Big God

I remember hearing a teaching a couple years ago talking about the galaxies, the stars, and the speed of light, etc. All of which are so fascinating to me.

I was looking at the sky last night observing the moon, the stars and all that God has created. It is pretty cool to see evidence of His goodness with my own eyes. It’s fascinating to think God and what He created is so big that it takes years upon years for the light to reach my eyes so that I can even be able to see those stars. That's a Big God, huh?!
God's truth is different though isn't it?
Though I can't see Him physically, my faith is trusting in what is not seen. Living by faith helps me to see and know what is true even if I can't see it. Faith pulls me through even when I hear the lies the enemy is trying to show me otherwise. We have a big God to put our faith in.
““See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness—” Habakkuk 2:4 NIV

This week at Celebrate Recovery

This Thursday we will walk through the second lesson on spiritual inventory:
Did you know that the most difficult thing to open is a closed mind? Romans 12:2 gives us clear direction regarding our minds: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — His good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Our One Year Celebration of Hope and Recovery is coming up!

Hello forever family! We are getting ready for an evening filled with hope! Come and enjoy a BBQ chicken dinner with all the fixings.
When you purchase your tickets you will automatically receive a raffle ticket. We will be raffling off some great gifts. We are also having TWO silent auctions that will be running at the same time!

Opioid deaths are at an all time high here in the Central Valley, as well as all across our country. 
Naloxone (Narcan) is a medicine that rapidly reverses an opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist. This means that it attaches to opioid receptors and reverses and blocks the effects of other opioids. Naloxone can quickly restore normal breathing to a person if their breathing has slowed or stopped because of an opioid overdose. But, naloxone has no effect on someone who does not have opioids in their system, and it is not a treatment for opioid use disorder. Examples of opioids include heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine, and morphine.
After the training BCJC will be on hand to distribute Narcan To everyone that attends.
