Young and old people

It is a good Day;  About a year ago, my friend and yours, Howard, became ill and then never recovered but passed away. His memorial service is held at the church on Thursday, November 2 at 4 pm. I hope you can make it. It will also be available on Facebook. There is a fb page “Updates on Howard” or our church fb page, where you can get that information. Instead of flowers, please donate to the school, C.E.C., that Howard was so passionate about. For that information contact SCCC or one of Howard’s family and we will forward you those details.

The SCCC youth were very encouraged with the event and sales of their food snacks to raise some extra funds for a conference, the weekend of November 17. The response to them was very well received and they were delighted. Thank you church.

It is that time of year where I sit on my veranda and enjoy sunshine, meanwhile in the north they are shoveling snow. The smartest birds go south and attend SCCC for the winter. It was a delight this Sunday to look about and see my friends returning. Sometimes I just want to sit on the platform and look at their faces of these who are the family of the SCCC. Welcome back!

In attendance this past Sunday was Pastor Rich and Karen Hubert. What a privilege to meet this couple. They will be in attendance for a week or so. I hope you get an opportunity to meet them. Rich resigned in 2013 and is here for a visit for Howard Dyck’s memorial service.

Please continue to pray for Randy M and Ethel D for their healing. Pray for Jack F who suffered a stroke.

Coming up on November 12 after worship service we have five people who wish to be baptized. Come to celebrate and give a witness to their act of faith.

 

Sunday, we continued in the series of “Who is Jesus?”  The week before we had looked at Jesus as the king. That was easy to view as Jesus as king. But almost counter to that is the view of Jesus as servant. We started with the word from Philippians 2:5-11 where we are told that Jesus emptied himself of his position, and humbled himself and became obedient to death! My challenge is can we do that too?

What of me? Can I abandon my hopes, dreams and goals for the position in life that Christ may call me to for his purposes? Can I push others ahead at my expense? Can I empty myself of my agenda and self importance enough to just listen to another and not have to fill their ears with all my wisdom? It is a challenge!

In John’s gospel we find a record of the Last Supper. In reference to John 13:1 It was just before the Passover began, and they were gathered in the upper room, for what we know as the Last Supper. The end of verse one says, “Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.” What was that end? Was it to his last breath or to the end of their supper or to the end of time?  Many may say it was to the end of the supper or to the cross and his last breath, but I would suggest to the end of time, which has no end, therefore his love is continuous. Jesus is still loving and still a king yet serving us by his death and resurrection. By that act he made possible what we cannot do for ourselves!

Romans 12:10 says we are to out do one another in love! If there is any completion in the kingdom, let’s not argue who is the greatest but to empty ourselves of self promotions and agendas, and be servants to one another trying to out do one another in love. Christ did!
An as we are called to be imitators of him, we too are called to serve others in acts they, perhaps, cannot do for themselves!

So, my challenge is to imitate Jesus. It is to serve one another by the example he gave us.

Blessings, Chuck. Next Sunday, Jesus as Saviour and Judge.

Right Now Media. Is ready! SCCC has taken a one year membership with Rightnow Media. We are offering this resource to SCCC. I love using Rightnow Media and am very excited that you will be able to have this material resource too! It contains biblical educational videos that have accompanying study books that compliment the video, these can be used for group study or personal study. The studies available are of books of the Bible and also some that are topical. There are resources for adults, men, women, teens and videos teaching for children. I also found ‘conference’ videos that you can take advantage of. In all there are 20,000 videos available. That is a lot of education and inspiration material. The purpose of SCCC in offering this to you is to give you the resources to explore your faith and grow in Christian maturity.

This membership provides for us material in English and Spanish, so it suits our church community very well. Please take advantage of this material and let us know what you think.
