Lake Chapala Baptist
In last week’s sermon, “A Lion Roars Out of Zion,” Pastor John Linton continued to delve deep into the fascinating book of Amos, a venerable Old Testament prophet.
As in his previous sermons on Amos, Pastor John draws parallels between the chaos of those ancient days and the utter destabilization of today’s world. The lesson, he says, is as clear now as it was then: “Cruelty begets cruelty, and there will be no mercy for the merciless.” Share thoughtful weekly sermons, uplifting music, and an ongoing thirst for true wisdom at Lake Chapala Baptist Church every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. Adult Sunday school starts at 9:45, and Bible study groups meet on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. for women and 10:30 a.m. for men. Located at Santa Margarita 147, Riberas del Pilar. Call 376-765-2925 or visit lakechapalabaptistchurch.com or the LCBC Facebook page for more information. Covid protocols are observed.

Jesus tells us that the road to heaven is a narrow one. What a tragedy to think that you’re going in the right direction only to find that you have somehow taken a wrong turn.
Dr. Wayne Cook’s sermon this week is titled “Taking the Wrong Turn.” His family once went on a trip and passed through a large city. It was very confusing because there were connections coming in and going out of the interstate highway. He managed to take a wrong exit. Naturally there was no easy way to get back on the right highway. So he drove for about five miles before he could finally turn around.
Although Philippians was primarily a joyful letter, Paul takes the time to talk about the danger of going astray in Philippians 3: 1 – 3.
Please join us in person or via Facebook at Lakeside Presbyterian Church Chapala at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday or watch it later on Facebook or our church website lpcchapala.org.
