Colossians 1:15-17 (KJV) Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether
they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Hebrews 12:1 (KJV) Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Zechariah 12:1 (KJV) The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

Luke 15:10 (KJV) Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Luke 10:20 (KJV) Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Revelation 5:8 (KJV)
8  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

Have you seen  his preeminence you through the eyes of faith?

Christmas 2020 Second Advent Sunday Dec.6 Sermon: From a “Manger to His Majesty” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Posted in Uncategorized on December 6, 2020 by jacobschurch Notes : Welcome to my Journey                   “His Manger to His Majesty”

“Can you change yourself into some sort of God that you being human can commune with him? Not likely.”

God took the first step and became human while still deity. He loved us so much that he became flesh that he could save all flesh.

Why a manger?

John 1:14 (KJV)  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Luke 2:7 (KJV)  And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Hebrews 1:3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

2 Corinthians 4:18 (KJV)  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Swaddling Clothes.

Luke 2:12 (KJV) And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Who was Jesus Christ ?

Colossians 2:9 In him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,

Philippians 2:7 But made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

Hebrews 4:15  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Galatians 4:4  But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,

John 20:28  Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”

Isaiah 9:6-7 (KJV) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Good afternoon everyone, It has been a difficult decision as to wether to have church this week. We want to honor God and feed the flock. As you know we have been closed as some of our people tested positive for Covid. We are all wondering about Christmas. We have several options to accomplish our goals and have made a few changes. We have installed a transmitter and you will now be able to listen in the convenience of your car by simply dialing FM 107.1 on your car radio from anywhere on the church property. Just honk to say amen and give a thumbs up to share the peace. It’s to cold to listen outside as some have done in the past. After being closed for 14 days quarantine period we want to reopen safely and at 50 percent of capacity, meaning every other pew will be closed, and every one will be asked to wear a mask. If you have any reservations about going inside you may listen to the sermon in your car, watch the video at home on Facebook : Jacob’s Church – Fairfield, PA or on our website at We also will have a sound feed to the pavilion during the service if you do not receive signal in your car, This gives you five options to choose from. Please take advantage of at least one. Christmas series “From His Manger to His Majesty” starts Sunday, Second Advent Sunday, Dec.6th. Service begins at 9:30 Merry Christmas everyone., Pastor Richard

Announcement for Sunday May 17, 2020 Outside Service

Posted in Uncategorized on May 14, 2020 by jacobschurch

Tonight, May 11, 2020 our board at Jacob’s Church had a very difficult decision to make, concerning Sunday morning services. Many of our congregation, being rural , can’t tune in and aren’t online when we put our sermon up on is the internet. Feeding the flock is a principle of spiritual growth that is critical to the church as well as being obedient to the mission God has called us to.

Acts 2:42 (KJV) And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Hebrews 10:25 (KJV) Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

We as a board discussed four questions and sought counsel on all. The vote was unanimous with one abstaining member. Here are the notes from the board meeting. Pastor Richard

After consideration this is our plan.

1. Resuming Church Services:

a. Have we designed a plan that is safe? Yes

b. Have we designed a plan that is legal? Yes

c. Have we designed a plan that is socially acceptable to community? Yes

d. Have we designed a plan that we can all agree on? Yes

i. We should all agree as we all represent in unity what we agree on.

ii. A vote was taken on resuming church services outside beginning on May 17, 2020 at 9:30 a.m. The motion was made . A vote was taken – 12 voted for resuming services outside and 1 abstained.

iii. Sunday School classes will be cancelled until further notice. Children should stay with their parents.

iv. People should arrive in time for the service and not before in order to ensure we respect social distancing; we should avoid hugging and not socialize as we and do not “visit” from family to family.

v. People with underlying health issues should use caution and make the decision that best suits their situation; i.e.,

(1) attend the outside service using their own chairs, wear face masks, etc.;

(2) attend the outside service and stay in their car; or

(3) use social media to view the service from their home. We also recognize that the older population (over the age of 60) is more vulnerable and should also use caution. We will have services outside, with mask, social distancing, and no contact.

A Note From Pastor Richard for Friends and Church Members 04/03/20

Posted in Uncategorized on April 3, 2020 by jacobschurch

Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Letter from Pastor Richard Daughtridge 0,03,20

Hi Everyone,

I hope this letter finds you safe and healthy. I think we all can agree we have never witnessed anything like this pandemic. As a pastor I feel hopeless trying to help everyone through these times and yet there are things we all can do.

God told Joshua to fear not. That sounds like an impossible request and yet God doesn’t task us to do something outside of our capability. Okay then how can we conquer fear.

  1. Our positive confession builds up our faith.

My mom use to say, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”

I asked her, “Do you really believe that?”

Her answer was, “After I say it I believe it more.”

Saying things that agree with God’s word builds up our faith.

He says he has everything under control. It builds our faith when we acknowledge that he does.

2 Corinthians 10: 5 (KJV) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

  1. We can Pray and He has promised to Hear us.

Last week I got the directory out and started to pray for each family. Amazing the things that come to your mind as you make yourself pray. I am convinced we have a lot to pray for during these shut in days.

Pray for protection, provision, health, and what ever you are led by the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 6:18 (KJV) Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

  1. We can be sure to express our love to God.

Never miss an opportunity to worship our Lord. Just a thank you or an expression of your love to the Father is well deserved as He watches over us.


Hebrews 13:15-16 (KJV)   By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Having done all three I know my fears have started to dissipate. 

In conclusion , I just wanted take a moment and say I love you and if you need anything, food, encouragement, just to talk to someone, or you need errands run, or anything we are here for you. Phone 252-481-1188

Last week I ran an errand to my daughter’s house to deliver food for Robin and I was just to sit it on the porch and to leave. The family is trying to keep us at a distance because of Chris’s exposure in the medical world. I saw a little face come to the door and wave for me to come in. Riley placed her hands on her hips when I said I can’t. Through the glass I tried to say Granddaddy has to stay away for a while. She said I love you granddadd,y and with her hand pointing to her ear she said I will call you. She calls us everyday.

We all feel that same loss being apart as we are a church that has very much become a family. We hate being apart. It is as much a part of our Christian experience.

We will be trying to post some sermons and notes on both the Face Book Page and our website.

We do not know what the future holds but we know as we watch over our health and our families we have a friend and Savior, Jesus Christ, who is watching over us and deploying the angels of Heaven and God’s Holy Spirit on our behalf. We will be over this soon and I can’t wait until we are together again.

Love to All,

Pastor Richard Daughtridge, Pastor of Jacob’s Church
