Sermon 08/15/2021

This Morning Pastor Chris continues his series looking at the beattiutudes where we look at how happiness should not come from our outside circumstances but rather how God forms us to live on the inside. We will find true happiniess and joy in the Lord before all other things. This week in particular we look at peace and persecution and how happiness can still happen in the midst of these things!
We here at First Presbyterian Church would love to pray for you! If you have any prayer requests please message us anytime!

We are continually bombarded by confusing and contradictory messages by our leaders and the mainstream media. However, we have the one weapon available to us that can defeat them all… PRAYER!

IT IS TIME TO BE BOLD. It is time to pray that the fear and misinformation surrounding our lives and our nation will be replaced with the hope and truth of the Gospel.

ARE YOU READY? It is time for The Church to use this weapon of prayer to defeat the enemy of darkness.

OUR NEXT BIG BATTLE will be to unseat those in leadership who are driven only by self-interest and power. It is time for us to rise as a united body of believers and elect righteous people to our local and national offices in 2022.

It is time for radical believers to pray radical prayers!

Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." –John 14:6 NLT #VerseOfTheDay #Scripture

You don't have to be and shouldn't be hyper-critical. Your yes should be yes and your no should be no. We'd all be better off scrutinizing the agendas of others less and seeking God's approval in relation to our agendas more...

Let your yes mean yes, and your no mean no. Anything more than this comes from the evil one. ~ Matthew 5:37

Sermon 07/25/2021

This morning, Pastor Chris Carlson, looks at Daniel 7 and talks about how we need to continue to trust God even when the future is unclear to us. God's plan will not always be made known to us but we need to remember who He is and how great He is! Let us remember the great God we serve and always trust in Him!
If you need any prayer we would love to pray for you! Feel free to message us any time!

"I took Stella to Chick-fil-A today. It's our normal daddy/daughter spot. It's clean, so good, and the playground has a tractor beam on her the moment she sees it. When we finished eating and she'd worked up her dessert appetite playing with the other kids, we went back to trade in her toy for ice cream. She wanted to sit at a table to eat the cone (something we usually do in the truck), and I'm so glad she did. We took a booth right next to the spot where you wait for your drink to be "refreshed," and we had a front row seat to this beautiful scene: a homeless traveler had walked in and asked if they had any extra food. Mud was wet and caked on his well-traveled shoes. His hair was matted, and his beard wasn't a statement as much as it was a necessity and a sign that he doesn't get to shave as often as most of us do. People near him kept their distance, but that didn't stop him from being kind. He spoke to people who reluctantly spoke back, and he smiled while he waited on a manager. All I could pick up on of the conversation was the manager saying that he'd love to give him a full, warm meal--not just scraps or extras--, and the only thing he required was that the man let him pray with him.

After the homeless man agreed, there was no waiting for things to die down, there was no scooting anyone to the side. As busy as they were, the manager stopped then and there, laid his hand on the man, and proceeded to pray. I heard love in that prayer. The homeless man wasn't some untouchable stain on business. He was the reason that store opened its doors this morning (or any morning). I asked Stella to watch and she stared. She asked what was happening and when I told her, she bowed her head, too. I realized then and there that Chick-fil-A doesn't simply do business for profits, they truly use business to minister. In a time when companies are trying to win in the market by neutralizing any possibility of offense, CFA is thriving because they unwaveringly cling to their principles and purpose. I love teaching my daughter life lessons, and I also love being there to watch other Christians teach her life lessons. Thank you, Chick-fil-A, for taking care of the latter today."
