The number 40 has great significance in the Bible since it is mentioned 14 times. Some well known references are taken from the Word with regard to the number 40. Here are just a few from the New International Version.
The Flood "...I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights..." (Genesis 7:14)
The Manna "The Israelites ate manna for forty years..." (Exodus 16:35)
The Desert "For forty years, one year for each of the forty days you explored the land..."
Jonah "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned." (Jonah 3:4)
Fasting "After forty days and forty night, Jesus was hungry." (Matthew 4:2)
These verses,, along with others, served as the inspiration for the writing of the book
Forty Days of Purpose, by Rick Warren.
This New Year of 2013 marks 40 years since the founding of Parkview Christian Church and we plan to celebrate. Our theme for the year is "Homecoming"! Several activities and events are planned along with some special guests. We want to personally invite all of you to be a part of our "40th Anniversary - Homecoming"! Watch for announcements here online and in other church publications. We look forward to meeting you.
Youth Ministers Message
Here at Parkview we desire to see children of all ages come to a personal relationship with Christ, as simple as that sounds it's not our complete desire. We also want to challenge parents along with the children to gain a deeper understanding on God and His plan for our lives. We also want to come along side of parents and help them in fostering the spiritual growth in their children. According to scripture the parents are to be the main scripture teachers in their home.
Deuteronomy 6: 4-9 says, “Hear, O Israel The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Parkview wants nothing more then to see whole households come to a deeper and fuller understanding of God and His everlasting love for us. We will encourage the students not to simply know about the Christian life, but make living the Christian life a daily lifestyle.
In Christ Love, David
