The world has a way of beating up on us, doesn’t it? It’s been a while, but I love to sit on the beach and just watch the waves roll in. The waves just keep coming, sometimes bigger than others, but they just keep coming. It’s a lot like life…it just keeps coming. There’s not much I can guarantee you, but there are a few things, and one is this: if you watch the news tonight you will hear some bad news. You will hear about a depressed economy, layoffs, death, criminal behavior and more. Wave upon wave, the world just beats up on us.
So we need encouragement. We need to be reminded of what is good, and pure, and lovely and a good report. Today the Lord has encouraged me in more ways than way with the following words: “But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.” (Ps. 3:3) Hallelujah! And put it to music! Check this out and just see if you won’t be encouraged too!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y284YvkYrZo
Youth Bible Study:
This Wednesday evening our Revive Student Ministry went to see the movie, “To Save a Life”. It’s especially written for high schoolers…but…I think every Christian can be helped by seeing this movie. I really encourage you to go check it out. Beginning next Wednesday night, Lord willing, we will be discussing some of the truths we picked up from the movie in our Wednesday evening Bible studies. Mom and dad, if your teen ever needs a ride on Wednesday nights, please let us know. We will work with you to provide transportation. Wednesdays @ 7PM
Sunday Evening Family Movie Night:
I know we have moved this twice now, but this Sunday evening @ 6 we will actually have this. I think we will be showing “Father of the Bride” (comedy), unless someone offers a really great alternative. Let’s invite a friend, bring some food and snacks along and have a great evening of fellowship together!
Super Bowl Night!
No surprise that our church family loves football, so on February 7 we will have a Super Bowl Night at the church! Feel free to invite your friends and neighbors. Also, we want you to come up with a 60 second – comedy or commercial. Can be about anything…just make sure it’s appropriate for our church family lol! Can be live or on dvd. You can enter more than one. Do it alone, or do it with family or friends, but have some fun and see who can bring the most laughs during the Super Bowl!
Upcoming Church-wide Events:
January 31 – Family Movie Night @ 6 pm
February 7 – Super Bowl Night @ 5 pm
February 21 – Launch new Sunday evening Bible study @ 6 pm
Be a part of the excitement Sunday at 10:00 am at CrossBridge! Invite someone to be your guest this Sunday!
Have a Great Day!
