Welcome to our Website!

November is Here

All month long we will be doing a Sermon Series entitled “How to be a Church” and it will take us almost completely through the remainder of 1st Thessalonians. With all that is going on in our country and our world, there may be no better time for us to consider exactly what the Bible says about being a church. For, as Christ’s ambassadors we are going to need to be ready for whatever the future holds.
In the first week of November we will have the opportunity to vote for our nation’s leaders, and I encourage everyone to prayerfully consider who they believe will lead and make decisions that will best honor God, and then exercise your right to vote. But know that whoever or whatever party wins, God’s will, will be done. Our role is not to change the society through government, but to change the people that make up the society through the Gospel.
This election may slow the nation’s decline or it may not, but either way, we are called to be Christ’s church and like Esther we have been born for a time such as this. So, let us be ready for whatever the future may hold and to give a defense to everyone who asks us to give an account for the hope that is in us.

Prayer Request

Good Morning Beloved,

I’m emailing you this morning to let you know that at 6pm last night Asaph Sonntag won his victory over cancer and went home to be with His precious Lord and Savior.
Please pray for Elvira and their family as they grieve the loss of a husband and a father.

Elvira, is currently planning to visit us in the near future for a memorial service, so I will keep you posted on the details when they are confirmed.
In His Grace,

Mark J. Elkins
