.
In all of our pursuits in life if we can remember to approach things from “the right side” (from love, charity, and kindness) we will be fruitful.  Trying to do things from human ingenuity or the attitude, “I am right” we will be frustrated.
If in all our interactions with others (marriage, friendships, parenting, the workplace, and so on) we can remind ourselves, “Let’s approach this in a loving way.”  And then ask, “In what way can I come from a heart of love, kindness and goodness?”  Or simply say, “Okay, let’s fish from the right side,” as a reminder.  See what happens.
You are invited to worship at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Easter Celebration, Sunday 10:30 a.m.

Please join us for an Easter Celebration this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.  One of the ways we commemorate the event in the service is to have a time to bring flowers forward as a token of gratitude and love to the Lord for the blessings of life and the promise of eternal life. We hope to see you then. Happy Easter!

An Easter Egg hunt for the children will follow the service.
