Wow! Autumn is here! In some ways, we have been waiting for its arrival since August; and, in other ways, we are amazed that October is already here! As the temperatures begin to descend and the leaves begin to fall, I am reminded of our baptism that through dying to myself, I am raised up in Christ. I am a new creation, I am a child of God, I am a co-heir with Christ, I am a disciple of Christ, I am an Ambassador of Christ, I am… My identity, existence and being is in the Great I AM… I am because He Is! So are you! When it seems everything around us is going in the wrong direction, is falling, is going down, let us remember who raises us up and who gives us our identity… Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Which leads me to ask, is Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior? Or just your Savior? We need to make sure He is the Lord of our lives as well. So many times, in conversations with other Christians, I have noticed that people talk about Jesus Christ being their Savior but not much about Him being Lord of their lives. My brothers and sisters, let us make sure our words and actions reveal the evidence that He is both Lord and Savior in our lives.
October starts with Meet & Greet on the 7th. It brings back Fred and Libby Dearing on Sunday, October 14th to update us on what is happening in Uganda with our children at Grace Orphanage. Let us also remember to keep those who stayed behind in South Sudan to protect our compounds still located there in our Prayers. We will also celebrate UMW Day on Sunday, October 28th as our women will lead us in worship. Be on the look-out for other available activities via emails and Sunday’s bulletin. Keep our monthly calendar close by and we hope you will join us in as many activities as possible.
We will continue our study in Revelation on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and our sermon series on the Book of Daniel will continue throughout the month as well. Continue to look for opportunities to be Disciples making Disciples through Worship…Connect…Grow…Serve/Give…Share!
May God continue to richly bless each of you, reveal Himself to you and draw you ever closer to Him.
Love in Christ,
Large enough to serve, Small enough to care
