Help is always needed to fill the buckets with food for distribution to the very needy.  For in Acts 20:35 it is written, “In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus, for himself said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Lakeside Presbyterian

Sunday, August 16, 10 a.m., Dr. Wayne Cook responds to the often-asked question: “How big is Our God?” The answers are thought-provoking: “Big enough to know everything, to do anything, to be everywhere.” Recorded versions are available on facebook.com/lpcchapala, and on www.lpcchapala.org. Devotionals are posted to these sites Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

Abundant Life Church

How much does God expect of you? There are many people who think that God doesn’t expect much and others who feel that the task God is giving them is beyond their abilities. God has called every believer to take the message of Jesus to the world. That is a big job and it seems even larger when we start to compare ourselves with others who seem so much better equipped. If God is the one who is calling then we can depend on him. Come this Sunday, August 16, as Pastor Gary encourages us from the Word of God to be Strong and Courageous.    

We are limited to 50 people, so be one of the first to arrive. Those who cannot be with us in person will enjoy our services both on our Facebook page as well as our YouTube channel and at abundantlifechapala.com.

Abundant Life Church is affiliated with the Assemblies of God of Mexico. English Bible study is Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Abundant Life Church is located at Carretera Chapala-Joco 140 in San Antonio Tlayacapan.

Lakeside Community

Fellowship

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” (James 4:13-14).  

I’m sure you’ve gone for a walk on an overcast, foggy morning. The sun begins to rise, the fog burns off and it’s gone. Life is like that. As I look back on my life I sometimes wonder, “Where did the years go?” These verses tell us that we’re not guaranteed tomorrow so it’s important for us to do a couple of things. First, enjoy today. Second, make plans for the future. There’s a multitude of financial and legal details that are important to take care of while we’re here on earth, but what about life after death. Is there such a thing? The Bible says there is, so I would encourage everyone to read the Scriptures and make plans for the future.

The church meets online every Sunday at 10 a.m.
