Aside from the happiness we find as we worship, here are some other things that happen:
- We take time to reprioritize God
- We redirect our attention to God from ourselves
- We slow down the pace of life – get out of the fast lane, and soak in His Glory
- We open up to the Holy Spirit for Him to work in or speak to us
- We exchange our turmoil for peace
- We encounter God in one of the most personal aspects of our relationship with Him
- We prepare our own hearts to receive God’s word
- We recharge our faith – His word can be mixed with faith
Join us in worship at 10:00 am this Sunday – and leave refilled with the Spirit!
Spanish Church’s Second Anniversary This Sunday
This Sunday, July 6, marks the second anniversary of Zion Christian Church, Spanish Edition. Two years ago the 6th of July was a Friday, and the first Friday
evening Prayer Meetings began then. The Weekly Friday Prayer Meetings still continue two years later. God has been good to the Spanish Church, and Pastor Frank has guided the Congregation along in a remarkable way. We thank the Lord for His faithfulness. The Congregation is well established, having their own Corporation and leadership that is separate from the English Version. Their worship and ministry is blessed with a rich anointing. We are so grateful to God.

When I was a young boy, our school would allow us to take the afternoon off on Good Friday to sit in Church between noon and three in the afternoon to reverently think about the Crucifixion of Jesus. I still remember sitting quietly in the pew and wondering what it all meant. Now that I know what it
means, I still take time to sit quietly sometimes and think about it. That God became a man and died in our place to save us is breath-taking. The words of a hymn set to the old Irish folk song “Danny Boy” went like this:
I shall forever lift my eyes to Calvary
To view the cross where Jesus died for me
How marvelous the Grace the caught my falling soul
He looked beyond my faults and saw my need.

Have you ever wondered how people grow into responsibility and leadership roles in a local Church? This Sunday’s Message will address some of the principles involved in this process. While the local Church is indeed a group of diverse people working together, we have to know and understand the central truths and focuses of the Ministry, or we pull apart rather than pull together. The Central truths and focuses are the things we strive together to accomplish. This Sunday we will address some of these issues are made practical as we move forward to accomplish the Will and purposes of God together. Check it out on our Audio link if you are not able to be in worship this Sunday.
