Happy Easter DBC Family,
Please join us tomorrow at 10:30 to worship our risen Lord and Savior! And if you would like, we will be having muffins and coffee beginning at 10 downstairs. Because this is a day we want to celebrate as families, the kids will be upstairs for the entire service. Jared will be giving a kid’s message about how the Resurrection brings life. And I will be explaining what Easter means to me. If you are unable to make it in person, we will have the service live-streaming on our website and will also be transmitting the service on FM 105.3. The difference this week will be that the livestream will start right when the service starts at 10:30.
See you soon!
Dear DBC Family,
This Sunday we will be looking at Acts 4:32-5:11 and specifically at the willingness of the early Church to give to one another. Rick will be giving the Communion thought and the kids will be downstairs for Youth for the Lord. I hope that you will be able to make it in person. And if you can’t, we will have the service live-streaming on our website around 10:45am like normal, as well as transmitting the service on FM 105.3.
Dear DBC Family,
We’ve been working our way through the book of Acts for the past several weeks at the Chapel and the passage that just “happens” to be next is an incredibly important one. I’m always amazed at how I prayerfully make a plan a long ways out, not knowing what we truly need to learn, and then God uses that to give us exactly what He wants us to learn at the exact time we need to learn it! So here’s what I’m talking about, how do you speak with boldness about Christ when society says that you should shut up and not talk? Peter and John had to figure out what they would do in the face of persecution. I believe that we as Western Christians will very soon be facing the very same question - Do we speak boldly for Christ or just be quiet.
I hope that you will be able to make it in person. And if you can’t, we will have the service live-streaming on our website around 10:45am like normal, as well as transmitting the service on FM 105.3.
Hello DBC Family,
Due to some issues, we won't be able to livestream the service today. We are very sorry about that. We will, however, be recording the audio from the service and I will post it shortly after the service is done today. The Chapel is still meeting in-person like normal, and the service will be broadcast on FM 105.3 if you would like to come to the parking lot to worship.
Today is a momentous day. It is January 20, 2021 and if we look at it as we do in America it is a palindrome date that can be read the same forward and backward - 1-20-21! The Farmers' Almanac notes that this is the very first Inauguration Day in American history that falls on a palindrome date. The next time that an Inauguration will happen on a palindrome date, we will be long gone because it won't be until January 20, 3021 (or 1-20-3021). That's 1000 years from now!!
I know for a fact that the President who was inaugurated today won't be around in 1000 years. And the President that left today won't be around in 1000 years. We humans are funny. We put our faith and hope so many times in people and things. We look to a leader to bring us safety and security and peace. But all of our leaders can't guarantee life. They can't guarantee peace. No, only the Leader of Creation, who WILL be around in 1000 years can guarantee life and peace.
Though we "crowned" a new President today, God is still on the throne and He will never be shaken. May the next Inauguration Day palindrome date be one we will all remember while celebrating in God's Kingdom!
To God be the Glory alone!
Dear DBC Family,
Thank you all so very much for being willing to be flexible this past Sunday. It is good to be able to worship in-person again at the Chapel this week. Andrew will be giving a Communion thought and I will be speaking about the Letter to the Church in Philadelphia (which is in modern-day Turkey, not the US city). The kids will be downstairs with Mr. Chuck once again for Youth for the Lord.
If you are unable to worship in person, we will have the service live-streaming on around 10:45am and also transmitting the service on FM 105.3 (if you would like to come to the parking lot and worship).
We take turns writing when God gives us an idea. The author will be noted.
