When the apostle John called Christ, the Word or the Logos, in John 1:1; 1 John 1:1; and Revelation 19:13, he used a term that had great significance in the Greek culture of the Mediterranean world. In their society with many gods, the god who created the world was above all the rest. Since John was clearly giving Jesus credit in creating the world, he was proclaiming Jesus to be the most high God. Jews, however, used Logos as a way to refer to God. So when John used the word Logos he caught the attention of both Greeks and Jews, saying that the Logos was indeed divine, but was also a person – Jesus of Nazareth. This Sunday we will look at how the Spirit of God, working through the Word of God, brings revival to God’s people.
This week, we’ll celebrate America’s Independence Day with a church-wide picnic at Lay Lake from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. You’re all invited to our property for hot dogs, fellowship, and fun! Sign up sheets will be in the foyer Sunday, along with directions. Bring a cooler with drinks for your family and friends. Water will be provided. You’ll want to bring bathing suits, dry clothes, towels, chairs, sunscreen, and bug spray. CCW will be providing the hot dogs, but please bring a side dish or finger foods to share with everyone. My favorite is a frozen churn of ice cream or a cold watermelon, cut and ready to eat. We’ll eat at 12:30 p.m.
For our fellowship meal after church, we’ll have a teriyaki chicken stir fry with fried rice and mixed vegetables. Please bring your favorite dish to share with our guests and the CCW family. What you bring adds such variety to our meal. Thank you for pitching in and helping with the set up of the tables and chairs, the serving of the food or the clean up. Many hands make light work!
Join us for Bible study at 8:45, Sunday.
Jesus is Awesome!
