Tonight’s lesson kicked off our series with visiting preacher, Melvin Curry. Melvin works and worships with a congregation of saints in Crystal River, FL.

Continuing in our Beatitudes series, Nate speaks this evening on being merciful to others.
Taken from Psalm 91, Nate speaks this evening on the protection that God provides to those who are His. With God, we can face anything! Without God, we are beaten before we even get started.
Serving God and serving others. Chris talks this morning about this important topic. Christ gave us a perfect example of what it looks like to serve other people. There is natural joy that comes from this selfless act!
Chris talks this evening about the importance of maturing spiritually. Have you developed your own faith in God? or are you still hanging on the coattails of your parents?
How bad do you want the spiritual things of God? Reading His word, being with His people, spending time with Him in prayer… “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
Chris spoke this morning on the way we should be walking in the Lord. Humiliation is healthy for us everyone in a while so we can stay humble. It’s humility that seems to breed kindness, because then we understand what others are going through so we can be empathetic and forgiving.
One of the members of the congregation, Jamie Reynolds, spoke this evening from Psalm 33. Psalm 33 is a beautiful display of the power of God in Creation, the control of God in the affairs of men, and the intimate nature He has with each one of us.
One of our members, Wes Peters, spoke this evening on Biblical principles taken from his favorite sport: football. What are you doing with your Bills? Are you a Steeler of God’s time? Are you a pew Packer? Are you facing the Giants with God on your side? Have you become a Saint?
