United In Love and Faith (Page 2)

Worship together at WEAG.ONLINE : Sundays 9 am & 11 am. Wednesdays 7:30 pm.

We’ve replaced our homepage during this unusual time of impact due to COVID-19 so that we may better keep you informed of changes, needs and opportunities to help others. Our staff is working hard to serve you during this time! Please use our Directory to email any of our staff. Need prayer? Please email wecare@weag.org


Ephesians 2:6 (NIV) – And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the Heavenly realms in Christ Jesus… Our salvation story is just the beginning.  Resurrection power enables us to overcome our personal limitations and go on to do amazing things with God.  We can experience spiritual growth,  connect to a divine calling,  and become a change agent in this world.  We get to reflect the vision of the final Kingdom that the Old Testament…


Romans 8:11 (NIV) – And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you,  He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit,  who lives in you…  We live in a world filled with death and disease.  In spite of having the best medical knowledge in the history of mankind,  only Jesus has power over death.  One day,  Christ will return and reset the world…


Hebrews 9:27 (MSG) – Everyone has to die once,  then face the consequences  (after that comes judgment – NLT).  The Resurrection validates Christ’s Message.  It means that all of Jesus’  “You-have-heard-but-I-tell you”  sermons were,  indeed,  true  (Matt. 5).  Without it,  we have no redeemer,  just another prophet.  Without it we have no definitive truth,  just another philosophy,  just another point of view.  The Resurrection unmasks false beliefs.  It warns you NOT to risk your eternity on them.  It proves that…


I Corinthians 15:13-22, focus verse 20 (NIV) – But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead…  The Resurrection validates Christ’s identity.  It was God’s giant exclamation point to the whole world that Jesus was,  indeed,  the Son of God.  Jesus does have power to take away sins.  Every aspect of our faith in Jesus is rooted,  connected,  catalyzed,  and proved through the events we remember during Easter.  The Resurrection proves that there is life after death and that Jesus…


Acts 3:15 (NLT) – You killed the author of life,  but God raised Him from the dead.  And we are witnesses of this fact! The Resurrection was the game-changer.  It was not a tag-on.  No,  it gave meaning to the crucifixion.  It brought resolution to it.  It turned grief into celebration.  It was the  “rest of the story.”  Without the resurrection,  the story of Jesus ends in tragic death;  but salvation does not end at the cross,  the place of…

MADE NEW: Your Discipleship Journey

It is our desire for you to learn more about Jesus in your own way and at your own pace. With that in mind, our Discipleship Team is busy aggregating an assortment of videos, books, podcasts, lessons, articles, activities and more across a wide range of topics, interests, and levels of spiritual maturity. This growing library of resources will feature a mix designed for personal use online, in small groups, in classrooms or with mentors! Our discipleship team is also ready to…


Isaiah 40:27-31 (NLT) How can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?  How can you say God ignores your rights?  Have you never heard?  Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God,  the Creator of all the earth.  He never grows weak or weary.  No one can measure the depths of His understanding.  He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.  Even youths will become weak and tired.  But those who trust in…

Easter & COVID Update from Pastor Shane

From: Shane SchlesmanDate: Thu, Apr 16, 2020 at 6:22 PMSubject: Weekly Update from Pastor ShaneTo: YOU Hey WEAG Family, God is doing amazing things in the midst of this crisis. Another 60 people came to Christ on Easter Sunday bringing the total to approximately 200 people who have made a choice for Jesus at weag.online in the past four weeks. Our attendance and views for Palm and Easter Sunday services totaled 12,320 devices – God is working! Our Wednesday night…


Psalm 139:23-24 (NIV)  Search me,  O God,  and know my heart;  test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me,  and lead me in the way everlasting.  How easily do you take offense?  “The offended ones feel the need to offend back those who they think have offended them,  creating defensiveness on the part of the presumed offenders,  which often becomes a new offense—ad infinitum.  There seems to be no way out of…


Psalm 9:9-10 (NLT)   The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,  a refuge in times of trouble.  Those who know your name trust in you,  for you,  O Lord,  do not abandon those who search for you.  The Lord never forsakes us.  He will  “not ignore the cry of the afflicted”  (vs. 12).  This truth can be a stepping stone out of our pit of despair.  When life morphs,  when familiar and comfortable routines change and leave us anxious…


Psalm 16:1 (NLT)   Keep me safe,  O God for I have come to you for refuge.  This psalm is often referred to as  “A Prayer of Messiah.”  As you read through it,  you will gain insight into the kinds of things Christ may have prayed as He walked the Via Delarosa—I will not be shaken;  You will not abandon me;  You are at my right hand (vs. 8).  As Christ hung on the cross,  He found strength by focusing…

John 19:38 (NLT) Afterward Joseph of Arimathea, who had been a secret disciple of Jesus (because he feared the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate for permission to take down Jesus’ body. When Pilate gave permission, Joseph came and took the body away. We call it Silent Saturday,  when we sit and wait and hope.  Of course,  we know Sunday is coming;  but the disciples knew only that Jesus was dead,  and so were their hopes and dreams.  Remember:  faith is something…


Mark 15:34 (The Message) At noon the sky became extremely dark. The darkness lasted three hours. At three o’clock, Jesus groaned out of the depths, crying loudly, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” Have you ever felt abandoned?  Sometimes when God doesn’t seem to be showing up,  we hear only silence.  Yet,  God’s goodness is most manifest–but we are blind to it.  Hold onto your faith,  because God will reveal Himself…

Mark 14:61-62 (The Message) In the middle of this, the Chief Priest stood up and asked Jesus, “What do you have to say to the accusation?” Jesus was silent. He said nothing. The Chief Priest tried again, this time asking, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed?” Jesus said, “Yes, I am, and you’ll see it yourself:The Son of Man seatedAt the right hand of the Mighty One,Arriving on the clouds of heaven.” Earlier,  Jesus had taught the…

Don’t Miss the Miracle

Don’t Miss the Miracle Guest Blog Post Written By Tracey Kelly I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how we tend to miss the miracles in our lives. For instance, I had a conversation with someone recently who encouraged me on how much I’ve grown and how far I’ve come over the last few years. My immediate response to her was how I tend to miss the miracle of that because it took so much time. It didn’t just happen at…


John 12:1-9 (NLT) Six days before the Passover celebration began, Jesus arrived in Bethany, the home of Lazarus—the man he had raised from the dead. 2 A dinner was prepared in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, and Lazarus was among those who ate with him. 3 Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar of expensive perfume made from essence of nard, and she anointed Jesus’ feet with it, wiping his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance. 4 But Judas Iscariot, the disciple who would…


John 11:45-53 (NLT) 45 Many of the people who were with Mary believed in Jesus when they saw this happen. 46 But some went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. 47 Then the leading priests and Pharisees called the high council together. “What are we going to do?” they asked each other. “This man certainly performs many miraculous signs. 48 If we allow him to go on like this, soon everyone will believe in him. Then the Roman army will come and destroy both…

Exodus 34: 29 (NLT)  When Moses came down Mount Sinai carrying the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, he wasn’t aware that his face had become radiant because he had spoken to the Lord.  “Spending time in the presence of God imparts the glory of God which is reflected to others.” Draw near to God and you will experience transformation. People will notice something different about you. Wisdom and discernment, compassion and understanding, so many of…

Exodus 33:14 (MSG)  God said (to Moses), “My presence will go with you. I’ll see the journey to the end.”  Moses unburdened his heart to the Lord. Leading so many people into the Promised Land was a God-sized task that needed more than good ideas and efficient leadership skills. This was God’s work and Moses needed God’s Presence to go before Him every step of the journey. God has a task for each one of us. Our spiritual gifts will…

LIFT – Ladies in Fellowship TogetherStudying Soulspeak online via Zoom, led by Sue SchlesmanMonday April 13 and Monday April 27 For the Zoom link and more information, contact:Abi McCamant | abimccamant@gmail.com


Exodus 20:21 (MSG)  The people kept their distance while Moses approached the think cloud where God was.  The people stood far away from the “thick darkness” (KJV) where God was because of their guilt but Moses drew near because of his confidence. Some people are so afraid of God because they have not met Jesus, “the image of the invisible God” (Col. 1:15) who loved us so much that He died on the cross to purchase our freedom from sin.…

Exodus 19:8 (NIV)  And all the people responded together, “We will do everything the Lord has commanded.”  The Children of Israel did not know the true state of their hearts. Though they declared their consecration, their actions throughout their wilderness journey revealed a never-ending tendency to disobey the Lord and complain about everything. Nevertheless, the Lord led them and kept them and protected them like a father for his children listening for faith to take root and transform them into…
