In His Praise — June 7, 2020

Welcome to “In His Praise”

The good news from East Point C.P. Church today is that we are alive and doing well. Covid-19 may have kept our doors closed for awhile, but praise be to God, in person church services began again 3 weeks ago and the Lord just keeps on blessing.

 Things are not completely back to normal yet – we still try to practice social distancing, use hand sanitizer, and make masks available. There’s not much handshaking or hugging, but members are happy to be together. The choir is not in the choir loft, but the congregation sings with joy and thanksgiving. Rev. Nickles is bringing great messages from the Lord and attendance is increasing each Sunday. 

We really don’t know how long these safety precautions will be in place, but we do know that God is good and He is working in mighty ways to bring people to Him. He has opened new avenues from which to share the gospel. He has moved people to come to church that have not been before and people have a new zeal about serving the Lord.

The blessings just keep being poured out upon us!

As we continue on during this troublesome time, let our prayer always be “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen” Ephesians 3:20-21.

In His Praise — November 24, 2019

This week most of us will celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a time we gather with our family and friends and hopefully focus on our many blessings. But one day is not enough to remember all the blessings that we receive from our Heavenly Father. Of course, we should be grateful everyday. 

Today Rev. Nickles shared a message about gratitude. He read scripture from Chronicles 16:34, Luke 17:11-19 and Philippians  4:11 that teach us that gratitude is an attitude. As children of God we are highly favored and blessed in so many ways that we lose count of all that we receive. We have a loving Father that cares for us, a Savior that died for us, and the Holy Spirit to guide us. 

Trials still come our way,  but knowing that we have victory through Jesus Christ is a blessing that we can be thankful for everyday. Showing our gratitude in our actions is one way to say thank you to our Lord.
