Hello and praise the Lord from the Stanford Church of the Nazarene. We are glad you have taken the time to read our article this week and hope you find some encouragement from it.

Question of the week: Do you train to be an ambassador for Jesus or just try your best? Do you know the real cost of sin?

To find more answers, you can visit YouTube and watch this past Sunday’s services. On Sunday morning we looked at Hebrews 5 on the subject of “Training vs. Trying” focusing in on actually training to be the Christian God has called us to be. Then on Sunday night, we began a new study working through Romans, looking at chapter 1 on the subject of “The Real Cost of Sin.”

Some upcoming events include our community Good Friday Service on Friday, April 19 at 7 p.m. in the fellowship hall; the community Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 20 at 2 p.m. at the church; and our Easter services, featuring our Easter play on Sunday, April 21 at 11 a.m.

Want to sing? Come join us on Sunday nights. The first Sunday night of every month is “Song and Testimony” night and every Sunday night is “open mic.” If the Lord has placed a song and/or testimony on your heart we would encourage you to come be with us and share.
