We, The People…


Good morning, Family:

Sending everyone hugs, high-fives, and fist bumps. I truly hope that you all are healthy and well. The world as we know is changing every day. I’m not sure if life will ever go back to how it used to be. We have learned important lessons on cleanliness and being cognizant of human contact. The remnant of those lessons will probably be with us forever.

One thing I am so excited about and looking forward to is being in corporate worship together in one place.

May, We, The People, have a new normal of global worship of our Lord. May, We, The People, with one voice will lift up the name of the Lord. Msy, We, The People, will sing the praises of the Lord.

Psalm 27 

New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 27

Of David.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour[a] me,
it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

Father, be gloried in our praise to you. Hear our hearts as we lift them in praise and glory to you. Selah

In Christ alone,

Rev. Marcia Davis

Hope on the Horizon…


Good morning, Beloved Family:

I hope you and your family and friends are fairing well, during this unprecedented time in our world and country and community. One thing that always gives me hope is the resilience of the human spirit.

It warms my heart to see how communities and neighborhoods are working together. Be sure, every chance you get, to tell those who help, “Thank You.” So many industries are still moving, albeit at a much smaller pace.

I personally would like to recognize everyone in helping services, healthcare service, food and grocery service, and the transportation industries. I’ve never been more grateful to see trucks on the road and trains moving down the tracks.

A special thank you to all of the parents who have had to turn their homes into full time schools, hospitals, gourmet kitchens and entertainment centers. May God continue to give you strength.

I encourage us all to continue to place our hope and trust in God. God still gives us all the strength, grace, knowledge, wisdom, ingenuity and creative thought to go through each day. May we never take credit for what God is doing. We are all vessels to be used for the good of man and ultimately the glory of God.

Psalm 71:1-5

New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 71

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
    let me never be put to shame.
In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me;
    turn your ear to me and save me.
Be my rock of refuge,
    to which I can always go;
give the command to save me,
    for you are my rock and my fortress.
Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
    from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.

For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord,
    my confidence since my youth.

Go in peace and hope, while praising and serving the Lord.

Rev. Marcia Davis

One Day At A Time…


Good morning, Family:

I pray all is well with you and yours. May God continue to lead you and guide you in everything you do and in the same manner may we all be sensitive to God’s leading.

Remember, Family, just take one day and one moment at a time. Be thankful for each day. Glorify God every day when you wake up and when you lay down in the evening.

Psalm 1

Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

May the Lord continue to bless us and keep us, in His perfect Peace. Go in the same divine Peace,  while praising and serving the

Lord. Rev. Marcia Davis

His Eye Is On the Sparrow…


Good morning, Beloved Family:

God is forever faithful. He knows what happens to every sentient being on this earth. God watches the lilies of the field, the animals that come and go on the ground, the creatures that call the river, lakes and seas their home, and even the little sparrows that fly through the sky. There is not an instant that God does not know about. Every minute is accounted for.

I know right now, a great deal of the world has questions about what the future will hold. I encourage you to trust God. God loves us more than we can imagine. I also encourage each of us to make divine choices.

Make choices that change the balance of the atmosphere. Make spiritual choices that makes us winners in the unseen battles in unknown realms. Make choices that move the pendulum to love instead of hate. Every decision we make adds weight to the scales. What are you adding?

Some folks may say that God has a funny way of showing how much he loves us. We have to always remember that free will and choice were given to us a long time ago. We must be willing to take responsibility for our choices, both good and bad. Search your heart, your motive, and your hand. Ask God to purify your worship and to cleanse your heart of anything that may move the scales the wrong way.

Matthew 6:25-34 

English Standard Version (ESV)

Do Not Be Anxious

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?[a] 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Go in peace, family. The Lover of our soul is watching over us.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Rev. Marcia Davis

Shine, Jesus, Shine…

Let Your Light Shine

Good morning, Family:

I praise God for each and every one of you. I’m praying continually for your health, strength and peace in the Lord.

I’m sure, by now, you have been affected by the corona virus in one way or another. One of the amazing results, of all the changes taking place, is that people are coming together, even though we are isolated. It’s incredible what happens when we slow down just a little. People are working together, for the common good and well-being of everyone.

Whether it is standing outside the window of an elderly person and singing them a song, or sending flowers just to say, “I’m thinking about you,” or may the act of picking up phone, instead of texting and telling someone you love them. People seem to be nicer and more in touch with their heart and spirit.

What I noticed, more than anything, is that people are allowing Jesus to shine through them.  Praise God!!! I pray that this continues, even after our lives go back to normal. Ask God how you can be used in a big way to Shine.

Matthew 22:36-40

New International Version (NIV)

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 5:16 

New International Version (NIV)

16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

May we continue to Shine Big for Jesus and for Love. May the peace of the Lord be with you all.

Rev. Marcia Davis

At Home…


Good morning, Family:

This Sunday, our church worshipped via Facebook live. We had the chance to enjoy worship through song, through tithes and offering, and through hearing our pastor share what the Lord put on his heart. As I made comments throughout the cyber service, I also noticed that people who normally dont come to our physical church location were joining in worship and thanking our Pastor for offering worship online, as their schedule did not permit them to attend in person.

God feels the same way about us. He wants to spend time with us, by any means necessary. So often, we make excuses as to why we dont have time to spend with God. I encourage you to be creative in your time with the Lord.

Due to the corona virus, many of us cannot gather together in one building, but we can still worship God on our own. Try having worship time outside in nature. Take your computer, or phone, with you and watch, or listen, to your favorite church service or worship songs.

Find a beautiful tree, or your favorite place, and have prayer and worship time. Let the birds be your background singers, as you sing praises to the Lord and read your favorite scripture passages aloud.

Maybe you can’t go outside. While you are inside, doing your activities, begin to sing your favorite worship and praise songs. Read the bible out loud or listen to the bible as you work.

What about the children? Have you ever been to vacation bible school? Find fun ways and songs to teach children about the Lord.

For traditional school, if possible, get together with your neighbors, as long as they are healthy, and teach school in groups. Allow the kids to go to one neighborhood’s house for reading and writing and maybe another neighbors house for science and math. Have physical education as a group. Remember “Field Day” when we had different fun activities and games? Why not have Field Day Fridays?

Be in prayer every morning. Ask the Lord to give you guidance and creativity on how to schedule each day and week? If applicable, get input from your children. How do they like to learn? Are they visual learners, or do they learn better from reading?  Be open to thinking outside of the box?

No matter what, keep God first. Even though, temporarily, many of us aren’t able to attend church together in a building, please dont forget to worship God with your tithes and offerings. During these times, especially, churches will be  ministering more than usual, due to the need for food banks, donated clothes and other important resources. In John 21, what did Jesus charge Peter to do? FEED MY SHEEP…

John 21:17

New International Version (NIV)

17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love. Go, in peace, while praising and serving the Lord.

Rev. Marcia Davis

Be Blessed…


Good morning, Family:

First, I believe we all need a global Deep Breath. It seems like the news about the Corona virus has taken over the world. In each generation there has been a disease that threatens the lives and/or health of it’s people. Diseases like poliomyelitis (polio), small pocks, chicken pocks, plague, etc.

I truly encourage everyone to be safe, but also never forget that you are children of God. Follow the instructions given by health authorities, but also remember who is the Author of our Lives.

Proverbs 3:5-6 

King James Version (KJV)

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be blessed, Family. Dont be afraid. Be vigilant in your health, but keep your face turned toward your God.

I love you, with an amazing Love.

Rev. Marcia Davis

Just A Little Walk…


Good morning, Family:

This morning, I was thinking about different people, in the bible, that were close to God. The Word of God goes as far to say that they “walked” with God.

Genesis 5:21-24 

Common English Bible (CEB)

21 When Enoch was 65 years old, he became the father of Methuselah. 22 Enoch walked with God. After Methuselah’s birth, Enoch lived 300 years; and he had other sons and daughters. 23 In all, Enoch lived 365 years. 24 Enoch walked with God and disappeared because God took him.

When I intentionally get up in the morning and start my day with Jesus, I feel so much better.  Can you imagine what it was like to walk with God, before the impartation of the Holy Spirit?

Genesis 6:9 

New International Version (NIV)

Noah and the Flood

This is the account of Noah and his family.

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.

Go in peace, family. Cherish the precious moments we get to spend intimately with God, until we see him face to face. 

In His love,

Rev. Marcia Davis

More Than Anything…


Good morning, Family:

How great is our God! There are not enough words and ways in which we can tell God, “I love you.” As worshippers of the Most High God, we dedicate our lives as acts and vessels of worship.

Believe it or not, as Christians, our life is not about us.

Saints of God, posture your life as an act of worship and adoration. As you sing and meditate on today’s worship song, truly take in what you are telling Jesus. Our life is a Love Song back to God.

Revelation 4:9-11 

New King James Version (NKJV)

Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

11 “You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.”

Go in peace, while praising and serving our Precious Lord.

Rev. Marcia Davis

It Is Well…


Good morning, Family:

I know and understand that life is sometimes not easy. We ask God, “Why?” We ask for the purpose of it all. The one thing we have to remember, as a family of believers, is that even when we have questions we have to continue our faith walk.

We easily forget all the times that God was there for us. We forget all the times that God wrapped his arms around us when we were going through our trials and tribulations. In those moments we forget to tell God, “Thank You for your faithfulness.”

We must trust God and trust the Process. Sometimes, we have to keep walking in faith,  Even if the pain, fear and hurt makes us want to turn from God. Even if others tell us to walk away and curse God, we must remember that God is faithful. Let it be well with your soul that God is with you, even when you think He’s not. God is able….

Psalm 46 

King James Version (KJV)

46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Keep the faith. Be strong. Dont let go. God is walking with you. You are NOT ALONE.

Rev. Marcia Davis
