This Sunday, we will be honoring Mother’s, and Ladies in the congregation. We will have a chance to celebrate the ways they have gifted our lives, and often increased our faith. The message will be on Love. The challenge to love others and to remain strongly grounded in the love of Christ in our lives. It is appropriate that we will be talking about love on Mother’s Day, as often our Mother’s model sacrificial love to us. Please plan on bringing the ladies in your life to Church on Sunday. Blessings! Rev. Mike

Jesus’ mission for our church, (why we exist) is all about growing our faith! We are commissioned with a purpose—Growing a Love Relationship with Christ. Our commission is then to go, be and make disciples of Christ. I can think of no more noble purpose for life or any work that makes greater impact for eternity.

Christ Works! Some of us Baby Boomers were raised up with the Captain Penny rule; “You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool Mom. She’s pretty smart and pretty nice, if you do what Mom says, you won’t go far wrong.” A Mother’s primary goal, (a responsibility she’s entrusted by God) is get the “smart” and “right” ways transferred to her children! Her mission is to give them Courage to be independent, Faith to rely on God and Wisdom to make mature decisions! As kids observe her counsel, I am convinced we won’t go far wrong. In John 21, Jesus is at the intersection of the transfer of the mission to His disciples. Prior to His departure to heaven, Jesus must resolve an awkward relationship. He will confront Peter about the inconsistency in his loyalty. This Sunday in worship (Mother’s Day), we will consider the gap between what was and what will be--how loyalty effects not just family but our relationship with Christ. We will hear God’s path for restoring what’s been broken. This Sunday at 9 AM we invite all to gather for worship in the Sanctuary or North parking lot (89.5 FM #Lot4praise)! We will sing, Pray together, Celebrate moms and I am excited to share a message from John 21, “At the Intersection of Failure and Restoration!” In Christ. Pastor Larry
