Pastor’s Desk

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

It is a good Day, We all survived the youth event. It was awesome. Much of it I did not understand! But I know enough Spanish to get the jest of it. The music was supreme. I was so impressed with our worship band, and all the volunteers. Mike, or properly Miguel, is Pastor Mayra’s brother. He attends a church in Guaymas. He was at this event every minute and usually as the door man. His duty seemed to be just insuring that the doors stayed close to aid the air conditioning. Such an unrecognized servant position!

Pastor Mayra sang her heart out. Christie learned all about Christian rock worship music and was dancing all over the keyboard. There was one song she was familiar with but said she had never played it that fast. Ryan was here for just 4 days and gave so much time to making the music happen. And now he is gone again on another road trip through MX to promote the school and contact churches along the way. Pete is not familiar with Spanish. He said he just kept up to the cord changes by listening to key words in a verse, as he really didn’t know what the songs were about. I think young Hiram had it easiest on the drums.

There is a cleaning lady here, named Lupita. Saturday, the busiest day, she came in and just worked as if no one was here. She cleaned for eight hours even with all these young people here. Good job, thank you for your services.

Sunday I walked in and the sanctuary was almost normal looking. The team did a good job of packing up and cleaning up the room. They left and came back six hours later for our Sunday worship service. The first person I saw was Pastor Mayra with a mop, cleaning up a bit.

On Friday I estimated there were 160 youth here. Many were touched by the teaching and the hand of God. You can go to the Facebook page and watch many of the events of the weekend. And on Instagram look for the page jovenes_inquebrantables for little short videos of the event.

Now this week, “Back to our regular scheduled program.”

Hurry home everyone!

Sunday, This week we looked at the steps to take to humility. We first learned a new song, well new to those under 50. “Oh lord it is hard to be humble, when you are perfect in every way.” Yes I was kind enough not to sing and just use the video clip of the song by Mac Davis. Then we examined Philippians 2 :3- 7, as the example that Jesus gave to us of humility.

It comes down to, are you humble enough about yourself to put others first? Would you consider other’s preferences more important than your own?  We looked at being modest in your talk and behaviour. As a leader can we be humble enough to serve and not demand to be served? Remembering as Christian leaders that Jesus was willing and able and did wash the feet of his students, who by the way, were just talking about who was the greatest of them all!

Perhaps we should treat pride as a virus. Do all we can not to operate in pride. Avoid people who are full of self indulgence and pride. Thinking, yeah, I hope that isn’t catching. We often become like the people we spend time with. And in our words, how do we sound? Do we sound humble in our speech or full of ourselves?

So much to consider and to watch for! Finally let me leave you with Romans 12:10.

Blessings, Pastor Chuck.  Next week, “Be a Zac.”  A look at Luke 19:1-8.

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.
