Sunday's Message, December 4, 2016
"Sing A Love Song To God"


This Sunday we’ll light the Second Advent Candle announcing Christ’s coming.  It’s the Love Candle.  I’ll be preaching from Luke 1:46-55 as Mary sings about God’s love.  The sermon is entitled, “Sing a Love Song to God.”

Christmas is a great time to sing love songs to God! 

You can hear them in the stores and in the eager voices of carolers.  I love to sing to God everywhere I go.  But there’s no better place to sing love songs to God than in church!  Join us as we sing to him and as we learn about the beauty of singing to him throughout the day.  A love song to God will drive the blues away and it will make God happy.  How do I know that?  Because when the young David sang love songs to God, the Lord called him a man after his own heart!

We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper this Sunday.  Israel sang as it celebrated Passover.  This Sunday we will sing to the Passover Lamb who is worthy of our songs!

With Love In Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek

Sacramento, CA 95821
December 4
6 pm


As a Senior Pastor for over two decades, Daniel Henderson brought prayer-based revitalization to several mega-churches.

Today he is dedicating his full-time efforts to help congregations across the country experience renewal and turn-around as he speaks to thousands each year at conferences and prayer events.

He is President of Strategic Renewal, which exists to ignite personal renewal, congregational revival, and leadership restoration for Christ’s glory.

Help us welcome Daniel Henderson Sunday, Dec 4th for an evening of renewal & prayer.
Many from our surrounding community will be joining us for this time. 

Daniel has been with us twice before and has led an awesome service each time.  Don't miss this opportunity to join with others in a time of concerted prayer.

I hope we'll be good hosts by showing our support.

We will have some light refreshments in the foyer for before and after the service.  Prepare to fellowship with believers from other churches in our community.

Church Business Meeting

Sunday, December 11
6:00 pm

You Do Not Want to Miss This! Come for an evening of celebration as we conduct business for our Lord in preparation for the new year. Our desire is to honor God in our plans and since we are the Body of Christ, each and every one of us is important to the work and ministry of our church. Your participation counts, so make plans to attend.

After our business session we will have a time of fellowship. Come with your favorite holiday dessert to share.

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Philippians 2:1-2

Make my joy complete and join us
