GREETINGS and WELCOME. THANK YOU for visiting our website. 

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Sometimes we take prayer for granted. Since we are not actually seeing God when we pray, it is sometimes hard to imagine it as a real interaction. And God knows what we are going to ask for or talk about anyway. Over time, it might become easy to slack off on praying. But here’s what we need to remember about prayer. According to Ephesians 2:18, “For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father”. Through Jesus. In addition, Hebrews 4:16 tells us, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”. We now have direct access to God. We need no man as intercessor. We can come before His very throne to express our praise and thanks and concerns. And this access is only made possible because Jesus Christ, the Son of God, gave his body to die on a cross for us. His blood paid the price that gives us access to the Father Himself. Prayer is not something that is just expected of us by God, it is a privilege Christians enjoy because Jesus shed His blood for it. Next time we think that we have better things to do than pray, let’s remember that time with the Father was a gift given to us by His Son.

If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me.

One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18.

If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Scott Long
