PASTOR JEFF'S WEEKLY CHALLENGE
As you browse these pages, you will see many things our website brings to God's ministry. We have endeavored to bring hope to the lost, comfort to the infirmed and broken in spirit and joy to Christians. We have provided several sermons to strengthen your walk with God and many lessons to help you grow in Bible knowledge. Our choir music will lift your praises to God.
You have my personal invitation to visit and experience Terra Vista Baptist. Please feel free to call me if I can answer any questions about our church or provide guidance to any problem or concern.
Terra Vista Baptist Church
Thank you for honoring us by visiting our new website. By your visit, you demonstrate what we have all come to know - we are all part of a new trend in communications. The Internet has changed the way we live and communicate. It is no longer the domain of the young but has spread to all age groups. The once feared computer is now common in nearly all homes and is found in schools, libraries and all businesses. With the advent of Wi-Fi, we can take our laptops to restaurants or parks and communicate via the Internet. The workplace is no longer just the office but wherever we want to work. We have replaced snail mail with e-mail, We no longer use the Yellow Pages but search on-line for the services we need. Need a bargain? Find a church? Try a Google search. Yes, the way we communicate is changing and changing fast. This is not something to fear but embrace. The Internet, properly used, can be a blessing to the church in fulfilling God's work. It is for this very reason that we created our website.

Hello everyone and let me take a moment to say, I realize it has been a few weeks since my challenge has changed, but I pray that you continue to check our page in order that you can be reminded of what what is taking place.
It has been a slow week in the renovation part of our church, now much went on after Monday. Our sheet rock contractors were 8 sheet short and has to stop early on Monday, and didn't show back up until Thursday, but they were proceeded with a mission of completion. It reminded me, Change always starts in your mind. The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel influences the way you act. Rick Warren
I think that there is a change that is taking place within our church. I believe there is an excitement that hasn't been here in some time. You may ask, how can you tell? I see it in the face of each one of you. Now I know that sometimes it difficult to understand how I may see that. But remember, I look at most of you 3 times a week, and there is just a little glow in you that say's, God is moving in this place and I'm excited about it. Rick Warren also said, There is no growth without change, no change without fear or loss and no loss without pain. So don't fear, God is in control, and we may have a few bumps along the way, but God will be glorified in all the changes that is taking place within the Church. My challenge to you this week is simply, pray, pray, pray.
Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house, and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord. Haggai 1:8 (KJV) May God have his will and way in the church forever.
