! IMPORTANT NOTICE !
10/18/2019 UPDATE: Due to the construction timeline from the fire, we will NOT be meeting in our building for Sabbath services on October 19th. We received notice this week that cleanup efforts and subsequent construction will keep us from using our facility for worship services for at least the next 2 months. We are currently making arrangements for services to be held elsewhere and will release that information when it is finalized.
Please contact other members that may not use electronic/internet communications to make them aware this.

Message from Pastor Juanfer
I had a really good idea for this article...
I organized it, i dreamed it and i thought, maybe i should write the idea down. Like I said, I had a really good idea the other night and between thinking about the idea, organizing it in my head and going to sleep I forgot to write it down. Next morning I woke up, knowing I had a great idea, a great body… I just could not remember the actual idea.
Good intentions are like good ideas, they will amount to nothing unless something is done about them. Remember those new year resolutions, remember those good ideas to improve your finances, that family vacation you wanted to take, or that spiritual awakening you wanted to experience this year? Are they going to be good intentions/ideas or will they actually become a reality?
Proverbs 21:5 says, "the plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty". In everything that we do, we must move forward diligently, this is the way that we must persevere to the end. Understanding this will help be victorious in many aspects of life!
Then what happens when we fail? What happens when we made new year resolutions and then failed to follow through. We try again, again and again. Paul says it the best in Philippians 3:13-14, "…but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead". Every day we have a new opportunity to begin walking towards the place God has called us to walk.
See when we ask God to plan for us, we know that victory is ours. In verse 12 Paul says, "not that i have already attained, or am already perfected but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me… 14. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus".
We’ve reached August, and we have another opportunity to begin anew, to fulfill the plans God has laid in our hearts. To begin working daily to fulfill our greatest price which is in Jesus Christ. Now that i think about it, I have something better than a good idea, I have a daily opportunity to walk with Christ! To me that sounds like the best idea of all.
