Greetings in Christ!

We are looking forward to the tremendous things God is going to do through the ministries of (NAME OF CHURCH) as we move into the Fall Season. Many ministries are gearing up to be stronger than ever before as they seek to be a blessing to both our church and community.

Time is one of those things we all have on our hands. We might feel like we have little time or a lot of time, but the reality of it is that we ALL have the same amount of time to deal with. It’s up to us however, HOW we spend that time! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Greetings in Christ,

Kyle Idleman has a tremendous preaching/teaching series called “Not a Fan”, and with first glance at the title it might seem like the statement is being made that we shouldn’t be a “fan” of Jesus, and really, this is what is being stated!

The idea though is that so many people are actually “fans” of Jesus and not “followers” of Jesus. When Jesus was here on the earth He had a lot of what would be considered “fans”. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Have you ever heard a statement similar to this? “Well, I would love to be able to go to church, but it’s hard for me to do when I see all the hypocrites there.”

While you may have not heard those exact words, you’ve probably heard a variation of some kind and perhaps wondered a bit if you were being accused of being a hypocrite. None of us want to be considered in such a way, yet this is the impression often left in the wake of such a statement.

Jesus valued the church greatly, and in fact calls it his Bride! We know also that He’s coming one day for a Bride without spot or wrinkle, but we also realize there’s still a lot of spots to be removed, and wrinkles to iron! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Greetings in Christ,

Love makes ALL the difference! We’ve perhaps heard that many times, yet I wanted to take a few moments to share this reminder with you that it truly does make ALL the difference, especially when it’s the love of God being referred to! I believe today if we are ever going to share God’s love with those around us, we first need to experience it in our own lives.

As I was reading various scriptures having to do with the love God has for us, I came across the following which was actually a prayer the Apostle Paul was offering to God on behalf of the church at Ephesus while he was in prison for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are always in a position within the church of having a need for more people to minister to others. Whether it be a present ministry we have, or a ministry that is yet to begin. Our desire is that each and every believer within the body find a place to serve and be a blessing to others.

As the ministry of Christ continued throughout the Gospels that he had very little time or patience for those who were using religion to advance their own self-righteousness and profit. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear

You have seen the tragic news headlines of brothers and sisters in Christ going through what seems to be, at least to us, unprecedented persecution around the world.

This persecution goes far beyond anything we may face, but people are paying the highest price to stay true to Christ, even if it means the loss of their own lives, and in many cases, the loss of the lives of their family members. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

I wanted to take a few moments to send this letter to let you know that as the Pastor of (NAME OF CHURCH) am praying for you as you go through this difficult time in your life.

Without a doubt, during times like this I’ve had in my own life, I have turned to the Word of God for encouragement for my soul, and the Lord has come through in a great way time after time! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Thank you for sharing your time and talents on our sound board during the worship services here at (NAME OF CHURCH)!

Sometimes it might feel like being a Sound Team Member at a worship service is a little like being an umpire in a Baseball game. Why do I say that? Because the best umpire in a game is one that is not noticed!  Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Greetings in Christ!

I wanted to take this opportunity to send a letter of appreciation to all of you who minister instrumentally on our Worship Team here at (NAME OF CHURCH).

One of my favorite passages of scripture in the Bible is found in the Psalms and happens to be the 150th Psalm… the last one!

Psalms 150:1-6 (KJV) 1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
