Summer Slump


The summer months are upon us. Many churches face the summer in fear of the dreaded "SUMMER SLUMP". Many of our people go on vacation during the summer months and there is nothing wrong with that. All of us need time to relax and be renewed. Vacations are a great way to do that. Unfortunately, with more of our folks gone, our attendance may be lower than normal. However, if those of us who are in town will be faithful to our Lord by supporting our church, our attendance will remain high. This will show others how much we love and support our church.

Ephesians 5:16 tells us, ”Redeeming the time, because the days are evil." This means that time is precious. So we need to use it wisely this summer. 

Here are some ways to make the best use of your time this summer:

1. Be away as few Sundays as possible. Arrange your vacation to take the least time from the church and its ministries.

2. If you are a teacher or leader, be sure that someone has agreed to take over your responsibilities while you are gone.

3. Don't use the Lord's money for your vacation. There is no vacation from the responsibilities we have assumed as a church.

4. When you are away on vacation, make sure you attend church on the Lord's day.

     Hebrews 2:3 warns us, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?"

 

Let's make this summer one that glorifies the name of Jesus in all we do.

                                           

See You in CHURCH!

Christian UNITY


Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing-Life forevermore.   (Psalm 133:1-3) (NKJV)

In the spirit of unity and togetherness, things can be done much more quickly and much more easily. It has been said that one of the greatest problems facing the church today is a lack of unity. We are living in days where individualism has been raised to such a position of prominence that the very thought of people coming together to serve a common goal is considered absurd.

The truth is people are hungry and looking for a place where they can hear the truth from God's Word and where they can experience the joy of being with people who care about each other. There is enough hatred, enough indifference, enough loneliness and enough hurt in today's world. This is such a prime opportunity for the church to step up and stand out as a place where people can be treasured, valued and really loved. Let's make every effort to be that kind of church!

A church doesn't grow by going through a daily ritual, but she also doesn't grow without planning and definite cultiva­tion.                       Here are some proven ways to help a church grow spiritually:

1 Attending Bible Study together regularly.            

2. Worshipping together regularly

3. Having fun together.

4. Expressing love and affection for one another.

5. Under girding and supporting one another.

6. Working together; accepting responsibility for jobs in the church.

7. Reaching out to others as a Christian family.

Did you notice how many times the word "together" was used? When we pull together to do what God wants, Jesus said "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." (Matthew 16:18)

See You in CHURCH
