Baptism Service

It is our privilege to baptize three candidates today:

Carol Gamble * Jann Monk * Steve Rapp

These individuals have come to saving faith in Jesus Christ, and they are following our Lord’s command to be baptized. Jesus Himself gave us the example (Math. 3.13-17). This act of obedience is necessary for our spiritual growth, our initiation into the body of Christ, and for our identity as Christians (Rom. 6.3-7). Perhaps you need to be baptized?

See Pastors Tom or Jim.

Please park with care in our church lot, especially as you use the new, lower lot. Thank you.

Church Storage

We're adding another shed behind our church building. It will be used for storage which is becoming a pressing need. The existing shed will be returned to a classroom which was its original purpose. You may want to contribute to the new shed's purchase. We're trying to meet the needs of our church with a steady, conservative advance while always honoring the Lord.

Join a Shepherding Group

NHCF has three Shepherding Groups that meet on Wednesday evenings: one in our church with Pastor Tom and Terry Lowry, one at Roger Brown's house, and one at Chris Lewis' house. We pray and study God's Word, but just as important, we have fellowship together where we build relationships and learn to "bear one another's burdens."


W e continue to celebrate Easter; it is the essence of Christianity . Jesus Christ, crucified, buried and rising again from the dead. This is the gospel (1 Cor.15.3 5). It is the "good news" of God's great love for us that He should come

personally to pay the price for our sins. Glory!

Think about it. What's wrong with mankind? Isn't it the fact that we continue to sin against God and our neighbors? Yes, sin is the problem, and Jesus is the solution. "By HIs stripes we are healed" (Isa. 53.5). Healed of what? We're healing from the worst of infections: sin.

"Sin is lawlessness" (1 Jn.3.4). It's not just breaking the law of Go d, but living in a spirit of disobedience. Samuel tells King Saul that "disobedience is as the sin of witchcraft" (1 Sam.15.23). Jesus obeyed the Father perfectly, "who for

the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Heb.12.2). "Not my will but Thine be done" (Luke 22.42).

That's the reason that the resurrection is so important. It's important because Jesus, as the second Adam, received the Father's approval. "He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells you" (Rom.8.11).

We live in "the power of the resurrection" (Phil.3.10). We are redeemed and sanctified by the shed blood of Jesus, whose sinless life was the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world. May the power of the resurrection fill your lives.
