Progressing

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

It is a good Day; There are many new changes here at SCCC. We are progressing, and healthy church that is moving into preparations to serve our community better. Now there is a new website that we are just finishing up. We have now been on YouTube for several weeks to expand our visibility. We divided a classroom to make a clean storage area. Don installed a new light in the balcony where some meetings won’t be in the shadows anymore. (yes I said it.) The fellowship hall got a much-needed facelift. And as of March 5, the kitchen is closed! What will I do without a kitchen? Yes, we will be clearing the kitchen to make way for a renovation of the old kitchen which will be joined to the older kitchen so that the two will become a more modern and space-efficient kitchen.  And this past Sunday we installed two new elders and a new deacon to our leadership team. SCCC is a growing and moving church. Now stop watching us and join us.

Coming up is a baptism. One of our young ladies has expressed she has never been baptized and wishes to express her faith by baptism. So put April 7 on your calendar and be ready to witness her expression of faith and obedience in baptism.

There is a Newcomers’ potluck dinner on March 4. It is a dinner and a presentation for the new people in our church who wish to learn more about SCCC. And perhaps you have been coming to this church for a while longer than a newcomer, well you can come too. Bring your favorite dish to share.

Now do you know this; the youth have been collecting musical instruments and creating their own worship team. What they lack is a good-quality bass guitar. You have seen them on the worship platform at Christmas. Two of the youth are regulars in our Sunday worship team. If someone has a good bass to donate or could sell, please write to us or contact Pastor Mayra at the church.

Sunday, we looked at the error of Joshua and Israel. Yes, they made a terrible mistake, and it cost them for generations. In chapter nine we read about an alliance of armies that were going to attack Israel. Except for one tribe of people, the Gibeonites. They took a different approach. They dressed and acted like they had come from a faraway land. They came with words of reverence for Joshua and his people. They acted the part of being weary travelers from a faraway land and wanted to make peace with Israel.

Joshua and his people fell for the lie and allied with them, only to learn later that they had been lied to. These were a neighboring tribe and Joshua could not go back on his word. Instead, they kept peace with them and employed them as woodcutters and for hauling water for the people of Israel.

They had looked at the evidence that was presented and talked about it and never spoke or sought the counsel of God on the matter.

In a world where propaganda, lies, failing governments, and twisted science is thrown at us we also find ourselves trying to sort out the truth. But it is even more personal than simply sorting out the news. What people say to you about you can also be harmful. Perhaps even more harmful. People tell us a lie and if we accept it as a truth, it can be a foundation in us for creating a different person than whom God wanted us to be. The question comes down to, what lies have you received and believed that are stealing you from the destiny and beauty of who you are?

My challenge to people is to look in the mirror and ask who am I? And why do I believe I am that person? Have I believed lies about myself? I encourage you to get a vision of who you are, from God. Go and consult him in prayer. Ask him, who you are.

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 complement 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, and 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 educational and inspirational 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 us with 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.
