“Now all glory to God, who is able through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” - Ephesians 3:20   Over the past few days, we have mentioned the terrible mistake made by Mike Lazaridis, the former co-CEO of Blackberry, to not “upgrade his equipment.” What we did not mention is why he chose against allowing users to surf the internet on the ...  Read More

by Ministry Support on July 13th, 2022
“So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, ‘Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?’” - Acts 1:6   Why settle for good enough and getting by when we can be more, have more, and do more for the kingdom of God?

by Ministry Support on June 28th, 2022
“With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: ‘He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.’” - Ezra 3:11If you want to fight back when something triggers the emotions of your past, first, you must keep working. It might be difficult but getting distracted and being unproductive is exactly the devil’s plan. You must move forward. In Ezra 3, the Israelites were triggered. But while th...  Read More

Personal Worship
by Ministry Support on April 7th, 2022
“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” - Psalm 95:6Over the past few days, we have talked about what happens when God is allowed into our lives. God will not only lift our spirit and give us a new vision, but He will also give us renewed worship. This worship is decidedly personal. We see this in Genesis 18 where Abraham realizes He is in the presence of God wh...  Read More

by Ministry Support on April 6th, 2022
“He said, ‘If I have found favor in your eyes, my Lord, do not pass your servant by. Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree.

by No Limits on September 5th, 2021
“The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I a...  Read More

Don’t Forsake Community
by Ministry Support on April 30th, 2021
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)For nearly the past year, the church has been forced to radically alter how we do business in light of this global health crisis. The pandemic has forced us to leave our facilities, remain in our homes, and worship God in our living rooms, rather than in the sanctuary, while we wait for things to get better.  It has prevented us f...  Read More

Worship In The Waiting
by Ministry Support on February 6th, 2021
Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. (Luke 2:25)As we take a look at Simeon in the Gospel of Luke, the text describes him as “righteous and devout” in the face of what seemed to be a divine delay. In other words, Simeon remained faithful. He continued to live a life of consistent ...  Read More

Beyond the Church Walls
by Ministry Support on September 24th, 2020
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. (Psalm 139:7-10)  In light of the public health crisis facing our nation and our world, many o...  Read More

Fellowship Within the Church
by Ministry Support on August 30th, 2020
And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people.

They are some of the largest...  Read More

by Ministry Support on June 30th, 2020
The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised. (Job 1:21) Job’s life story is one that shows us that regardless of what struggles and discouragement you face, life still goes on. Even when disappointments and hardships come up, we must keep going. He was able to reach that resolve by putting his situation in its proper perspective.   Job was initially discouraged. ...  Read More
