Markers Stones of Remembrance

Andrea Toews children's pastor
Passing on the faith
This is a new Family Fusion Sunday

Kids are advancing to the next level. 
Prayer for the kids
Savannah teaching Graham prayer of blessing
God is the story weaver weaving his story into our lives. 
We're supporting a child in Mexico and the kids brought enough money to pay the support. 
Luke 17 NIrV
As he was entering a village, ten men with leprosy met him. They stood at a distance, When he saw them he said, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went along, they were cleansed. Then Jesus said, "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?
Luke 17:12‭, ‬14‭-‬14‭, ‬17 NET

Leprosy was a terrible disease. Pain then loss of sensation and loss of digits. It still happens. They have to be removed from families and contact with others. They had to stay far away and announce that they were unclean. 
These 10 men yelled at Jesus. He told them to go see the priest,  the health inspector. That didn't heal them until they were on their way and they were healed with new digits. Their nightmare was finally over. Only one came back to yell his thankfulness. 
The other 9 were likely thankful too. They didn't come back to Jesus. Our gratitude should take us back to Jesus. He is the author of our stories. 
Thank you God that you are the Great Physician. 
I'm never alone. 

We teach God's every Sunday. We choose to follow Him. 
Gr 4 students. We are walking through life together. You each get a Bible from your parents. They have written notes to remind you to pray for them. Bless them together. 
Gr 6 are passing from children's to youth ministry. 
Andy prayer of blessing. This morning is a morning of hope. 
Pastor Dwight has a gift. 

Gr 12s tribute video. Pray for them. 

Take your stone and write a blessing on it and put it in the box. 

Blessing and a song about God's blessings.

Falcon Lake People's Church

Pray for Alberta fire situation
Pray for Donald Trump day
Tragedy in Budapest 

Pastor Brian Hamilton

Father in heaven we thank you for loving us. You know more about me than I know about myself. Thank you for hearing us. We can come to you with all our burdens. 
We pray for rain. 
Pray for all leaders that you would give them a heart of wisdom from you. Give them a passion for righteousness.
Give Christians your passion and fervor. 
Pray that the kingdom would reach all areas of the world. 
Pray for hurting families. Health issues. Grief. Korean families. Where there is despair we pray for hope. In Jesus name, amen. 

For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, Now the church is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
Ephesians 1:15‭, ‬23 NET

Many are looking for the perfect job. 11.7 careers or jobs per lifetime. 
We have been blessed. 

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of him,  – since the eyes of your heart have been enlightened – so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the incomparable greatness of his power toward us who believe, as displayed in the exercise of his immense strength.  This power he exercised in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms  far above every rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Ephesians 1:17‭-‬21 NET

I am where I am because of where Christ has placed me. 

What a powerful prayer. 2 boys spent Christmas at grandparents. New Year's eve Mrs. Santa would come. The younger boy prayed real load for a smart watch because grandma was hard of hearing. 

Paul prays that the Ephesians would get to know Jesus better. Only God can give it to them. Not for selfish reasons. 
1. 17 keep asking 
1. Know him better. A relationship. Devotions often don't reflect a good relationship with God. 30 seconds of prayer. Poor relationship. Share the  heart of life. 100% 
A couple I know- he starts a sentence and she completes it. Every time. That's how we should know Jesus. 
Thank you Lord that you are in me. Lord help me getting to know Christ better. Thank him. 
2. Know the hope to what he has called you. Not wishful thinking. It's true. God gives us hope. 
I've never been as old as now. I'll never be as young as now. 
3. Know the inheritance. Jesus has given us righteousness. We are one with Christ. He has your heart to do his work through you. Who are the people in our neighborhood? As we're walking down the street? 
Whatever is over our head is under His feet. 3 times Jesus said satan is ruling this world. Jesus is above all rulers. Satan will be banished. 
Bad things happen to good people. It's a fallen world. In Christ we are safe. 
Your security is in Him. 
Pray these things into our lives.

Prairie Presbyterian at University

Pastor Matt

New member testimonial Sarah 
I'm from Alberta. Decided to join
Baptized twice. As a baby and as a 10 year old. Accepted Jesus. At age 16 found out about my older sister was gay. We were not allowed to speak at church and eventually got expelled. Came to Winnipeg stopped going to church and lost God. 
HillSong I lost my heart changed my life

John 9

His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who committed the sin that caused him to be born blind, this man or his parents?"  Jesus answered, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but he was born blind so that the acts of God may be revealed through what happens to him.
John 9:2‭-‬3 NET

That was normal thinking back then. Jacob and Esau battled in the womb. They sinned before they were born.

God's work is to be revealed through this. Day night imagery. Jesus is day. His death is night. 

Jesus spit smeared mud and sent the blind man to the pool. 
Siloam means sent. Wash your dirty face. 

Then the neighbors and the people who had seen him previously as a beggar began saying, "Is this not the man who used to sit and beg?" He replied, "The man called Jesus made mud, smeared it on my eyes and told me, 'Go to Siloam and wash.' So I went and washed, and was able to see."  (Now the day on which Jesus made the mud and caused him to see was a Sabbath.)  Then some of the Pharisees began to say, "This man is not from God, because he does not observe the Sabbath." But others said, "How can a man who is a sinner perform such miraculous signs?" Thus there was a division among them.
John 9:8‭, ‬11‭-‬11‭, ‬14‭, ‬16 NET

He's a prophet? Old testament prophets did washing. 

They asked the parents, "Is this your son, whom you say was born blind? Then how does he now see?" So his parents replied, "We know that this is our son and that he was born blind. But we do not know how he is now able to see, nor do we know who caused him to see. Ask him, he is a mature adult. He will speak for himself."
John 9:19‭-‬21 NET

You're out!  was a new term for the Jews. John's community had experienced expulsion. 

Then they summoned the man who used to be blind a second time and said to him, "Promise before God to tell the truth. We know that this man is a sinner." He replied, "I do not know whether he is a sinner. I do know one thing – that although I was blind, now I can see." The man replied, "This is a remarkable thing, that you don't know where he comes from, and yet he caused me to see!  We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but if anyone is devout and does his will, God listens to him.  If this man were not from God, he could do nothing."
John 9:24‭-‬25‭, ‬30‭-‬31‭, ‬33 NET

He could have argued with them that Jesus was not a sinner. Sometimes arguement works but often solidifies position. Sharing the story works. 

You also want to become his disciples? 

Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, so he found the man and said to him, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?"  He said, "Lord, I believe," and he worshiped him.
John 9:35‭, ‬38 NET

Jesus does the finding.

Jesus replied, "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin, but now because you claim that you can see, your guilt remains."
John 9:41 NET

Mother's Day

Pastor Andaza Hezekiah
Jesus is here. We worship you.
Hiding The Next Generation
Exodus 1
A man from the household of Levi married a woman who was a descendant of Levi.  The woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a healthy child, she hid him for three months. Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, "Shall I go and get a nursing woman for you from the Hebrews, so that she may nurse the child for you?" Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will pay your wages." So the woman took the child and nursed him. When the child grew older she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, "Because I drew him from the water."
Exodus 2:1‭-‬2‭, ‬7‭, ‬9‭-‬10 NET

There is a contract out on today's children. So there was at Moses' time and at Jesus birth

The grace of God is good. When we make our homes an ark for our children. If we allow the world to influence our family the kids will follow the devil. 1 teaspoon of poison will mess you up. 25% evil influence will mess you up. 

Why is Christ vilified today? 
This generation is thrown into the Nile river of drugs. 17 year girls are addicted. 
Jesus nailed the contract to the cross. 

Mrs. Pastor
I will not sign a contract for the devil. We're responsible for saving them for the rest of life. Send them scripture verses when they need them

Mothers that love Jesus are a huge asset to the public. 

Train up the children they will follow you. 

Encourage your children to go to church and Young Adults. They will be the leaders of tomorrow. Tell them they are being prepared to be great leaders of tomorrow and stand for Christ. 

It's possible to be great mothers today. Jochebed had God's grace. You have that grace for your race. 

Take care of yourself in order to take care of the next generation. Fathers support the mothers. Help them to take a break. Treat yourself and refresh. 
Don't dwell on the past. Jesus does not condemn the past. Don't let the past condemn you. 
Kick discouragement in the guts and keep hope alive. Rise up against discouragement. Jochebed preserved a generation. 

Therefore, strengthen  your listless hands and your weak knees ,  Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness, for without it no one will see the Lord.
Hebrews 12:12‭, ‬14 NET

There is serious conflict in homes. That should not be. Love the children equally.

Hide the next generation. You'll see the results. 

Mothers get tote bags.

1 Thessalonians 2

Bible Project video
For you yourselves know, brothers and sisters, that our visit with you was not without result. On the contrary, after we had previously suffered and were treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, we were emboldened by our God to speak the gospel of God to you in spite of great opposition. Indeed you are our glory and joy!
1 Thessalonians 2:1‭-‬2‭, ‬20 CSB

Johnny Dodsworth 
Everyone has issues about reading the Bible every day. 
The Word of God v13
This is why we constantly thank God, because when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you welcomed it not as a human message, but as it truly is, the word of God, which also works effectively in you who believe.
1 Thessalonians 2:13 CSB

Paul Sylvanas Timothy PST
Share life together. Food fellowship
What does it mean to receive the Word of God as it is from God?
In the NT there is a new definition. Jesus is the Word from the beginning. 
Starts with belief, obedience, into eternity. 
Including the sufferings of Christ. 
I believe in the infallible Word Jesus. Bruxy Cavey
When we read the Word we are meeting with Jesus.
Information retention is the world's mantra. We need to read the Word for Formation with an engaged mind. To meet with Jesus. 
Come to Life Journal 8pm Wednesday to learn more.

Share your experience in faith and life in Jesus openly and honestly. Allow the Holy Spirit to do the convicting. 

How can we bring joy to God? Accept the Word as is and work in and through us. 
This is a lifelong journey. Get into a Lifegroup. Learn to share the gospel. 
Action step 1 watch the video. Read the Bible more to meet with Jesus.

The field is bigger than your house

JoyFountain church 70 attendees

The Word of God is able to build us up and give us an inheritance.

Sundays we gather. Coffee in the hall. Prayer in 101
Spring cleaning May 4th
Mother's Day bring your family.
Prayer Points 
1 children and youth
2 families strong in faith
3 strong church and lots of baptisms
4 declare higher ground

Along the way they found an Egyptian man in a field and brought him to David. They gave him some bread to eat and water to drink. They also gave him part of a fig cake and two clusters of raisins, for he hadn't had anything to eat or drink for three days and nights. Before long his strength returned. "To whom do you belong, and where do you come from?" David asked him. "I am an Egyptian—the slave of an Amalekite," he replied. "My master abandoned me three days ago because I was sick. "Will you lead me to this band of raiders?" David asked. The young man replied, "If you take an oath in God's name that you will not kill me or give me back to my master, then I will guide you to them." Nothing was missing: small or great, son or daughter, nor anything else that had been taken. David brought everything back.
1 Samuel 30:11‭-‬13‭, ‬15‭, ‬19 NLT

You are always in a battlefield. There will always be challenges. Married couples have trouble. Jesus came to give us more life. 
Athletes are fighters. When the odds are against you it's easy to forget who you are. Faith has to be challenged. 
Churches tend to fight the leader. That happens in business. We are all under attack. 
David's fighters were well trained. They were a team. You can't win alone. 
They found someone in the field. They took time to help him. 
You do yourself a favor by being part of a team.

Give them water. The Holy Spirit is the water. Those found in the field must be brought to the PRIEST and given WATER. 

Truth can survive on its own. Dreamers come together and there will be an explosion. 
Joseph had a dream. 
The field is bigger than your house and family. 
You have to depend on the Lord and train our children the best we can. We need our friends. We need to look up to God. Help the neighbors. We need at least 3 fathers in our lives. Fellowship after church is part of maintaining our fire.

Lazarus Palm Sunday

Mission trip

John 11
A man named Lazarus was sick. He lived in Bethany with his sisters, Mary and Martha. Then he said, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but now I will go and wake him up." So he told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead.  Thomas, nicknamed the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let's go, too—and die with Jesus." Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died. Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.  Then Jesus wept. Then Jesus shouted, "Lazarus, come out!"  And the dead man came out, his hands and feet bound in graveclothes, his face wrapped in a headcloth. Jesus told them, "Unwrap him and let him go!"
John 11:1‭, ‬11‭-‬11‭, ‬14‭, ‬16‭-‬16‭, ‬21‭, ‬25‭-‬25‭, ‬35‭, ‬43‭-‬44 NLT

Delbert Enns pastor 

The cemetery evokes emotions. 4 funerals in the last 4 weeks makes me reflective. Death is something we have no control over. 
When will I die? We plan to live not die. 

If Jesus could not handle death then everything he did would be meaningless. 
Jesus dealt with death. 

For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless.
1 Corinthians 15:13‭-‬14 

You want to see a miracle? 
Has death been spoken over you? 
Are you emotionally dead? 

The one you love is ill.
The Father will get the glory. Everything needs to glorify God. 
Jesus said you need to wait. Resolve the problem? 
Nothing ends in death. 
There are a lot of people in the story. Thomas the doubter had questions. He was riddled with unbelief. Let's go die with Jesus. 
Martha met Jesus saying you don't care. Mary was sitting in discouragement. Why bother? Her faith had died. Satan likes discouragement. 
Jesus talked to daddy. Prayer was his response to hard times. Get rid of the deadness. Unbind the death. It does not have the final word. 
Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life.
He calls you by name. He called only Lazarus.

Jesus was a man of sorrows. Jesus is calling you out of the deadness of your marriage. We think we can fix it on our own. 
Pray. Jesus I let you take control today.

The Healing of the born blind man

John 9
"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.  While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
John 9:3‭, ‬5 NIV
There are 5 stages to the story
1. The person
2. The problem Jesus sinner? 
3. The parents
4. The persecution 
5. The pardon 
What else is there behind the story? 
Jesus has love. A miracle happens. Ultimately it's about healing the soul. 
Jesus is the satisfying bread of life. 
This is the 6th miracle recorded by John. 35.000.000 people are legally blind. This man was born blind. 
He was thrown out of the synagogue when he confessed Jesus. 
Do it yourself is easier than asking for help. 
Spiritual Transformation 
1. A man called Jesus
The man was a beggar. A nobody. Who sinned? Adam and Eve sinned and thought that God punished them. Blame came in. 
How was the wrong question. 
  "How then were your eyes opened?" they asked.
John 9:3‭, ‬5‭-‬5‭, ‬10 NIV
2. A prophet. The pharisees had to investigate
This prompted them to turn on the man healed of blindness, putting him on the spot in front of them all, demanding an answer. They asked, "Who do you say he is—this man who opened your blind eyes?" "He's a prophet of God!" the man replied.
John 9:17 TPT
3. Man of God I tell you, if this man isn't from God, he wouldn't be able to heal me like he has!"
John 9:33 TPT
A human divine individual. One to worship
4 son of God 
Jesus replied, "You're looking right at him. He's speaking with you. It's me, the one in front of you now." Then the man threw himself at his feet and worshiped Jesus and said, "Lord, I believe in you!"
John 9:37‭-‬38 TPT

5 worship
Jesus is indeed the Son of God.  John 1.49

Nathanael blurted out, "Teacher, you are truly the Son of God and the King of Israel!"
John 1:49 TPT

To worship Jesus is the fullest expression of faith and transformation. 
We the beggars worship Jesus the Good Shepherd. John 10
Jesus wil set you free to worship. Where are you? 
Let's worship now. 

I'm a child of God 

Coming up
14 Lazarus is raised. 
19 Jesus crucified

Eat salt together and you'll be friends for life. Break bread together and you're safe. 

Bread is the most popular food. 
Christians in Jordan will yell at each other and then sit down and break bread. 
Delbert Enns pastor 

The bread of God is the One who comes down from heaven. He gives life to the world."
John 6:33 NIRV
Bread exists for a purpose. Nothing exists by itself. There is a purpose for everything. 

All over the world the good news is bearing fruit and growing. It has been doing that among you since the day you heard it. That is when you understood God's grace in all its truth.
Colossians 1:6 NIRV

Who likes the crunchy outside of the loaf of bread or the cherry inside? 

Jesus multiplied the bread. 

What I'm about to tell you is true. Everyone who believes has life forever.  "I am the bread of life. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Everyone who eats some of this bread will live forever. The bread is my body. I will give it for the life of the world."
John 6:47‭-‬48‭, ‬51 NIRV

Jesus is the head of life. Do we walk away from Jesus when things don't go well? Wake up. There is a bigger picture. 
People followed Jesus because they wanted to see more signs. Not to believe in Jesus. He was considered a prophet. They thought he was Moses and would keep feeding them. They wanted him to become their king. 

Too often we think Jesus should give us whatever we need. 

Communion to share the bread. Why do you want Jesus?

Jesus is testing our
Spirit of scarcity

The Word became a human being. He made his home with us. We have seen his glory. It is the glory of the one and only Son. He came from the Father. And he was full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NIRV

Jesus the way the truth and the life

Does every story have to have a happy ending? 
Where Jesus shows up there is a happy ending
Delbert Enns pastor 
Did 2 funerals last week. My heart is heavy. Jaden Reimer Anne Ginter. Will they make it? 

The lamb of God takes away the sin of the world

He is the sovereign over all

John 4 The Faith story of a Nobleman

Once more, Jesus visited Cana in Galilee. Cana is where he had turned the water into wine. A royal official was there. His son was sick in bed at Capernaum. The official heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea. So he went to Jesus and begged him to come and heal his son. The boy was close to death.  Jesus replied, "You may go. Your son will live." The man believed what Jesus said, and so he left.
John 4:46‭-‬47‭, ‬50 NIRV

Jesus takes care of the sheep.
30km distance Herod's relative wanted Jesus to travel with him to Herod's castle. 
Jesus didn't do what the man wanted.

The son he lives. Zao in Greek.
In the 7th hour. The servants are excited. 
The royal became a committed follower of Jesus. His family became part of the story. 
Jesus makes things possible
Do you believe God can do it for you! 
Jesus wants so much more.

Funeral notes Martha Kroeker

Les Kroeker. Aunt Martha nudged me to accept Jesus 
"Martha," Jesus said, " You don't have to wait until then.  I am the Resurrection, and I am Life Eternal. Anyone who clings to me in faith, even though he dies, will live forever.  And the one who lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?"

John 11:25‭-‬26 TPT

Obituary by Jennifer Kroeker

Afterglow poem 

A short funeral poem by Helen Lowrie Marshall about happy memories living on after a loved one has gone.


I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun;
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done

Sisters tribute
She was depressed. 
Can't say goodbye just see you later
Erna traveled together
Scrabble was a challenge
Lots of hiking and walking
2 weeks ago she had a wonderful dream. The angels took you there. We will miss you. 
Yolanda Quirung my aunt loved us. We had her in Mexico as a school teacher
She was a good strict teacher.
Dad Jake teased her on the narrow roads. 
Lived with her for one summer. She decluttered all the time. 
Worked together on newsletters for 
Rose Wiebe 35 years of friendship. Her clients felt safe with her. We went hiking in Pinawa knowing this could be the last time. She read missionary letters. If you have not made that commitment to follow Jesus do it today
Elsie. We are grateful to all the friends that loved her

O Praise The Name (AnĂ¡stasis)
I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me.
I see His wounds, His hands, His feet.
My Savior on that cursed tree
His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph's tomb.
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone
O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Gary Koop pastor it's OK to clap

Martha and I had a special relationship. Proof reading and editing for each other. 1994 she joined SEMC
She wore a bright dress to brighten her environment
Jesus's death was devastating and then the joy of the resurrection followed by I'm going away. 
In 2008 we prayed about macular degeneration. The dark clouds lifted. 
She shared with her SS class that she was depressed. Communication is necessary. 
Where is God? She died at home alone. 
All authority has been given to Jesus He'll be with us to the end of the age. I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS. 
You shall call him God With Us Always
This era will end when Jesus returns. The risen one is alive. 

Jesus is with you whenever. Shopping. Driving. Through all the stages of life.  I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS. 
Be encouraged. Jesus was with Martha. She heard the voice of her shepherd escorting her into eternal joy. 
There are times when we fail. A book is never finished but there is a time to publish. 
Know that Jesus is with you. Jesus made a partnership commitment. 

Dan song 
How Great Thou Art 

Jesus is the way the truth and the life

"Don't worry or surrender to your fear. For you've believed in God, now trust and believe in me also.
John 14:1 TPT

Delbert Enns pastor
Our family was very competitive. Mom was a great cheer leader. 

Jesus challenged Peter. Tradition does not compare to Jesus. You can follow. 
John 8:48
Jesus answered them, "If I were to tell you how great I am, it would mean nothing. But my Father is the One who will prove it and will glorify me. Isn't he the One you claim is your God?  Jesus said to them, "I give you this eternal truth: I have existed long before Abraham was born, for I AM!"
John 8:54‭, ‬58 TPT

Jesus replied, "Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.
John 14:23 TPT
I got lost in the wilderness of Arizona. Out of water. 7km off track. Finally found a road. 

How do I get to the path. Follow Jesus. 

Jesus explained, "I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one comes next to the Father except through  union with me.  To know me is to know my Father too.
John 14:6 TPT
What map do you need? Jesus is the way. Follow him and you need no map. There is no other way.

You can't reinvent a way. He died for you.

Do you love Jesus as he loves you?

What is God to you? How can I bring more glory to God?

In the world but not of the world

Preaching is scary
Bro Ger Reyes
Heart of Worship
Delivering message from God. 

We will all transition to eternity some to heaven some lost in hell for all eternity. 

You shall be holy to me, for I the Lord am holy and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be mine.
Leviticus 20:26 ESV
What's holy? To separate. Set apart. Unique. Which one is more like God? Firefly or fiery angels? Neither

I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
John 17:15‭-‬16 ESV

Real joy is for those who follow Jesus and continue in sanctification. 

What leads to self assurance of salvation? Those who think they are Christians because their parents are. 
Reduced the gospel with no Christ in their life. 
The alter call, the prayer, raised hand
Conversion requires sanctification. Conviction of sin. 
We think we have a plan for our lives. God's plan may be worse.
Put your faith alone in Jesus. 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.

At Paul's time Christians lost their lives of they wouldn't Hail Caesar. 

We announce in front the church how many were saved today when they raised their hands. We should start coaching them. 

Repentance and faith is what it takes to be saved. 
Doctrine of Regeneration.
Paul Washert said God changes a heart of stone to a living heart.

God goes deeper into your heart. 
A pig enjoys the bucket of slop. When he becomes a Christian he vomits at the slop.

Christianity is a love God relationship not hate God. 

Married men have a NO relationship with all other women.

Sin is serious 

3. Go through sanctification so God can conform you to Jesus. Take on his shape. 
4. You will bear fruit. Recognized by Jesus fruit. If not you should tremble. Are you truthful? Lifetime of good fruit. 
5. You are disciplined. Only the parent disciplines their children and so does God. 

God hates Esau and loves Jacob. 

Your assurance lies in Jesus and his finished work. 

The gospel. Open the Bible and get saved and get a sense of joy.

The Prayer of Jabez

Living Word Church in San Pedro Belize pastor Ian Zaldivar

Outreach in San Pedro every month until the rainy season starts

The Beatitudes part 8
V3 and verse 10 - for theirs in the kingdom of heaven. Be born again and be persecuted. 
To be harassed consistently. 
Blessed are you when you are persecuted falsely. You will have your reward in heaven

2 Timothy 3:10-12
The doctrine will produce a new life style when living in Christ Jesus. 
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be treated badly.
2 Timothy 3:12 NIRV
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem. I went there to get to know Peter. I stayed with him for 15 days.
Galatians 1:18 NIRV

Expect persecution 
Paul had 3 years of revelation from Jesus. Not from a Bible school.

Rejoice and be glad. 

Some were laughed at. Some were whipped. Still others were held by chains. They were put in prison. Some were killed with stones. They were sawed in two. They were put to death by the sword. They went around wearing the skins of sheep and goats. They were poor. They were attacked. They were treated badly.
Hebrews 11:36‭-‬37 NIRV

We need to put Jesus first. 
Persecution is a sign that we are effectively living for Jesus.
The result of the gospel is peace. The immediate result is conflict. 

"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me. Anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And anyone who does not pick up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. If anyone finds his life, he will lose it. If anyone loses his life because of me, he will find it.
Matthew 10:37‭-‬39 NIRV

His parents disowned him 29 years ago when he got saved. 9 months later they blessed him.

Everyone in the Roman Catholic church was good with immortality but rejected following Jesus.

God rewards the faithful persecuted. 
If we are having trouble, it is so that you will be comforted and renewed. If we are comforted, it is so that you will be comforted. Then you will be able to put up with the same suffering we have gone through.
2 Corinthians 1:6 NIRV

Jesus stuck it out and said "It is Finished"

But suppose you suffer for being a Christian. Then don't be ashamed. Instead, praise God because you are known by that name.
1 Peter 4:16 NIRV

In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be treated badly.
2 Timothy 3:12 NIRV

Who would you like to meet

Spanish Lookout EMMC
Patrick Friesen SBC

"Our father Jacob gave us the well. He drank from it himself. So did his sons and his flocks and herds. Are you more important than he is?"  Jesus answered, "All who drink this water will be thirsty again. But anyone who drinks the water I give him will never be thirsty. In fact, the water I give him will become a spring of water in him. It will flow up into eternal life."  The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water. Then I will never be thirsty. And I won't have to keep coming here to get water."
John 4:12‭-‬15 NIRV

For a Jewish man to ask a Samaritan woman was all wrong. Do you think you are better than ancestor Jacob?
Look at this adulterous woman. 5 husbands might have died. 

A woman was not left single. She might have been living with her brother. 

When she had a chance to ask a stumper question she asked about where to worship. It was the biggest question you could ask. Gord Penner says focus on the who or why. 

What does it mean to worship God in spirit and truth? Focus on The Messiah Jesus. I AM  Jesus said. That's the first time he revealed himself. 

Is our worship a response to God who he is?

Menno & Leona Loewen wedding

Milton Loewen message
The house is full. Lots of friends. 
I'm happy for my brother and pleased to be here. 
Let your faith guide your life. 
Be joined as one as you pray. 
God ordained the marriage. It is very good. 
Rejoice when you trust God. Let them always shout for joy. God's promise is for those who trust him. 
Revelation 19.7 rejoice at the marriage supper of the lamb. 
It's the blessing of God's creation to have a wedding. 
Be patient in tribulation. 
Isaac was comforted when he married Rebekah. 
Boaz was friendly to Ruth and Ruth was comforted.
I'm happy for Menno and for Leona. 
We are close brothers. 
Menno was joyful when he announced he had a girlfriend.
Let's pray. 
We thank you Lord that they want to follow you and we ask that you bless them. 

We have all prayed for them and we trust that this is God's leading. 

Will you in the sight of God promise to... as long as God gives you life. 
Will you accept his children and grand children as your own?

Will you his children and grand children accept Leona as your own mother and grand mother?

Please stand to affirm.

Baptism and Membership Celebration

Membership is a weird word
Johnny Dodsworth

Does church membership give you a discount? Do you get an ID card?

As a hockey player I lost control. Everything stopped working. Couldn't communicate for a while. Brain scan showed a stroke at age 14. 

Listen with new ears:
For just as the body is one but has many parts; and all the parts of the body, though many, constitute one body; so it is with the Messiah. For indeed the body is not one part but many. If the foot says, "I'm not a hand, so I'm not part of the body," that doesn't make it stop being part of the body. So the eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you"; or the head to the feet, "I don't need you." Now you together constitute the body of the Messiah, and individually you are parts of it.
1 Corinthians (1 Co) 12:12‭, ‬14‭-‬15‭, ‬21‭, ‬27 CJB

A group of people connected to Jesus. Participate in the life of Christ.
The pastor is no more important than any other member. Encourage one another. Connected with one another.
We ask membership candidates to share their testimony. That changes our DNA. Become a member today. 

Jesus said:
I united with them and you with me, so that they may be completely one, and the world thus realize that you sent me, and that you have loved them just as you have loved me.
Yochanan (Jhn) 17:23 CJB

Who are the people in your neighborhood?

Rev. Dr. Lennett Anderson
EBC, The MEETing Place)

And David said, "Is there still anyone left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan's sake?" And Mephibosheth the son of Jonathan, son of Saul, came to David and fell on his face and paid homage. And David said, "Mephibosheth!" And he answered, "Behold, I am your servant." And David said to him, "Do not fear, for I will show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan, and I will restore to you all the land of Saul your father, and you shall eat at my table always."
2 Samuel 9:1‭, ‬6‭-‬7 ESV

Who's missing? Why am I here? God must a reason for leaving us here? 

Jesus leaves us with departing  instructions.
He did not call us to feel good. Go MAKE DISCIPLES. Walk with people. We can do a lot of stuff and miss out on Jesus's command to us. 

Give me eyes to see. Who do you not see? Locally. Who are the people in your neighborhood? The people that you meet when you walking down the street! 
Who's missing from the party? A 40 year celebration. Father was missing. A tissue for my issue of tears. 
Daddy invested in me. Showed kindness. That's still the kindness sunshine in our world.
Our DNA must be kindness. The Samaritan showed kindness. Local missionaries need a heart beat. 
David heard Jonathan's last instruction. He kept his promise. Became a man after God's own heart. 
We should not forget where we come from. Jesus's promise is still alive. GO. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE LOCALLY. Charity begins at..... David looked for an opportunity. Give me an eye to see the people on the street. 
My identity does not depend on someone's inability to see. He was broken as a child and still broken as a man. 
God does not change depending on your location. That's not your final destination.
God needs to do something on the inside so people will see the change on the outside. 
In the king's eyes we are valuable. 
Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so. Shut up! It's simple. Your condition is not your conclusion. 
My condition is not my conclusion. 

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound. When you come to the table of the Lord your condition is behind you. 

Is there someone to bring to the party? 

The people that you meet when you walking down the street!
