THEME FOR 2014 - "TIRED? I WILL GIVE YOU REST" - JESUS. LDPBC KICKS OFF THEME

"Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest" Matthew 11:28 (NCV)

Wouldn't it be nice if on the first day of every new year all the things we want to change would really change? Bad habits - gone. Bad Credit - history. Stress - out of here. Marriage trouble - solved. Money worries - puff. Weariness - dissolved. Tiredness - no more. Anxiety - goodbye. Relational headaches - done. If only it were just that easy, unfortunatley even for  the most positive among us reality catches up all too soon. More often than not we drag ourselves into the next year.

The invitation of Jesus you read above speaks right into our caffeine driven culture filled with high stress, pressure, anxiety, worry, frustration, depression, crumbling families, dysfunction, and go, go, go. The words "rest" never sounded so good.

I happen to believe that when Jesus says something he really means it. He cares about all my life, both in the here and now and in eternity. If you are "Tired", if your load is crushing you, if you are looking for rest, for change, for peace maybe it is time for you to take up Jesus' invitation.

"Accept my teachings and learn from me, because I am gentle and hunble in spirit, and you will find rest for your lives (souls/psyches). The teaching that I ask you to accept is easy; the load I give you to carry is light" Matthew 11:29-30 (NCV, parenthesis mine)

I invite you to join is in 2014 to take Jesus at His Word.

To God be all the glory, love you, Pastor Hans

MARIPOSA YOUTH RALLY WAS A GREAT EVENT!!!

Our first Mariposa Youth Rally was great! Over 140 youth participated in games and fellowship together.  There were four youth that accepted Christ. The youth enjoyed  gathering together to listen to speakers and encourage each other in their faith.  They were reminded to keep each other accountable in their walk with Christ. We're looking forward to our next Mariposa Rally!

AMAZING GRAYS - 1950'S - 60'S NIGHT - A REAL BLAST FROM THE PAST

Friday night Oct 18th lots of the ladies were decked out in their poodle skirts and scarfs for that 50's-60's look. A trivia contest brought back memories of hula-hoops. potato heads, bomb shelters, Elvis, Purple people eater and lots more. It was a great evening, wonderful fellowship and as always terrific home cookin'. Elvis may still be in chiropractic care from trying to move those hips like he onced did but I hear he will recover. Check out more photos on the Amazing Grays Web Page.
