TEN COMMANDMENTS GAINS ANOTHER VICTORY.  The head of Liberty Counsel, a firm that litigates on civil and religious rights issues, says a decision from the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals has extended a winning streak for the Ten Commandments that dates back to 2005. The organization successfully argued on behalf of the legality of a display in a public building in Kentucky that included the Ten Commandments among other historical references.

TIM TEBOW…The Florida Gators quarterback will be starring in a Focus on the Family-sponsored commercial with his mother – a commercial that will promote family values – commercials scheduled to air during the Super Bowl
Tebow was born in the Philippines to parents serving as Christian missionaries. Tim’s mother became seriously ill with amoebic dysentery while she was pregnant with him. The drugs used to treat the illness also caused the placenta to detach from her uterus, and doctors recommended an abortion to save Mrs. Tebow’s life. She insisted on carrying the baby to term, allowing Tim, her fifth child, to be born. The 22-year-old football player said, “That’s the reason I’m here, because my mom is a very courageous woman.” Liberal groups will try to stop the advertisement. PTL for Christian athletes willing to make a public stand.

2                    God reveals Himself to us through prayer. (Psalms 143:10)
3                    God invites us to bring our burdens and needs to Him in prayer. (Matthew 11:28)
4                    God responds to the prayers of His people.  (James 5:16b)

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER: For years, it’s been a staple of the White House calendar. On the first Thursday of May, dedicated as the National Day of Prayer, President George W. Bush hosted an ecumenical service in the East Room, a big public endorsement of evangelical Christians. (This event is different from the National Prayer Breakfast, held outside the White House gates every year on the first Thursday of February.)  President Obama opted not to have a service in the White House this year.

“At this time in our country’s history, we would hope our president would recognize more fully the importance of prayer,” Shirley Dobson said in a statement.

But Obama has shown an unusual sensitivity toward atheists, the first president to mention non-believers in an inaugural address when he said, “For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and non-believers.”

An urgent appeal from 1 Timothy 2:1,2  “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”

Let’s let the world know that we are a praying people!!!

School of Biblical Studies (SBS) will not have a March lecture this year.  Over the past three years it has been poorly attended.  The cost and the attendance has forced us to not have one this year.

SBS has started classes for this spring.  We have our first Youth Ministry class.  We have three young men enrolled right now.  If you have a need for one of the young men to come for a Sunday or Wednesday night let me know.  They are eager yet with no experience.  Contact:
