"Imagine A Church"

Imagine a church that welcomes you regardless of your age, your looks, the clothes you wear, the amount of money you have, your past experiences, your stage in life or your stage in the journey of faith.
Imagine a church that is amazed by your God given gifts and talents and is eager to help you use them to make the community and world around you better. 
 
Image a church that could step outside the norm, embracing new technology and ideas, while also staying true to a sound Biblical foundation.
 
Imagine a church that challenges the status quo in its Christian life by studying, praying, practicing, and praising with receptive hunger that grows deeper every day.
 
Image a church that seizes the opportunity to make a positive impact in the community through service and spreading the message of hope of Jesus Christ to others.  
 
Imagine a church where strangers and guests are united as a family and want to nurture one another in their spiritual growth. 
 
Our vision is that your imagination becomes reality as we seek to Exalt God!

"FOOD FOR THOUGHT"

Hungry and Thirsty for Righteousness

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is merciful.
The Lord protects the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me.

Psalm 116:5-6

In the Beatitudes, Jesus told those who hunger and thirst for righteousness that they are the blessed ones. 

To be rightous means to be in good standing with God.  It means we are living in a way that honors God and seeks to bless others. If we are really hungry and thirsty for righteousness, our lives and our actions will reflect that desire.  Unfortunately, our world is filled with injustice.  People who cheat, lie and steal seem to be getting away with it.  As we choose God's ways,
it may look like we're being foolish in the eyes of those who aren't hungry and thirsty for him.  But we can trust in the
goodness and mercy of God to protect us.  We can be assured that God will privde just what we need.




READ:  Psalm 116

God's purpose and plans are often obscure, but never unimportant.

Daily Reading: 2 Chronicles 32-34

                                                                                                                                                         

PRAYER:  Lord God, I come before you praising you and thanking you for your Son, our Savior. 
Open my heart and mind to the understanding of your word. 
Help me to press on in the studying of Your Word.
May my light always shine bright for you.  Strengthen my prayer time, and help me to become a mighty warrior in prayer.
Strengthen my fellowship with other believers. Help me to share your great love with others. Give me a true heart of worship and help me to be obedient to your word and callings on my life. May my love for others be selfless, and my heart never be shut when I see a brother or sister in need or lonely.  Help me to share your love with the world.  All this I ask in Your Precious Holy Name.  Amen.


GUEST SPEAKER

Pastor Mark Cordero & Family from the Philippines
Sponsored by Baptist Missions for Asians

Pastor Cordero and his family recently visited our congregation.  We all were greatly blessed by his five year old son who
recited The 23rd Psalm entirely by heart.  The family also blessed us with the song "Carry the Light." They recently had heard the song on YouTube.  The Lord has greatly blessed his wife with the gift of music, as she played the song without music, having only heard it.  Pastor Mark and his son sang the song with no lyrics.

This extremely gifted family have started a church in the Philippines and two years ago bought property to build a new church, but were unable to take possession of the property due to squatters and gangs .  He and his congregation have been threatened many times, but through the perservance of prayer, they have recently been able to start building on the property.  They currently have a wall of protection built around the perimeter of the property and are here in the United States trying to get sponsors to help with the funding to be able to build a permanent church structure.

If you would like to make a donation to support his ministry see Lori Rosneck for further information.

Something to Really Think About

"The Lords Prayer"

The Lord is my Shepherd
(That is Relationship!)

I shall not want.
(That is Supply!)

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
(That is Rest!)

He leadeth me beside the still waters
(That is Refreshment!)

He restoreth my soul
(That is Healing!)

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
(That is Guidance!)

For His name's sake
(That is Purpose!)

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
(That is testing!)

I will fear no evil
(That is Protection!)

For Thou art with me
(That is Faithfulness!)

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
(That is Discipline!)

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies
(That is Hope!)

Thou annointest my head with oil
(That is Consecration!)

My cup runneth over
(That is Abundance!)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
(That is Blessing!)

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
(That is Security!)

Forever.
(That is Eternity!)



(Thanks for Lori Rosneck who recentely put this in our monthly news letter!)

Three Approaches to Reading the Bible

There are many ways to read the Bible, but these three methods work and they will bear fruit.  If you are not reading God's Word daily right now, that can change by using one of these simple plans or approaches.  Depending on your daily schedule, you can pick a way to read the Bible that works best for you.  Enjoy your reading!

(1) PICK A BOOK
Other than reading the Bible straight through from Genesis to Revelation, choosing a book of the Bible is the easiest
way to begin.  But you can choose the books you read based on length or based on subject matter.

BOOKS BY LENGTH:
The greastest sense of accomplishment will come by starting with short books rather than long ones.  Obadiah, Philemon,
and Jude each have one chapter; Ruth, several of the Minor Prophets, and some of Paul's epistles have fewer than
five chapters, and so on.  It is better to start small and be encouraged by your accomplishment than to start big (like with
Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Jeremiah, or Revelation) and grow discouraged.  An advantage of this approach is that it requires no other study aids.  The Bible is all you need.

BOOKS BY SUBJECT MATTER:
The Bible contains five broad categoreis of subject matter that could be chosen based on personal interest or perference:

HISTORY:  Genesis - Esther plus Acts (Written in narrative, historical style)

WISDOM/POETRY:  Job - Song of Songs (Full of poetic imagery)

PROPHETIC/APOCALYPTIC:  Isaiah - Malachi plus Revelation (The most challenging subject matter)

GOSPELS Matthew - John (Mark is shortest; John is thematic rather than biographical)

EPIESTLES:  Romans - Jude (practical theology and instruction for the Christian life)

(2) PICK A TOPIC
There is no shortage of topics one could choose to read about in the Bible.  The two broadest being a subject or a person(s):

SUBJECTS:  Read about love, war, sex, discipline, creation, wisdom, judgment, money, angels, marriage, children, anger, and the list goes on.  Pick a subject that interests you, or about which you have quetions, and pursue it in an open-ended fashion.  Or, purpose to study a subject-a-month for a year.  Reading just 15 minutes a day for 30 days equals 7.5 hours -
a mini-course in a topic related to your life.

PEOPLE:  Read about Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus' disciples (by name or as a group), Paul, Peter, John Barnabas, one of several Marys -- and more.

For a subject or character study, you will need some sort of topical study guide or a Bible concordance (either or both are found in many of today's study Bibles).  A topical study guide will group relevant passages together for you; a concordance will list every verse in which "love/loves" or "Abraham" is mentioned.  Then, it is simply a matter of reading through all of the relevant verses.

(3) PICK A PURPOSE
This approach allows you to embrace the purpose for which certain parts of the Bible were written.  For instance . . .

PSALMS - staying focused on (worshipping) God in the midst of life's trials.

PROVERBS - gaining wisdom needed to live a skillful godly life.

SONG OF SONGS - exploring the depths of marital love and romance.

ECCLESIASTES - understanding why the world can't satisfy man's deepest longings.

DANIEL - Examining evidence that God rules the world and the affairs of kings.

MATTHEW - proving to a Jewish audience that Jesus was the Messiah.

JOHN - demonstrating that Jesus was the divine Son of God.

ACTS - relating a record of the supernatural explosion of the early Church.

1 CORINTHIANS - answering a variety of questions about Christian living.

REVELATION - outlining God's victorious plan for the end of the present age.

Each of the above three approaches works well when you designate a specific amount of time to study every day.
Begin reading, mark your place at the end of the allotted time and continue reading the next day.

Make time for GOD's Word!
