Welcome to our family! We are a welcoming bunch of Jesus followers who don't take ourselves too seriously! We are the church all week long... but we try to get together at least once a week at our celebration service at 10:45. ) You can even check us out in advance by listening to our services, watching the video, or reading the bulletins. Just click the menus above.
Pastor Joell's birthday is this Sunday (July 24th). Send him a birthday text or email!
Maybe he'll get a new razor for his birthday!
Please consider donating some change to our Loonie Toonie container this Sunday. The donations will go to Tim & Kallie H. in Bolivia.
Bring a bag lunch to the church on Wednesday, July 27 at noon hour. We will eat and visit until 12:30 and then spend some time in prayer.
If you have a prayer request you'd like us to pray about, please contact the church by that morning.
Are you interested in a ComBap Golf Tournament this summer/fall? If you would like us to organize one again this year, please contact Jake G. or the church office!
P.S. All ages and skill levels would be welcome!
Bringing People Into The Caring Community Of Christ
July 18, 2016 - "Choices" Edition
Facebook has some great posts - some are funny, some are inspirational, and some are just plain cute. Here are two that contain significant advice for all of us. Instead of running on "auto pilot", let's try to be more intentional about our choices. Although we can't control all our circumstances, we can - AND DO - choose our attitudes and our priorities.
I love Philippians 4. Here are some excerpts from this valuable chapter:
- "Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again - rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all that you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon."
- "Don't worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."
- "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise."
- "I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or with little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength."
These are all choices we can make: "be full of joy", "rejoice", "be considerate", "don't worry", "pray about everything", "thank God", "fix your thoughts", "be content". Our thoughts, words, deeds, and attitudes are all important and will determine which fellow in the above picture we most resemble. Let's choose wisely.
