Pray for our President

and our Leaders!

Honour all men.  Love the brotherhood.  Fear God.  Honour the king.  
(KJV, 1 Peter 2:17)

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth 
(KJV, 1 Timothy 2:1-4) 

February 18:
Van Activity - We are so excited for this Sunday's activity with the Van and Bus children!  We are planning to have a FUN time, providing LUNCH and games including Balloon Hockey!  The children will be home by 1:30pm.  If you have any questions, please see or ask Clyde Ausmus!
February 21:
Head Deacon Dan Weinreich - Our Head Deacon, Bro. Dan Weinreich, will fill the pulpit on Wednesday, February 21.  Pastor & Kathy Beal will be out of the town on this day but will quickly return.  Please come to hear the Word of God and be an encouragement to our brother in the Lord.

February 24:
Visitation - Please JOIN US on Saturdays at 10:30am for Visitation, meeting in the Pastor's office!  Don't be any part of Satan's 'collusion' to lie against the Gospel or in any way dampen it.  If you KNOW and POSSESS the TRUTH today (you are saved), SHARE IT!  It is not a suggestion ~ Jesus commands in His Great Commission to "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."  (KJV, Mark 16:15)

Are YOU going to heaven?  The Bible tells us that we are all sinners; we were born into a carnal, sinful body.  Jesus Christ ~ the Almighty Creator and Son of God ~ came to earth from His throne to provide the world 'a means of escape' from their duty to pay for their sins.  He paid for their sins....with His life.  He was pure and sinless.  He offered Himself as a lamb of sacrifice to pay for every man's sins (if they would call upon Him to do so).  It is a FREE gift to YOU but it certainly was not cheap.  But like every gift, it must be received and our old ways repented.  If you would like to go to heaven, please DO NOT HESITATE to call us at Joy Baptist Church (319-372-8008 / 470-3999) for more information about what Jesus did for you and how quickly this day YOU can be saved and on your way to heaven!  We do not know the day or hour that Jesus will return for His saints, or even how many breaths we are allotted on this earth.  The scriptures tell us that our life is but a vapor.  Do not postpone this MAJOR decision.

February 25:
Creation Corner w/Clint - Deacon Clint Oldfield's Creation Corner will share God's Word, emphasizing always the truth "In the beginning, God...".  He will make a Biblical application next to his knowledge and education in Natural Science.  His presentations are fascinating, insomuch as they illuminate the the power of God.  Our earth was not conceived by a bang but by the Will of God, the Word of God and His desire to have a relationship with us.  He provided all that we know in nature for us.  To God be the glory!!! 

March 3:
Teens - As our Teens gear up for their Youth Rally & Quiz Bowl in Quincy leaving at 11:30am, let us pray for their studying, safety, and success even now.  We are so pleased with their heart to seek God's Word, to hear His voice, and to encourage their peers to join them in coming to church.  We hope for them every good and Godly thing.

March 11:
DST Begins - Yes, in three weeks, we will 'spring' forward and enjoy the evening light more and more!
