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,
March 26, 2023. King George V wrote on the flyleaf of the Bible of a friend, "The secret of happiness is not to do what you like to do, but to learn to like what you have to do." It is hard to learn to like something you don't like. I don't know of anyone that enjoys being told "No." I don't like hearing the word "No."
Jesus said no on several occasions. He said "no" to ordinary human requests. A man said, "Let me bury my father before I follow you." Jesus said, "No; let the dead bury their dead."
Martha said, "Tell my sister, Mary, to help me with the housework." Jesus said, "No, she has chosen the better part." And to the Geresene demoniac who said, "Let me follow you," Jesus said, "No, give witness to your people."
In most cases, when we hear the word "No," it means we will not be doing things our way. My way is never better than God's way.
Pray for the service today as we think about "When God says no."
