March 24 – Lent III – God finds no pleasure in death (Ezekiel 33:11), whether of the wicked or of the innocent. Neither will we, particularly since He has delivered us instead into the position of watchmen for life (Ezekiel 33:7). We have responsibility for warning about the evils of abortion, embryo experiments, and physician-assisted suicide (Ezekiel 33:8). And we get the privilege of winning over hearts, rescuing eternities, and making brothers of neighbors (Ezekiel 33:14-16) by the Gospel of His unconditional love.

March 23 and 24, 2019

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.
