Reaping Your Reward
Assuming what you harvest will happen at the same time you sow is not normal or reasonable. Once you sow, you wait with faith and expectancy, doing the work that needs to be done until the harvest comes. When you sow financially, there is not an immediate response either. You must wait for the power of compound interest to work its “magic.” When you invest in your spiritual life, do you expect instant returns? God brings your work to maturity and makes your faithfulness become fruitfulness, but it takes a minute. Come care for your spiritual life with us this week.

“Remember there is a natural delay between planting and harvesting” - Rick Warren
You Reap What You Sow
• Farmers know this
• We know this
Be Careful What You Plant
• You will either plant death or life
→ Your harvest will be what you plant
• What are you sowing?
• Plant Life
♢ Matthew 6:19-20
Farming is Hard (Work)
• Much of the harvest doesn’t depend on you
• Much does depend on you
You Reap After a Wait
• Know what time you are in
• Be diligent during the wait
• Remember to go out and harvest
Life Application
• Check what you are investing in the Kingdom and be sure you are investing more in God than in yourself
• If you don’t have an Eeyore yet, find one and start praying for them.
• If you have an Eeyore, plant some hope and encouragement in their lives this week.

Let's Get Connected
The most important way to stay in communication is through our online program, "OnRealm" or the phone version "Connect". It allows you to get information that is only shared inside the church family, get a first look at what is shared on other social media platforms and connect with each other. "Connect" also allows you a secure place to give. Finally, it acts as a virtual church directory! In an emergency, it is where we go first to look for you and how you are doing.

Communion Sundays

Communion is offered monthly, usually the first Sunday of the month. Communion elements can be requested and will be delivered in the most efficient way. Please notify us two weeks ahead of Communion Sunday so we can do our best to make sure the elements are delivered on time. Each packet has been personally prayed over and blessed by the pastors.

Prayer Requests

Prayer is very important at our church.  Our Pastors and Intercessors welcome the opportunity to include your requests in their prayers.
Pastor's invite you to Coffee and Fellowship
