COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).
****************************************************************

WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • When a child is reached for Christ, 3.5% of the family will follow.
  • When a mother is reached for Christ, 17% of her family will follow.
  • When a father is reached for Christ, 93% of his family will follow.  (Per the Heritage Foundation)
  • THE LORD S CALLING FAITHFUL MEN TO LEAD THEIR FAMILIES!

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

Pray for: Lynn, Fred & Sandy Wilcox's daughter.

Pray & Praise for 14 year old Hope:  Thank you for your prayers for Hope!!  God is answering!  Last week Hope we received the following praises!  She is doing GREAT with her walking!  What a THRILL to watch her!  She is working hard and is VERY motivated!  She is starting some pool therapy this week to help loosen and strengthen her ankles, feet, and overall range of motion.  She is able to go up and down stairs now.  She is making great progress and loves being back with all her friends at school.  She is doing well academically, also.  Her parents are so thankful for all those who are helping to make this possible!  Their hearts are overflowing with thankfulness to the Lord for the great work that He is doing in her life!

Pray for: The many in and around Valley Farms who do not know the Lord as their Lord and Savior,

Pray for: Our son Eric, The medical tests have turned up nothing, and his condition has not changed He is going to contact another doctor to see what he can find out.

Pray for: The many in our families and in our community who are caught up in the cult of MormonismPray their eyes would be opened to the truth of the True Christ. That Christians would see the area in and around Valley Farms as a wide open MISSION FIELD.

PRAY: The Church would not give in to the pressure from the world for Spiritual Correctness, (that is, not confronting the make-believer who claims to be believers), yet they continue in their disobedience, as if the Lord has given them a License to Sin! HE HAS NOT! (1 John 2:19). Pray that the Church would be Strong,  yet compassionate in their confrontation.

Pray for: Carol Adams who is going through some trying times!

Pray for:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT,  THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!  

Pray that: All who are attending the Community Christian Church, as well as all who have ever attended- The Lord Jesus knows who you are, and He knows your needs. We pray that He will meet your every need. If your need is Salvation, and you have not yet accepted the Lord's invitation to join His family of believers by being born again, I pray that today will be the day you make that decision..

Pray that: All who know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start to live as if they do, and  will be willing to pay the one debt we owe for our Salvation; that is the debt of LOVE (Romans 13:8)! 

Pray: That all men who are called into the pastorate would know the need to study to gain advanced Training into a deeper and broader  understanding of the HolBible (2 Timothy 2:15)

Pray for: Pastor Bill as he teaches God's Word (1 Timothy 2:2). Also that the congregation would encourage him, and continue to love and encourage one another ( John 13:34).

    Greetings on this Resurrection Sunday! 16 April 2017

    What a blessing it is to know that we serve a risen Savior! Last Sunday we observed the Lord's Table and reflected on the great sacrifice He made. Today we celebrate His victory over death and that He lives! What a special time for us as believers!

    We still have a lot of Winter left I'm afraid. But Spring is in my heart as I think of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus, what a sad but wonderful day. As I was watching the Sun rise over the big mountain behind my house- I thought of that day 2000 years ago. Love the message Pastor Bill.

  10. Hello PB
    Just finished listening to your message (still working out this school schedule...it is a time consumer).

    I too was so very thankful to take the time on Resurrection Sunday to Worship Our Lord! Great Word PB, encouraged to the max and I appreciate how you showed us the source of our problems... the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience. I have come to learn that Grace that saved us is the 'power of God' A power we received as in Acts 1:8.

    Your encouraged word of 'we have a resurrection in our future' Thank You Jesus
    I too believe that Resurrection day is the day of opportunity to receive our Lord.
    Have a Beautiful Weekend my friend.

  11. Hey Bill and Kathy,

    Thank you for thinking of me on my birthday. The birthday card was really nice.

    Hope all is well with you guys. All is well here. Chris and Tori are busy busy busy. Eric and I are doing well. Eric is still trying to get some answers to his health concerns, I am sure you are aware of all that. I am sure he is keeping you posted. Hopefully they will give him some answers soon and some relief.
