A Thorn in the Flesh

This morning we gather together and celebrate communion, or what is also known as the Lord's Table.  This is a celebration that points us back to the sacrifice of Christ on our behalf.  The table, or celebration, is open to all who are trusting in Jesus Christ for their salvation.  Today will also take a look at the second book of Corinthians, Chapter 12, where the apostle Paul talks about a thorn in his flesh, something that God has allowed in his life to keep him from being conceited.

    Discouragement & Finding Your Way Back to Jesus
    Ever feel yourself slipping into discouragement?  We all get discouraged from time to time.  We get discouraged when we are overwhelmed by circumstances or when we start complaining, comparing, or constantly looking inward.  The Israelites were no different than us!  Today we'll look at their pattern of grumbling: where it led to and what the remedy is.  If you live life, you get down.  The key is to keep finding your way back to Jesus!

    Mother’s Day
    Happy Mother's Day!!!  Today we will look at the life of a mother whose name is remembered, revered, and often wrongly perceived.  She is known by just one name: Mary.  She had the singularly unique task of bearing our Savior...And she provides a powerful example of faith and trust in God.  We praise God for moms, and trust that the Lord will speak to our hearts today.

    Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet
    Today we will look at John 13, where Jesus washes His disciples' feet.  Later in our service, we'll come to our Lord's table.  As we take communion we have the opportunity to reflect on mercy, grace, forgiveness, and God's amazing love.  Pray that God will speak into our lives, renew our hearts, and continue to show us how much we are loved.

    Palm Sunday

    Today we celebrate Palm Sunday!  This Sunday commemorates the day when Jesus rode into Jerusalem, ushering in what we know as Holy Week.  As we meet to worship, it's our prayer that the love of God, which enabled Christ to willingly go to His death on a cross, will capture our hearts and minds once again...

    He Intercedes For Us
    Today we will take a look at a prayer Jesus prays just prior to His arrest and crucifixion. In it, He is praying for all of His followers.  In essence, He's praying for us, too!  The prayer is found in John 17.  It's a powerful reminder that the one who is “the resurrection and the life” is also the one who intercedes for us.
