In addition to being able to watch the Sunday sermons on YouTube, you can now enjoy the word anywhere, anytime.  So, if you’re stuck on the I-66, then tune in to the WCOC Podcast and choose from what will be a growing list of sermons, and eventually other content too, to help you in your daily walk.

Community Food Bank – Recycle your plastic grocery bags

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

Singing Weekend – resonating success

Version 3This 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.

Video Sermon: What are Elders Supposed to Be Like?

This week Bob asks, “What are Elders supposed to be like?”

Screenshot 2016-04-17 14.44.17To 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.

This Week’s Sermon – What are Elders Supposed to Do?

Screenshot 2016-04-10With 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.
