How Did This Happen?
Coin: Faithfulness in the Small Things • February 17, 2020 • Pastor Clarence E. Stowers, Jr.
[NEW SERIES] Coin: Faithfulness in the Small Things In this week’s segment of “Coin", Pastor Stowers focuses his message on those of us who find ourselves in a dark place in life, whether financially, morally, or otherwise. God’s desire is to help us find a way out of this dark place, and in order to get out, we have to figure out how we got there in the first place. Often, our path to the dark place begins when we believe a lie and become convinced that our lives are about us. When we chase our own happiness through the world’s means, we set ourselves on a path for destruction. Once we have believed the lie, we engage in self-destructive behavior. And when that behavior causes our lives to spin out of control, we isolate ourselves from those who can help us, claiming that they won’t understand. This process leads us to the dark place – and that’s the last place that God desires for us to be!

[BONUS] Say The Things You Need to Say!
Life is precious and for some, brief. • February 4, 2020 • Pastor Clarence E. Stowers, Jr.
During last Sunday's worship, it shifted and Pastor Stowers encouraged people to "say the things they need to say." Kobe Bryant and others aboard that chopper reminds us that life is unpredictable, and for some, brief. Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes, according to James 4:14. Check out this inspiring clip, and afterward, call/text someone and say the things you need to say.
