From the Pastor's Desk
God is blessing us with His Spirit. Last Sunday, we had a great service. But it is vitally important that such encounters translate to our daily lives. If not, they don't accomplish much. I encourage you to take what God does in you and channel that into discipleship and service to others.
We don't do Sunday School on Sunday mornings. We do Discipleship on Wednesday Nights. You and your kids need it. We are beginning a new adult series, "Lifestyle Evangelism: How to Win Your Family and Friends to Christ." God has used different means and methods through the years and still does. But the bulk of the harvest will not be won by crusades or Christian television. People today are skeptical, and most of them will only be won by building a relationship with them and loving them to Jesus.
And there is always plenty of ministry to be done- worship (dance, flags, music, vocal), intercessors, media, nursery, discipleship teachers and workers, men's ministry, women's ministry, youth, children, feeding the hungry, recovery, senior adults, young adults, nursing home, health and fitness, building maintenance, ushers, welcome center and visitor follow-up, new convert ministry, altar workers, finance committe, bookstore, world missions, etc. And we are always praying for God to raise up people with a passion for new areas of ministry.
Praise God for all He does in our Main Worship Services! But get connected, get discipled, get involved. What God does in us must make the difference in how we live!
