Lake Chapala Baptist
“Fear is contagious,” Pastor John declared from last Sunday’s pulpit.
“It spreads through the world, even to the people of God.” During the crushing times described in the book of Amos, fear and lawlessness ruled. All one must do is look around to see history repeating itself in the most appalling way. “The days of Noah and Lot are here,” he said. “The lion has roared, and who shall not fear him?” But Christians have hope: “God is in total control! We are to trust Him and be at peace, constrained in our hearts to be accountable for living the life God wants us to live, even in times of encroaching fear. God has reached out and grabbed you up, and said, ‘You are Mine!’”

Abundant Life Church
What does it mean to love someone? There is a lot of talk about love from people both within the church as well as those outside of her walls, but each one has a distinct concept of what love is. As believers it is im-perative that we know what love is because Jesus says that it will distinguish His disciples from everyone else (John 13:35). Come this Sunday, October 3, ready to not only understand the kind of love that God calls us to but also to put it into practice.
English Sunday service is at 10 a.m., also at abundantlifechapala.com. Bible study is Wednesdays at 3 p.m. in English. Carretera Chapala-Joco 140 in San Antonio Tlayacapan, a block from Super Lake market.
