Let us pray
Father, We seek your presence that we may be made aware of power beyond ourselves. Forgive us when we forget that your ability is always available to us as we struggle in our daily walk with thee. We seek your presence,
Father, because we need a strong shield against temptation, we are tempted daily by the devices of the world. Keep us we pray from compromising your truths or engaging in activity’s that are displeasing to you. We need your presence that we may find
the ability and desire to be taught what is Godlike and right. We need your presence so that we might understand what is holy and sacred and eternal.
Father, we need your presence so that we might have a love for
your word with all its power and insight and guidance. We need your presence so that we may be examples of Godlikeness as we walk in the community, and as we show loyalty to your kingdom, and serve you in all humility among our fellow human beings, and as
we show care for your creation. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus, Amen.
May God bless your special day!

Hey I smell Hamburgers
Looking back at the last three picnic turn-outs, it looks
Like the picnic has lost its luster amongst the church members, therefore the church picnic will not be held this year as a result of lack of interest.
As the coronavirus continues to wind down with fewer reported cases, the church will once again begin planning its church trips for 2022
Just as God needs our help in spreading the gospel,
Likewise, we need your help; in finding a safe and fun amusement park where both adults and children can enjoy the day together as the family
of God. The church committee will consider the suggestion of everyone during meetings.

Why we need a Savior
everyone needs to
Accept Jesus as Savior.
Regardless if someone had committed a sin or not everyone needs to accept Jesus as their
savior, why? Because of inherited sin.
Adam’s sin affected everyone in two ways,
(1) Adam’s sin passed to everyone even if they committed no sin (Rom.5:12-14).
Also, the wages of sin is death so, (2) Because of Adam’s sin death passed to everyone (Rom.5:12).
When Adam sinned, the Bible says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. And since the wages of
sin is death, therefore, death passed to everyone, even to those who have not yet been born (1-Cor.15:22).
So then, who can be saved, asked the multitudes
In (1-Jn.2:1-2) John said, if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And in (John 14:6) Jesus said, know one comes to the Father except through Me. So, even though all have sinned and in their minds became an enemy of
God, there is a way back to the Father.
The Philippians jailer asked, what must I do to be saved? The apostle Paul said, if you confess with Your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised
Jesus from the dead you will be saved (Rom.10:9).
The Lord can heal you, perform miracles, part the red sea, Create the world, but God can not believe for you, Believing in Jesus is something you have to do for yourself,
but, you can pray and ask the Lord to help you believe.
Our heavenly Father
Whenever I think of fathers Day, it reminds me of John F. Kennedy when he was the President of the United States of America from 1961-1963. President Kennedy was also a father of two, Caroline, his daughter, and
John Jr., his son. What I remember most about the Kennedy family is the video clip the media shared on live TV with the American public.
Mrs. Kennedy was being interviewed with her two children by the media in another
area of the White House. The president was in the Oval Office presiding over an important meeting with dignitaries, politicians, and members of Mr. Kennedy’s cabinet. What happened next shocked the media, the secret service, and the American public,
who had been witnessing this event unfold on their TV screens.
Suddenly The cameras focused on a small figure, and then another, running down the hallway where the President was conducting a meeting. The two figures
running toward the Presidents door was Caroline, followed by her little brother. As the children reached the secret service detail, you are not going to believe what happened next!
As quickly as possible and without
speaking a word, these armed men began making a pathway for the Kennedy children. Through the doorway, the children ran as they leaped into their Fathers Lap, and all those attending the meeting that morning could only watch in amazement at what they had just
witnessed. Our Heavenly Father is like this no matter what is happing in the world; God's ear is always attentive to the cries of His children. Please read (1-Peter 3:12).
A FATHERS DESIRE
I remember when I was sixteen, my Dad, his name was Richard, sat me in a chair so he could talk to me. Pardon! No silly, not that talk about the birds and the bees, listen, do you want to tell the story or do you want
My dad sat opposite me, looked me in the eyes, and said, son, we may not be rich or famous. We may not live in a mansion or palace, but we possess one valuable thing, the family name. Then my dad went on
to say, please, son, never tarnishes the name of Johnson by your words or deeds.
And like my Dad, God does not want His children to tarnish the Christian name as well. And therefore, the apostle Paul warns Christian
everywhere to put off their former conduct. Therefore, stop lying. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking put it away from you so that we do not blaspheme the name of the Lord (James 2-7).
If our earthly fathers want their kids to imitate them, how much more, will our Heavenly Father desire for His children to imitate Him, The apostle Paul said, imitate me, just as I imitate Christ (Read 1-Cor.11:1).
As a follower of Christ, we should walk just as Christ walked while He was present on the earth (1-Jn.2:6).
God has three desires for His children
1) That we know Him-
2) That we be conformed to Christ image.
3) That we walk in love
GIFTS OF A FATHER
Jacob demonstrates his love toward Joseph.
Joseph’s father loved him, although his brothers described him as a dreamer. Jacob, to demonstrate his love for his son Joseph
made him a coat of many colors. God, like Joseph, sent His Son Jesus into the world to demonstrate His love for His children as well (Rom.5:8).
God’s gift to the world.
Jesus said to Nicodemus, a Pharisees and a ruler of the Jews (Jn.3:1). For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life (Jn.3:16).
John, when he saw Jesus coming toward him, he said, behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (Jn.1 29).
God’s gift of eternal life.
first gift God makes available to anyone who willingly accepts it by faith, believing in their heart, that God raised Jesus from the dead will receive the gift of eternal life (Rom.10:9). Paul, the apostle writes, For by grace you have been saved and that
not of yourself; it is the gift of God (Eph.2:8). Can you imagine living in a paradise for eternity? A world where there will be no more tears nor death, nor sorrow, nor crying (Rev.21:1-4).
God’s gift of
the Holy Spirit.
The second gift God gives those who believe in Jesus for salvation is the gift of the Holy Spirit. God never meant for His children to navigate through this evil and fallen world alone. Why? Because
our adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (1-Peter 5;8). therefore, God gives us His Spirit, the Holy Spirit that dwells within every believer (2-Cor1:22).
God gives us
a heavenly family.
At repentance, believers are delivered from the family of darkness and into the Lord’s family. For as many are led by the spirit of God, theses are sons and daughters of God. God’s
spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, and if children, then heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ
