Ground that has not been worked in awhile becomes hard and has to be ploughed up before it can properly absorb moisture and be useful for growing crops. We need to allow God to break up the hardened ground of our hearts so that we can receive what God wants to pour out into us. Pastor Shayna continued the series on fasting and prayer Sunday morning this a message about fasting for breakthrough in our lives. Click on the arrow below to listen.

We will be having a farewell lunch for Pastor Marlan and Pastor Ruth Sunday, March 25th following the morning service. More details will follow. There is no weekly sermon this week; it did not record properly; we apologize. You can, however, read this month’s newsletter on the Publications page.
I think pretty much everyone I know has that one closet or drawer that no one, and I mean no one, ventures into, right? All the junk collects in those dark hidey holes and we feel like we would curl up and die if anyone saw into the depths of those places. And if we are honest, we have some of those hiding places in our hearts. King David in the Bible was referred to as “a man after God’s own heart”, yet even he had some dark places that hid some truly dreadful things. The book of Psalms records one of the most dangerous prayers that anyone can pray penned by David. He knew he had bad stuff in his heart that needed to go, so he prayed that God would search his heart. Scary though it might be, if we want to go further in God we, like David, must utter that prayer as well. Pastor Caleb talked about this dangerous kind of praying and the results of praying this prayer in Sunday’s message. Click on the arrow to listen to Sunday’s message.
Join us for a fun evening celebrating God’s love at 5:30 PM tonight at 4335 Laurel Street!

Imagine you were watching your favorite news broadcast when one of those “Breaking News” banners scrolled along the bottom announcing “90 year old woman gives birth to healthy baby boy fathered by 100 year old man”. You would more than likely roll your eyes and be more than a little skeptical. That sounds more like an article in one of those sensationalist magazines that line the checkout counters than something that might actually have happened. But wait! If you know your Bible you know that that is exactly what happened to Sarah and Abraham. In the well known Genesis account of Issac’s birth we read the impossible coming to pass just as God said that it would. Jesus told His disciples – and us – that what is impossible for man is possible with God (Matthew 19:20, Mark 10:27, Luke 18:27). Click on the arrow below to listen to Pastor Marlan’s Sunday message about listening to God and doing the impossible.

C.S. Lewis once said “Everyone says that forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have something to forgive” Have there ever been times that you just have not wanted to forgive someone for something that they did to hurt you? If you’re finding yourself struggling in your Christian walk, victory can be attained through the act of forgiveness.
