Our Mission

 

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Our church offers prayers for servicemen and women at every Morning Prayer or Evening Prayer service.

In Time of Great Sickness

and Mortality

(BCP p. 45)

O MOST mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succour. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For Christian Service

(BCP P. 43)

  O LORD our heavenly Father, whose blessed Son came not to be ministered unto, but to minister; We beseech thee to bless all who, following in his steps, give themselves to the service of their fellow men. Endue them with wisdom, patience, and courage, that they may strengthen the weak and raise up those who fall; and, being inspired by thy love, may worthily minister in thy Name to the suffering, the friendless, and the needy; for the sake of him who laid down his life for us, the same thy Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen

Prayer For Our Police

  Almighty God, we beseech thee to pour thy blessing upon our country's police. Strengthen and protect them in all danger. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

This Week's

Sermon

Trinity VIII

  "Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car."

— Billy Sunday

 

   Today I want to talk about why, and how, we should be worshiping God together each week.

 

Psalm 84:2 “My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.”

 

 

   When many people think of a church service may think of it in terms of people doing a service for God. In reality though, in a Christian worship service, God is the “giver”.

 

   In true Christian worship God's Holy Spirit reaches into our lives and into our souls. Like the writer of today's psalm we should come into God's house, not because we want to impress God or others, but because we are willing to accept the gift of the Holy Spirit that God offers us.

 

   Even before the covid-19 illness there were unfortunately many things that can keep us from worshiping God as we should. There are more and more things that take place on Sundays in recent years that seem to keep people from entering “into the courts of the Lord”.

 

   Even when we do come to church worship we need to be careful not to let feelings of self-satisfaction with having “made it”, or fears of becoming “too involved” keep us from receiving the full blessings of His Grace.

 

   Saint Paul in his Epistle to the Galatians 5th Chapter 17th verse tells them, (and us today as well):

“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other; so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”

 

   During the whole course of our lives we are in this struggle as Christians. We must continue to fight against not doing our duty to worship each week, because we need that blessing of the Holy Spirit we receive in His worship.

 

   Christians through faith in Jesus Christ, are “children of God” and “heirs of heaven” and our thankfulness for that, should bring us rejoicing into the “courts of the Lord” at least each week.
