Lakeside Presbyterian

Pastor Carolyn, will talk this week about a prophesy, from Jeremiah: “Jeremiah: The Broken-Hearted Prophet.” Jeremiah 31:33.

Jeremiah lived an incredibly dramatic life as a prophet, and that’s saying something when you consider the lives (and deaths) of the prophets. Jeremiah was never comfortable in his role. Through all the excitement, he remained reluctant, insecure, and often unhappy. However, Jeremiah had a message from God that includes all believers—even those of us living in Mexico in 2022.

Service starting time is 9:30 a.m. for the English-language service and 11 a.m. for the Spanish-language service.

The live English service streams each Sunday on Facebook at Lakeside Presbyterian Church-Chapala or at lpc-chapala.org.

If you need a ride, call  376-106-0853 before 4 p.m. on Thursday.

There is coffee and refreshments after the service in the Narthex.

Lake Chapala Baptist

Last Sunday we enjoyed another guest speaker at the LCBC pulpit, Ed Garnet. His intriguing sermon topic was “When Your Memories Become Your Enemies,” and it was a grand ramble through the past, present, and future wellbeing of our souls.

“Your memory is one of your mind’s highest functions,” Eddie said, “but what do you do with all of your bad memories, resentments, and regrets?

“Reflecting ad nauseam on the past is a dangerous habit, whether we’re brooding over our failures or our successes. Stewing in unforgiveness about past wrongs will almost certainly destroy your joy in salvation. And if you have wounds that you dwell on, such as a broken heart, remember which world you have chosen, believer!

“We serve a God who looks forward. Give your whole heart to the present. God wants all of who you are, here and now. Let Him comfort your heart and put your whole will into this most precious choice, Jesus Christ, letting Him heal you and forgetting what lies behind!”

Share memorable weekly sermons, uplifting music, and an ongoing thirst for true wisdom at 10:45 a.m. at the Lake Chapala Baptist Church. Santa Margarita 147, Riberas del Pilar.
