Pastor’s Update

Dear friend of Pine Mountain Christian Community Church,
As we have gone through the book of Acts on Sunday mornings, it has been encouraging to see the great privilege we all have to represent Jesus, the King of heaven and earth, and to further His kingdom! In the book of Acts, we have seen the Holy Spirit work through individuals, groups, married couples and families. All of us have this awesome calling to represent Jesus wherever He sends us! As we continue through the next several months, it will be obvious that God is calling everyone on earth to come to Him. Those who come to Him enter into a relationship with the true and living God that will continue throughout eternity. We have also seen that there is a stark difference between God’s kingdom and the pagan world. We see that same difference today – God’s holiness is in direct opposition to the immorality and self-centeredness of today’s society. I know God will continue to speak to us and give us direction in today’s environment as we gather to worship, pray, and listen to God’s Word.
PLEASE NOTE THESE COMMENTS AND UPCOMING EVENTS:
* The last three weeks have been three weeks of amazing blessings for me and for our fellowship! Three weeks ago, Linda and I attended the Evangelical Church Alliance annual conference and we were both challenged and inspired as we learned from God’s Word and heard stories of what God is doing in the lives of His people around the world. Two weeks ago, I took six Jr. High kids from our community to a 5 day Christian Camp. Four of the kids trusted Jesus as their Savior and King, and all but two of them came to serve at our Vacation Bible School last week! And Speaking of our VBS, it was wonderful to have so many volunteers – we actually had 33 volunteers, and 18 of them were from our youth ministries! We had 25 kids attend the VBS, and 23 of them trusted Jesus as their Savior and King! In addition, the kids brought offerings as well as cans and bottles to turn into cash, and they raised $402 to help support our missionary in Greece!
* John and Sachiko Loucky will soon be leaving for Oregon. We will have a “Send-off” prayer for them on Wednesday, August 21st in the Activities Center. Come pray and say “Good –Bye” to these special servants of the Lord.
