48. How Does Sin Affect You?

The God-opposing, self-centered power of sin, which is present in all people, corrupts me and my relationship with God, with others and with creation. Because of sin and apart from Christ, I am spiritually dead, separated from God, under his righteous condemnation, and without hope. (Genesis 3; Ephesians 2:1–3; Galatians 5:19–21)

Special Events:

Prayer for Kairos Weekend

The 48th Kairos weekend will begin on April 28th at Buckingham Correctional Center, 60 miles west of Richmond. John Powers, Ernest Proctor, and Walter TeStrake have joined a team of men Cookiesrepresenting multiple Christian denominations who are preparing to share the love of Jesus to 42 inmates who will attend the Kairos weekend.

Pray for the 42. Pray for other inmates at Buckingham who are standing apart and not participating. Pray for the Christian leaders of the weekend, and especially those from our church family—John, Ernest, and Walter. Pray for Mary Swann and Lucy Logan who will be praying for spiritual protection and God's grace to support those leaders during the weekend. Pray as God leads you.

Walk for Life, Richmond

The Pregnancy Resource Center - our crisis pregancy partner in Richmond - is having a two-mile Walk for Life on Saturday, April 30, beginning at 10:00 AM. If you would like to be on our Light of Christ walking team, please contact Carolyn Costello.

National Day of Prayer, Lancaster and Northumberland Counties

Celebration of the 65th National Day of Prayer will take place on May 5 at noon at the courthouses of both Lancaster County and Northumberland County.

This annual event is a public gathering, in local communities and at the national level, to pray for righteousness, repentance, and to intercede for America's leaders. The National Day of Prayer underscores the unique history of the founding of our country—that it was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

The theme this year is Wake Up America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to God in reverence. The Scripture for 2016 is Isaiah 58:1: “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.”

Tuesday: Day of Fasting

The idea of fasting has a long history among God’s people when they found themselves in special need of God’s provision and grace. Fasting is denying ourselves something that we need in order to show God how serious we are about what we are asking of him.

On Tuesday February 2, we will begin Daniel 9:3our first day of prayer and fasting as a church. Perhaps you could give up something that you really enjoy for one day as a way of demonstrating to God your sincerity of heart.

Below are a few examples recorded in Scripture of people fasting: Daniel 9:3, Joel 2:12, Acts 13:2, Acts 14:23

Good News Sunday School

We have launched the Good News Sunday School for children, youth and adults at Light of Christ. The plans are exciting and all are invited to experience this new season of study and insights into the word of God.
