JUST ROLL THE STONE

John 11:39 (NIV)


“Take away the stone,” he said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”


How many times has Jesus asked us to do something and our first reaction is to balk? It is so much easier to come up with reasons not to talk to our neighbor about what Christ means to us. Excuses like; "They wouldn't understand." "I don't know the Bible well enough." It makes me feel uncomfortable." I never know what to say." All of these answers may be true...but so what?! Take a look in this story back in verse 15. When Jesus was told of Lazarus' death he said to his disciples; " I'm glad for YOUR sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe..." God loves to put us in places that make us uncomfortable. He loves to see us to roll the stone away from the grave when we are only thinking of ourselves. What we do then is the key. That is where growth happens. You can memorize the Bible...deny yourself every pleasure in life, never miss a church service or even work in the nursery for 40 years, but if you live your life perfecting your excuses not to roll away the stones, you will never understand the application of the love of God to you. Whatever stone God has put in your life...whatever challenge or mountain...Roll the stone and see what God can do! You will see a new deeper love and power of our Savior.

Upcoming Events

We are a family church with ministries for all ages, from birth to high school, as well as many Bible Studies and small groups geared towards adults. 


We desire to be a church that is a blessing to our community and we realize that blessing others and meeting the needs of our community is what we are here for. So in addition, we periodically host community events and family fun nights at our church, as well. 


We hope you'll join us at one of our upcoming events.
