Sunday's Message
June 3, 2018



There is a 1,600 year old Roman chalice in the British Museum bearing the image of Lycurgus the supposed king of Thrace who scorned Dionysus the god of wine.  As punishment Dionysus caused vines to ensnare Lycurgus and cast him into Hades.  Many ancient cups bear Lycurgus’ image being ensnared by the vines to show the danger of ignoring the god of wine! The strange thing about the cup in the British museum is that when you shine a light on the front of the cup it is jade green.  When you shine the light on the back of the cup it is blood red.  The cup also changes colors depending on what king of liquid is in it.  Recently scientists discovered the secret of the cup.  It is impregnated with gold and silver flakes.  Each flake is fifty nanometers in diameter or 1/1000 the size of table salt.  This makes the ancient Romans experts in nanotechnology!  It was a special cup for a special king!

Paul wrote to Timothy that Christians need to be special vessels for our Lord.  Sunday I’m preaching on “BE AN HONORABLE VESSEL” from 2 Timothy 2:14-22.  Paul wrote that we need to concentrate on God’s word, “accurately handling the word of truth,” and to concentrate on being a pure “vessel of honor.”  When we have the same immorality as the world we have nothing to offer the world.  Also, immorality grieves God, it saddens us and destroys families, churches and nations.  Only Satan and his demons profit from Christian immorality.
Please attend church Sunday and be inspired to be a pure vessel.

By the way, Saturday at 7:00 a.m. at our Men’s Breakfast I’ll give a devotion on “How to Have an Awesome Summer” from Psalm 24.  We’ll also pray, sing and eat the best bacon west of the Mississippi.  We’d love to have you men in attendance!


With love in Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek

Joseph, Marina, Thenujen, Kaylynn, Ali, Malachi, and Sienna, each did a wonderful job last night serving Wednesday Night Dinner.  Each was willing to learn and stepped up to the plate when called upon.  We are truly blessed to have such fantastic students and families at our church.

Theresa, Arlinda, Betty, Betty, and Judy blessed our ministry by providing the exceptional food last night.  From our ministry to yours, we cannot thank you enough for the work you put in to make the dinner easy to serve and tasty to eat.

We are gearing up for the Mexico Mission Trip (two weeks left!), Summer Camp (only four weeks away!), VBS (five weeks!) and preparing ourselves for the excitement to come.  This will be a busy summer for our Youth Ministry and my family.  Each and every moment at these events is a blessing to be a part of, and we look forward to being involved in each.

I find myself acting as Martha and feeling as Mary (Luke 10:38-42).  Due to my own inexperience, I am running around crazy “distracted by all the preparations that have to be made,” and yet, I am invigorated by the challenge God has entrusted me with and worship him even more in my inexperience for wisdom and guidance.  God has used this time to shape my ministry, calling and heart to lean on him more and trust his bride with the work being brought to me.  In my life, I cannot remember a heart yanking, voice-in-the-stillness, come-to-Jesus moment, that brought me to Christ, but I can recall many times when God has strategically used challenges and the desires of my character to pull me closer to Him.  I thank God that he works in mysterious ways, and for his personal involvement in salvation.

Upcoming Lessons:

  • Sunday 6/3: Luke 10:1-24: “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few”
  • Wednesday 6/6: Daniel: the story of a man with his head in the clouds.

Event Updates:

  • July 2nd-7th: Centrifuge Summer Camp
  • July 9th-13th: Game On! Vacation Bible School

Prayer Requests:

  • Mexico Mission Trip: We have some students joining us for the first time!
  • Summer Camp: It’s coming up fast!
  • School is almost out!: Each of our students wish to join with their church in praise over the end of another school year, and ask for prayer for the summer and school that is to come.

The missions and evangelism team is gearing up for this Summer's activities. Everyone is looking forward to the church's participation in the Annual Arden-Arcade 4th of July Parade. Each year, we enter a float in the parade to promote our church and Vacation Bible School to our community. It is a great opportunity for us to spotlight our church to the community in this very visible venue. We do our very best to provide a service to our community through offering family-friendly activities and a safe place for our children to thrive.

JUNE 15-22 2018


Last but not least, our Missions Team is heading off to partner with Pastor Carlos of La Roca Ministries of Tijuana, Mexico. The team will spend several days helping the La Roca Missionaries work in the field to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of men, women, and children in the local area.

La Roca Ministries reaches out to touch people’s lives that are devastated by poverty, neglect, and despair. These people find themselves enslaved to drugs and alcohol and living in the streets of Tijuana, Mexico. Our desire is to mirror Christ’s compassion and concern to these people.

It has been said, “give a person a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a life.” We believed in “teaching people how to fish”. We want to see lives transformed and we believe that comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our program seeks to help rebuild lives by making disciples; raising up men, women, and teens as future leaders and missionaries, and sending them forth to advance the Kingdom of God on earth. Thank you for your prayers and financial support. You are making a difference today and for eternity! ≈ Pastor Carlos
