Welcome to First Assembly, a relevant, exciting church striving to be living proof of an empty tomb. Our mission is to serve, serve the Lord Jesus Christ, His church and those searching for the meaning and purpose of life. You are cordially invited to celebrate with us the victory made possible through the cross as we defend the truth together and provoke this world to jealously.
Ready or Not
As a relatively new grandparent for the past three years, I have been reintroduced to many things that I had forgotten about, like fairy tales and children’s games. Some things involved uncharted waters for me with advanced technology. Since my baptism into grand parenthood I have newly discovered the baby channel. We didn’t have this when ours were babies. I have found out that there are self powered swings, rockers, bassinets with remote controls these days too, one I discovered even plays music, lullabies, and makes ocean sounds to help junior drift off to sleep. What I have also learned is that though times have changed and with it the technology, children haven’t. Their hearts are still pure and wide open, their language is to the point, and their needs are the same, to be loved, trained, and blessed. As of late I have played many games of “hide and seek”, now that’s a game that will never go out of style. Recently as I was hiding in a closet awaiting Cohen’s pursuit, I thought about his last words after the count to ten, “Ready or not here I come”. As we gear up for Christmas and celebrate the coming of the Savior, let us also be reminded that He’s coming back, ready or not.
