His Mission Church

Our Pastor has called us to a Fast

From sunset on Tuesdays through sunset on Wednesdays (24 hour period) Pastor Cathy has called her people to a time of Fasting and Prayer.  This is during the Lent season, Ash Wednesday (March 1st) is the start of Lent, which is a day of penitence or cleansing of the soul.  Jewish culture marks the days from sunset to sunset.  That is why Pastor Cathy has asked us to begin our Lent on Tuesday February 28th at sunset.  The evening of February 28th will be the beginning and it will conclude Wednesday evening April 12th.

What’s Lent?  Here’s a brief understanding: In essence, Lent is a time to give things up, for a greater purpose.

For Christians, this is a way to remember the time Jesus spent 40 days and nights alone in the Judaean desert, being tempted by Satan.   As Jesus fasted during this time, we identify with this state by giving up particular foods, or solid food altogether.  There is also the giving up of electronics and vices such as smoking-drinking-swearing.  We exchange the time spent on these things to pray to God.  As we get further along in the Lent season we may find we are relying fully on God to help us maintain our commitment to Him in the fast.

This is a time to reflect on what Christ has done for us, where we are in our relationship with him, and to PRAY!  Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ.  We have had a lot of our own who have fallen ill.  There are friends and family who are struggling and those in desperate need.  Pray for our church, pray for our pastor and her husband.  Pray for our nation.  Pray for YOUR family.  Pray for YOUR encouragement and to want more of Christ Jesus.

1 John 5:14-15 tells us; “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us:And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we desired of him.”.   According to His will…this is where we exercise “less of me and more of you oh Lord!”.

Youth Fundraiser

The Youth Group is holding a good old fashion SPAGHETTI DINNER FUNDRAISER to help with their expenses to the Creation Museum.

The Fundraiser will be SATURDAY, MARCH 18th from 5pm-7pm.

All You Can Eat: Salad, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Garlic Bread, and Warm Brownies for dessert!  Tea and Lemonade will be on hand to wash it all down.

There will also be a “SPA THEMED BASKET” Raffle.

If you are unable to attend, please consider making a donation to help the kids with cost of the trip as they will need to offset an average of $50 each.

UPDATE on Museum Trip

There has been such a surprising interest in those wanting to do the combo-overnight to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter that we need to push the reply date up. Please conact Connie Cox by THIS Sunday, 26th if you’re interested in the overnight trip.  It’s going to take more time to find a place where we will all have rooms in the same hotel. – NOTE: if you do not receive a reply from her, she did not get your message.

Price info for Creation Museum Trip

This is to help you plan what would work best for you or your family.

Remember, we’ll need to have a headcount by March 1st and payment by March 7th.

We’re still waiting to see how many want to do the over-night Combo to look into hotels.

Creation Museum Trip for all

Since this trip was wildly popular, we have opened the invitation to everyone to join the Youth Group.

We are still working out the details, but the options thus far are:

There are those who’d like to visit the Creation Museum AND the new Ark Encounter.  (These take a full-day each.)  They’ll be going to the Ark Encounter on Friday March 31st and staying overnight to go to the Creation Museum with the rest of the group on Saturday.

If you and/or your family would be interested in attending we will need a headcount by MARCH 1st and payment by March 7th.
