Join Us AS We Remember The Heroes Of 911

Posted in Annoucement, Sermons, Weekly Bell Ringer on September 8, 2016 by jacobschurch

This Sunday September 11, 2016 will be the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. We will honor the victims, heroes, and their families as we remember them in our prayers and words of condolences.

Let’s not forget to give a hearty thank you to their comrades, all the first responders, the fireman, the police, the soldiers and the medical staff in our lives today.

We also will worship and give thanks to God for keeping us safe through these days of evil aggression.

We, at Jacob’s Church, will be having a special Sunday service in which we will remember them.

Testimonies of that day will be shared by:

Dwayne Smith, who was part of the Secret Service Team that secured the White House on 911. He was assigned to protect the presidential family and the White House Staff and was on duty that day. He’ll share some of those memories.

Rori Cannon Daughtridge, now Pastor Daughtridge’s daughter-in law, did not go to work that day. She normally walked by the Trade Center but from the riverside in terror she watched the second plane crashed into the tower. Her future husband, Ryan, was in Africa calling everyone he knew to find out if she was alright. Though they we estranged for two years he knew the love of his life was somewhere near that Trade Center. Rori can tell the rest of the story.

Pastor Richard will sing ‘Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning.

The sermon for Sunday will be, “Out of the Rubble Stood a Cross” by Pastor Richard.

We will have a prayer for the families of the 911 tragedy, for the first responders that protect us today and for America, the nation we love.

Service will begin at 9:30 AM Directions 495 Harbaugh Valley Road just off Rt.16 between Blue Ridge Summit and Emmittsburg. Proceed east on Route 16 out of Waynesboro, after Blue Ridge Sportsman club turn right at next road. Church is just up the road on right. Look for sign on Rt.16 and Harbaugh Valley Road.

Down For The CountDown for the Count ”   Pentecost Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge May 15, 2016

Round One: Crucifixion

Round Two: Resurrection

Round Three: Holy Spirit Sent  

 

“Now get up !”

 

Leviticus 23:16-17 Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath [i.e. of Passover], and then present an offering of new grain to the LORD. From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of the finest flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offering of firstfruits to the LORD.

 

John 4:34 (KJV)  Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

 

Numbers 28:26 On the day of firstfruits, when you present to the LORD an offering of new grain during the Festival of Weeks (i.e. Pentecost), hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.

 

Acts 1:1-5 (KJV)  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2  Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3  To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4  And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5  For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Acts 1:8 (KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

John 14:26 (KJV)  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Romans 8:11, “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.”                                               “Now get up!”

Special Conclusion this Sunday.” From a Thorn to a Throne” April 3

Posted in Annoucement, Events, Sermons, Weekly Bell Ringer on April 1, 2016 by jacobschurch

From a Thorn To A Throne
This Sunday we will conclude our sermon series “The Crown of His Majesty”. We will take the crown of thorns off the cross, We’ll remove the stone left at the foot of the cross, typical of the one thrown at the woman caught in adultery. The sign, at the top of the cross, will no longer read,” King of the Jews”, but “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”. The little sign we placed at the bottom of the cross, “I did this for you”, will now take on a new meaning. He will never again hang on an old rugged cross nor wear a crown of thorns, but sit on a throne at God the Father’s right hand. Our sermon this Sunday, “From a Thorn to a Throne,” will take us in our journey to Heaven where we’ll see what the Apostle John saw. A Risen Savior being crowned by those that love Him. We continue to gather stones, not to throw, but precious jewels for a Crown of His Majesty. Service starts at 9:30 Sunday morning April 3rd. Come prepared to worship. Jacob’s church is located at 495 Harbaugh Valley Road, just off Rt 16 between Waynesboro and Emmetsburg, Maryland. Look for sign on Rt. 16.

Join us for the three sermon conclusion of “The Crown of His Majesty” a sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Crown of Thorns bulletin For the past weeks we’ve followed Jesus along the Sea of Galilee. Wow, what a trip. He disarmed the stone throwers, healed the blind, made the lame to walk, raised the dead, cleansed the lepers and unfolded a plan for the salvation of man. Does such deserve to wear a crown of thorns and be nailed to a cross?

Our world seems out of control at times.

The Apostle John in Revelation 5 said he wept when no one was found worthy to open the book which contained the power to end and vindicate the evil that man had allowed to spiral out of control. He was comforted to be told that The Lion of Judah was ready to take the world back. Looking for this big Lion he saw only a lamb.

       This week we see the Lamb led down the road of a king to be his execution. Then we realize that the very Passover lamb is in fact the Lion. He will die as a lamb but be raised into a Lion after three days. In the last three sermons we will replace the crown of thorns with a new crown that we will give Him.                                                                                                  

           Like the wise Kings of Christmas, we will bring our gifts fit for a King. “The King is Coming” is an appropriate title for this week’s sermon. Sunday 20th I will introduce the King of the Jews, The Lamb of God. Sunday 27th after he was unjustly put to death we will see the Father raise him from the dead. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah will prevail. Then on April 3rd we will Crown him with many crowns. Don’t miss a single service. Special music in each service. Services begin at 9:30 at Jacobs Church 495 Harbaugh Valley Road just off Route 16 between Waynesboro Pa. and Emmetsburg Md .

“Can anything good come out of Nazareth ?” part one of sermon series “The Crown of His Majesty” , by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Court Clerk :   “Call your First Witness.”

John 1:46 (KJV) 
And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

Luke 4:16-21   And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. [17] And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, [18] The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, [19] To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. [20] And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. [21] And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Matthew 11:4-5

Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: [5] The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

Luke 7:22

Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

Matthew 20:30-34

And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. [31] And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. [32] And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you? [33] They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. [34] So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Mark 10:46-52

And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. [47] And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. [48] And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. [49] And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. [50] And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. [51] And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. [52] And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
