Bones

Have you ever thought about what it would sound like to hear hundreds of thousands of bones rattling around? Or what it must’ve looked like to see those same bones join together as if by an invisible hand, and while you watch flesh and skin wrap around those bones? Sounds like a fantastical scene from Dr. Who or something, right? Pastor Marlan talked about Ezekiel’s vision recorded in Ezekiel 37 and how it relates to our lives today as Jesus followers.

Kindness and Compassion

Most people appreciate it when someone shows them compassion when they goof things up, but it can be difficult to extend the same compassion to others when they make a mess of things. Particularly when what they do adversely affects them. Pastor Marlan’s Sunday message emphasizes the need to treat others with kindness and compassion.

There are some big changes – really big – coming to Joy Christian Center. Our founding pastors, Ruth and Marlan Schoenleben¬† announced their resignation Sunday morning. They put forth the Children/Youth pastors, Pastor Caleb and Pastor Shayna Bialik, as candidates for the ministry team who will take over the reins of JCC. Members will vote on this during the upcoming Annual Business meeting February 25th. Pastor Marlan and Pastor Ruth’s last day will be April 1st, East Sunday of this year.

Are You Listening?

Most all of us who are journeying along The Way want ¬†– and need – to hear from God. The question is, are we listening. Often many of us tend to strike out on our own because we are unable sit still long enough for God to talk to us. Waiting is a difficult thing, but it is necessary if we want to hear what God has to say. Click on the arrow to listen to Sunday’s message by Pastor Marlan about listening to God.
