Bulletin for Sunday June 1, 2014

Good Friday Morning to All,

Here is this week’s bulletin. Almost the middle of the year. Time flies … 🙂

We begin our Romans study this week. Next Sunday is the Global Day of Prayer.

  • (1 Timothy 2:1–8 ESV) 1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time. 7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling.

 

Memorial Day Weekend – HANDOUTS for Sunday May 25, 2014

Hello Everyone,

When am I the best patriot? When do I truly have my country’s best interests at heart? When I have first things first and am seeking first God’s righteousness. And when I am living a life of honor in every respect before God and man.

Message Title: Serving with Honor!

Message Text: 1 Timothy 6:11-16, Deuteronomy 20:1-9

Bulletin for Sunday May 25, 2014

Hello All,

A time to remember and to honor those who have served. Citizens of heaven first but also thankful citizens of the good ol’ US of A. Our country is very imperfect and flawed but still the best place in the world to live.

Here is this week’s bulletin. This week’s bulletin is in color. I just couldn’t bring myself to do red, white and blue in grayscale. 🙂

HANDOUTS FOR Sunday May 18, 2014

Good Evening!

I don’t have to spend time this Sunday proving a lot, building a case for my interpretation. The point is very clear. No love means nothing – I say nothing, I am nothing, I gain nothing.

Our question this week is – “Do we believe what God says in 1 Corinthians 13”?

I wonder how this might transform how we relate to one another, board meetings, committee sessions … ?

HANDOUTS for Mothers Day / May 11, 2014

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YOU!

Here are the handouts for Sunday.

Mothers, you want to feed your children good, wholesome food so they will be healthy, right?

Same thing with God’s word. Healthy (sound) doctrine means spiritually healthy children. This week we are going to look at maybe the best comfort food there is: contentment.

Basically, God says, “Live the life you have with honor in every respect and trust him to care for you.” This is sound doctrine. A good, healthy spiritual diet.

What happens when materialism chokes our perspective and “things” become too enticing? We have “a different doctrine” Paul says.

This different (unhealthy) doctrine creates a craving for controversy and quarrels about words, which produces:

  • envy
  • slander
  • dissension
  • evil suspicions
  • and constant friction

Yuk! Not very tasty for the children of God. What we need is a good dose of godliness and we’re going to the kitchen to see what’s cooking.
