Our Author of the Month for
January is New York Time

JOEL C. ROSENBERG.
PRIMETIMERS’ FELLOWSHIP
Joel is the producer of two
documentary films based on his
nonfiction books - Epicenter and
Inside the Revolution. He is also
the founder of The Joshua Fund, a
nonprofit educational and charitable
organization to mobilize Christians
to bless Israel and her neighbors
in the name of Jesus with food,
clothing, medical supplies, and
other humanitarian relief. In 2008,
Joel designed and hosted the first
Epicenter Conference in Jerusalem.
The event drew two thousand
Christians who wanted to learn,
pray, give, and go to the Lord’s
work in Israel and the Middle East.
Subsequent live webcast conferences
have drawn thousands to listen
to the Christian speakers,
Come in and browse our collection
of Joel's books and check out

I am looking for brothers and sisters in Christ

Morning Sermon Notes - January 18, 2015
A LOOK BACK, A LOOK AHEAD
2 Peter 1:1-11
Remembering God's blessings (vv. 3–4)
Anticipating God's opportunities (vv. 5-7)
And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
He replied: “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand
of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
