September 2013

 

A beloved sister in Christ gave me a copy of the Bible Broadcasting Network's Monthly Newsletter recently and in it was this incredible quote, from an anonymous source, about God's Eternal Word…

This Book Contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, doom of sinners, and happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christian’s charter. Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is it’s Grand Subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given to you in life, will be opened at the Judgment and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor and condemns all who trifle with its holy contents.”

It was too good to not share with you, especially since two of our upcoming messages in September will be focused on the “pure milk” of “the living and enduring word of God” (1 Peter 1:23 & 2:2). So beloved, grab your Bibles and join us this month as we explore the only inerrant, infallible, and inspired source of revelation in the world…Christ is it’s Grand Subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end!!!



August 2013

Summer is beginning to wind down and that means it's time for our normal Wednesday evening activities to wind back up again… especially AWANA. Do you know what AWANA stands for? It is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.

Since the 1950's, they have been committed to helping “churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ.” Each week, over 2 million kids participate in AWANA around the world; and in a recent survey of 6 year alumni, 92.7 percent still attended church at least weekly as adults! Also, I have found that the AWANA ministry is a very successful outreach to young parents who are looking for safe character building experiences for their kids.

I, therefore, believe there are two keys to the growth of our AWANA program this year: Team-Teaching and Community Awareness. Team-Teaching means that instead of having just one teacher or volunteer for each area, we have several who rotate every other or every couple of Wednesday evenings, allowing each one to remain fresh and also to allow them to be fed in adult Bible Studies. Community Awareness means that it is up to us, the members, to spread the word of our exciting AWANA program. Yes, we have a new sign and we will certainly run some advertising, but it will be the personal invitations that will lead to new kids and parents.

So, please prayerfully consider, if the Spirit is leading you to give 1 or 2 Wednesdays a month to God's ervice, as well as directing you to young families searching for a genuine church ready to share the love of Christ!!!!
