Make Disciples

Image
I have been so blessed to see our church staff and leadership go above and beyond during Vacation Bible School.  Mary Lou and her team of decorators, teachers, cooks and helpers gave the children and their families of the Homeland Park community a clear picture of who Jesus is.  I never grow weary of seeing people serve and children coming to know Jesus Christ as their Savior.  The purpose of VBS and everything else we do, is to make Christ known and grow disciples.  The great thing about VBS is that it is a “front door” to many who will prayerfully walk through and allow our church family to minister to them.  Please, pray for us we follow up with those who made decisions.  Pray that the seed that was sowed will gain roots and be washed away. [Matthew 13]

Also, I am looking forward to our Sunday Nights Alive Praise events that we will have this month.  I always enjoy the fellowship with other believers.  We are a church family! Families enjoy spending time together. Use these nights …

This week, our church is hosting Vacation Bible School! We had a great turn out on our first night, both from participants and volunteers.

Be A Fan For Other People

Image
Are you a Tiger or a Gamecock?  Many give their support to either Clemson or Carolina while some pull for other schools and even a smaller minority could care less. Everyone likes to support something!  Everyone likes to be encouraged!  We want to be a part of a team/institution that is making a difference.  I was never a star athlete, but I do remember my Junior High and High School football days where our games would have the stadiums rocking and at other times you could hear the chirp of crickets. Too often the momentum of the game dictated the excitement level of the crowd, when actually the opposite is true. The excitement of the crowd has a direct impact on the momentum of the game.
When you have someone supporting you, encouraging you, wearing your colors and chanting your name, you feel as if there is nothing you cannot achieve.  The bible speaks to the importance of being a fan of others.  In Hebrews 10 we see the writer encouraging Christians to exhort and strengthen other be…
