It is also a moment to be refreshed and encouraged by the teaching, preaching and songs about the great and mighty God who loves us with an everlasting love. In addition to honoring the Lord and fellowshipping with Saints of the Highest:

  • We share and distribute our possessions among one another (Acts 4:32-37)
  • We are trained and taught the doctrines of Christ and his apostles (Matt. 28:18-20)
  • We fellowship and exercise our spiritual gifts among each other (Heb. 10:24-25)
  • We willfully submit and are accountable to our ministry leaders (Heb:13:17)

As we prepare to enter into the house of the Lord, let us also prepare to be trained and discipled in the things of Christ (Matt. 28:20). The “Commissionerhas commissioned all his followers to assemble and be taught as a means to properly equip us with the tools need to carry out his order.

Giving Thanks to the Lord

Giving thanks to the Lord is his will. We are obliged to be mindful, grateful and humbled to the Lord for the many things we are afforded. His grace, his love, his providence, his provisions are all displayed in the person of his son the Lord Jesus Christ. The scriptures state “that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation” 2 Cor. 5:19. God did not spare even his only begotten son that we might be able to experience his precious love and intimate fellowship.


 I Thess 5:18
"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you"

So, as believers, no matter our traditions or customs, let us lift up our family and friends, situations and circumstances in prayer and thanksgiving to the Lord for his grace and mercy.

From our New Berean family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving

Blessings and honor to the Lord our God for the person, life and legacy of Reba Bernard. Today, Sister Bernard (as she was fondly called) was called home into eternity to be with the Lord.

Ricks Sr, his family and Harold Jackson (and family) to establish, serve in and support this new local New Testament ministry.

Reba served as one of the original ministry Trustees. Her sweet spirit and quiet personality made her attractive and a “fan favorite” church mother. She was blessing to the many people who met her. Her faithfulness and love for the Lord was always an encouragement.

She leaves to cherish her memories and legacy: son Howard Lee Bernard and daughter Beverly Bernard-Cruz and grandson, Julien. She was preceded in death by husband Howard, Sr. and two sons Darryl Trenton and Timothy Kelly Bernard
