Here at Monroe CH Church, we are a family of believers. We want to capture the hearts of every generation and join together in pressing “toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14). Thank you for joining with us to magnify and worship the Lord today. If you don’t already have a home church, we would love to have you with us each week. Along with our mid-week service on Tuesdays, we also have small groups on Tuesdays. We are certain that we have something suited for you.

Words for Life
“Don’t doubt in the darkness what you knew to be true in light.” I heard that on You Tube the other day. It really resonated with me. My car is red-always has been, always will be. At night, in darkness, my perception of its color may change; but, it is only my perception that changes-the color remains the same. I recently watched “Soul Surfer.” In it, they have a Bible study. During one of the lessons, the leader tells the class, “If you’re dealing with something that’s hard to handle or just plain doesn’t make sense, do whatever it takes to get some perspective. Talk to your parents, a friend…pray about it. From a different point of view, you’ll often discover that things aren’t quite as confusing as they seem.” No doubt God has made you a promise. At times, when it seems as if you’re going through a dark night, it may be hard to see that God is fulfilling His promise to you. But, remember, God’s promise has not changed. Psalm 34:5-6,8 NLT says, “Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; He saved me from all my troubles. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him!” Don’t doubt what the Lord has promised you. He has a will and a purpose. Even if your circumstances have changed, God is still the same.
