October 27th 2018 Fellowship Meeting

Brethren… What’s your Saturday morning looking like? Hope you can meet us!

Offenses Will Come
Inevitably, we will experience offenses by other people. Jesus said so Himself in Luke 17:1, “Then said he unto the disciples, ‘It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!'” By the term offenses, Jesus was referring to opportunities to stumble! When put in the proper perspective, Jesus was teaching that there will be moments when others will do or say things that will challenge our response. We can either respond gracefully or in ways that provoke sin.

As believers, God places a premium on how we handle people. It is often said, “Why are Christians supposed to be so forgiving and turn the other cheek?” as if nothing happens to the other person. Looking at Luke 17:1 the “woe” is assigned to the offender! Additionally, as Christians, we are expected to show Christ in how we conduct ourselves. So, how do we Christians handle offense?

Join us as Minister Jimi Emmons sheds light on this month’s theme, “Dealing with Offenses”. Our gathering is sure to be an amazing journey through scripture as the topic of offenses is unpacked!

Meet you there!

September 2018 Fellowship Meeting

Principles of Leadership:

Leaders understand the value of solitude.

Leaders spend lots of time alone.

Leaders understand that times of quiet are vital in life.

In the quiet we receive a clear vision from God.

We will never have the vision and the power amidst the noise and clatter of this world … we must get alone w/ God!

A leader sees more in the night than others see in the light.

Leaders understand the importance of solitude.

Leaders patiently gather all the facts.

Leaders don’t rush into a project ill prepared.

Before you can lead you have to learn. Leaders make a mess of things when they try to lead w/out doing their homework.

Nobody seems to have the time to do it right, but everybody finds the time to do it over. “Measure twice, cut once!”

Leaders keep their eye on the big picture.

Micromanagers and control freaks wear out and break down quickly!

Leaders carefully choose their words.

August 2018 Fellowship Meeting

The cry of people today is, “Show me how to live my life.” Give me meaning and understanding in this crazy world in which I live.” Godly Biblical preaching has to do with communicating the Word of God as truth, understood and applied. That will convict the sin-sick soul of his need for God. It will instruct the believer in the ways of righteousness. And it will never return to the Lord void!
