"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!
 
We invite you to join us for our worship service this Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m.!

"FOOD FOR THOUGHT"

The Sunflower Knows Where the SUN Comes From
and Where It Will RETURN


For as the lightning comes from the East and flashes to the West,
so also will the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:27).




Remember how the wise men found Jesus? Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him (Matthew 2:1-2). And before Jesus left the earth, He told His disciples how to find Him again:  "For as the lightning comes from the East
and flashes to the West, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:27).

In both cases, Jesus wasn't found where the sun sets, but in it's place of rising.

Sadly, in our world today, it seems the sunflower may be more prepared for the return of Jesus than most people. Isaiah said,I am the Lord, the only God. There is no other God except me. I put your clothes on you, but still you don't know me. I am doing this so that everyone will know that I am the only God. From the East to the West, people will know that I am the Lord and that there is no other God. (Isaiah 45:5-6) Easy-to-Read Version

I believe God intended for this clockwork ("from the rising of the sun to its setting") to give us a
vivid picture of how to live prepared.

1. When we rise in the morning, our thoughts should be on the Lord.

2. As the day continues, our thoughts should never wander far from Him.

3. And each night, we should position ourselves again to rise with the "Son" in our hearts
and on our minds.

Another interesting fact about the sunflower is its uniformity. A field of sunflowers is amazing to see. Every single flower is parallel to the others around it.



Read: Matthew 24



Are You Prepared For Jesus Return?

Should your path be obscured with darkness,

I pray that God's grace light up your path.
Should your heart be burdened with fear,
I pray that you reach out for His Hands and let it guide you.
Should your hands feel empty and your struggles pushing you to the ground
I pray that you find His Love and let it fill the void in your soul.

                                                                                                                                                        

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.  Remove all fear and anxiety caused in this world today from me. Help me to share your love with the world.  All this I ask in Your Precious Holy Name.  Amen.



Something to Really Think About

21 Things to Pray For:

Tips for a Better Prayer Life in 2021

Do you ever find yourself struggling to know what to pray for? You want to make prayer part of your daily routine, but you feel like you are repeating yourself. You want to freshen things up.

You are not alone. For many Christians, prayer can sometimes feel dry or stale. Prayer is talking with someone who loves you deeply and knows you intimately, so it might be hard to admit or deal with when the conversation has seemed to dry up. Part of the problem can also be the temptation to see prayer as talking to God rather than talking with Him.

But everyone goes through times when praying feels like walking uphill. So here is a list of things you can pray for when you need a little inspiration. Each item on the list comes with a verse from the Bible to shape your thinking and an example of how you might pray in response.



If you're in a hurry, use this list to jump to a Specific Prayer idea:

  1. Praise God for Who He Is
  2. Thank God for What He Has Done
  3. Pray that You Remember Gods Love and Grace for You
  4. Pray That You Would Love Your Neighbors
  5. Talk to God About Someone in Need
  6. Pray for Someone Who Does Not Yet Know Jesus
  7. Pray That You Would Love Your Enemies
  8. Pray That You Would Give Your Time, Money and Energy
  9. Pray for Your Church or Christian Community
  10. Pray for Your City and Nation
  11. Pray for Civic and National Leaders
  12. Pray for Kindness
  13. Pray for Humility
  14. Pray for Teachability
  15. Pray for The Ability to Forgive
  16. Pray for Obedience
  17. Pray for Your Mind to Be Renewed
  18. Pray for Purity
  19. Pray for Responsibility
  20. Pray for Courage
  21. Pray for Hope




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!
