Our fellowship has placed a strong emphasis on men’s ministry with the hope of raising up another generation of disciples and leaders in the Kingdom of God. This year, we have the great privilege of having a Men’s Rally in Jacksonville, NC featuring the founder of our fellowship, Pastor Wayman Mitchell and his son, Pastor Greg. I strongly recommend for every man in our church to do all within their power to make this rally a priority.

The plan is to leave from Virginia Beach at 3PM on Friday, December 7 in order to arrive in Jacksonville before the start time of 8PM. We will all pitch in to split up some hotel rooms overnight and then return Saturday morning for three more challenging messages. If you cannot make the Friday night service, please do all you can to leave early Saturday morning, to arrive by the morning start time of 9AM.

We should head back to Hampton Roads about 1PM, returning around 6PM. Please sign up below to pitch in to cover travel and hotel expenses. Can’t wait!

Celebration of the Biblical Family

celebration-of-family.jpg

We were shocked and disturbed to learn that the Virginia Beach Public Library was hosting and promoting the Drag Queen Story Time each month for the last few months. This event gives a platform to a nightclub exhibitionist whose stage name is Gillette Black. The library has thought it acceptable to allow him to read stories about gender dysphoria to children as young as three, while extravagantly dressed in immodest drag attire.

Our church has the conviction that we cannot allow this event to continue without a Christ-centered response. That is why we asked for and received permission from the library to hold a Celebration of the Biblical Family. We will be gathering together in this public forum to affirm the wisdom, beauty, and grandeur of the family, as defined by the Word of God. This is not an attack on any individual or group, this is an opportunity to present a positive, encouraging and enlightening message to a world that is lost in much confusion.

If you were as shocked as we were at the Drag Queen Story Time, we hope that you'll bring your family to the Joint-Use Public Library on Saturday, the 29th of September at 1PM to remind our community that there are still a few people left that will stand up to the immoral trends of the world.

Hope to see you there as we lift up the Name of Jesus Christ!

God & Country Presentation in Washington, D.C.

Join us for an exciting day of worship and patriotism

Saturday, July 28

 

First, a few pictures from previous God & Country Events in 2013, 2015, and 2016:

It's time again for the annual God & Country event in Washington, D.C.! The event will take place on the steps in front of the Lincoln Memorial, started promptly at 11AM. This year, festivities will include a concert, a US Navy Color Guard & Drill Team performance, testimonies from combat veterans and active duty personnel, and biblical preaching in the heart of our nation's capitol.

We would like to have as many active duty or veterans in uniform as possible. If you still have your uniform or are currently active duty, please wear it to the event so we can honor your service. Pastor Colona has also put out a call to any saved military personnel that have been in combat give a short testimony on the sacrifice that they have seen in a time of war and also acknowledge the sacrifice that Christ made for them. If this applies to you and you would like to attend. Please contact me ASAP so I can get you involved.

When the event concludes, the group from our church here in Virginia Beach will eat some lunch and then make a trip to the newly opened Museum of the Bible. It is only a two-mile walk from the God & Country event and is well worth the time and effort to visit while we are in the area. We expect to be back in Virginia Beach around 11PM.

There is no cost for this trip, except for transportation. Please let me know if you are interested in pooling our resources to rent a passenger van to minimize transportation costs.

We hope you can join us for this exciting Saturday filled with God and Country!

Sunday Night Series - The Art of Marriage

God can turn any marriage into a masterpiece.

322.jpg

Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives. Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form — challenging to master but definitely worth the effort.

In The Art of Marriage, we weave together expert teaching, engaging stories, man-on-the-street interviews, humorous vignettes and much more to portray the hope and beauty of God's design for marriage, and now the same great content is available in a six-week study format. The Art of Marriage video series topics include:

  • Love Happens: God's Purpose and Plan
  • Love Fades: Overcoming Isolation
  • Love Dances: Fulfilling Our Responsibilities
  • Love Interrupted: Communication and Conflict
  • Love Sizzles: Experiencing Real Intimacy
  • Love Always: Leaving a Lasting Legacy

The Art of Marriage Event consists of six video sessions, combining dramatic stories, real-life testimonies, expert interviews, humorous vignettes and other teaching methods to lay out God's design for marriage in a fresh, engaging way.

The videos and group discussions will be complimentary and open to all on Sunday nights @ 6:30PM starting on May 7. There is also an optional couple's workbook set, each containing group discussion questions, mini-projects for completion during group meetings, date-night suggestions for couples, and articles and tips for improving marriage. This set is available for purchase at the discounted price of $20 per couple. Let us know you're coming here.

Please don't miss this helpful series!

Financial Peace University @ The Potter's House

Some sad statistics:

  • Approximately 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, regardless of their income.
  • This means that “broke” has become the new normal in our nation.
  • At the end of the month, many individuals simply have nothing left because of debt and expenses.

If this is you, I’ve got good news. You are not alone.

You may be sitting there wishing you could get more financial margin in your life. If you’d like to take control of your money, then listen carefully. As a church, we want to share a practical plan that can help you discover God’s way of handling money. We want to empower you to get on a budget, get out of debt, save for the future, and take control of your money.

Financial Peace University is that plan. This 9-week class taught by money expert Dave Ramsey can change your financial story in a matter of weeks—and your family tree for generations to come. 

The Potter's House of Virginia Beach will be hosting this fantastic class starting Thursday, February 2 at 7PM and continuing each week. Join us for this life-changing learning experience.

New Sunday School Series – Training Tykes for Tomorrow

The job of parenting has always been a difficult one,

...but those who have lived in America for the last 40 years have watched it become even more so. Our children are faced with the influence of a declining morality, and as parents we are less confident than our predecessors in our knowledge of raising them. With the "experts" offering contradictory advice and the lack of a cohesive, biblical consensus within the Church, Christian parents have found themselves feeling helpless and frustrated with their children. For many of them, parenting has become such a source of frustration that they do everything within their power to prevent the conception of any more "problems." Their stress is so great that they count the days until their children are old enough to go to school or move out on their own. They look forward to summertime and holiday vacations, but dread the thought of being with their children all day long.

Those parents who are exasperated with their children are missing the blessing that God says children are to bring to their lives. They do not perceive children as a gift, but a curse. Fortunately, it does not have to be that way. When God calls children a "blessing," a "gift," and a "reward," He places each one in the womb with that potential. If our children are not a blessing to us, it is not because an alien tampered with their genetic code as they grew in the womb. It is, most likely, because we have not succeeded in some element of their training.

Considering the confusion of contemporary child rearing ideas and the sparse number of solid role models, it is no wonder that we have so many blind spots today. The tragedy is, many frustrated parents believe they are doing everything correctly and think they have no blind spots. But that is what a blind spot is – something you cannot see!

One thing is certain, any parents who disclaim responsibility for how their children are turning out, are depriving themselves of the potential they have to shape their children's character and future. –Excerpt from Child Training Tips by Reb Bradley

Join us for an exciting Adult Bible Study each Sunday morning at 10AM for the next eight weeks for an honest conversation about the biblical way to raise our children.
