CLIFTON BIBLE CHURCH HAS RESUMED GATHERING WITH A FEW NEW ARRANGEMENTS!
1. Someone will be assigned to open the door as you enter.
2. You may bring masks if desired or use one which will be provided - if
you feel it necessary.
3. We will not use the coffee/tea cups but use Styrofoam cups instead.
Spoons should only be used once and then thrown away.
4. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available.
5. Seating arrangements will give the required 6 foot separation. We
removed one table in each row and separated the tables to give the 6
feet required distance.
6. We should observe the no hugging or handshake principles.
These arrangements are for our good but, ultimately, members must take
personal responsibility for social distancing and other related actions. It
will surely be good to see each other again after such a long pause and even
though fellowship will be a little limited – it will still be uplifting. We
encourage all to attend but recognize that some may not yet feel comfortable
in gatherings, even if small in numbers. Please continue to pray that the
Lord will be honored and bless our time together.
Our little church is growing and God is stirring big things into many of our hearts. We hope you can join us in the journey.
Pastor Dave Gant and wife Connie

I pray this day finds us in remembrance of those brave men and women who gave their lives in service to our nation. In remembering them, I'm also reminded of our Great God and Savior and His sovereign hand of grace being upon us. Those brave men and women were chosen of God to be used in working out His will. That reminds me that God has also chosen us through His Son Christ Jesus for the purpose of serving Him, doing His will in these times. Just as our Heavenly Father chose those brave men and women finding them worthy to serve Him, He has found us worthy to serve Him. Our lives are important to Him, He has created us in Christ Jesus with His love and for His purpose. That purpose being to live our lives to exalt and glorify Him! Whether we realize it or not,our relationship with God can motivate others to seek Him. If those who know us could see how deeply He loves, comforts, and strengthens us, they would want to know Him as well. We should ask ourselves, when others watch us face trials, do they see our faith in the Savior's wisdom and blessings? Could they say our relationship with Him is not in words only, but a very real part of our life? We say we know Him and want to make Him known. If this is true, as we demonstrate our faith and love in obedience to Christ, He will work through you and I, and others will want to know Him. Lord help us to remember the great cost of our freedom in this nation now, and the great cost of our salvation. Help us to live lives worthy of You.
Your grateful pastor!
Adult Bible Study - Sunday mornings: 9:15-10:15am
Ron Quiggins is currently leading us through a study of Isaiah. Ron does very in depth, interesting and informative teachings. Come join us for an interesting treatment of this portion of God's Word purposed to reveal God and bring us into a closer relationship with Him (2 Peter 3:18).
"Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call upon him now while he is near. Let men cast off their wicked deeds; let them banish from their minds the very thought of doing wrong! Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy upon them, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon! This plan of mine is not what you would work out, neither are my thoughts the same as yours! For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than yours. As the rain and snow come down from heaven and stay upon the ground to water the earth, and cause the grain to grow and to produce seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry, so also is my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It shall accomplish all I want it to and prosper everywhere I send it."
Isaiah 55:6-11 TLB
Pastor Dave - 2nd Hour Sunday Mornings 10:30-11:30
Pastor Gant is currently leading us through II Timothy, one of three Pastoral Letters written by the apostle Paul.
II Timothy 1:5-11 NLT
"5 I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you.
6 This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you.
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
8 So never be ashamed to tell others about our Lord. And don’t be ashamed of me, either, even though I’m in prison for him. With the strength God gives you, be ready to suffer with me for the sake of the Good News.
9 For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.
10 And now he has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News.
11 And God chose me to be a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of this Good News."
II Timothy 4:1-5 NLT
"1 I solemnly urge you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will someday judge the living and the dead when he comes to set up his Kingdom:
2 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.
3 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.
4 They will reject the truth and chase after myths.
5 But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you."
We also meet every Wednesday evening from 7-8 pm and welcome everyone to join us for Bible study, prayer, worship and fellowship!
Pastor Gant will be leading us through a study of the book of Zechariah beginning 27 May 2020.
" In the study of Scripture, it is important to understand that scriptural revelation falls into well-defined periods of time. These are clearly separated and the recognition of these divisions and their divine purposes constitute one of the important factors in true and accurate interpretation of the Scriptures. These divisions are termed " dispensations", and in successive periods of time different dispensations can be observed. A dispensation can be defined as a stage in the progressive revelation of God constituting a distinctive stewardship or rule of life. Apart from the knowledge of dispensational truth, the believer will not be accurately adjusted to present purpose and will of God in the world. As we study we will see seven major dispensations in the scriptures that are evident. We are now in the sixth dispensation called grace and this time will end with the rapture of the church. The final dispensation will be the millennial kingdom of Christ. Along with this study of dispensations, we will also look at covenants God made with man during those different time periods.We look forward to seeing you!"
