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 were all saddened by the shootings in Charleston and the context in which they happened. This month for the Quill, I would like to share an article written by one of our members that expresses what many of us feel about the situation. The article is by Jim Hofmann. I appreciate his willingness to allow me to share this. He didn’t ask to be acknowledged for it but I think it appropriate that I do.

The Horror of Charleston – The Comfort of Christ
After the assassination of President Kennedy there was a drawing in the local newspaper. It was a picture of Abraham Lincoln sitting in his chair behind the columns in the Lincoln Memorial. He was not sitting upright revealing his expressions of wisdom, fortitude and perseverance. No, in this picture the man who saved the Union, who urged us to have malice toward none and charity for all, the man who sought to heal our nation’s wounds was slumped forward in his chair. His hands covered his face and he was sobbing over the tragedy of that time.
Once again we are grief stricken. Once again tragedy is upon us, once again the hatred and sin that is part of all of us has come to the fore. Today, we mourn the loss of nine of our brothers and sisters in Christ who were murdered while in prayer in the sanctuary of our church. It is our church because in Christ we are all one.
The horror of the event baffles our minds. We like to think that as a people we have moved or at least are moving beyond such expressions of hatred. We tend to forget the words of our Lord when he said “ That which proceeds out of the man is that which defiles the man, For from within, out of the heart of men proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts , murders, adulteries…..all these things proceed from within and defile the man.” (Mark 7:20, 21 and 23).
In our modern times we often downplay that the Father of lies is real, that Satan, our adversary “….prowls about like a roaring lion seeking, someone to devour.” (1Peter, 5:8). Then in the pools of blood flowing around nine bodies on the floor of the house of the Lord we are reminded of how real Satan is.
Nine people dead of the eleven in the room. The tenth was the hate filled murderer. The eleventh was Jesus. For we know wherever two or more are gathered in His name He is with them.
Today, as we pray for those who were taken, as we pray for our nation which continues to drift away from God, as we pray for some way to understand what has happened we know our only hope, our only comfort is in our Lord “For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ. (2 Cor. 1:5).    -PK
