Prayers for Uvalde

Prayers for Uvalde

The tragic events in Uvalde, TX have us reeling again: another mass shooting, a whole community suffering. We grieve with and pray for the families who have suffered traumatic loss. We all feel a certain amount of helplessness. What can be done to stop this?

Certainly there will be renewed debate about gun control. There will no doubt be review of the perpetrator’s mental health and probably his family background and drug use, if any. Effort will be made to pin blame somewhere. But there’s a good chance, the research will deal with symptoms rather than the systemic problem our country faces.

We are bringing up generations of young people with little or no regard for human life. And why is that? Respect for life is a cornerstone of civilized society and it is moored in morality.

For decades those demanding separation of church and state have driven God from our schools. And with God goes morality. If there is no divine accountability, there is no need for morality. Morality is nothing more than a recommended option rather than a necessity for existence. In this way, our schools are failing our kids. There are many good people trying to make a difference in the school system and we are grateful for every one of them. But systemically, our schools have failed our kids and many of our homes have done no better.

There is hope but only if we reintroduce morality alongside mathematics and we let our children hear that there is human accountability to a divine being. Change can come but only if we reintroduce God.

Home Study Groups

Home Study Groups

Small groups are a big deal at Continental. We think the focused study around the Word provides spiritual growth and some of the sweetest fellowship this side of heaven. Our Men’s and Ladies’ groups alternate  every other Weds. Details of our Men’s and Ladies’ groups follow below:

  • Ladies meet on the 1st and 2nd Weds and are studying using the Workman of the Word Series: 1 Kings

A House for Me

A House for Me

from Series: Prayer Points on Property

Moses built the Lord a house; we call it the tabernacle. Solomon built Him a house and we call it the temple.

Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands.

Why are men so set on building God a house, when He doesn’t even dwell there? The prophet Jeremiah reminds us that God fills heaven and earth (Jer. 23:24). We don’t need a house to place God for He is everywhere. And if He wanted a house, He could build one much more majestic than we.

But there remains a need for a house, not for God’s benefit but for ours. We need a place where we can pray and worship and meet with others who wish to do the same. We need a place to remind us that the God who is everywhere is also right here. We need a place to display His fame and to invite others to call upon His name. To these ends then, let us pray for a house for the Lord.
