We were encouraged today from Ephesians 3:15-19
‘For Years I relied on my own ability to live like a Christian...but it was burden I was not meant to bear. Genuine Christian living is only possible through the power of the Holy Spirit.’ -mike curry
We’ve been thinking all lot lately about prayer.. on Sunday we enjoyed our 4th bible study on the topic of prayer.. and tonight it was so encouraging to ‘make our requests known’ to the God of heaven. So thankful for a God who listens!
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people”. Ephesians 6:18
‘Sometimes as humans we complicate the GOOD NEWS Gospel.....but it is not complicated - It was never suppose to be complicated. Salvation is for all, and it can be yours today!’
‘Salvation comes with so much more than just being saved from Hell, and eternal life in Heaven.......there is JOY, true Joy now, and the presence of God in your life!’
Last night we were thankful to have Vince Giraldi with us to share a word of Good News at our community dinner! The place was packed, and the bellies were full as we heard that the Gospel not only shows us our condition before God, but it gives us the solution - forgiveness through Christ! Praise God!
Come back again soon Vince!
At Lampstand, we are starting the new year off with testimonies! Yesterday we were blessed to hear three unique stories of faith of how God saved and continues to work in the lives of three of our church members. It was amazing to hear how God used different circumstances and situations individually catered to each of them to bring them to Christ! Cause God is like that...He knows we are individuals and pursues us individually! He loves us that much! We will be continuing testimony sharing next week as well, so if you would like to hear more stories of faith, please join us next Sunday at 11am. All are welcomed!
We are all about the ‘gospel’! All about ‘good news’ and Christmas is where the best news began!
‘Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners!’ 1 Timothy 1:15
Last week we were so blessed to have Stephen Vance with us for the day. Stephen shared with us in ‘breaking of bread’ (communion/worship) service and then shared teaching from the word of God, the bible. Thankyou Stephen for encouraging and reminding us about our security in God’s salvation!
Tomorrow we are diving into session 2 of Andy Stanley’s 3 part Christmas series titled ‘Who Needs Christmas?’ We have found out in session 1 that the World needed Christmas. Tomorrow we will hear how God ‘needed’ Christmas.
Join us at 11am for Coffee before the study...All will be warmly welcomed.
Such a wonderful evening! Thankful for every bit of love shown to us by those who supported this and helped make it happen and to @willwalkermusic for sharing in our effort to proclaim the reason Jesus came!
Another reason last night was so special! Two amazing organizations that proclaim the amazing and transforming message of the Gospel while meeting physical needs! #teenchallenge an amazing faith based program for addiction rehabilitation through the power of a relationship with Christ. This program is near and dear to us and we have witnessed, close to home, the incredible power of God through this program.
Also @compassionca a sponsorship based program ‘releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name.
Last nights Christmas Concert was special for many reasons... and we will post some more images later, but for now here’s a high light. Together and united in prayer. A few different churches represented but the goal was the same... that the light and hope of Jesus would be made real to many hearts in our community through this effort! Heartfelt thanks to @willwalkermusic for sharing your talents with us for the sake of the one true King and for the many believers that came ...from afar to support this effort!
Colossians 4:2 ESV
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.
Romans 15:5-6 ESV
May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
