  • First Christian Church

    The Rev. Dann’s message was “Growing Like Weeds” on Sunday. He challenged us with the question, “Is our faith still growing like weeds, is it still active?” The choir sang a beautiful melody led by Berna Tanksley; and during the “Time for Young Disciples,” the children learned how easy it is to be successful when you have God’s help.

  • Elk Lick Baptist

    Bro. John’s message was on “Planking Ahead,” John 14:1-3. Jesus said he prepared us a place and will come back to get us. We need to plan for our trip. Jesus will come in the blink of an eye. The dead will rise first, then the saved will rise in the air to meet him. We pack for a trip now — when Jesus comes we don’t need anything but ourselves. We need to change our currency for heavenly currency. We need to help others. We need to use our gifts for the Lord and store accounts in Heaven. We need a ticket to travel here — our trip to Heaven is free, paid by Jesus on the cross.

  • Dedication service

    A dedication service was recently held for Aiden and Arron Gullion. They were accompanied by Bro. Jared, Meagan and Bro. Matthew Gullion.

  • Can pain be a gift?

    Last month, a man I know had surgery on his hand, the second surgery on the same hand.
    After the first surgery his hand had lost quite a bit of feeling. On the one hand (no pun intended), that meant it didn’t hurt any more. But on the other, no feeling meant he couldn’t do his job, which requires using both hands and all his fingers.
    After the second surgery his hand was still numb, which was a huge disappointment for him. But then during the middle of the night it started hurting. His wife told me he was happy for the pain because that meant he could feel again.

    The Rev. Wotier’s message, “When the Judges Are Judged,” was taken from John 7:53 and 8:1-11. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought before Jesus a woman who had committed adultery. Jesus started writing in the sand. Why did Jesus write in the sand? What did Jesus write? Could it have been about the particular sins of the Scribes and Pharisees themselves? Sinners are people, not things. Sinners (no matter what their actions) are people and precious to our Heavenly Father.
    The Deacon of the Month is Danny Jacobs.

    Bro. Andy’s message was from John 3:1-21 and was entitled “Light.” Light vs. Dark — If you live in the light you can make a difference. Sinners live in the dark and need to be shown the light. The children’s sermon focused on the importance of honoring your father and mother. During children’s church, the kids learned about Zacchaeus meeting Jesus from Luke 19:1-10. A special thanks to Ashley Buffin for being a wonderful assistant in teaching the lesson.

    Our numbers were down Sunday due to the weather. Bro. James’ sermon was titled “Is Your Faith in God Strong?” taken from Luke 17. An example of faith was found on the wall of a concentration camp. A prisoner had carved the following words: “I believe in the sun, even though it doesn’t shine, I believe in love, even when it isn’t shown, I believe in God, even when he doesn’t speak.”

    Bro. Emory’s message Sunday was “The King and His Kingdom;” it came from Matthew 6:33. The Kingdom of God comes to us when we give God reign over our lives. We looked at the reality of the Kingdom, the rule of the Kingdom and the Righteousness of the Kingdom. We are not only to seek God’s control over us but to seek God’s character within us. We are to be completely sold out to the Kingdom of God and to our Lord Jesus, our King. Who is your King? Who wears the crown in your castle? Who sits on the throne of your life?
