Doing Life Together - by Bryan johnston

     Our Life Group ministry will be starting September 10! Our groups meet on Sunday evenings in homes and at the building from September thru May. It is essential to our growth and maturity that we have opportunities to share our love for God and love for one another. Life Groups provide members a setting to grow as disciples of Christ and to minister one to another. We will share in God’s word and discuss the morning sermon. We will share our lives with each other, providing opportunity to be encouraged and mentored in our walk with Christ. Life Groups provide a place for each one to use their gifts to edify and build up the body of Christ. As we are built up our love overflows into serving the world and growing the kingdom of God.

We grow closer as the body of Christ through our involvement in these groups. We become unified in our faith and partner together in ministry one to another. Our Life Groups truly become a group of believers with whom we “do” life with. Be encouraged to spend time serving others with your group time. You don’t have to spend every Life Group in bible study. You are free to join together to visit shut-ins, clean a neighbor’s yard, haul wood, or to provide resources to the homeless, just to name some examples. Your group should be the first responders to members in your group when one is sick, needs meals, needs help, or needs encouragement. Be sure to “show up” in each other’s lives. You will be blessed to spend time playing together – have a game night, plan a hike or picnic, go to Shore Acres, go to dinner or coffee, attend a game, concert, or play together. “Do” life together! Finally Life Groups provide a wonderful place to invite neighbors, friends, and visitors to experience Jesus and his church. What makes Life Groups great is you!

Our goal is to have every member involved with a Life Group. We believe in how God works in those small, intimate settings. You will be blessed and our church will be blessed by your involvement and participation in a Life Group. Share your gifts of grace and love to further the work of the Lord and his kingdom here in this place.

The Light of the World - by bryan johnston

The Light of the World - by bryan johnston

(Written 8/27/17 - shortly after a full solar eclipse was visible from our location)


Millions of people traveled hundreds of miles to witness perhaps a once in a lifetime experience – the 2017 Solar Eclipse! We traveled 100 miles to Newport, Oregon to witness one of nature’s amazing sites. It took planning and forethought to position ourselves in the right place at the right time. The solar eclipse was predicted to start at 9:05 A.M., so we were in place at that time. It took the right equipment to safely view the astronomical attraction. We pre-purchased the NASA/ISO approved protective eye wear to stare observantly at the ocular occurrence. It took patience and endurance to wait for the moon to align itself perfectly in the path of the sun’s light rays to display the total solar eclipse. It took faith to trust that the weather would comply with our viewing location. The fog did give us quite the scare during the last fifteen minutes before totality. Then, at exactly 10:17 A.M. our anticipation broke into complete awe and shouts of joy. Darkness covered the land, the temperature dropped, and the only source of light was a single perfect ring expressing itself around the edge of the interrupting moon. After two minutes of this phenomenal presentation, the moon continued its path across the sky causing the sun’s light to burst forth like a diamond exploding from the upper right side of the solar ring. It was a sight to behold. It was a blessing to share the moment with my family. It is a memory captured forever in our hearts, minds, and on Facebook.
My question though is, now what? What difference does the solar eclipse make on our lives? Are we changed? Are we transformed?


I pray that the world would reflect on the light of Christ which came into the world, breaking through the darkness. He is the “light that shined in the darkness, but the darkness did not understand it.” (Jn. 1:5) Jesus says, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness.” (Jn. 8:12) Jesus fills his church with his light saying, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matt. 5:14) John goes on to say, “God is light” and “If we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus, his Son purifies us from all sin.” (1 Jn. 1:5, 7) Take full view of the son of God, who conquered death, defeated sin, and is reigning eternally. He is the king forever. He can become your light if you will believe and become his disciple. Many millions more will come to know God because of how we shine his light into the world.
The light of Jesus makes all the difference.

home sweet home - by bryan johnston

My grandfather Harold Martin made his home in the Mona Community in Northeast Montana. His parents homesteaded there in 1915 and after marrying my grandmother Edith in 1925, they built their life together on that land. They had five children together and were active members in the Church and kingdom of God. My grandpa loved his family, his land, and his Lord. He worked hard running the farm, helping neighbors, and serving the church. He loved teasing his grandchildren, playing games, and making music on his fiddle. My grandpa loved his home.


When his wife Edith preceded him in death, Harold spent time living with his children. The farm was taken over by his son Duane and Harold would continue to help when he was able. His two daughters who lived
in town would take turns looking after him and caring for his needs. As much as he loved his daughters’ care and attention, he always had an aching for home. For the first couple of years after Edith’s death,
he would routinely ask to go home. His daughters would kindly take him from town out to the farm his home. He would seem satisfied and at peace, even though missing his dear Edith. In the last two years of
his life, when he would ask to go home and his daughters would take him to the farm he didn’t seem as satisfied. Even after returning to the farm, his homestead, he would still ask if he could go home. The only other home he was longing for was his home in heaven, where he would be united with his sweet Edith, his loving Father, and his Lord.


Praise God he made Jesus his home and there he abides. Jesus is home. He came to this earth to be with us. He made himself flesh and lived among us. Jesus brought his home to us and invited us to life with him. Jesus was in perfect fellowship with God and he desired for us to make our home with him. Jesus said, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” (John 14:23) Abide in the Lord, make your home with him. -Bryan


When Darkness Turns to light - by bryan johnston

When Darkness Turns to light - by bryan johnston

    [On August 21st] a total solar eclipse was visible in totality within a band across the entire contiguous United States. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the sun for a viewer on Earth. The last time a total solar eclipse was visible across the entire contiguous United States was on June 8, 1918. Among others, the towns of Newport, Salem, and Madras Oregon will be flooded with eclipse enthusiasts. The eclipse was estimated to begin at 9:05 A.M. PST with the totality occurring at 10:17 A.M. PST. The totality itself will only last about two minutes. We had to be warned against looking directly at the sun while the eclipse is setting into and releasing from its totality. There was a high potential for extreme and even permanent damage to the eye from looking directly into the sun for that extended period of time. NASA and the American Astronomical Society urge solar gazers to only use glasses with the safety standard number “ISO 12312-2” printed and guaranteed on them. Be safe and enjoy this once in a lifetime experience.
