Marty Koonce – Rwanda

Screenshot 2016-08-28 17.02.09Marty Koonce joins us one last time before returning to his mission in Rwanda.

We were once again blessed to be joined by our brother Marty and to receive his lesson based deeply in the many wisdoms he has acquired on his journey both around the world and with our lord too.  In this video you will hear Marty’s thoughts on exit strategies, not just from Rwanda, as he has 1004 days left of his mission, and God willing, will be returning to America in July of 2019; but also a strategy for life, to look back at the end and be glad to have lead a life that matters.

It’s hard to do justice to his thoughts in these few sentences, so please view this video to enjoy the full essence of Marty’s joyful and insightful narrative.

1 Corinthians – Family Fights Part IV

Screenshot 2016-08-21 16.39.05 copyIn this week’s message, Bob takes us further still into the dysfunctional church of Corinth and we learn that members of the church are taking out lawsuits against each other.

What do you think Paul’s reaction to this news was?  Is this really how Brothers and Sisters in Christ should be dealing with problems they have among themselves – taking their grievances to a secular judge?

Find out the answer to these and other questions in this week’s installment of 1 Corinthians, Part 4, Family Fights.

Much fun was had by all and a surprising number of totes were created.  And we made a little video of the evenings events for your enjoyment.  Watch the video below to see just how everyone joined in to produce these wonderful Walker Totes.

Thank you Ladies, you’re a blessing to us all.

Just a reminder that this coming Tuesday August 16th, from 7 – 9 PM, you are invited to join the Ladies Service Night and help make Walker Totes.

The Spirit of the Family

Screenshot 2016-08-14 14.04.49 copyIn this week’s sermon, Bob continues our journey through the text of first Corinthians: a fascinating tale of early church disfunction and one from which we can all learn.

1 Cor. 2:14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for,

“Who has known the mind of the Lord
    so as to instruct him?”

But we have the mind of Christ.

WCOC Praise Team – Live

Here’s a wonderful live recording of the WCOC Praise Team captured at a rehearsal during Scott Lippiatt’s visit on the singing weekend back in April.

It was recorded live in the main auditorium so there’s a little traffic and background noise, but somehow that doesn’t matter at all – the voices are so enchanting, your spirit will be lifted.  Click on the player below to hear this beautiful rendition of ‘How Deep the Father’s Love’, brought to you by our very own Warrenton Church of Christ Praise Team.

God bless.
