Faith and Tomorrow

Hello Church, The calm after the storm. Did you see the full moon this morning standing out against a clear blue sky? It was beautiful. And it reminded me of God’s truth. Yesterday was one of the hardest downpours we have experienced in Alaska, punctuated by gusty winds, lightning and thunder. Truly a day to watch it from inside. Our lives sure experience tempests don’t they. But remember God has the next move and he is bringing a solution and…

FW: Insider’s Alert

Hello CCA and family. Here is the recent report from Lee Turner who, with his son Jonathan, minister to the Muslim world. Jonathan will be here in October to lead our Missions Conference along with Doug Reed of LATM (Literature And Teaching Ministries) http://latm.info/ Participating in changing people’s destiny Deryl Titus

people resolved to changing the course of peoples’ eternal history

Hello CCA, A preacher friend of mine once called me when (unbeknownst to him) I was having a hard time dealing with some church problems. He said, I’ve been doing this for a long time. I have found that ministry wouldn’t be half bad if it weren’t for people. That ‘cheered me up some’ and made me chuckle because ministry is people!! Always was always will be. This church, any church is a complexity of people. People choose to walk…

“Follow Me”

Hello Church “Follow me” is a life-long learning curve. That is Jesus’ offer. (John 10.27 ‘My sheep hear my voice and they follow me.’) It’s a remake of everything we know. Everything in the New Testament shouts ‘NEW’. Wednesday nights we are learning some Discipleship ideals and learning how to communicate to people who need NEW. Scary but oh so worth our best efforts 😊 Here is the memory verse for tomorrow night: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing…

The Memory verse is 2 Timothy 3.16,17 NLT “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.

Back To Church Sunday

Happy Friday!! I am loving the sunshine we have had the last few days! Next Sunday is Back To Church Sunday, we have called it Fall Kick Off in the past. We are going to start calling it Back to Church Sunday because it is a national movement to get congregations across America to invite people back to church. I made invitations last week for you all to pick up to hand out to friends and neighbors. I put them…

Wednesday Discipling

Hello Church 😊 Its been rewarding to see the interest in learning to grow as a disciple in 9 specific ways from 2 Peter chapter 1 and about our role in giving some discipleship training to others. Tomorrow is week #3. It is about “Knowing God’s will.” The scripture to memorize is Proverbs 3.5,6: 5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.…

This Sunday.

Hello Church 😊 Sunday we have a unique opportunity to peer in to God’s Word. We will be in Acts chapter 17 and reading about the city of Thessalonica. We get to see what brought them to Christ and then we can read a letter back to them within just a few short months. This will give us a window to learn what an Apostle taught as the first basic Christian information. This will permit us to see what we…
