In the past few months, churches have attempted to do worship and gather in many ways, with varying degrees of success and participation. But nothing replaces the in-person free worship and fellowship which takes place when we are in direct contact with one another in the Lord’s house.
This does not, however, come without cost. Churches who have chosen to take such a stand have been fined, scapegoated, and suffered other consequences because of their decision to obey God rather than man….
Praying Through Adversity
Many of us may have been experiencing a difficult week and many forms of adversity….What seems to be common in all these cases of adversity is that there does not seem to be an end to these adverse situations. In fact, there often is a sense of fear or dread of what may be coming next.
Call to Repentance
Today, September 27th, has been declared Repentance Sunday and we are joining with thousands of churches throughout America in dedicating time for prayers of repentance and revival during our Sunday gathering.

Recently, we have seen the political sparring ramping up with the Democratic National Convention last week and the upcoming Republican National Convention, which starts tomorrow. Even though we may or may not be into politics, it is important that we realize what is at stake, especially with issues that concern biblical principles and foundations.

How do we do we work through these uncertain times? More importantly, how secure are we in the Lord when everything else seems to be falling apart?
We are seeing many instances where it appears that churches are being picked on or discriminated against by the government or by people of influence during this coronavirus pandemic. This has resulted in churches making changes on when we gather, how we gather, and how we worship. How does God want us to respond to those who persecute us?
