Pastor Lorne and Dianne were at the PAOC conference last week. They met some of our missionaries and learned where our money goes when we allocate it to the mission field. It was especially heartening to hear about the successful water wells being drilled. Reports from the conference are located at the back of the church if you'd like further information.
Pastor Lorne's Mother's Day message was taken from John 19:26,27 which says, 'When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.'
Pastor Lorne said even in all His agony and pain, Jesus took time to think about the welfare of his mother and wanted to ensure she would be looked after when He was gone.
Exodus 20:12 says, '“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.'
Mothers take the education of their children seriously whether it's academic or spiritual.
In Joshua 24:14,15, Joshua says, 14 “Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. 15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
Pastor Lorne wants us to hang onto that with all our hearts. We will serve the Lord!
It is our powerful confession. "We will serve the Lord!"
