Easter Services

Music from the Sonrise Service,

March 27, 2016 at 6:00 AM

Normally we video the entire Sonrise Service, but this year Larry's battery died near the end of the singing portion. Our apologies to Brent Eubank, who was the guest speaker and gave a wonderful message this morning, standing in the cold breeze with a child in his arms.

But you see what happens when you put your trust in the technologies of this world or entrust a man (Larry) to make certain his camera is fully charged; they can let you down. That is what happens all the time in this world. You need to put your trust in Jesus, Savior and God, who never breaks a promise, never lets us down, and can always be trusted.

Importance of Passionate Prayer

by Pastor Randy Scott

March 20, 2016
Palm Sunday

James 5New International Version (NIV)

16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

17 Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. 18 Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.

A note from Larry: These are my life verses. Maybe a bit different from what some have as their's, but these have meaning to me because it was with these I was saved. I was lost and I was down 
and in desperation my wife and I went to this new church nearby. We were not religious nor were we church goers at the time, but we had just lost a seventh child. A sermon was given based on these verses and it felt as if the preachers words were aiming at my life. It was from the basis of this passage that I raised my hand for prayer that Sunday, and on the September 1975 Tuesday following I got down on my knees at home and prayed to Jesus for my forgiveness and my salvation .

You May Need to Remove Your "I"

Luke 18:9-14English Standard Version (ESV)

He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayedthus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

What Would Your Answer Be?

2 Chronicles 1English Standard Version (ESV)

In that night God appeared to Solomon, and said to him, “Ask what I shall give you.” And Solomon said to God, “You have shown great and steadfast love to David my father, and have made me king in his place. Lord God, let your word to David my father be now fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth. 10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can govern this people of yours, which is so great?” 11 God answered Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern my people over whom I have made you king, 12 wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after you shall have the like.” 13 So Solomon came from[b] the high place at Gibeon, from before the tent of meeting, to Jerusalem. And he reigned over Israel.
