ONLINE CHURCH for the time being

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have suspended all physical contact meetings for the time being.

We will post a weekly “church service” online (on our webpage) that you can follow to have church at home.  Like Paul says in Colossians 2:5, we are absent from each other in body, but we will be “present in the Spirit”.

We do not know what the future holds, but we know Who holds the future.

1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! Today I’m including another sermon that really meant a lot to me in my walk with the LORD.

Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.

Psalm 30:4–6 (ESV)
Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment, and his favour is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.”

Amen

1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! My prayer for all of us is that God will enable us to have endurance to stand in faith and obedience in these difficult times. These times are also a test for us as we have to obey the government’s rules (like not socializing yet). Remember Luke 16:10 “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” Are you proving yourself faithful to these (easier) restrictions on your life? 

Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.

Psalm 30:4–6 (ESV)
30:4 Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name.
30:5 For his anger is but for a moment, and his favour is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
30:6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.”

Amen
