Families & Children

— HEART TO HEART—   Matthew 19:14 tells us that Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them.” (ESV) Jesus also said in Matthew 18:6 “ but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” We here at Life in Christ are striving to have increasingly effective children’s ministries. Our volunteers all are required to have background checks and are conscientious workers. Now, each Sunday a qualified person will be in the Nursery for both the Sunday School hour and morning worship time.  The safety policy we follow is posted in the Nursery. Spread the good news! We want to help young parents get the most out of our services as possible . We love children and love the opportunity to partner with parents in their child’s discipleship. Pastor Allen

Focus On The Lord

— HEART TO HEART—   Proverbs 29:25 states “The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts the Lord shall be safe.” And Galatians 1:10 says, “For if I still pleased men, I would not be the bond servant of Christ.” If we would be honest, the fear of man keeps us back from many things. This morning we are dedicating our service to prayer and worship. Please don’t be intimidated by others as you reach out to the Lord. Let’s just focus on the Lord and what He thinks and the direction that He will lead us and not be concerned about what our family members or others may think. Right now, you only have to answer to the Lord. Don’t let the fear of man keep you from the blessing that the Lord wants to give you today.    Pastor Allen

What Do You Need?

— HEART TO HEART—   What do you need today?   “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6) That’s quite a promise. Jesus said in Matthew 6:33—”Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” In that place, Jesus was speaking about material things, like food, clothing, etc. God knows what you need. He has promised to meet your needs; emotional, physical, and spiritual. If you have a need today (and who doesn’t), you can be assured that our Lord wants to meet your need. I challenge you to believe Him today. You are precious and valuable to Him. He is your Father, He will certainly take care of His own. This service is for you and Him. Receive from Him today.   Pastor Allen
