“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works…” -Hebrews 10:24

When we gather to worship, we edify one another. Your presence speaks volumes. When you come to worship, you are saying, “The Lord is important in my life. You are important in my life.” May we have a love for one another that reaches out to others. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 5.19.2014

Sunday Evening| Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 23:14-29
And Jonathan, Saul’s son, rose and went to David at Horesh, and strengthened his hand in God. And he said to him, “Do not fear, for the hand of Saul my father shall not find you. You shall be king over Israel, and I shall be next to you…” -1 Samuel 23:16-17

Jonathan strengthened David’s hand in God. How did he encourage him? He shared the promises of God with David. The Word of God endures and is tried and true. Your faith is strengthened when you are in the Word of God. “Faith comes by hearing–and hearing by the Word of God.”
