Happy New Year

I Am the New Year

I am the new year. I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.

I am your next chance at the art of living. I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the last twelve months.

All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search it but with more determination.

All the good that you tried for and didn’t achieve is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.

All that you dreamed but didn’t dare to do, all that you hoped but did not will, all the faith that you claimed but did not have—these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of a strong purpose. I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to Him who said, "Behold, I make all things new."

Caroling This Week

Yesterday at Antioch was a day filled with the beauty of Christmas.  In the morning service, the choir blessed with a beautiful presentation of "The Gift Goes On', where God's Gift of His Son Jesus was shared, adored and passed along.  In the evening service, the children did a wonderful job on the play "Star of Wonder".  Thank you to all who were involved in bringing the true Christmas spirit to life.

On Wednesday night, instead of regular prayer meeting at the church, we will go Christmas caroling!  You are encouraged to meet at the church and be ready to leave at 5:30 PM to visit several of our local shut in members and bring some Christmas cheer to them.  Following the caroling, we will meet at the home of Dave and Kathy B. for some refreshments and fellowship.

A special treat will be for our children to pass out goodie bags to the shut ins. Parents, please bring the children at 4:30 PM and send along a baked treat (cookie, candy etc.).  The children will package the goodie bags and present them while caroling. 

Hope that you will take part in a great opportunity to spread the joy of Christmas!

Worth the Risk

 Worth the risk

God is doing some incredible things in the North African region of Kabylia. Neither Islam nor the heightened level of persecution aimed at believers like Pastor Karim* can stop His desire to bring the Kabyle Berbers to salvation through Jesus Christ. Southern Baptists are privileged to be used by God in this region and to witness the power of the Holy Spirit among this people group. For just $4, Christian workers can buy a New Testament in the Kabyle language. When they read the living Word of God, they are filled with a boldness and strength that comes only from the Lord.

When Karim reads the words of the apostle Paul from his Bible, he identifies with an insight greater than most Christians in the U.S. will ever have. Like Paul, Karim has been beaten, threatened with death and spit upon. He’s witnessed the intense persecution of fellow believers and walked through the ashes and rubble of the building where his church worshipped. Still his faith, and the faith of fellow Christians, remains strong. This is not a church in hiding. This is a church witnessing and evangelizing its own people, even those who persecute them.

For every Bible that’s taken away and burned, they pray that God will provide the means to replace it. Through our faithful giving to Lottie Moon, we provide not only Bibles in the Kabyle language but Christian radio and television programs and an ongoing structure that allows Christian workers to engage Northern African and Middle Eastern peoples.

Where Does the Money Go?

When we give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, where does the money go?
Every penny given to Lottie Moon is used to support Southern Baptist missionaries as they share the Gospel overseas. The offering represents 55 percent of the International Mission Board’s total income.

The "New" Other Half...

A first grade teacher collected old, well-known proverbs. She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb, and had them come up with the rest. Here are some interesting results:

It's always darkest before... daylight savings time.

Don't bite the hand that... looks dirty.

You can't teach an old dog new... math.

Happy is the bride who... gets all the presents!

A penny saved is... not much.

Children should be seen and not... spanked or grounded.

If at first you don't succeed... get new batteries.

Are You Prepared To Fight?

"The Christian life is a battleground instead of a playground."

Christians face three enemies:
1.  The World - All around us that is opposed to God.
2.  The Flesh - Our old nature inherited from Adam.
3.  The Devil - The enemy of God and all Christians who roams and seeks who he may devour.

Truths To Help Us Walk In In Victory

1.  We Must Know Our Enemy:  Never underestimate the power of the enemy.
2.  We Must Have the Proper Equipment To Fight:  God has provided armor for us to be effective as a soldier of God.  (Ephesians 6:13-147)
3.  We Must Be Energized:  Prayer is the energy that equips us to be in God's strength.  Always pray as we are always subject to temptation. 
4.  We Must Be An Encouragement:  We as Christians are not alone in the battle.  We are soldiers together and should encourage one another.

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

What is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®?
Southern Baptist churches collect the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for the sole purpose of supporting international missions. Every penny of the offering goes to the International Mission Board’s overseas budget, thus supporting our missionaries and their work.

What is the 2010 theme?
The 2010 theme is "Are we there yet?" For the first time in history, we can identify the people groups that remain untouched by the Gospel. We can get there in our generation! But that last part of the journey may be the hardest. It will take all of us - our churches, our missionaries, our national partners, our Great Commission partners.

What Can Our Church Do?
 Our church members’ dollars in the offering plate translate to souls saved for the kingdom of heaven. It’s the biggest reason to celebrate the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®. Join us on (date) at (time) as we celebrate our offering with a (dinner, festival etc.). We’ll have (video, drama, music, testimonies, etc.) as we witness God’s hand at work around the world.  The goal for our church is $4,000.00.

Ten Commandments For Marriage

The Ten Commandments of Marriage:

1. Do not place others before one another. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife.

2. Let nothing on earth become more important than your marriage. Seek first God’s will in your marriage and the other things will come as He desired.

3. Speak to one another with kindness and love. Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word kindly spoken.

4. Remember to worship together. Oh come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For He is our God.

5. Love and accept one another’s family as your own. Your people shall be my people.

6. Do not harm one another with words, attitudes, or action. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor and evil speaking be put away from you…and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ has forgiven you.

7. Be faithful to one another. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. And the two shall become one flesh.

8. Never take joy for one another. Above all things put on love, which holds everything together in perfect harmony.

9. Always speak the truth in love. The Lord will show you what is right and true, that you may always speak with integrity.

10. Do not desire or be envious of what others may have. I have learned that in whatsoever state I may be, to be content.

Make Me A Blessing

Our church is blessed to have so many who share God's love, grace and kindness to one another.  In our day and time, life demands and drains us at times.  Every now and again, it may benefit us to reflect on ways to be a blessing to one another.  Here is a little checklist to assess your success in being a blessing at church.  May it motivate us to seek out and purposefully be a blessing.

1. Do you take the time to greet other church members warmly?
2.  Do you regularly share a friendly hug or hearty handshake?
3.  Do you pray for members of the congregation?
4.  Do you let the pastor and other leaders know when they have done a good job?
5.  Do you encourage the younger members?
6.  Do you fellowship (socialize) with any members outside of church?
7.  Do you bring others to church?
8.  Do you share what you are learning in Sunday School/church with others?
9.  Does someone in the congregation make you feel important?
10.  Is there someone whom you feel could benefit from you being a blessing to them?

"The blessing of a church is only as strong as each member's commitment. "

Prayer and Updates This Week

As we begin a new week (don't they just seem to fly by?), there are a few updates and prayer requests to share.

  • Chip C. suffered an injury to his hip and is having some trouble with his sugar levels.
  • Rufus S. has cancer and also some blood clots they need to treat.

Verse of the Day

Imitating Our Heavenly Father

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.  As followers of God, we should imitate God and live our lives as to reflect the things of God to the world around us.

Ephesians 5:1-3 gives encouragement to:

Walk In Love - Love is the fundamental basis in a Christian's life.
a. We are God's children, our new nature as Christians should be to show God's love to others.
b.  We are God's beloved children.  We should show our love to God by the way we live our life.
c.  We have been purchased by a great cost.

Walk As Children of the Light
Christians should not have anything to do with darkness.  We should be set apart.  Through salvation, we have been called out of darkness and into the light of Christ.  It is important to gage what we allow into our lives and homes.  Our lives should be different from those who do not know Christ.  Light produces righteousness, reveals truth and when we walk in God's light, it reveals God's light to others.

Jefferson's Ten Rules

Never put off until tomorrow  what you can do today.

Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.

Never spend your money before you earned it.

Never buy what you don't want because it is cheap.

Pride costs more than hunger, thirst and cold.

We seldom repent of having eaten too little.

Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.

How much pain the evils have cost us
that have never happened.

Take things always by the smooth handle.

When angry, count ten before you speak
if very angry, count a hundred.

President Thomas Jefferson

Welcome, November

 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Hebrews 12:1,2

Today is recognized as All Saint's Day where the church has traditionally set aside to honor the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us in the faith.  God's Word shares a number of ordinary people equipped with God's power and presence to do extra ordinary things for God's glory.  These men and women of God are examples to us today of diligence, faithfulness, boldness and wisdom.  

Here is a brief look at the coming events in November for our church.  Traditionally, this month jump starts the busiest time of the year.   Before that starts, may be begin cultivating a heart of gratitude for all of God's blessings and enjoy the beauty of opportunity with our church family.

  • November 3 ~ Family Meal ~ Soup, Salad, Sandwich Night!  6:00 PM
  • November 6 ~ Daylight Saving Time ends - set clocks back one hour
  • November 12 ~ Ladies Retreat - Beautiful Inside and Out ~ 6:30 PM
  • November 13 ~ Cross Heirs men's event - Branford
  • November 21 ~ Church Thanksgiving Meal
  • November 21 ~ Bring in Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes
  • November 23 ~ Prayer Meeting (Tuesday night)
Mark your calendars and take part in the activities you are able to.
