When The Days Are Long And The Nights Are Short

When the days are long and the nights are Short, II Tim. 4:1-6, is my "go to" passage. I need strength beyond myself (v.1). I am reminded to keep making loyal followers of Jesus (v. 2). I am reminded that suffering is a part of being a soldier (v. 3). I am reminded to focus on pleasing Jesus (v. 4). I am reminded to remain discipline and follow God's rulebook (v. 5). And I am reminded to work hard like a farmer (v. 6). I trust you will find encouragement is these verses.

Here are a couple highlights. Please join the Police Forum this Tuesday 9/22/20, from 5:00 -7:00 pm. In this second forum, our Law Enforcement Leaders will focus on answering questions from the public. Mt. Zion Ontario and the Ontario Police Department are hosting this forum.
Go to: Mtzionontario.com/policefourm to submit your questions and join the forum.

I trust you are prayerfully considering reconnecting safely at our outdoor worship service each Sunday at 8:00 am.

God Bless,
Pastor Kennedy

Worry Weighs A Person Down...

 “Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up” (Prov. 12:25).

In worship service, you can get an encouraging word through the songs, the reading of scripture, prayer, fellowship with others, and the preached word. 

As you approach this weekends corporate worship service (outside or online) remember to celebrate The Lords keeping power throughout the ages.  Moreover, remember, The Lord will continue to keep us through the fires, COVID-19, racism, unemployment, economic concerns, death, sickness, violence, educational challenges, the presidential election, and on and on.  This weekend, let all of us worship God from our hearts so strong in person outside and online, that God is well pleased from start to finish.

 

God Bless,

Pastor Kennedy
