COLONY Larry Wittmer gave the Communion meditation Sunday at Colony Christian Church about how our lives are full of unplanned situations. Unplanned travel stops can be either good, or not so good. 2 Corinthians 11 tells us about how Paul was beaten, stoned, shipwrecked, etc. But Romans 8:8 also tells us God works all things together for good for those that love Him, even horrible things like what Paul went through. We should embrace those unplanned stops, because Jesus is present in every single one of them.
Pastor Chase Riebel is preaching on a series over the Sermon on the Mount (i.e. The Beatitudes). We often feel what will make us happy is things, but that happiness doesnt last because there is no real meaning to it. Matthew 5:3-4 tells us that God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. (Ref: Matthew 5-7, Luke 18:9-14, Philippians 3:7-8, 1 Timothy 6:6, James 4:7-10, Romans 7:14-20, Matthew 9:36-38, Psalm 51:7-17)
Mens Bible study is at 7 a.m. Tuesday. The Wednesday meal is at 5:30 p.m., followed by adult Bible study at the Crossroads Parsonage and youth group at 7 oclock at the church.
