Shepherd’s Corner – December 29, 2019

Another year of God’s blessings and guidance is being shelved in our memories. Let’s be a church that remembers well. Let’s never forget all of God’s faithfulness and provisions in our lives and in the life of our church. This may not come naturally to us, so we need regular practice. So start with the easy ones: 1. recall any happy moments…

Every Christmas ought to remind us of God’s incredible faithfulness. The sending of His Son to us is not only an incredible gift and an amazing truth that God is with us (Immanuel); but it marks an important reminder of what lengths God goes in order to keep a promise, in order to remain faithful to His covenant. It’s not hard to…

You may have noticed the new sign in the front of our building. We are very thankful for the anonymous donor who offered to update the old tattered banner! Last month, while KM was using our chapel for weekday morning prayer and Wednesday Night Service, one of the KM members noticed the tattered banner. They had the desire to offer to improve…

As part of our theme of “Be a Witness”, starting in January we will be doing the e100 Essential Bible Reading Plan from Scripture Union. One of the most important tools of being a witness is the Bible; because where do we best find out about Jesus? His Scriptures. So let’s familiarize ourselves with God’s Word. Instead of starting from the OT,…

Happy Thanksgiving Sunday! If you are not in the regular habit of thinking what you are thankful for, at least we have the calendar to remind us. Let’s think about what we are thankful for this year. Let me help you by giving you 4 categories to think about what to be thankful for: 1. World 2. Work/Studies 3. Family 4. Church…

As we witness the public confession of faith by 4 of our brothers today, it is so wonderful to have these reminders that our God is mighty to save. We first celebrate God’s love and grace for his mercy on us and then let’s give thanks that God’s salvation is greater than our sin. It is a blessing to have such regular…

Next week’s newcomer’s luncheon is something we do every trimester (every 4 months). I’m thankful that we are able to welcome and greet new people to our ministry. If you’ve joined us during the past 3 months, welcome! And I want to encourage our current members to reach out and sit with a new person for at least 4 weeks. Sit with…

Last Thursday we had a chance to be a witness to our community. There weren’t many that were able to make it to go door to door to hand out mugs and invite the neighborhood to church and Hallelujah Night, but there were many that came to help out with Hallelujah Night to setup and to break down all the booths. I’m…

Shepherd’s Corner – october 27, 2019

Today is Reformation Sunday. It’s the annual reminder of the stand that was made for the Church to remember that God’s word ought to be our only authority for our understanding of salvation and faith (Sola Scriptura); that it is only by God’s grace we are saved (Sola Gratia) and not by the payment of indulgences, which only requires faith (Sola Fide)…
