Warm up questions: 

  • What do parents want for their children? 
  • What will parents do to achieve this?
  • Why would they be willing to do this?

Let’s read the passage (1 Thessalonians 2:1-12) with the following questions in mind:

What does it say? 

Simply summarizing  this new passage in no more that a few sentences.We might say, "We shared the gospel with you and also our very lives. We loved you and treated like our own children."

Today we celebrate the third Sunday of Advent season. Advent is a time where we wait in expectation and prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. In some Christian traditions, this third Sunday has a special name: Gaudete (Gaw-day-tay) Sunday. Gaudete is Latin for “Rejoice” - to feel or show great joy or happiness. Are you full of great joy and happiness this Sunday?

So, what makes you happy?...

2016 Summer Baptism

2016 Summer Baptism

What a blessing it was to be a part of this day. We celebrated the baptism of our friend and new sister in Christ.

Since this was to be a celebration, we made a day of it by the river.  After the worship service and a river baptism, we enjoyed a time of food and fellowship. And, of course, we couldn't pass the chance to get our feet wet.

We left that afternoon with cheerful hearts, full stomachs... and slightly sunburnt. Can't wait to do this again.

Reading: Psalm 27:7-14

  1. Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice,
    And be gracious to me and answer me.
  2. When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You,
    “Your face, O Lord, I shall seek.”
  3. Do not hide Your face from me,
    Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
    You have been my help;
    Do not abandon me nor forsake me,
    O God of my salvation!
  4. For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
    But the Lord will take me up.
  5. Teach me Your way, O Lord,

Seek His Face (Psalm 27:7-10)

Reading: Psalm 27:4-10

(Note: We read verse 4-7 last time. This is just to add context today.)

  1. One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek:
    That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
    To behold the beauty of the Lord
    And to meditate in His temple.

  2. For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle;
    In the secret place of His tent He will hide me;
    He will lift me up on a rock.

Keith Goodson's Ordination: Words of Affirmation and Charge

Keith, Casey and EZ

One Sunday afternoon over twenty years ago, I was asked to give a scruffy, junior-high boy named Keith Goodson a ride home from worship service. Honestly, if you’d told me that day that he would one day be called to be a minister of the Gospel, I might not have believed you. However, over the years, I must say that I’m not surprised that we are here today. Through worship services and mission trips; Bible study fellowships and street ministries; road trips and weekend retreats; it has been my great joy to witness Keith grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Elisabeth Elliot (1926 - 2015): A Short Tribute

Elisabeth Elliot

I found that a woman I deeply respected, Elisabeth Elliot, died this week (June 15, 2015). Elisabeth Elliot lived a life that most of us can't even imagine. She moved to Ecuador as a young missionary in 1953 and married her husband, Jim Elliot, on the mission field. A few years later, Jim and others were killed by Waorani tribemen. Elizabeth was alone with her infant daughter and was expected to return home to morn. Instead, she stayed in Ecuador and eventually moved into the Waorani village and lived among them until 1963.
