CHRISTMAS BLITZ and ANGEL TREE – Names should have been submitted to the office. If you want to help by purchasing food items please pick up a list of items needed on the welcome center table in the rear lobby. Usually we deliver on Christmas Eve morning, but, since Christmas Eve is on Sunday, we will be delivering on Saturday, December 23rd. We will meet at the building at 9:30 AM to deliver the food boxes and angel gifts.
Hi Everyone. Because of the expected rain all day on Sunday we will NOT be going to Montgomery Bell State Park. INSTEAD you are asked to bring your food to the building and stay after the morning assembly for a potluck and play games at the building.
If nothing changes, invent.
When it does change, try to understand.
If life gets difficult, face it,
And when things get easy, give thanks.
If sorrow surrounds you, rejoice
When you become happy, share it with others,
And when the sorrow begins again, believe in God’s promises.
Believe that you can do all things.
All things are possible.
All things are possible by love and by the faith you have in God.
“Lord please bless us and keep us”
Every year our church participates in Bible Bowl. This is a Bible knowledge competition for children and youth. Questions are multiple choice from a predetermined set of books from the Bible. This year was on Mark, Philippians, and Colossians. There were over 300 teams of four students from over 70 congregations representing six states. The event is hosted at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, TN.
This year we had an exceptional group of children and teenagers, six teams in all, and they all did so well. Everyone competed in the main rounds (four rounds with 25 questions each) and we had three teams make it to the sweet 16 team competition. Congratulations to everyone who participated. We pray that the knowledge of God goes beyond the mind into the heart and guides our future leaders in life.
Join us for our Vacation Bible School, where kids will have fun while learning from the Bible. In this day and age, it’s vital that we teach our children that the Bible is more than just a dusty book of stories. We need to show them God’s Word connects to every area of our lives and is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.
Vacation Bible School starts Sunday July 9 and goes through Thursday July 13, 2017 at 6 p.m.–8:45 p.m.
It is a shared desire among us that every person at Joelton will become a follower of Jesus and will seek out his purpose for their lives. The church at Joelton is a family – a spiritual family of believers who are passionate about their love for Jesus. Families are not perfect. But even with all of our shortcomings, we realize that each person here is a precious and loved child of the King.
We belong to God and to each other, and we invite you to share in that same experience with us.
Now you are the body of Christ,
and each one of you is a part of it.
I Corinthians 12:27
Following a BBQ meal, the church family had a great time at Joelton’s annual talent show, “Feed the Flock.” The night of music, skits, and comedy included performances from several adults, teenagers, and children who showcased their God-given talents. It was certainly an evening full of fun, laughter, and entertainment! Thank you to everyone who organized this year’s event to make it a huge success!
Starting on March 8th 2017, we’ll offer Financial Peace University (FPU) at Joelton. This is a nine-week class on managing finances via the Dave Ramsey material. The class includes sessions on budgeting, getting out of debt, insurance, investing, and much more. Each class starts at 6:50 pm and will go to approximately 8:15pm. Everyone is welcome. The class costs $120.
For more information on FPU click here. If you have questions regarding the class, please contact Robert Berger.
Recently the Joelton Youth Group has gotten together with a few other youth groups in the area. Different congregations have hosted these events and this past Sunday it was time to meet at Joelton. We had a great time with praising God, sweet fellowship, tasty food, and playing games. Thank you to everyone who came and everyone who made this evening a success.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:5 & 6
