Magnets and Mothers? Invitation to Mother’s Day Service

Warm Greetings!

A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question: ” My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I pick up things. What am I?” When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost 50 percent of the students answered the question with the word Mother.

Greetings in Christ!

One of the most discouraging aspects of sharing the Gospel is knowing that so many people will reject the message, and yes, even at times reject the messenger…you.

At times, we might think that if we could just be a bit more like Jesus then everyone would accept this message because we would minister the way He wants us to minister. We would share the exact words they need to hear to make the decision for Christ. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Resurrection Greetings!

Luke 24:6-7 (NKJV) 6 He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, 7 saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ ”

Can you imagine what it must have been like for Mary and Martha along with certain other women to hear those words from the Angel at the tomb of Jesus? The range of emotions went from the lowest of the low to the highest of the high as the news of the resurrection of Christ began to register first in their minds, then it moved to their hearts and finally made its way to their feet as they soon would be running to tell the Disciples!

Importance of Observing Lent

Importance of Observing Lent 

Dear (INSERT NAME)

Grace and peace to you as we embark on a journey of reflection, meditation, worship, and service over the course of the next several weeks.

The Lenten season differs in many ways from the Advent season: we don’t have a hanging of the greens, we don’t sing carols, and instead of anticipating the birth of the Christ child, we prepare ourselves for His death and resurrection.    Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear (INSERT NAME),

For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him. –Genesis 18:19

For Christians, Easter is one of the biggest holidays of the year; however, we don’t always host the same kind of family engagements at Easter time as we do for the winter holidays. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear (INSERT NAME),

Even though I’m a fan of technology, it seems like there’s no escaping it, even if you wanted to.  In our modern, digital world, it’s easy to work around the clock:  our cell phones are always on and everyone expects their text messages and emails to be answered instantaneously.  Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Senior Pastor Appreciation Letter to Staff – Christmas

Greetings!

I wanted to take this opportunity during the Christmas Season to express my thanks and appreciation for all you do, and more importantly WHO you are as we serve together here at (NAME OF CHURCH).

Perhaps as we work together on a regular basis, it might seem that we become used to it and fail to properly indicate how much we need each other, not only as staff members but also as brothers and sisters in Christ. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
