Pastor's Desk

This week I thank God for His sustaining power which keeps us through the trials of life.
If you happen to be experiencing the storms of life remember this. Our Lord still has the power to calm the storm or calm you so that you can endure the storm!
As we are experiencing weather and life that have a constant range of highs and lows, I am reminded of the peace and strength that comes from serving a God who is unchanging. From day to day you may not know whether you will need heat or air conditioning. Some moments bring you to tears on the heels of great joy. One thing is for sure. Our Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever. I ask that you agree with me in faith that no matter what life brings, we will trust in the Lord!
This week we continue to pray for those who are affected by the record-setting government shutdown. It is not lost on me as we go into the season in which we culturally celebrate the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that his legacy calls us to speak up for the oppressed.

I Love you, aint a thang you can do about it!
We are beyond blessed to have the opportunity to see another week and should all take the time to stop and give thanks and praise to Christ for his unfailing love toward us in both the best and worst of times. I want to continue to emphasize the importance that each member of our church carefully and prayerfully consider their calling and commitment to the ministry as we march further into 2019.

God Loves You, Ain't a Thang You Can Do About It!
I specifically ask that you pray for myself and all of our ministry leaders that we be constantly in tune with His direction. I also ask that each of you pray for God's guidance in what direction you should take in contributing your time, talents and treasure to People's Community Church. No matter what your title, you play a critical role in His plans.

In 2019 God will still love you and there still aint a thang you can do about it!
Now is a great time to make peace with your yesterdays and look with faith and hope to the dawning of a new year.

I Love You, Aint a Thang You can Do About It!!
In all of your going and coming to gatherings and events. In all of your planning make sure that you have the perfect gift for everyone. Be sure that you have prepared a gift for when you encounter the Master!

God Loves You! Aint A Thang You Can Do About It!
I ask that our prayer focus for the rest of this year be on seeking God's will for our lives in 2019.
Whatever your situation, let us all take the time to seek God's will so that we can make ready for all that he has in store for us in the coming year.
I would like for us to have a prayer focus this week to be on two things. First, those in several cities in the Midwest which are facing significant financial fallout over the impending closures of automotive plants.

Next, let us pray that our local, state and national leaders find the moral courage to work for justice instead of power and engage the strength of our hopes rather than the shadow of our fears.
This week's prayer focus is that we would each make time for the self-care that we all need to remain as effective in ministry as possible. I am asking that each of us pray that God would compel us to meet the needs of our total selves; mind, body and spirit. These three areas require a balance of exercise, rest, sustenance and abstinence.
