There have so much going on at our church right now! Fortunately — as Pastor Mike’s sermon title tells us — All We Need Is Jesus. Thank you God!
One big step: our congregation voted unanimously to withdraw from the Covenant and go independent….non-affiliated…..nondenominational. We have God’s Holy Word as our doctrine and guide to follow and we don’t feel we need all the man-made rules and regulations of the various denominations.
Being a Christian is a way of life. Jesus said “if anyone serves me, he must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also” John 12:26. The Lord must be our first love, our best friend and our guide in all we do. With the Lord leading our thoughts and our steps what does it matter what we are called? There is only one church (Ephesians 4:3-6). I want to be called a Christian above all. I am a “member” of THE CHURCH; the only Church, the body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:27.
We are getting ready for “Five Day Club”, formerly called Daily Vacation Bible School. I attended one for many years when a youngster. We are hoping to have kids from the community to teach and nurture. We are giving away a girl’s and boy’s bike to two lucky kids. If we can have the chance to plant seeds of God in even one young heart, it will be worth it all.
Also we are starting our annual Christmas Shoe boxes early. Each donor pays $9 per box to cover the shipping. Then fill it with appropriate toys, school supplies, books, etc. I like to fill girls Christmas Shoe boxes around the age of first and second grade boxes.
Oh, by -the -way, our new name is
See you next week.
