Personal Note by Pastor Alan
For our Sunday morning Bible study on 2 Timothy, I was working through chapter 1 making various observations. Verse 13 popped off the page and I had to pause to take note of what it was saying. "Hold on to the pattern of sound teaching that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus."
Paul had reminded Timothy of what his mother and grandmother had taught him prior to meeting Paul. I'm one that feels Paul led Timothy to Lord and continued to teach him how to live for Christ in his new life. That got me to thinking about my spiritual heritage. My grandmother was very influential in my life. She was a very godly woman who did her best to live for Christ each day. Looking back, I realize how much I learned from her about faith, church, and living for Christ.
Do you have someone like that in your life? Has there been a mentor who taught you about the Bible and the Christ life? As you reflect on that, thank God for them and how they influenced you. As Paul told Timothy, hold fast to the sound teaching you received from them. Especially as we are living in times where there is so much false truth being espoused in our society. You can always trust God's word being sound and truthful. You can always rely on it. Remember that it is through faith in Jesus Christ that we can know the truth.
Onward and Upward!
Changes Are Coming
Beginning this week you'll see some changes in our worship service. Eric and Sandy, our worship team, will no longer be serving in our church. They felt God leading them in a new direction and last Sunday was their last.
So, if you would like to help out and be a part of the worship team, please let me know. We need musicians and singers, no experience required. Also if you know someone who is not a member of our church and feel they would like to help us out, send me their name and contact information.
We will begin live streaming our worship services to our website and Faithlife TV and continue on Facebook in next few weeks. Our prayer is for the quality to increase and allow us to reach more people.
Pray for us as we make these transitions in the coming weeks.
