This Week | March 3-9, 2023
March 5 | Genesis – Part 23 (Genesis 24:1-67): Letting God Write Your Love Story
One of the most important decisions in your life is who you marry. In Genesis 24 we get an intimate look at the beginning of an amazing marriage in the Bible. It is the love story of Isaac and Rebekah. The Lord is working in their everyday lives to orchestrate His plan. It shows us how to trust and look to the Lord for our relationships, especially our marriages. We will see how to build our relationships on God and keep Christ the center. We do this through prayer, selfless love, having a godly community, and acting by faith.
Genesis 21:6 – Genesis 24:67 – Then Isaac brought her into the tent of Sarah his mother and took Rebekah, and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.

IMPORTANT! NEW SERVICE TIMES STARTING ON MARCH 12TH!!
With the amazing growth we are seeing as a church, we’ve had to really think through how to move forward to fit everyone here on a Sunday morning. Concluding that we will soon have to add a third Sunday service, we are taking the first step towards that by moving our two current services to 9:30am and 11:30am starting March 12th. That will leave room to then add an 8am service sometime between Easter and the fall of this year, but for now, what you need to know is that starting March 12th, our two services will be at 9:30 and 11:30am!
WOMEN’S PRAYER GATHERING | FRIDAY, 3/10 AT 6:30PM
Let’s be a part of what God is doing right now! Lakes women, join us for a powerful time of prayer!
NEXT BAPTISM | EASTER SUNDAY, 4/9
Baptism is the natural next step once we are saved! It represents the new life that Jesus’ resurrection gives us and is a public sign of our faith in Christ. If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, we invite you to take this opportunity to demonstrate your faith in Christ.
We will have an opportunity to get baptized at one of our services on Easter Sunday, April 9th. What a way to celebrate the resurrection of Christ!!
EASTER SUNDAY, 4/9 | 7:30, 9:30 or 11:30AM
This year we will have THREE services, and we can’t wait to celebrate with each of you at one of them! Join us at 7:30am, 9:30am or 11:30AM, with Early Childhood care (birth-4) available in the 7:30 and full Lakes Children programming available in the 9:30 and 11:30!
We will also have baptisms at all services on Easter. Please fill out this form to let pastor Mark know if you are interested in getting baptized!
