Our Weekly Schedule




SUNDAY 
10:00 AM     Worship & Teaching - Pastor Bob Lawrenz   
                    Message:  Revelation 20:11-15 - "The Day of the Lord"
                
                            Scripture Reading:       Amos 1:6-10

After the final defeat and punishment of Satan, the rest of mankind is resurrected. These are the non-believers, brought back to life in the second resurrection. This brings them to a great white throne, symbolic of purity and justice. Unlike the rainbow throne described in earlier chapters, this one is austere. Those who died in Christ are judged on the basis of His life, rather than their own—those are the persons whose names were written in the book of life (John 3:16–18). In contrast, here at the great white throne judgment, unbelievers are judged on their own deeds, which means damnation (Romans 6:23). Every person who did not follow Christ is consigned to the lake of fire (Revelation 20:11–15).

At this point in Revelation, victory over death and evil is complete. Every harm, every wrong, and every sin has been punished. Every person who followed God has been restored and rescued. Satan is gone forever. All wrongs have been made right. What follows in the next chapters are John's visions of the eternity believers will share with Christ.

TUESDAY
 
10:00 AM     Ladies Prayer & Bible Study - Norine Lawrenz

                                                         
We are beginning a new Bible study this week called, "Living IN JESUS."

We invite you to join us as we study God's Word and draw closer to Him.  

Paul wrote in Colossians 2:6-7, 
"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving."

When you receive Jesus Christ as Lord in your life it is the beginning of life with Christ. We are called to live in Christ, by being rooted and built up in Him. Following Christ’s leadership and example in your life strengthens your faith and thankfulness. Christ guides you and gives your strength for your daily life, which includes helping you with all the circumstances and problems you face.

A life that is being rooted and built up in Christ is a life committed to following God’s Will and Christ’s example, seeking His wisdom and teachings, being obedient to God’s Word, and being conscious of the Holy Spirit in your life and going the way that He calls.

Our life is His, and we are transformed into something new. Jesus is our Savior and Lord, but He has also become our very closest friend.  He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother... inseparable, and precious.   What friend could possibly be closer than Jesus?  He loves us. He died for us. He calls us His own, His beloved.

Our life with Him will continue throughout eternity, and that life is a life of joy.

In Him we have:
  • A joy that can’t be diminished.
  • A hope that can’t be disappointed.
  • Resources that cannot be exhausted. 
Paul taught us, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold, all things become new. " 1 Corinthians 5:17 

Let's walk IN that newness of life!

Come join us for a spiritually uplifting time of worship, prayer, Bible study and fellowship.
                    

As a contemporary of Isaiah and Hosea, Micah prophesied during the momentous years surrounding the tragic fall of Israel to the Assyrian Empire (722 BC), an event he also predicted (Micah 1:6). Micah stated in his introduction to the book that he prophesied during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah in Judah, failing to mention the simultaneous string of dishonorable kings that closed out the northern kingdom of Israel.
During this period, while Israel was imploding from the effects of evil and unfaithful leadership, Judah seemed on a roller-coaster ride—ascending to the heights of its destiny in one generation, only to fall into the doldrums in another. In Judah at this time, good kings and evil kings alternated with each other, a pattern seen in the reigns of Jotham (good, 2 Kings 15:32–34); Ahaz (evil, 2 Kings 16:1–4); and Hezekiah (good, 2 Kings 18:1–7).
