    Will we choose to make time for Jesus in the busyness of this life? In this message Jesus reminds us of the one thing worth being concerned about in this life. A thing that will not be taken away from us. Are you serving from an empty reservoir? Consider making it a habit to create space for being still in God's presence so He can fill you up on a regular basis.

    Sharing Christ with our friends and loved ones can often seem like an overwhelming task all in itself. With this message we explore the book of Jonah and wrestle with the challenge to share with people we don't like, even our enemies. "The Lord is a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love" (Jonah 4:2).

    Luke 15:3-7, Luke 18:24-25, Luke 19:1-10
    Salvation does not come from what we are able to do or how much we have, it is by faith in Christ alone. Jesus came to seek and save the Lost and he wants to use His church to represent Him in the same way.

    Better Together – Part 4 “Impacting The World”
    Matthew 28:16-20, Acts 1:5-8, and Philippians 4:10-20
    On this 1st day of May we celebrated the ordinances of The Lord's Supper and Baptism together as a church family. The introduction for our  message was the baptisms of Teagan Bird, Macy Nolan and Shelly Bloomer. Unfortunately that portion of our service was not recorded. However, we have included the video testimonies of those who were baptized. The message that followed was a brief reminder that we are called to be a church that both sends, partners with and supports God's mission for us to reach the world with His love.  Ten and a half percent of all offerings received at Community Bible Church are used outside our church walls to support this effort. We are Better Together, and that includes those who the Lord has called to serve him in hard to reach places.

    Better Together – Part 3 – Serving in Our Community
    Galatians 5:13-14 and Matthew 5:14-16
    Christ followers are called to be a light in the world. At Community we believe everyone should use their gifts within the church, but not so much so that they are not also actively bringing God's light to a world in need. Where might God want you to volunteer and show His love in your community?

    The Life of Jesus – Part 9 (Mark 11-14)
    In this message we explore what it means to seek the Lord's will in prayer. Jesus prays in the way in the garden the night he was betrayed. If we hope to lay aside our selfish ways and put others before ourselves we must be people of prayer as well.
