February 22, 2021

Please take a moment to sign up if you plan to join us for IN-PERSON worship or in the PARKING LOT at our new worship hall, located at 2150 Paxton Dr., Lilburn, Georgia, 30047.

We'll also be ONLINE at 10:30 a.m. for those who prefer to worship at home.

A word from Art
It can be helpful to prepare ourselves before diving into God's Word
Title: How to study the Bible, Tutorial 2
Scripture: Matthew 22:39

As the old adage goes, “If we fail to plan, we plan to fail.” Not sure we can “FAIL” when it comes to reading God’s Word, but we can prepare our mind, body and spirit to be in the right place so that we can hear from God as we read His word. This Sunday, we will unpack how to read and study God's Word.
Kingdom Kids
The First Commandment
You Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me

God established His authority with the children of Israel when He rescued them from the Egyptians. Coming out of Egypt, the Israelites must have considered monotheism (worshipping one god) a rather radical concept. The Egyptians worshipped many deities.  
 
As the world shrinks and our darling children will bump into various religions and humanists - all being disguised as diversity. God doesn’t stand for it. He says, “I am the Lord, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:1:18b).
 
This week’s lesson seeks to equip our darling children with spiritual detectors
as they walk through a new era of potential pitfalls. The children will discover that out of the profusion of beliefs, idols, and religious practices, God stands alone as worthy to be worshipped.
Angel Sightings . . .
Almost every Sunday, two angels appear in the Children’s Worship (known as the Upper Room!) to see if I need any help. I never asked them; they just appeared. They served in “Footsteps” when we met elsewhere, so they know what is involved and share in the joys of serving our darling children. Many times they stay and worship with us. I love them dearly for their sweet, servant’s hearts. Thank you, Raven and Jared!
