Real People, Real Life

Life happens everyday and we don't want you to face it alone. We are a church made up of real people, leading people toward a real Jesus. We hope that you will come to one of our services and join a small group to experience for yourself the relevant teaching for every stage of life.

 

Church Family and Friends

October 6, 2022. Our Sunday School lessons have been from the Book of James for the last few weeks. James reminds us we are servants, and servants serve. Jesus set the example for the disciples. Jesus was the best teacher ever. Jesus was like a player-coach, and he lived out his teachings. Jesus was always taking action.

A young boy running an errand for his mother had just bought a dozen eggs. Walking out of the store, he tripped and dropped the sack. All the eggs broke, and the sidewalk was a mess. The boy tried not to cry. A few people gathered to see if he was OK and to tell him how sorry they were. In the midst of the works of pity, one man handed the boy a quarter. Then he turned to the group and said, "I care 25 cents worth. How much do the rest of you care?"

(James 2:15) If a brother or sister be naked and destitute of daily food,

(James 2:16) And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

(James 2:17) Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

It is important to pray. It is equally important to act on what we know is Godly. Jesus us saves us and gives us the gift of eternal life. Jesus also empowers us to do the work of God. Prayer and Bible study result in taking action to complete the tasks God has for us to do.
