FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN

Home > News and Events > FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN

I have begun a season of prayer. Prayer for me personally for I want to draw closer to God. Closer than I have ever been before. The incredible part is that I can do that and God wants that too.

2 Chronicles 16:9 tells me that, “The eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts fully committed to Him.”

I am also looking for a group of people – prayer warriors – who will pray for me in this venture and who will join me in praying daily for the LebNaz Church and our leaders. Leading is a risky business. Pray that they will be protected from the evil one and that they too may draw close to God that we might lead the church well. Our mission is simple; to make Christ-like disciples. The process is simple…

1) Help people KNOW GOD: Follow Him, be like Him, walk in His

ways, love Him. We do this each week as we GATHER for Worship. 2) Help people FIND FREEDOM:

Connect with God and connect with others. Here we help people find a small group where they can GROW.

3) DISCOVER PURPOSE: Here we discover how God has gifted us, how He has created us, how we can fulfill His purpose for our lives.

4) PLAY A ROLE – MAKE A DIFFERENCE: We do

this by finding our place of service. We serve others in the church and those outside of the church.

We are in the Season of Lent. Lent is a season of preparation before Easter. A 40-day period of prayer, repentance, and preparation beginning on Ash Wednesday and leading up to Easter which is called Pascha (Greek, Latin) RESURRECTION SUNDAY!!!

April 12 we will be celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead after His crucifixion where He paid the price for MY SINS. Now, because He died and rose again, I am set free and cleansed from all my sins!!! Whooooohoooo! In these next few weeks I will be praying for the hearts of those who need to know Jesus, His forgiveness and for those who are by faith a part of His family but not attending a church. That you and I would join together to pray boldly and then GO and ASK them to join us for a GREAT EASTER SUNDAY CELEBRATION.
