Inclement Weather Policy
In the event of a closing or delayed opening due to inclement weather or another type of emergency, an announcement will be placed on the church website as well as you will be notified by text, email and phone calls.
A determination of our worship services and activities will be made and communicated as expeditiously as possible. The goal is to make a determination by late Saturday evening or by 5:00 AM for our Sunday Worship Services and by 2:00 PM for any evening activities. Please understand that there will be circumstances that make these timelines unrealistic.
As a rule of thumb if public schools are dismissed early, all evening activities will be canceled. If schools are closed for the day, all activities will be canceled for that day.
Following the Call of God Upon Your Life
Sub Topic: Random Chance or Sovereignty of God.
Romans 9:20 But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” 21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?
You need to know of a certainty that you are not simply here by some accident or by some plan or unplanned pregnancy on the part of your parents. God formed you for His exact purpose. As He said to Jeremiah
Jeremiah 1:5 before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.
Some Christians say “Yea but that was about Jeremiah” beloved God says something even greater about you. What, you may ask, where is that at?
Ephesians 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will. This is fantabulous news, we are not only chosen but this text makes it clear that we were chosen for honorable purposes. Man this is surely something that you should meditate on daily! How good can news get? Could anything be said more wonderful than this? If you’re born again, you were chosen by God before the world began,
This is why you should follow the call of God upon your life, because He has chosen you for a very glorious purpose. You must get this before you can truly fulfill your call. The Sovereignty of Almighty God has not only chosen you, but He did so before the world began.
Why are you here? First every Christian should by now know God has them here to bring Him glory and to worship Him. However you need to seek God to find out His specific calling upon your life. Here is where true and lasting fulfillment is. This lesson today is to point out with clarity that you are a sovereign act of Almighty God and not some random chance or slip of the pill. Guess what, God has appointed you!
