BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

WELCOME TO VALLEY FARMS COMMUNITY CHURCH


ALL ARE WELCOME!

Understanding there will be limitations of social interaction, with a separation of a minimum of six feet for non-family members.  The leadership of the Community Christian Church is in agreement as we open services up to the community, limiting the gathering of each church activity to 10 or fewer people, for the health and safety of all concerned.  You are invited to attend.
Online services will continue to be available at communitychristianchurch.sermon.net
You are welcome to contact me anytime at 520-723-2952 (Leave a message.) e-mail pastorbill@westriv.com.  Or drop a note in the Drop Box on the front door.  May we never neglect to pray for one another.

IS THERE A BIBLICAL PRESCRIPTION TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? YES! ONE, AND ONLY ONE. IT'S FOUND IN 2nd CHRONICLES 7:14; "IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND." 

THE ANSWER IS: TURN BACK TO THE LORD GOD-TO FAITH-FAMILY!  



**********************************

TO BE CHRISTIANS, WE MUST CONFESS AND AGREE WITH GOD THAT SIN IS SIN! KNOWING THAT GOD HATES SIN! THE SINNER MUST CONFESS, REPENT AND TURN FROM THEIR SINS, TURN TO JESUS AS LORD AND BE SAVED!

WE ARE!

CHRIST CENTERED

                                                   FAMILY FOCUSED

                                                                                                    LIFE CHANGING

Remember: As Christians, we have a New Nature that is Constrained by the Truth of Scripture!

Knowing that; Truth is always Truth, from Eternity past, through Eternity Future.

SO REMEMBER! If it's True, it's NOT NEW- If it's New it's NOT TRUE!

    BREAKFAST AT THE CHURCH - FEBRUARY 16th





    Sunday Lunch at Church







    ************************
    The Saga of a Local Church
    And Four of Its Members:
    Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, & Nobody

    Each time there was a job to be done
    Everybody was asked to do it.

    Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

    Somebody got angry about that,
    Because it was Everybody’s job.

    Everybody thought Anybody could do it,
    But Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

    Consequently, it wound up that Nobody told Anybody,
    So, Everybody blamed Somebody.

    ********************
    ****

    SALVATION: Not only to Eternity in Heaven, but from Eternity in Hell! You MUST, first of all: Humble yourself and Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of a Savior:

    James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles on one (point), he has become guilty of all.”


    Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

    Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

    Accept God’s Love through the/Sacrifice in His Son Jesus
    •Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

    Turn to God in Repentance
    •Acts 20:21 “I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.”

    Trust the Fullness Jesus Christ!
    •Romans 10:9 “…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as  Lord,  and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;

    Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.”

    Romans 10:14 “How then shall they call on Him Who they have not believed?  And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard?  And how shall they hear without a preacher?

    Romans 10:17 “So then Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

    Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me (God) and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

    It may not be easy to give up your old sinful ways, and turn in faith to Jesus Christ; but it is the only way to  SALVATION,  AND IT IS WORTH IT! 

     CALL UPON (THE FULLNESS OF) THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!

      Happy Father's Day! Thank you for giving us a strong foundation to build a good life. Thanks for being there for us always! We love you and are so blessed to have you in our lives!


      God Bless you today and always!

    2. Good morning and a happy Father's Day as well. Fathers day doesn't seem to get too much recognition other than the sales they offer.

      Hopefully the fires subsided a bit out west. Hopefully the smoke isn't overbearing out there.

      Tracy and I were driving home from Tori's yesterday and saw how peaceful everything was. We saw people having parties in their backyard and never would have guessed the country was in disarray.

      It gave me the peace of mind that there is civility, at least in Bloomfield.

      I am not going cold turkey on the news but definitely limiting how much I watch. It's destroying all of us. Too many opinions. People that speak big words are the smart ones on TV but the dumb ones in the neighborhoods are causing problems. I prefer simple talk and simple times which Global media destroys. Maybe? Maybe not? time will tell I guess

      Happy Fathers day

      Love
      Eric

    8. I look forward to some time to talk with you Sunday as we often do, as well as to the message God has given you for us, and the time in worship, music and prayer. I know I need it!
