We have a cross mix of ages & ethnic groups from infants to seniors and everything in between. There is a nursery for the entire service, and a kids ministry (JK – Gr 6) that runs the last half of the morning service, hopefully giving you the peace of mind to enjoy the festivities.

This past Sunday I took a poll to see how did people come to faith in Jesus, only 3 hands went up for finding Jesus on TV or the radio, but the rest of the congregations hands went up due to a family member or friend.
The biggest reason people come to Jesus is because of personal contact and conversation, that doesn’t mean the other ways don’t work, but the most effective way is one on one conversation and relationships. Its why Jesus wants disciples to make disciples.
Hearts That Love Part 9 | Sharing is Caring
For those who first become believers it is rather easy and less awkward to share ones faith, they are excited and enjoying the change that Jesus has brought them, for others the older we get we may tend to be less bold in sharing our faith with others. Jesus reveals his passion for lost folks and his compassion for the lost is and should be infectious to us. Jesus will tell a parable to try and shake up those who opposed him to reconsider their view of him and the good news He was trying to bring to them and the rest of the world.
Today’s message reflected on a video of a true story of a family needing to bring in a harvest of wheat, and then turning it back to look at what do we need to do to be apart of the spiritual harvest in our world today.
Most people struggle with folks who are excessively cocky, they talk big and have high expectations. But there is nothing worse when folks predict this or that and then they fail to come through on their word – disappointing to say the least. But when Jesus was dying on the cross he was being mocked and ridiculed, the whole time the accusers wanted to see Jesus save himself, not realizing that Jesus was dying for them in order to save them and not himself. So when Jesus died, it was not a whimper but a roar of triumph.
Last words spoken can be very meaningful and or very sad. Those on their death beds have made some profound statements, like rejecting atheism and turning to a faith in God, some go very angry into their graves. But what does Jesus say as he is being tortured by humanity, it may surprise you and it may in fact bring us hope and comfort in our own walk through life.
