Good Morning Church Family!
We pray everyone is doing well!
Sunday Morning Services
PCC is excited about the future God has planned for Lebanon Mennonite Church. We believe that we are a church established for “such a time as this” and have a special opportunity to reach our community for Christ as we look forward to the New Year.
Please continue to pray over Lebanon Mennonite Church as we welcome many new speakers on Sunday mornings. This coming Sunday Phil Baker will be delivering the message. Phil is the son of Mike and Patty Baker. Please keep him in your prayers as he prepares his message, and be ready to receive!
God consistently provides in the area of Sunday morning speakers, and it has been a blessing to hear God’s word from new voices. Thank you to everyone who continues to Participate in the Sunday morning worship services. The foundation and trust that we are building with each other, as we continue to break new ground in technology, sound, and video capabilities has been a wonderful experience for all of us! God is so faithful to provide our church with everything we need through the talents and gifts of our very own church members! Thank You!
Many times we can misinterpret, or have never heard a message on the true definition of what God designed the Tithe to be. Tithing is an act of worship exclusively between you and the Heavenly Father. It is an act that God instructs us to “test Him in” and see that He will send a blessing upon us that “we will not be able to contain” (Malachi 3:10). The tithe demonstrates our Love to God through our obedience to Him with our finances, and he promises that we will be blessed. Jesus said to “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what belongs to God” (Mark 12:17)
It also says “God loves a cheerful Giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7). Giving should be a part of our lives that is pleasing to God, and Not something we do out of compulsion. Therefore, pray over your tithe before you give, and give what you have set in your heart to give. Tithing is about the Heart. Remember what Jesus said about the widow's mite - She gave from her heart (Luke 21: 1-4). Thank you for your tithing so we can continue the work of the Lord through Lebanon Mennonite Church!
Lent & Easter
Please look for Lent information in the near future. Vicki Williams is diligently reviewing readings and activities for our families and children to enjoy from home. Thank you Vicki for all of your hard work! Also, please contact Vicki Williams, or a PCC team member, if you would like to participate, or help, with our Easter Service on Sunday, April 4th. Thank you!
Prayer on Sunday evenings at 5pm, and Wednesday mornings at 9am, continue to grow. Please join us in praying for our church members, city, leaders, direction and wisdom for our church. This continues to be an exciting time. Thank you for praying!
"God gives life to the dead, and calls those things that are not, as though they already exist" (Romans 4:17). God was talking about Abraham becoming a father of many nations even though he was older in age. Abraham chose to believe God, and it was "credited to him as righteousness" (Romans 4:22).
We believe that God has great plans for Lebanon Mennonite Church! We may not physically see those things with our natural eyes, but we believe that God is working through our prayers to use our church for his glory. Amen! Thank you everyone for your support and prayers!
