Welcome to Morning Star!

Morning Star Christian Fellowship is composed of individuals who have made Jesus Christ Lord of their lives. We share our life together in Christian fellowship, seeking to strengthen each other in faith development through worship, teaching, preaching, fellowship and service. Beyond this, we strive to express the compassion of Jesus Christ to all persons along with our personal commitment to Christ-like living.

Who is wise and understanding among you?  Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.  Such 'wisdom' does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.  For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.

  • Mark 6:1-6

    A Prophet Without Honor

    Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.

    ?Where did this man get these things?? they asked. ?What?s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? Isn?t this the carpenter? Isn?t this Mary?s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren?t his sisters here with us?? And they took offense at him.

    Jesus said to them, ?A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.? He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.

    Jesus Sends Out the Twelve

    Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village.
