Sermon - Jim Andrews, Pastor

In the Beginning

John 1:1-5

Word From the Pastor

Those who best understand the beginning of things will best understand the outcomes of things. The major reason our generation has gone so morally beserk is because most people are ignorant of what was in the beginning, cannot connect the dots and are uninterested in learning the truth. Science for all its proud professions of understanding is dumber than a post about ultimate things and truly in the dark about the beginning of things. As we can all see, it leaves us mired in a world still just as broken, blind, unjust, hateful, angry, and spiraling out of control as ever. And always will until these pretenders come to terms with “in the beginning,’ That mystery is only unveiled by divine revelation and to those wise enough to believe and heed it.

Heart to Heart on Tuesday Mornings

The Life of Samson

Author: W. Robert Godfrey, Cost $35

New study begins Tuesday, May 24, 2022. If I were to mention the name of Samson, many would immediately associate it with the Bible. A man with great strength. But who was he and what can we learn from his life? Despite his problems and failures he was instrumental in rescuing Israel from the Philistines. God’s plans and purposes are never thwarted by our weaknesses.

Mission Ministry

Mission India

As we close in on a new fiscal year (July 1, 2022-June 30, 2023), the Mission Committee has had to carefully consider whether support for our Mission Outreaches should be continued and this includes…Mission India!

In this last year, Lake supported a year-long Children’s Bible Club. Two hundred children enrolled in the Bible club and as the year progressed there was a dramatic improvement of in behavior of the children and in their relationships with their parents.

The children were able to “breathe in” many scriptural truths from the Bible which gave them an opportunity to see these truths working in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic in their state of Andhra Pradesh. Mission India reports that a strong and credible foundation was established through this Bible Club experience for these 200 children from which is expected many changed lives from living under the bondage of Hinduism to the joy of knowing and serving Jesus! And so, we believe our continued support is vital to this mission. Mission India does not invite our physical support mainly because the law in India regarding “conversion” which augurs against “Bringing People to Christ” makes equipping local Believers in India best to carry out the work of the Gospel.

Trained believers in India accomplish far more than Missionaries for other countries. But what we can and should do is pray for these Indian believers who are reaching out with the Gospel of Jesus to those who otherwise would be unreached.

Pray, pray, and pray every day that our support and encouragement would work to bring many to a Saving Knowledge, Following, Trust, and Love for Jesus!
