Making your thoughts known

Share your ideas with The pastor.

Twice a year during our summer and winter program everyone is given a form relating to the program we are discussing. The form also asks if there are any new suggestions or events. Again, if you have a suggestion idea or would like to make a change in the Church and do not want to talk to pastor Dennis, then make out this form and leave it on the pew unsigned. And the pastor will discuss the issue on the form. The Pastor is doing everything possible to assure an open and fair church for everyone, and that includes you.  

Joy to the world

Joy to the world

While living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock, an angel of the Lord appeared to the Sheppard’s by night. Now the angel stood before them, and the glory of the Lord surrounded them.

Then the angel said to them, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

“And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Baby wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying;

“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace,
Toward men!”

Now the child was called
The name given by the angel
Before He was conceived in
The womb

The Birth of Jesus

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was engaged to Joseph, before they lived together, or, had sexual relations together, Mary was with child of the Holy Spirit. 

Now because Joseph, Mary’s future husband was a just man did not want to make her a public example because she was pregnant was thinking of ending the marriage because he had found some uncleanness in her because she was with child. 

Now as Joseph thought about Mary being with child, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take for yourself Mary as your wife, for the child that is within her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.

Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold the virgin shall be wih child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, God with us.  Then Joseph after waking from his dream, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and he took Mary as his wife, and he did not have sexual relations with her until after she gave birth to her first born Son, whom he named Jesus

World News

 The Untied States Government is suppose to work for the American people, however, the Government that now exist in 2016, does everything in secret. They try to

Abolish any Journalist that exposes their schemes. They hide the truth make up stories,
Have no moral scruples, and they lie to the American people they are suppose to serve.
How does this present Government affect future generations? When a Nation abolishes the moral standards of right and wrong which was set in place by our ancestors to rule over our elected officials it opens the door for all types of evil men and woman that will also be encouraged to run for the office of the Presidency.

Jesus’ birth foretold

Now in the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgins name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among woman!” 

But when Mary saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus,


(Please Note): Elizabeth was old, and by human standards unable to give birth to a child.   
“But with God nothing is imposable” (Lk.1:37).
Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” and the angel departed from her. Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with hast, to a city of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, blessed are you among woman, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? “For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy (Lk.1:38-44).


Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord. And Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my savior. For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant ; for behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name. and His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation. He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from the thrones, and exalted the lowly. He has filled the hunger with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty. He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of His mercy, as He spoke to our fathers



He will be great, and will be called the son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He, Jesus, will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.(Lk.1:32-33).

Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I have never had sex with any man? And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren (Lk.1:34-36).
