Focus On God-Jesus Is The Answer

john : April 28, 2017 3:49 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines Jesus as the answer.

According to Acts 4:12, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

One of Christian music’s pioneers Andrae Crouch wrote a song that has endured the test of time, claiming that Jesus is the answer for the world today.

Jesus is the answer to the big picture questions of life, such as “where did we come from? Why are we here? What is our purpose in life? What is our destiny? Jesus is our Creator. He is the One who redeems us from sin and restores us to God. He is the way to eternal life.

Jesus is also the answer to our soul-searching questions such as “What is my greatest need?” “How can I enter the kingdom of God”? and “How can I be saved from my sin?” For these questions, Jesus is the answer.

Knowing Jesus as the answer to our soul-searching questions is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Focus On God-Jesus Our Risen Lord

john : April 18, 2017 5:15 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines Jesus as the Risen Lord.

According to Matthew 28:5, the angel said to the women who had come to the tomb of Jesus, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen just as he said, ‘Come and see the place where he lay. Then go and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.”

This is the invitation for us today-come and see the empty tomb. Investigate the claims of the resurrection. Note that the body of Jesus is missing. Examine the boldness of those who witnessed His resurrection to boldly proclaim the Gospel. Then, go and tell the good news of this event, because it fills the believing heart with hope. Jesus told His followers in John 14:19, “Because I live, you also will live.”

Knowing Jesus as our Risen Lord is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

A Nostalgic Night of Music and Celebration: Rainchildren and Jawbone Hill

stacey : April 17, 2017 10:37 am : Stacey Gagne, Staff Pages

I spent most of my college and post grad free time traveling between concert venues in the Philly and Lancaster area.  There was always a venue to catch live music… be it a coffee house, a college venue, church basement, school auditorium or other establishment.  The 90s in Lancaster County brimmed with talented local artists covering a wide variety of creative expression.   These were the days of The Friday Night Rock Jam on WJTL, Purple Door Festival, Java Casa, Cafe Angst, and more.

During that season; Rainchildren and Jawbone Hill were mainstays in the regional “alternative music” scene.   Besides their many regional shows; they spent a summer on a national tour playing festivals and other venues.    Both artists released numerous musical projects including CDs released by Smart Records, a division of Creative Ministries.

On May 6, Rainchildren and Jawbone Hill will once again be playing together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rainchilren’s CD “Feels Like Summer”.  This is the first time in many years that these two bands have taken stage together and it’s going to be an awesome night of nostalgia and great music from two talented and fun bands.   (Members of Rainchildren have been playing together as The Stars Are Spies, members of Jawbone Hill are uniting for this one time special event.)

I am excited for this throwback concert celebrating the talent of local artists.   This is another  excellent moment in our kick off season here at The Junction Center Landis Hall.  May 6 at 7:00 pm.  Junction Center Landis Hall .  Tickets at thejunctioncenter.com or 717-459-3701
