Devotional Thoughts

2 Timothy 1:7

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.”


In this time of worldwide panic over a virus, it is of utmost importance that we as Christians exhibit a calm and unfearful demeanor in our dealings with people within and without the church.  God is in control.  At the same time we are to exhibit a “spirit of power, and of love and of a sound mind.”  This means that with God’s power we can continue to show the love of God and that we as Christians can make rational decisions.  

I am not advocating that the decision that we at Lighthouse have made is the right one for every ministry.  Each ministry has its own needs and God does not lead us all down the same path.

We at Lighthouse are suspending all services until further notice.  We are officially closed through March 29th, at which time we will reevaluate the virus situation.  Pray with us that this period of trial will end soon.

In HIS Service, 

Pastor Loren Bell
