Word Of The Month

EL celebrates 52 YEARS in July!  Since our beginning, our church celebrates anniversaries every year.  It is the time when we, from various languages, ethnicities and age groups, gather together in ONE worship service.


Anniversaries provide us the opportunity to give thanks & praise God. Psalm 105:1 exhorts, “Give thanks to the LORD and proclaim His greatness. Let the whole world know what He has done.” We must be grateful to God for His mercies & thankful for His blessings.  “He is good and His love endures forever” should be our refrain.


Anniversaries strengthen our faith in God. They remind us of His greatness and power.  When Israel was set free from Egypt, God said, “Celebrate this Festival of Unleavened Bread, for it will remind you that I brought your forces out of the land of Egypt on this very day … Celebrate this day from generation to generation.”  Exodus 12:17 We know that He is the Almighty & Faithful God.


Anniversaries are occasions to look forward. As we rejoice in what God has done, we know that  greater things are ahead of us. The day will come when “every knee should bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”  Philippians 2:10-11


May every July be a time of thanksgiving & faith as we move forward in God’s plan!
