Thirst for Living Water

August 27th, 2017

Today, we are battenin’ down the hatches as Hurricane Harvey is disbanding. Despite all the rain we are thirsty, thirsty for living water.

Acolyte Recognition

August 20th, 2017

Today, we recognized the hard work that are Acolytes put in to our worship experience. Thank you to the Acolytes for all of your hard work, and thanks to their parents for their support!

We also continued the sermon series Holy Heat with the newest sermon, “Shadach, Meshach, and Abednego…Who Named These Kids??”. We learned that we are under constant assault to compromise our worship. We are made to be worshippers of the most high God, not of false idols. We must be vigilant in giving our hearts to God everyday.

Blessing of the Backpacks

August 13th, 2017

Today, we had our Blessing of the Backpacks! We prayed for all the students, teachers, and faculty in our community to receive God’s blessing over the new school year. We are so excited to see what God has in store for our schools this year!

We also continued the sermon series Holy Heat with the newest sermon, “Who Is Responsible For This Fire?”. As we pray like Elijah, we are confident that God will send down fire to the altar of our hearts.

Let’s Go to the Pool

August 6th, 2017

Today, we heard the next installment of the Holy Heat series, “Let’s Go to the Pool”. This scripture passage from John was full of powerful and convicting truths. One of which was the startling question Jesus asked the lame man, “Do you want to be healed?”.

Next Sunday we will have our Blessing of the Backpacks! So bring your backpacks, lunch boxes, student/team roster, instrument, sports equipment, or anything else, and place it on the altar so that our church can pray for God’s blessing on this upcoming school year!

Tragedy, Comedy, Fairy Tale

July 30th, 2017

Today, we were blessed to have Rev. Dr. Doug Ezell in our pulpit. We learned that we tend to figuratively cut ourselves and it leaves us searching for grace, hope, and joy. However, all of these and more are found only through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, who sacrificed himself out of love.

Doug Ezell, and his wife Patty, are a great blessing to our church and the surrounding community.

Celebration of Ministry – Doug Young

July 23th, 2017

Today, we celebrated 20 years of ministry with our Youth Director, Doug Young. Over the years, Doug has touched the lives of countless people. He has led our youth, organized trips, invested his time, and loved our youth well. We are blessed to have Doug and his family as an integral part of our church. Thank you, Doug and Aimee, for your service to God and the church.

Today, we continued our sermon series “Holy Heat” with the third installment, “We’re Dying of Thirst”. Just as the Israelites blamed Moses for their thirst while in the desert, we tend to blame others for our problems instead of taking responsibility for our own faults. Rather than focusing on the problems and failures of the past, we should look with purpose towards all that God has promised.

Gimme That Old Time Religion

July 16th, 2017

Today, during our 9 A.M. Traditional Worship Service, Bill Rose, accompanied by the Chancel Bells, Choir, and musicians, led our congregation in a Great Day of Singing. Centering on nostalgic hymns and melodies, the celebration included such titles as, “I’ll Fly Away”, “Down by the Riverside”, and “Gimme That Old Time Religion”.

We also continued our sermon series “Holy Heat” with the second installment, “Son-Shine”. Just as the sun in our solar system is perfect, powerful, and purposeful, so is the Son of God, our Savior, Jesus Christ. As we endure this summer heat, we should be reminded that the SON is even more powerful than the SUN, and that power is available to each of us.

Fellowship of Burning Hearts

July 9th, 2017

Today we started a new sermon series, “Holy Heat”. To kick things off, today’s sermon centered on the burning bush from Exodus 3:1-12. Just as God called Moses, He is calling each of us to live passionately, with hearts that burn for the cause of Christ. We were also blessed by Bill Rose on the Alphorn, accompanied by Annette Larsen on the Organ, during our time of Tithes and Offerings.

One Last Time

June 25th, 2017

Today we said farewell to our Associate Pastor, Rev. Hannah Henderson. We are so thankful for the time, love, and wisdom that she has poured out on our church over the last year. Rev. Hannah is a beautiful example of grace and humility, and as she moves on to her next appointment, we know she will continue to be a blessing to the church universal. Until next time, we will hold her words close and remember we are only guaranteed today, so we will live boldly, humbly, fearlessly, and full of faith.

Father’s Day

June 18th, 2017

Today we celebrated our Fathers, both earthly and heavenly. During our Children’s Time, we learned that fathers are forgiving, attentive, teachers, helpful, energetic, and ready. We lit two candles in honor of the fathers who have gone on to be with the Lord, as well as the families that may be struggling on this Father’s Day. Today, we are especially thankful for the fathers, and father figures, who have shaped us, supported us, and led us to where we are today.

Celebration of Missions

June 11th, 2017

Today we celebrated our Missions by hearing from our LSU Campus Missionary, Katie Price, and our Missions Leader, Ken Findley.

Hear the testimony from our LSU Campus Missionary, Katie Price.
