From the Pastor’s Heart – June 19, 2020

Fellow Slaves of Christ, The last few weeks we have been reminded through the Scriptures of how to respond rightly in a world gone wrong. One of the blessings we have seen in our study is how God has graciously given under shepherds to lead, guide, and guard His people especially during times of suffering, chaos, and peril (1 Pet 5:1-4). I want you to know how thankful I am for our elders and for the faithfulness they have displayed in leading us through this most difficult time in church history (1 Thess 5:12-13). These men have been proactively leading us...

Do You Know The Greatest Danger Now Facing BBC?

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I pray this letter finds you walking in the joy of the Lord with a heart full of gratitude for all the goodness our great God has lavished on us in Christ (Rom 5:1-11). Never forget and never get over (2 Cor 5:14-15) the incalculable riches enjoyed by all believers through the eternal gospel of God (Eph 1:3-4)! Like you, I am eagerly anticipating a time when we can all publicly regather for corporate worship as we are commanded by God and as we desperately need (Heb 10:23-25). Each week, we inch closer as a community...

I praise the Lord for the many wonderful lessons about the goodness and greatness of our God that we can and must learn through this time of uncertainty. I have personally thanked the Lord for how much the coronavirus...

A Special Message from Pastor Matt

Fellow Servants of Christ, I pray this communication finds you rejoicing in the ever-present sovereign grace of God (Ps 115:3)! How encouraging and comforting to know that, no matter what happens in life, we can rest assured that all things, good and bad, have been sifted through the hands of our all-loving Lord (Eph 1:11). I pray these days help us all to grow in the peace and rest of our perfectly providential God (Isa 46:8-10)! Stop and let that truth set in, that nothing in this world happens by accident and God has never been, nor will He ever...

Proverbs 2: 2020 Bible Challenge

Devotional Text and Meditation for the Day Pastor Matt Proverbs 2:9 “Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path;”  Yesterday, we considered the priority of listening to and thus living by sound instruction. Today’s meditation verse helps us contemplate further the deep necessity for listening well by provoking our thoughts with the constructive, invaluable, and life impacting benefit of personally heeding the truth that is taught to us. In Proverbs chapter two, Solomon is extolling the grand significance of humbly receiving sound instruction and words of wisdom. Of course, the wisdom and understanding (2:2) Solomon refers...
