GOD'S GRACE

"Grace literally means that which we do not have to earn. It has two great senses always. It comes without charge, and it comes when we are helpless. Grace does not merely help the man who helps himself - that is not the Gospel. The Gospel is that God helps the man who cannot help himself." 
A. B. Simpson

VBS

What a great VBS! We enrolled 195 with an average attendance of 153. The church provided a free meal each night for those who attended. The meals were delicious. The youth and children all received free school supplies at the end of each night VBS. 

We learned how humankind was divided into different groups of people having their own language and culture. The most important lesson was the gospel. The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The students learned how Jesus Christ came to save every person who will repent and receive Him as their Lord and Savior. 

I especially want to thank all the teachers and workers who served during VBS. They taught their lessons and loved our guests. I am privileged and blessed to pastor such a wonderful group of believers. 

The real thanks and praise goes to the Lord. He is the one who blessed our school.  

If you would like to know more about our church, please call me at 540-365-2427. I would be glad to share the gospel with you.

In His grace,                                                                                                                                                                      Pastor Billy Shively

SAVED BY GRACE

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:8-10
