Hello Christ’s Church Family and Friends,

This Sunday as we gather for worship at 10:00 a.m., I am going to be sharing a very important message that I have titled “I am Swamped and You are Sleeping!”   If you know someone that is going through a difficult time and needs to hear an encouraging Word, bring them with you tomorrow.  I am expecting a powerful move of God’s Spirit tomorrow! 

This week is Vacation Bible School.  Because of that we will have SIGNIFICANT changes to our scheduled services.  Please note those changes below.

Sunday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. our MPact Girls and Royal Rangers will be meeting for their Rain Gutter Regatta.  Come join the fun!

Vacation Bible School decorations will be moving forward as we finalize the buildings getting ready for the Children.  The crew will be working Sunday afternoon getting everything completed.

Ladies – The Women’s Ministry will be meeting Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. to PRAY over the buildings and for the Children in preparation for the week.  Ladies come out and join us as we PRAY!


Monday morning ALL VBS Volunteers need to arrive at 8:00 a.m.   The Children will be arriving starting around 8:30 a.m. so we need everyone to gather for prayer at 8:00 a.m. and be in place.

VBS begins at 9:00 a.m. and will run through Noon, Monday through Friday.  Be praying each day during that time and whenever God speaks to you for safety, good weather, peaceful classrooms, and for a Revelation of God’s Love to each child!  Also be praying for the Volunteers for good health and extra patience!


Tuesday morning Ladies Bible Study or Evening Intercessory Prayer will not be meeting due to VBS!


Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. we will be meeting for SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDIES.   Due to VBS we will meet only one Adult Class in the Worship Center Auditorium and all Children will gather in the Commons.   Youth will meet in the Youth room and Young Adults will be meeting at the Starbucks on El Dorado.


Friday night at 7:00 p.m. we will be having our VBS Celebration.    We need everyone to be there as we meet the families of the children we ministered to throughout the week at VBS and love on them.  After the Celebration we will be taking down decorations and getting our buildings put back together for Sunday morning services.   Come out and join us!


Here is this week’s Blessing:

In the name of Jesus I bless you to know that you are a masterpiece in progress, a person under construction.   God has chosen you as His masterpiece and has begun a good work in you that He will be faithful to complete.  May you begin to see the Work of God in every aspect of your life.   And as you see what God is doing in you, may you cooperate with His Spirit working in you so that you do not hinder the process.

And when you do not see or understand the reason for a portion of God’s working in your life, may you be filled with peace and joy knowing that you are in the best hands, the hands that lovingly created you and will sustain you until you are complete.

Be blessed with patience, a fresh love revelation and new endurance to work alongside God as He creates in you that pure spotless bride that His son Jesus is longing for.  And when Jesus breaks the clouds to return for His Bride, may you stand with confidence knowing that your completion will come with the sound of the trumpet announcing His return.

In Jesus name, I bless you.

In the name of Jesus I bless you with a fresh and new revelation of the precious role you have as a woman and a mother. You have been entrusted with the care of human life from the very beginning in the womb and may God grant you a deeper understanding of that blessing so that you may express God’s unlimited love for every child in your life.

Be blessed with wisdom as you provide knowledge and understanding to your children, both biological and spiritual. 

Receive fresh faith and courage as you face times of fear and pain and in times of uncertainly and doubt, may you stand in the hope and peace that is found in Christ Jesus.

May the Holy Spirit minister comfort to each mother who is experiencing sorrow today, in remembering the loss of a child, or facing illness, we speak healing.  For those estranged from their children or families, receive reconciliation and restoration and for those with children facing danger, may you know the tender mercy and love of our heavenly Father. 

May the Holy Spirit constantly inspire and strengthen you as you follow the example of Mary, the mother of Jesus, demonstrating fidelity, humility, and self-giving love. May each mother receive God’s Grace abundantly as we look forward to the eternal joy of the life to come.
