Summer Camp

We have arranged for a week of summer camp in Sandbridge, VA.  We will start on June 8th and come back on June 15th.  Our focus ages are people going into 8th grade through college.  We will be worshiping together, growing as disciples through biblical teaching, serving the homeless at Union Mission Ministries in Norfolk,  enjoying great meals and fellowship in the house called Fun and Games, which is the same one we had last year.  Camp cost $275.  If you want to go, don’t let a lack of money stop you from coming.  We will work with you to find a way to pay for it.  We’d love to have a full camp of 29 people.  Contact Rich for more information.  304 270 8673.

Invite your One this weekend to worship.

Thom Rainer says that about 82 percent of people would attend a church service if a friend invited them. What constitutes an invitation? For many of the unchurched, it was a simple invitation to come to one’s church. For others, it was an invitation that included an offer to meet someone at church to show them around or walk them into the building. In either case, the process was pretty basic. If we invite them, they will come.
This Sunday is Easter. It would be a great time to invite your The One you’ve been praying for and sharing the good news about Jesus to come with you.
I will be talking about how the resurrection of Jesus Christ changes everything.

The Invisible Tape Recorder

Francis Schaeffer, in The Church at the End of the Twentieth Century, offered an analogy for how God will judge us one day: At birth every person is fitted with an invisible microphone around their neck. You will always be completely unaware of it, and it only records when you say things like “someone should. . .”, He ought to. . . “, “No one should ever. . . “ . When you die and are brought to the judgment seat, God will not judge the Jews by the Torah; he will not judge the Christians by the Bible. He will not judge the pagans by their religion either. Instead he will play back your recorder, and every time you say those ought’s and oughtn’ts, God will judge you on your own judgments. If you don’t see that you would be in big trouble under those terms, please pause and ask someone who knows and loves you if you sometimes have a higher standard for others than you do for yourself.
Law brings judgment. Romans chapter 2 says that we who judge others do the same things they do, and under the law we will all be punished. But God, in his kindness is leading us to repentance. At the end of the chapter Paul writes about a circumcision of the heart, a heart surgery, a heart change, a tuning of our hearts into God’s frequency. God help me, help us to stop looking at our New Testament, as a new set of laws and rules, but as the chance to have a new heart, to be right before God because of the blood Jesus Christ shed for us, instead of trying to balance out the scales with our own right acts. Jesus faced my judgment on the cross, and now I’m innocent before God. Praise the Lord!
