  • It is good to be back home this week. I want to give a shout out to the guys and gals that have been helping to get the new site in shape. I just want to say Thank You.
  • The ladies had a great time at this past weekend’s Ladies Retreat. I never cease to be amazed at how the Lord is working in our midst. I am excited for the days ahead as we can now do more ministry like this.
  • AWANA is rolling now for those with grade school age children each Sunday 5:30-7:30 PM in the new MC. Please contact Pastor Berney with any questions.
  • I am still needing help to sell many items that are no longer needed. We are looking for someone with experience on Ebay, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist or _____ to help us. If you are able to help, please contact Pastor Joe.
  • Let me encourage you to join us in prayer on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. It is a time for us to seek the Lord’s face for the ministry he has given us in Port Orchard.  
  • We have two Men’s groups that are meeting. Pastor Berney leads a Thursday Evening group 7:00 pm at the church studying the Minor Prophets. Pastor Joe’s Thursday Men’s daytime group will not be meeting for the next three weeks.
  • Six-8 Youth Jr high meets on Sundays 5:30-7:30pm at the Church Office. The Sr High is meeting on Fridays 6:30-8:30pm also at the Church Office. Please contact Pastor Zac for more information.
  • Our Monthly Memory Verse for  May 2021 is one that all of us should know and practice. It is a testimony about the Priest and Teacher Ezra. I like the middle phrase “and do it.”  “For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the LORD, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.” Ezra 7:10 ESV  If you struggle with memorizing or even consistency, let me encourage you to check out the Bible Memory App. (IOS and Android)
  • This week we will be moving into Philippians 3. Paul focuses on the priority of Grace over works in verses 1-11. The challenge with a works approach to religion is that it produces a self-righteousness attitude in us. We can never be other-centered until our lives become grace immersed. Part of “Living Above the Noise” is to “Grow by Grace not by Works”. I do appreciate your prayers for me as I prepare for this Sunday. Also pray that the Lord would work in hearts.
