This weekend, we are starting a brand new series on thankfulness and how God has blessed us. In this first message, we will be looking at the story of Joseph and his brothers. God’s plan is perfect, and although he suffered, Joseph held onto that truth. In this weekend’s message, we will learn to be thankful for “HIS PLAN.”
In this sermon we will meet an outcast and outspoken woman who is thirsty for eternal life. Jesus comes to meet her at the well and shows her the well of eternal springs. Do you know people like the Samaritan woman?
Between John 3-5 we see Jesus interacting with four different individuals with different personalities and hang-ups. Instead of getting frustrated or defensive with them, He responded to them with wisdom and compassion. As a result, each of them found eternal life.
In the fifth message in the series on anxiety, Jesus tells us to look at our Heavenly Father’s provision for the birds of the air and the lilies of the field. If He can take care of their needs, will He not take care of the needs of His children? Of course He will! Our task is to make sure that we “seek His kingdom and His righteousness.”
This week the focus is on Prayer. Again, Jesus warns His disciples not to make prayer a time of spiritual show. Instead, they should pray in secret to their Heavenly Father. In turn, He will not only approve our prayers but also blesses us before all.

THERE’S ONLY ONE WHO WILL DISCIPLINE AND DELIVER People, when they are going through a difficult time, will say something like “maybe God is punishing me for all the bad I have done” or “I’m getting what I deserve.” Listen carefully: God never punishes His children.
