I, hope you all are having a great summer! I know that sometime we forget that the church still needs us doing this time. But let’s think about it this way! What if you were the only one that had the keys to the church, would we have church this Sunday? I read a number of articles this last week and it got me to thinking. Let me share a little with you! One was by Richard Land who is the president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. He was sharing from the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life, February 2010. This was the question, “How important would you say religion is in your life?” The response was as follows, Greatest {- 1928} 75% - Silent {1928-1945} 67% - Boomer {1946-1964} 60% - Gen X {1965- 1980} 52% - Millenial {1981 -} 40%. As I read this I begin to think, just how long will it be till Religion is out of our Life? That began to make me think about all our children that will be going to hell!! because we are too tried up with other thing to get ourselves and the kids to church. Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me” I would ask you to remember what God said in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” This tells me it’s not too late for us. I, would ask that you use your key to the church and keep it open for the kids and the rest of us. Looking forward to seeing you in church the next time we open the doors. Till next time, may God bless and keep you safe.

Pastor Jim

P.S., I, would like to invite you to V.B.S. on the 2nd to 6th of Aug. see information on this letter.

Hello to All,

It's that time of the year, to remember the greatest gift of all times. April the 4th, will be Easter and that means a lot to me. If it were not for the Love Jesus showed on Good Friday and if He had not gone to hell for me, I would still be living in fear of death and have no hope at all. But, because Jesus loved me so much and rose from the tomb on the third day as He promised, I too can have that everlasting Life and know that I can look forward to that mansion, Jesus has prepared for me.

Jesus, said I could have this everlasting life, this mansion with Him on one condition: I must believe that Jesus gave His life for me, because I was a sinner and He paid the price for my sins. We are told in

Roma 3:23 (NIV) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, “this means you and I” we are also in Roma 6:23 (NIV) For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. And in Roma 5:8 (NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! 10 For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

I thank God that He gave His Son for you and me. I also thank God that He pointed out in

Ephe 2:8 (NIV) For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. I can do but one thing to receive this everlasting Life, and that accept it as a gift from God.

My hope is that you would come to Jesus and accept this give from Him and enjoy this Easter like never before in your life. Remember what it say’s in 2Cor 6:2 (NIV) For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. Please come and give your life to Jesus Christ today.

Our service will be at 11:00a.m. on the 4th of April, hope to see you there.

In Christ Jesus our Lord:

Pastor Jim McGuire
