Ladies, we’ll be making caps for preemie babies or chemo patients. Just bring some soft yarn and your knitting needles or crochet hook. If you don’t know how, the Twisted Sisters will be happy to teach you. Call Carolyn Martin, Holly Singhas, or Jena Cote with your questions.
“Many Hands Make Light Work” and it was proven once again tonight. A great big thanks to the following ladies who helped prepare materials which will be used by the Olive Branch Ministries when they sponsor an upcoming mission trip to Nicaragua: Kathie Schmidtmann, Terri Brooks, Barbara Cook, Jodi Stone, Laura Bosco, Mary Hoagland, Holly Singhas, Tracy Twenty, Carolyn Martin, Janet Biecher, and Cathy Rampy. These items will be used to teach and show the love of the Lord to the children. Good work ladies and thank you once again.
Ladies, today I made another delivery of recycled grocery bags to the Community Food Bank and you would have thought I delivered a sack of gold. They said to tell you how much they appreciate these donations. Put yourself in their shoes….try to imagine bringing in your groceries that are not in bags. It would be awful. So, lets all get those loose bags out of our pantries and bring them to Church on Sundays. If you’ll put them in the little bin next to the front door, I’ll take them to the Food Bank. They get so excited when they see me drive up with your bags. Thanks for your help. It is a simple thing, but it makes a big difference in many lives of the folks who depend on this Food Bank. Carolyn Martin
This singing weekend has been a resounding success and our honored guest Scott Lippiatt (left) has been an inspiration to us all. Joining our church from the Glen Rock Church of Christ in Pensilvania, Scott brings with him his wife Jill, and their three children – not to mention a lifetime of experience in worship and song leading in the a-capella tradition.
The day started out with Scott working with our current, past and possible future song leaders to talk about some of the lessons he had learned from experience, and from his time working with the Worship Leader Institute, where he was accepted and has spent numerous periods of time studying and deepening his skills in the craft of worship and song leading.
Service project Tuesday May 10th 7-9pm at the church building.
We will be preparing supplies for the Nicaragua mission trip project again this year.
Bring scissors! 🙂
This week Bob asks, “What are Elders supposed to be like?”
To further educate the congregation and to pick up on last week’s theme, Warrenton Church of Christ Minister, Bob Kolodner goes into detail about the characteristics of a Church of Christ Elder and what he should ideally be like.
In last week’s sermon, Bob talked about the things that Elders are supposed to do. This sermon was designed to help us recognize the traits to look for in an Elder as we approach the Elder selection process this summer. This week, we learn more about what our Elders should be like – according to the scripture of Paul in Titus, 1 Timothy and from the Gospel according to Matthew. Read more
With the Elder selection process planned for early this summer, Bob helps us prepare with some wonderful scriptural reminders of what Elders are supposed to do, and indeed, what they are supposed to be. As we would expect, Bob brilliantly presents scripture from Timothy, Peter and Samuel to illustrate the traits of a church Elder.
Bob narrows his findings from scripture down to seven specific items that we should keep in mind when thinking about the people we should put forward to shepherd our flock in the coming years. Watch this video to find out what these seven items are. This will also be a good sermon to revisit nearer the selection time to help remind us of what we should be looking for in an Elder.
Our prayers and thanks go out to the Elders and all church leaders who currently serve us, and to those who have served in the past. We are blessed to have you all with us.
It’s time to make a joyful noise to the Lord!
Scott Lippiatt will be here at the Church on April 23- 24 for a wonderful weekend of singing. Join us Saturday afternoon for some time to focus on helpful ways to improve our worship through song, and for a congregational sing on Saturday night too.
All are invited.
Our next VBS Planning meeting will be April 16th at 9 a.m. for more practical planning as we consider how to share the story of “David: A man after God’s own Heart” with our children.
There is a place for everyone to help! It’s gonna be GOOD! If you were not able to make last month’s meeting, see Becca for more details.
In this week’s scripture-packed sermon, our beloved minister Bob Kolodner teaches us about the body of Christ. Bob brilliantly assembles the scripture of John and the words of Paul in Ephesians and 1 Corinthians to illustrate how the Christian church today is the living incarnated body of Christ.
Eph. 4 – As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
This week’s greek word is ‘Sarx’, meaning ‘Flesh’ or ‘Body’.
