National Day of Prayer Gathering at Heritage Park

The National Day of Prayer is coming up this Thursday. It is a time to gather in prayer for our nation and our communities. The theme verse is from Romans 15:6, where we read, "So that with one mind and with one voice, you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."

There will be a National Day of Prayer event in Junction City. Beginning at noon on Thursday will be an hour of prayer at Heritage Park, located at the corner of 6th and Washington (click here for a map). We'll gather near the stage on the south end of the park.

Kent Otott Speaking This Sunday

This Sunday morning, guest speaker Kent Otott will be preaching during both services. Kent is the director of the Kansas/Nebraska chapter of Teens for Christ. He and his wife and children live in Concordia. Our traditional service starts at 8:30, followed by Sunday school at 9:45, and then Kent will be speaking again during our contemporary service at 11:00. For the Sunday evening service at 6:00, Miles McCall will be teaching.

Be in prayer for Pastor Gabriel and his family as they'll be traveling this weekend. Gabe's grandmother passed away last week, and the funeral is in Columbia, SC. They'll be back on Wednesday.

Tonight's Fellowship Meal

This evening for our fellowship meal, we'll be serving fish sticks and chicken nuggets (your choice) as well as other sides and dessert. The cost is $2 per child, $4 per adult, or $8 will feed your entire family! If you've never eaten with us before, the first time is free. We start at 5:00, followed by AWANA for the kids at 6:00, and adult Bible study in the garage classroom.

Christ Came to Save Sinners

We hope that you had a wonderful Easter Sunday! Pastor Gabriel Hughes continued our series in 1 Timothy, preaching from 1 Timothy 1:12-17 in a sermon entitled Christ Came to Save Sinners. The audio is available in our sermon player on the right. Here is the video!

Our Easter Service This Sunday

We hope you are having a Good Friday, remembering this as the day our Savior Christ died on the cross for our sins. If this is the day that He died, why do we call it Good Friday? Because He died so you would not have to. Romans 3:24-25 says, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus."

We have three services on Easter Sunday. The traditional service is at 8:30, followed by our Easter Egg Hunt which will begin at 9:45 on the church grounds. The kids will finish the hunt and head to their classrooms for a Bible lesson. Then our contemporary service begins at 11:00 with our potluck to follow at 12:15. Bring something to share at the potluck if you can. If not, don't let that stop you from joining us for Easter dinner! We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Entrusted With the Gospel

As followers of Jesus Christ, we have been entrusted with sharing the gospel, and doing so according to sound doctrine. Yesterday, Pastor Gabriel finished up a three-part series on 1 Timothy 1:3-11 talking about the importance of how the gospel is understood, communicated, and lived out in the church. On Easter Sunday, we will begin a two-week study of verses 12-17, where Paul says, "Christ came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost." Please join us!

Guest Speaker This Evening

For tonight's Sunday evening service, we welcome Kent Otott from the Kansas chapter of Teens for Christ. The service begins at 6:00. Also, don't forget that Divine Design, our women's Bible study, is this afternoon at 3:00. The softball practice that was scheduled for this afternoon has been postponed. We'll have our first practice on April 27.

Pastor Gabe's Noah Film Review

Religious leaders all over America have been putting their support behind the film Noah. But the movie is not what it seems. It's not made from a Bible story. On the contrary, it's a story that was crafted out of a gnostic text.

Pastor Gabriel offered his first review of the film on Friday, just after seeing the movie. A couple of days later, his understanding of the film had changed. Read the second, more eye-opening review by clicking here. It is imperative that we know our Bible.
