11/11/2018Pastor Ken Lichter "Called to be Different"
Sunday Matthew 5:1-10
Pastor ken message this morning reminds us that, as God's people who are born again under the blood of Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit, by the Holy Word of Father God, that we are called to be a 'peculiar people', different people than those in the world.( 1 Peter 2:9 KJV) Remember, Jesus said that "His kingdom is not of this world," (John 18:36). Continuing this lesson, Pastor Ken divides Jesus' sermon on the mount (Matt. 5:1-10) into two categories. The first 4 are the "Preparation Phase". "Blessed are... 1. The Poor in spirit. (see isaiah 6:5) 2. Those who Mourn (Matt. 26:38) 3. The Meek. 4. Those who Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness the final four beatitudes are called the "Presentation Phase" 5. the Merciful 1 John 4:19. 6. the Pure in Heart 7. the Peacemakers 8. those who are Persecuted This lesson was presented in part, as an Object Lesson by using an eight foot ladder, where each step was represented by one of the beatitudes, beginning at the bottom, and finishing at the top. May God continue to bless you as you climb the Ladder of Beatitudes, working together with Him in becoming more mature followers of Jesus.

11/25/2018Pastor James Howard "You Are What You Think You Are"
Sunday Philippians 4:8
Our brother, Pastor James Howard, brings a special message to us this morning, The title of today's message comes from Proverbs, chapter 23, verse 7: "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he" ( KJV ). "People don't want someone else to tell us what to think, yet, as Christians, we are supposed to be different from everyone else. We are governed by the Word of God. So we must pray about everything, seeking God's Will, and trust in God to lead us and help us in making our decisions. If we want to be a positive force in helping to change our world, we need to be transformed. James shares from the following scripture: Romans 12:2 New International Version (NIV) " Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." James then shares scripture account of the prodigal son from Luke ch. 15:13-20. Noticing that when he 'came to his senses', then he was able to change his circumstances for the better. James encourages us to 'never give up!" SIDENOTES: Last week, Pastor Ken shared about the Beatitudes, and used an 8 ft. step ladder, depicting the eight beatitudes. That 8 ft. step ladder could have been used again this morning as Pastor James shared from Phil. 4:8 about eight thoughts that we should program our minds to be thinking about! Philippians 4:8 New International Version (NIV) Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. However, we simply cannot stop at thinking about these things, we need to, as the apostle Paul says in the very next verse, that we need to put them into practice. Philippians 4:9 New International Version (NIV) "Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." God' Word must lead us to obedience, like a popular song says, "Trust and obey, for there's no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey." May God bless you abundantly, as you humbly trust in Him, and (through the power of the Holy Spirit) obey Him daily.

10/28/2018Pastor Ken Lichter Five Practical Traits of Unity
Sunday John 17:20-23
Pastor Ken again touches upon the topic of Christian Unity as he springboards from a portion of Jesus' prayer in John chapter 17 into today's very insightful message. Listen carefully and discover how these five practical traits of unity will help you discover a very profound desire of the Godhead. The underlying strength and power of the church in every generation is found in it's desire and single focus to be united, as Jesus prayed in John 17:20-23. The battle has been fought since Jesus said that He " will build His church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it." Satan's greatest tactic has always been to Divide the Church, but he will fail. Every child of God has a personal responsibility to " Keep the Unity of the Spirit through the bond of Peace." (Eph. 4:3) 5 Practical Traits of Unity: 1. ENCOURAGEMENT Matthew 5:21,22; 1 Cor. 1:10-12, 11:18,19; Proverbs 6:16-19; Eph. 4:1-16. 2. LOVE (of Christ) The Agape love of Christ ( John 15:12) 3. FELLOWSHIP OF THE SPIRIT Phil. ch 2; Hebrews 10:25 4. COMPASSION This includes mercy and forgiveness Matt. 18:23-25; Eph. 4:32. 5. HUMILITY "Do nothing out of deceit, vain glory, selfish ambition (Phil. 2:3,4; Ephesians 4:1-3; Make it a point to be an encourager and not a discourager.
