Things to keep you in good spiritual shape

Hello Church, The Thanksgiving season is good training for all of us. Here are some tips: As I said Sunday, Start with Praise. Make praise part of your morning routine. Praise has 2 facets, 1) praising God for who he is. Google, how you can express praise for his character using the alphabet: “God, you are awesome, benevolent, caring, determined, engaging, faithful… This is truly a good exercise to appreciate the greatness of God. 2) Praising God for what he…

Mentoring Students

Hello CCA, A number of CCA members mentored students at Bowman Elementary last year. The school and students and the teachers were appreciative. They are asking us to do the same for this school year. Your options are quite varied: age of students, number of students, skills you would like to help with, amount of time you can give, time of day you can be present, and what you can do with the student/s. Tuesday from 5-6 is an orientation/training…

Thanksgiving Blessing

Hello Church 😊 Research with me this season! It has made me think. I will be sharing 3 ways that Thanks-Giving is therapeutic to you this month. “Google it”, run a search in your Bible program, look up cross references in your Bible and Bible Concordance. See how many similar terms to thanksgiving you can come up with. Discuss it with your family. Forbid, that Thanksgiving is just one day! CCA participates in the city-wide Thanksgiving Blessing each year. CCA is…

Missions Conference Follow Through

Hi CCA 😊 Personally, I had no worries about reaching our Missions Conference financial goal of $10K. (it is currently over $11,800 – more may come in) You folks are always generous toward projects and Mission work. Most of you just received State money and you are encouraging me by applying the Biblical Saving Plan principles I have talked about for years. I am proud of your accomplishments and your heart for Kingdom Missions. We had some insightful and inspiring messages…

Wednesday Night Discipleship

Hello CCA, Tomorrow, Wednesday Night is dinner and Adult Discipleship Study. (There are classes for all ages as well.) We are learning to add 7 spiritual traits to our faith from what Peter writes: “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his…

Missions Conference Begins Friday Night

Hello Church, More than a year in the planning. Our 2019 Missions Conference starts tomorrow at 7 pm. Discovery will be based around what Jesus said just as he is returning to heaven to prepare a place for us, and come back for an increased Kingdom; “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the…

Tonight and this Weekend

Hello CCA 😊 3 things I would have you consider: Wednesday Night Alive adult discipling study is The Responsibility to other Disciples. Memory verses are 1 Corinthians 13.4-8a. I used those this weekend when I did a wedding at Alyeska. Tonight at 6 for dinner, 7 for spiritual fitness. Friday at 7, begins our Mission’s Conference weekend. Why should I attend each session? What do I know about “The Great Commission”? Matthew 28.18-20 is the central scripture of focus for the…

discipleship has its advantages

Hello CCA WEDNESDAY NIGHT ALIVE (WNA). The memory verse for last week’s discipleship study was James 1.2-4 and here it is. Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4 NASB Did you get a chance to use that verse this week? A week seldom goes by when we…

rich from PFD

Hello CCA 😊 “Tell your money where to go.” That’s the “Big Idea” for the Annual Financial series I have done for years. I love it and you will too. We are on week 2 this Sunday – build your Generosity Plan. Spoiler alert: tell this week’s PFD ‘where to go.’ Don’t wake up next week and wonder where it went. ‘Money talks’ and for the naive it says ‘goodbye’. CCA loves to talk about money. Handling money well makes families…
