Everyone Can Serve

Look for opportunities to serve; don't wait to be asked!  Remember, you can serve without being a part of an "official" ministry. We all can:

  • Extend the word of welcome, whether or not we are official greeters
  • Be listening caring friends, whether or not we are offical lay counselors
  • Be ready to give reason for the hope that is in us, whether or not we are on the evengelism team
  • Be enthusiastic participants and ready to give a hand, whether or not we are on the planning or cleanup committees.Come and meet people

CONNECT WITH CONNECTIONS

Many of us who love the church, have found that one of the most powerful life changing aspects of the church is being in a group of people that help and encourage us along the way. In fact most churches that are experiencing real growth have discovered that groups are really the way to help people with their spiritual journey and ministry. To this end the Vision Team has been wrestling with the best way to launch some long-term groups that are shaped and centered in encouraging each participant and educating them con-cerning the themes and message of the Bible. So we are going to begin these kinds of groups in what we have formally called for a number of years discipleship classes. We would like to recognize the function of the groups by calling them Connections. The emphasis being that of connecting with others and establishing the kind of contact that issues in accountability and its resultant fruit i.e. peace, joy, love. We expect some evolution in how these groups operate. What we do have is a beginning date: Sunday September 21st. More information will be coming up. (Watch weekly bulletins) This is going to be a significant opportunity for you and yours. It will include all ages. There will be new groups forming for those who consider themselves young adults that will be meeting at different times and perhaps in different loca-tions. If you feel disconnected this may be your time to find that connection in your church.

Working Pastor

We have started on a new year. Research does show us that 82% of people who make resolutions fail to keep them. That seems rather pessimistic. Perhaps most people set their sights a bit too high when it comes to changing things in their lives that are bothering them. Here are the top ten things people make resolutions about: 1. Lose weight 2. Get organized 3. Spend less and save more 4. Enjoy life to the fullest 5. Stay fit 6. Learn something new 7. Quit smoking 8. Help others 9. Fall in love 10. Spend more time with family. Interesting list isn’t it?

We all know that habits are difficult to break and new good habits are difficult to begin with consistency. This being said I would hate to think that we are stuck. Perhaps it would help if we included the Lord in our plans for life changes. Having God as a motivator might get us down the road a bit farther on those issues we benefit from changing in our lives. A good motivator is to include another per-son as a support. Having someone you give permission to check up on you might very well be all the incentive you need to continue a new good activity in your life or discontinue a poor one.

Why should we bother to make improve-ments in our lives? For one reason God wishes us to grow and become more produc-tive. When we know there are things holding us back it is always good to do something about them. This is true whether we have the New Year as a motivation or not. But since this is that time of the year why not take advantage of it. I know many of you will respond by saying I have tried that and it didn’t work (you are part of the 82%). Try it again. And this time put God in the mix. Pray about what needs to change in your life and then look to Jesus to give you whatever it might take to see it through. After all aren’t we as believers called by God to make commitments to Him and then keep them? Is there really any difference between making commitments and what I have been suggesting? My son Kyle suggested the family do a 7 Minute Workout to improve our physical conditioning. He became for those of us that are participat-ing the “monitor”. So far it is working. I hope that you can find a spiritual plan of growth for this year and then get someone to join you and be your support. It will do us all good to have this going on in our lives.

I would like to give a big thank you to all those that brought food and gifts by the house this year at Christmas and for the gift of money from the church. The acts of kindness and thought-fulness to my family at Christmas are very appreciated. You are the best people on earth. God bless your new year with loads of joy and fruitful service for the Kingdom of God.
