    After all the snow we had, it was great to see the sunshine Sunday, and our service was great.
    Bro. James spoke about resolutions as you begin a new year. You may be painfully aware that you have failed your Lord in many ways.
    Perhaps you were not faithful, perhaps you disobeyed his word to you. Jesus has a wonderful way of restoring us when we fail him. He takes us aside and asks us to reaffirm our love for him. If you truly love him, your service for him in the New Year will be of the quality he desires.
    At 6 p.m. Sunday, we’ll have Bible study.

    The New Columbus Community 4-H Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in our church fellowship hall.
    The message Sunday will be citing Matthew 23:8-12 and be titled “Why I Am Not Your ‘Calvinist.’ “
    Pastor Brad Vincent will be explaining how Jesus warns us in Matthew 23 about letting anyone claim to be our follower or claiming to follow someone else. Although many people boast about their favorite author or historical figure, we as Christians, have pledged allegiance to one: Jesus Christ.

  • Church News: Epoch Fellowship

    Where did The Wild Goose Cafe, a new service ministry of Epoch, get its name? In Mark Batterson’s “Wild Goose Chase” he writes, “The Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit ... They called Him an Geadh-Glas or ‘the Wild Goose,’ “
    Much like a wild goose, the spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed. I can’t think of a better description of what it’s like to pursue the Spirit’s leading through life than Wild Goose chase.

  • Church News: Elk Lick Baptist

    Dorothy Johnson and Don Prather lit the five Advent candles of Christ, preparation, love, joy and hope.
    Bro. John’s sermon was on Luke 2: 21-35 — “The Word Made Flesh.”
    When Joseph and Mary came to the temple to offer sacrifice, they didn’t realize they had the real sacrifice in their little child, Jesus.
    Simeon had faith as an old man that God would let him see the Lord Christ. When Mary and Joseph came to the temple, Simeon, through the Spirit, knew he was the Christ.

  • Church News: Cedar Hill Baptist

    Thanks to Bro. Jesse Bourne for sharing from Joshua 3 Sunday on the Israelites crossing Jordan into the promised land. We saw that they were obedient to God as they followed Joshua’s instructions to walk into the flooding river. They did not know what to expect but they knew God was with them. As we enter this new year we do not know what life will bring; but if we are Christians and are obedient to Christ, we can be certain that He will guide us in every situation.
