A change of leadership always requires adjustments. The children of Israel experienced this with King Uzziah in Isiaiah 6, as we studied a few weeks ago. They also experienced it when Moses died. The book of Joshua begins with this comment. “Moses, my servant has died…” (Joshua 1:2). Joshua is waiting, he is available which makes Him usable. All those years of Joshua’s service and training under Moses had prepared Joshua for leadership of an entire nation. Because Joshua was prepared, teachable, and available and eager to know and serve God, he was used to lead the nation of Israel into the Promised Land. The Lord may have a great task or work for us down the road too. Our responsibility is to spiritually prepare ourselves by getting to know God in an intimate way, so that when God appoints us for a specific role, we are ready. This Sunday we will look at how God encouraged Joshua before he took leadership over the nation Israel. This same encouragement is available to us!
AWANA began Wednesday, September 5th with over 50 in attendance. Bring your children, your neighbors’ and friends’ children to plant the seed of the word of God in their hearts through games and fun! Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15).
ONE WAY, designed for teenagers under the direction of Pastor Rick Wright, had a great group Wednesday night with 81 teenagers and workers for this high-energy, fun time of fellowship and spiritual growth through the Word. Encourage the teenagers in your life to come be a part of this weekly opportunity! It could change their lives!
For our fellowship meal after church, we’ll have smoked pork butts with potato salad, corn and baked beans. 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 as we continue the Experiencing God Bible study at 8:45, Sunday.
Jesus is Awesome!
