    EASTER : Mardi Gras - Ash Wednesday - Lenten Season

    EASTER : Christians celebrate Easter as the resurrection of Christ on the third day after His crucifixion. It is the oldest Christian holiday and the most important day of the church year because of the significance of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the events upon which Christianity is based (1 Corinthians 15:3-4,14). The four Gospels make it clear that Jesus was crucified in conjunction with the Jewish Passover (Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-15; John 18:28,39; 1...  Read More...

Beautiful Life Change Stories

One of the highlights of my life is being apart of Christ transformation life change stories!  We were privileged to see and hear things only God could do as we celebrated Sara Perez and Sherry Moody being baptized.

Sara has been taking lots of steps by faith... choosing to be intentional about growing closer in a relationship with the LORD... choosing to get married and follow God's direction for her family... and celebrating with us the grace she knows through public baptism.  The trials have been many... and difficult... but she pleaded with God to take control and she would just take the next right step!  I can still hear her say, "I'm ready!  I'm ready!"  Her husband and kids were so proud!

Sherry was surprised at how quickly she and her son found their place at Northshore Family.  Hearing her story, God has been drawing her unto Himself.  She wanted to be baptized as a symbol of the inward change and represent her personal commitment to grow closer to God.  After talking with me about what it means to be baptized, she was forced to answer the "why" questions all afternoon from her mom and sister.  Guess who came to see her and celebrate the faith that she knows in Christ!

After they were baptized, we prayed over them as a church family... so beautiful to see our children rush to the edge of the pool to pray!  After moments of silent prayer, Acts 4:13 was declared over them... "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus."  Bless the Lord!


Thank you church family for your investment in these ladies and their families.  I can't wait to see what God continues to do in their lives, their families, their areas of influence, and the generational impact of knowing Jesus Christ!
