We are a family trying to follow God's will for our lives.

Thank you

The principal of a local school wants to thank the church for the prayer rally held at the school last week. He said that without a doubt this was the best first week he has had in his 8 years as principal at the school.

Prayer works! Praise God!

Change

If we wanted to change our nation, our families, our health, where should we begin? Should we begin by changing our laws, our political leaders, our military or our elected leaders? Remember that all change will need to be voluntary and it must begin with ourselves. To be practical, we will need to identify what needs to be changed. What do we need to change? What do I need to change? I will discover what I need to change by comparing my life to God’s word. If you know something that I need to change, I would appreciate it if you would let me know the answer.

VBS 2019 Takes Off

Vacation Bible School took off with a bang! To the memory verse ‘for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God’ (Romans 3:23) we learned about God’s creation and the effect of sin in our lives and the world. Come to learn more about God’s purposes.

At the play we saw the plane crash in the jungle. Will our incredible race participants beat the competition? Will the captain be able to find help? And who is the mysterious passenger yet to be seen on stage? Come tonight to find out!

Ready? Set? Sign up!

Are you ready for the incredible race around the world? Do you want to see God’s love for the nations? Let’s discover it together at VBS at Joelton. VBS this year is July 14th through 18th nightly from 6:00 – 8:45 pm. Classes are for 2 year olds through 8th grade. Nursery and adult classes are also available.

We can’t wait to race together with you!

What is your favorite translation of the Bible?

After I counted over 23 different translations of the Bible on my bookshelves, I said that I had a favorite but I failed to tell which one was my favorite. As it turns out, my favorite translation of the Bible is the person in whom God’s Word is written. It could be you.

When I see your heart go into a home, a store or a town and I see your hands reach out to touch, to bless the children, to do right by people; I see your life go where the Bible may not go. That’s the way God does it. God reaches people through the life (heart) of Jesus and through our lives (hearts). Paul called it the aroma and fragrance of Christ. Jesus called it the salt of the earth and the light of the world. You are God’s advertisement; We are living epistles. A true Christian is a beautiful translation of the gospel and the best translation of the Bible. Its power is the life of a Christian. What kind of translation are you? What message do people receive who read your life? The only experience that many people will ever have of God is in your life

Unique Perspective

I have a unique perspective…I have the privilege of seeing life as no one else will
ever see it.

Verse: “I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139:14a)

Prayer: God, help me realize and appreciate the uniqueness of the special “window” which I view life.

Montgomery Bell Outing 2018

Everyone is invited to the ANNUAL CHURCH PICNIC…on Sunday, October 21st 2018, at Montgomery Bell State Park “Church Hollow Shelter”. Worship will begin at 10:00 AM. Following our worship we will have lunch together and spend the afternoon in fellowship and activities.

For lunch you are asked to bring finger food or covered dish (with serving pieces), drinks, ice (which you are welcome to get from the ice machine at the building), etc. All paper goods will be provided. Bring lawn chairs or blankets and items for outdoor activities. You are sure to enjoy the day together.

Regular services will be held at the building that Sunday morning, but there will NOT be a PM service at the building.

Mission

We have received a mission from God for today. We are capable and this mission defines who we are. THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT or urgent. We must not forget nor fail. The future of the world depends on it. Jesus expressed it this way: “You are the salt of the earth and the light of the world.” Make the environment around you tasty! Let your good works be seen by the world! When your mission is accomplished, God will be glorified. Can you think of any better thing to do with your life today? I can’t.

Fulfillment

Fulfillment in God’s love…We find what we’ve been missing when we let God into our lives.

Verse: “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” (John 15:9, 11)

Prayer: God, Your love for me is unsurpassed, and in it I find what I’ve been looking for.
