Weekly Worship - May 21, 2022

Lake Chapala Baptist

“There is no other to whom we can flee,” Pastor Linton said in opening his sermon last Sunday. “You help us to persevere; You strengthen us day by day.

“Do you think God is harsh? It’s evil in this world that is harsh! Does death terrify you? Unbelievers are marching to their deaths on a suicide mission. Oh Christian, how grateful, how humble we should be that Christ came to free us from the shackles of death!

“Paul—in prison—wanted to depart and be with Christ, but felt obligated to stay for his beloved flock of true believers. Let us say with Paul, ‘Christ will be honored in my body, whether by my life or by my death!’”

Lakeside Presbyterian

Sunday, May 22, Pastor Carolyn will talk this week about the Book of Chronicles: Building Hope, Building a Future.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2Ch 7:14).

The Book of 2 Chronicles was written to help the Israelites deal with their return from exile. They were asking questions like: Does God still love us? Are His covenants still in force? Can we worship God without the temple? Will we survive as a nation, as God’s chosen people? Today, we ask many similar questions, when we see the world changing so dramatically. 2 Chronicles lets the Israelites—and us—know emphatically: There is hope!

In-church services are at 9:30 a.m. (English) and 11 a.m. (Spanish). The live English service streams each Sunday on Facebook at Lakeside Presbyterian Church-Chapala or at lpc-chapala.org. Following Government of Jalisco guidance, we do not need to mask anymore.  However, LPC has designated an area to the left in front for those in attendance who desire to remain fully distanced, and masked, for their peace of mind.

If you need a ride to come to church, contact LPC at  376-106-0853 before 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Coffee and refreshments are served after the service in the Narthex.

Jewish Congregation
