New Sermon Series

There are 9 weeks from now until the zenith of our Faith-Easter. Jesus said “And this is the way to have eternal life–to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.” (Luke 17.3) But often we feel unsure about how to know Him and unsure about how to make Him known. Learning the 3 major themes of the whole Bible will help us know God and help us make Him known. 

“Teach us to number our days …”

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”‭‭Psalm‬ ‭90:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬ The worst deceit of all is the lie that we have only this life to live. Consider frequently, the foolish things people do who are deceived by thinking they will miss it if they fail to get it here – Then refuse to be one of them. Cheating, exploiting, having to be right, having the last word… Any of the words that could begin…

tonight, Influential Disciple

Hello Church, The Influential Disciple study we are doing has gotten good responses. Tonight is the first of 5 dimensions of Discipleship called: Spiritual Formation. This is where the disciplines of discipleship go from duties to delights. From just being present and thinking of performing the right things to living based on Jesus’s promises. The books for this have arrived and they offer daily devotional reading to give deeper understanding. Turning an audience into an army…  God calls you to…

Worship with us

Hello church, The beautiful ‘ice fog’ didn’t last. This cold weather isn’t forecasted to last. Who’s running the weather?  When it seems that nothing lasts, that nothing is reliable, that no one is in charge… that is the time to remember that God is in charge. He leads his people to victory. Looking forward to Worshipping with you tomorrow, The One who is Lord over all. He is worthy of everything we can give in our praise. Come ready to…

The Influential Disciple

Hello Church,  It’s cold. But I hope you are taking pictures and appreciate the beauty we are experiencing. The ‘ice fog’ is spectacular as it coats the trees and objects! What a world our God has created. Here’s is a description of our growth strategy for this year: “It’s amazing that something as central as discipleship – the entire Bible is all based on a deep personal relationship with God. Yet 2000 years into the start of the Church it…

“The Last Supplement”

Hello CCA, This is the last day of 2018. The weather has been forcing the year out! The roar of the storm and wind got me up early this morning. The power of quakes and storms has keep us watching (and maybe nervous?) Maybe ‘watchful’ is a good thing. Luke 21.36 says, “Keep Watch…” Jesus will return for His Church. We want to be ready for that and help people in our city become ready. Here’s a reminder of yesterday’s…

The Mystery of this Child

Hello Church, Have you begun to see that Christmas is not a holiday it’s a mystery? A mystery revealed. May this Christmas season make you wonder, imagine and revel in uncovering the mystery of Christmas and what it can mean for you. Would you read the following scriptures about this mystery of God that was planned for you, before you ever began to look for God or look at God. God has things for you, you would never imagine in…

The best of Christmas

Christmas at CCA Hello Church Christmas is usually a whirlwind and often we miss it in the crush. Avoid that by planning out what you would like to do, see and accomplish. Don’t settle for only buying presents! Let the season and the reason move you. These will help you: Offering for our Missionaries. This Sunday. $3000 is our target. I love CCA’s generosity. I can’t wait to see it. We will bless 10 Missionary families! Wish-list Gifts for kids-in-need…

Employing and enjoying the therapy of Thanksgiving

Hello CCA Researching and studying Thanksgiving has been rich for me. I am hearing some rumblings it has been rewarding for you. Keep at it. Put Praise into your morning routine. Everything will call you away from Praise!! Everything… the news, out of coffee filters (that really happened ), thinking about the day’s demands, sick child, latest add on your phone, etc. The Enemy does not want you to Praise. Put that chair out the night before. Start with Praise!…

Tomorrow

Hello Church, Are you making plans to research some new things about Christmas this coming month? I hope so. Look into the background of why we celebrate this event. Thanksgiving may be uniquely an American holiday, but Christmas is universal. After praise service tomorrow we are going to decorate the church for the Christmas season. We should celebrate at full volume. Would you free some time to help and get started thinking about the season? We are providing lunch. Tomorrow…

Peace you couldn’t explain if you had to.

Hello CCA, Here’s just a sample of a time of praise and Thanksgiving prayer that might help be a model for you as you sit before God each day. It uses the 2 principles I have shared with you thus far about the Therapy of Thanksgiving. It includes a blessing from me to you: Praise for who God is. God I see that you are all mighty, all wonderful, all creative. You are eternal, you are the Lord of the…

excelling in Thanksgiving

Hello CHURCH, I hope you are finding it helpful and putting into practice what I have been preaching on the therapy of thanksgiving The first message was START WITH PRAISE. Praise is 2 sided: first, thanking God for WHO HE IS, secondly, thanking God for WHAT HE HAS DONE AND WHAT HE WILL DO. They are different but they combine nicely like the ingredients in a cake. Put Praise into your morning routine. The second message had 2 points: Thanksgiving puts God…
