Easter Service – April 12, 2020

easter-church-mediaLuke 24:1-8

But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.  They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.  So they went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus.  As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes.  The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground.

Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive?  He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.” Then they remembered that he had said this.

Good Friday Service – April 10, 2020

cropped-crossIsaiah 53:1-6

Who has believed our message? To whom has the Lord revealed his powerful arm? My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him. He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.

He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole.  He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own.

Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.

Monthly Message – April 2020

DON’T JUST DO SOMETHING, STAND THERE! Rev. Tim Purcell

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea… “ Psalm 46:1-2 (NIV

Over the past several days my mind has repeatedly been drawn to Psalm 46. As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to build, as the jobless numbers climb, as 401k accounts shrink and as we become increasingly isolated, fear is a very natural response. And yet, the Psalmist declares boldly that because God is our refuge and strength, even if the earth gives way we will not fear.

Fear is an incredibly powerful force. One doctor observed that “fear is the most devastating enemy of the human personality.” I think he’s right. Fear paralyzes us, making it impossible for us to think clearly and behave rationally. And it’s not just fear of contracting COVID-19, or worse yet, someone I love contracting it. It’s fear of losing income, fear for family members, fear of isolation, even fear that my church might not survive. So, what’s the key to overcoming fear, even fear in a worldwide pandemic? Look toward the end of the Psalm in verse 10: “Be still and know that I am God.” Be still? We’re all familiar with the phrase, “Don’t just stand there, do something!” A missionary named Don Seymour reversed it; “Don’t just do something, stand there!” That’s kind of the idea behind the Psalmist’s counsel to be still. When confronted by fear conventional wisdom says, “Sleep less, try harder, do more.” But God says, “Be still.” Being still has kind of been forced on us, hasn’t it? That’s not all bad if we use the stillness to know God. The benefit of being still is found in verse 11 of the Psalm; “The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”

It’s interesting that when I’m rushing about, consumed with fear and worry, I lose all awareness of the fact that the LORD Almighty is with me and I start to believe that I have to fix
things myself. But when I am still before the Lord, I am reminded that the God of Jacob is my fortress. It’s not the economy, not medical science, and certainly not my efforts that keep me safe. It’s the God of Jacob.

An old man was out walking with his grandson. “How far are we from home?” he asked. “I don’t know,” answered the boy. “Well, where are we?” he asked. Again came the answer, “I don’t know.” “Sounds to me like you’re lost,” said Granddad. Quickly the boy replied, “I can’t be lost. I’m with you.”

Be still. The Lord Almighty is with us. We can’t be lost.
