Greetings in the name of the Lord,

God wants to continue to do some great things in our lives, and in His church.  I was reminded recently by a comment from John Piper how this happens.  He writes, “One of the signs that God is going to do a great work is that he begins to stir up his people to pray for it. He lays a burden on a person here and a person there. He brings it back to their mind again and again. It stalks them. It drives them to their knees. Or it catches them on their knees.

When God aims to do a great work, the first thing he harnesses is the power of prayer. He starts by planting the spark of desire in a few hearts. Then through prayer he fans it into a flame. Then the flame of desire and faith spreads to others. Soon large numbers are on their knees imploring the great work. Then God acts. Then he pours down his blessing.”




Paul reminds us as well in Philippians 4:6-7“6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Are we praying?


Grace and Peace,

Pastor Jim

Children's Mission Retreat

Departing from Garden City, Kansas, forty-one children flew to Africa, Papua New Guinea and Mexico on 'AirNaz Airlines' on February 12. 




The flight crew, tour guides and sponsors helped children travel safely with passports, tickets and luggage to all countries where they learned how Jesus Christ is being shared through the Church of the Nazarene.  The overnight adventure was successful as no passengers were lost and fun was had by all. Thank you to all who attended and helped share with our District children how Missions is building relationships and sharing the Good News of Jesus.
