Since, we have now recovered from the Michigan hurricane that hit us this week, we can, now, get out the rakes and begin our fall clean-up. Of course, that means that there is something peeking its head around the corner. I believe that they callit winter!! Now, that I have either encouraged or discouraged you, let me welcome you today! This weekend was our Mission's Weekend celebration time and we were so honored to have Rev. Malcolm Burleigh with us yesterday.  Malcolm is the Director of Intercultural Ministries with the Assemblies of God and came to challenge all of us to be a part of missions. We are a mission's giving church and our heart is to be a part of reaching this world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to encourage every person to make a mission's faith promise in support of missions for the coming year. I challenge you to let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart. Then, in faith, make a financial promise believing that the Lord will fulfill that promise through you. I am be3lieving for the greatest mission's giving year in 2012 that we ever had in the history of this church. So, listen to the challenge from Malcolm Burleigh and join together with others, as we make First Assembly, a world outreach church. I sure do love you all and pray god's richest blessings on your life!

It Seams as though we have been on the barbecue grill of life the last few days.  I feel like I am  about medium-rare now, so it's time to get me off of the grill.  In case, you are not following my way of thinking right now, I am talking about the 95 plus degree weather that we have been having in Michigan.  I know for those of you that like it hot, this is wonderful.  But, for those of us who feel that perfect weather is 80 degrees with low hunidity, this is way overbearing.  Enough about the weather because it is out of any of our control and we leave all things in the hands of our Father, God.  In fact, I love Him whether it is hot or cold and thank Him that He gives me the opportunity to live on this great planet.  But, one of these days, those of us who are looking for Jesus' return, are going to take our journey out of this world into the presence of God forever.  I am looking forward to that day, Sunday I shared why I believe we are nearing 'the end of time' on this earth.  As the world continues its allurement and puts its demands on our time, there is a call by the Holy Spirit to draw near to God.  I gave reasons why we need to get ourselves ready for Jesus' return, so listen to the Word of God from Sunday's message and let it speak into your life.

Father's Day is the best time to offer your deepest gratitude and love for your father.  Everyone has their own unique way of expressing love to their dad on this special day.  Some might bake a cake while others might arrange a surprise party.  Even little gestures of love can mean the world to your dad.  Fathers were uniquely created.  They are a source of strength and support, are always ready to help us in our times of need, they encourage us and forgive us and love us unconditionally.  So, dad, for all that you are and for all that you do, we say thank you and we love you!  You do not go unnoticed or unappreciated!  We love you all!

Mothers are a true blessing of God in human form.  Having a mother is probably one of God’s greatest gifts in our lives.  It’s her love that helps make us strong, her care that helps prepare us to face the world, her hands that help us overcome all the trying times of life.  Yet, what do we give back to her?  It’s Mother’s Day!  Today, take  yourself through a brief trip down memory lane.  Recall the blessings that made you what you are.  One of those blessings is your mom.  Recall the pains she helped bare for you, the sacrifices she made in bringing you up, and give her back the same love that she showered on you.  Realize the value of a mom and treat them with love, respect and care while they are still here to receive it.  Share in the spirit of Mother’s Day and give “thanks” where thanks is due.  We love you all and we wish you a Happy Mother’s Day!

What a great day to be in the House of God!! Our Father always proves Himself faithful to us. When all the world seems to be rocking and reeling with earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars and government  shutdowns, it  is  good  to  know  that  we  can  rest secure in His hands. There is no life that I want to live than for Jesus. In the despair of the world affairs, I want to know that there is a refuge in which I can feel safe and sheltered by His presence.  I  am  continuing  our  study  on  the  life  of Joseph, the dreamer. I have found that if we look closely enough, we will find in the life of Joseph, a message that will apply to our lives. Joseph went from his father’s favor to the bottom of a pit in order for him to end up exactly where God wanted him to be in his life. As for me, I want to avoid all of the pits I can, but when I am in a pit, I know on whom I can call. Could that be the reason for pits?

Why doesn't the work dwindle if I'm busy all day every day? Have you ever noticed the more you do, the more you need to do? What is that? Sometimes I call it being productive. Other times I call it tiring. But there's one thing I always call it...an honor! Remember the days when you didn't know what you were going to do next? Maybe, that's the spot you're in today! If you are, just put one foot in front of the other and do everything you can in the moment you're in. You'll get the benefits if you don't give up! After a productive and busy last 2 weeks at church, people struggling with colds that seem to hang on, and then just living the busy life we do, we must consciously choose to find the hope and promises of God! It's a place of being productive and tired and honored all at the same time. Remember there is a Hope and Giver of Hope and that is Jesus Christ. Keep in mind as you go about your day that God deserves first place!

  Happy New Year!!! It is almost impossible for me to believe that we have just finished the first decade of this 21st century.  Yesterday, we entered into another decade of time, along with all  its  opportunities  to  carry  this  wonderful message of salvation and hope. There is a whole world of people looking for answers and anticipating that there is a savior. They just don’t know or haven’t heard that the Savior, Jesus Christ, has already come and has told them that whosoever would, may come to Him. In Him, they will find rest and hope, along with relief  from  their  burdens. You  may  have  stepped  into  this building today carrying a heavy burden. I want you to know that Jesus Christ is here to meet you and to lift that weight off of your life.  My dear church family, hear me, we  are  about  to  embark  on  the  greatest  days  of  our  lives. It  is  so  exciting to know that God has great things planned for us.  All He is waiting for, is for us to step forth, trust Him, and begin to walk out our destiny in Him. Join me in this great journey into the 2nd decade of the 21st century!! Pat and I love you.Pastor Dan

  Merry Christmas and an early Happy New Year wish to each and every one of you!  I pray that your Christmas was a special time for you and that you enjoyed your time together as family.  I love Christmas and I especially, love the food.  So, for me, I just want you to know that I had a good time eating all kinds of goodies.  Now, we look forward to the New Year and all that the Lord has in store for us.  It is exciting and challenging to know that God has great things He wants to do through us in this coming year.  I have a feeling that God is about to release His church around the world to do great exploits and to venture into territory that we have never possessed before in our lives.  So, I want you to prepare your heart by joining in the two week fast that begins on January 10th through the 23rd.  Let the Holy Spirit free, inside of your life, so that He can prepare you to do what seems to be impossible.  Let me say a big “thank you” to all of you that gave to make Thanksgiving a special time for families in our community.  Also, for giving to buy bikes that absolutely made Christmas a time of joy for both kids and adults.  You are an awesome church body and Pat and I extend our love to you!!!!!!!
