The Bible story about the prodigal son reveals a side of God’s character that most people don’t know about – His love. The Father’s love does not depend on how good you are or what you do. Also, the Father’s love for all of us never changes! Listen and be blessed!
September 2, 2018 Morning Worship Service and Observance of The Lord’s Supper | Pastor Carl McCray
Special music: Jerry Shepherd singing “Wonderful Merciful Savior”
Message: Being Together is Better
As we observe the Lord’s Supper with a spirit of reverence, we celebrate and rejoice together for everything God has done for us. We aught to be overwhelmed with the deepest sense of awe that God would send His Son to pay the penalty of our sins. As a follower of Christ, we are to partake of The Lord’s Supper in the remembrance of the Lord. As we do, we are proclaiming His redemptive death on our behalf.

Message: Pledging Our Allegiance
On July Fourth, we are reminded that our patriots made a bold declaration, paid a high price, and reaped a great reward – freedom. In scripture we are taught to fight the good fight and finish the race, but not everyone is committed or concerned. There’s a high price to pay for following after Jesus. Like our patriots, followers of Jesus will reap a great reward – freedom from the bondage of sin.
Think about that day you made a bold declaration and claimed Jesus as your Savior and Lord. Have you drifted? God is inviting you to repent and renew your commitment. Maybe you have never made that bold declaration. Do you know the gift of God is eternal life (John 3;16)? The good news is Jesus will save you, forgive you, and give you a new life! Make a bold declaration and pledge your allegiance to Jesus.
“… Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8: 31-32 (NIV)
