What's happening October 21-27

October is Pastor Appreciation Month

The support pastors & staff feel from their congregations have been shown as one of the most significant factors for their effectiveness and well-being. Your support places you in partnership with them and leads to greater benefits for you ( the church) and them. Plan to do something extra special for our ministers & staff this month.

HOW CAN WE SHOW OUR LOVE AND SUPPORT
It is as simple as writing a letter, sending a card, or giving a gift of appreciation. Please include their spouse with your thoughts and gifts of appreciation.

Thank you for your love, support, and service in ministry as the body of Christ,

Debbie Fredrickson
Office Manager
El Camino Baptist Church

 


 

Sunday's Message
October 21, 2018

HONESTLY GIVE IT UP

I’ve heard Christians say, “Why can’t we be like the First Century Church?”  I’m wondering what Bible and history books they’re reading.  Yes, the First Century Church grew like wildfire.  But it also had its problems.  There was prejudice, jealously, stubbornness, legalism, neglect, false beliefs and a critical spirit.  The book of Acts and the letters of the apostles reveal some deep seated problems. 

I’ve also heard people say, “The church is worse than the world!”  Are you kidding me?  Have you ever been to a Little League Baseball game?  Last Sunday I defended an elderly lady who was being yelled at by a man in a restaurant parking lot.  She kept apologizing to him for almost running into his car but he kept yelling at her.  I challenged him to stop yelling at the lady, so he started yelling at me while the lady escaped.  He challenged me to a fight but I simply told him that we need to be civil. 

The world has its problems and the church has its problems.  But I’m not leaving either one till the Lord calls me home.

Sunday I’m preaching on “Honestly Give It Up” from Acts 4:32-5:11 about Ananias and Sapphira lying to the Holy Spirit.  Everyone else in the church in Jerusalem had given up everything for Jesus.  Each person sold all that he had and laid the money at the disciples’ feet.  So, Ananias and Sapphira lied about selling all their possessions and bringing all the proceeds to the church.  When confronted with their lies both of them fell dead.  Dread spread over the church and community.  Everyone got the message:  Honestly give everything to Jesus.  Hold nothing back.  It’s the only way to have joy, peace and eternal effectiveness.

Let’s not lie to each other, and let’s especially not lie to the Holy Spirit.  When you receive Jesus as Lord and Savior you’re saying



All to Jesus I surrender, all to him I freely give.

I will ever love and trust him, in his presence daily live.
 

As we give everything to Jesus (money, material goods, family, relationships, hopes, dreams, sins, worry, anger, irritation, past, present and future), Jesus leads us and works through us.  We feel light on our feet, our heart feels carefree and we impact eternity.  Join us Sunday and learn with us how to honestly give it all to Jesus.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to invite people to our Fall Festival this Saturday.  You can also help us set up on Friday and break everything down on Saturday at 3:00.

Love,
Dr. Jim Meek

Youth Ministry Update

The Lord's Word to God's People

 

We’ve finished the Old Testament!  Malachi is only four chapters long, about a page and a half… read and enjoy!

Upcoming Lessons:

  • Sunday 10/21
    • Luke 13:31-35 – 14:1-6: Life and times of Jesus of Nazareth.
    • PDYM Part 1:  Who is our audience
  • Wednesday 10/24: The play, the play!

Event Updates:

  • Ignition: December 26-30
    • Second payment due by 10/31.

Prayer Requests:

  • Student Work Scholarship: We need work to do.  Please pray that people would be moved to assist our students in raising the money for Ignition.
     
  • Gratitude: I am not very good at expressing gratitude beyond those in front of me.  Please pray for me that I can be more appreciative of those who help from afar.  Our ministry would not exist were it not for God’s blessing through His church.

Youth Director


WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO IMPACT THE LIFE OF ONE STUDENT?

Become involved in the STUDENT WORK SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.

This program is designed to be an opportunity for our students to earn donations toward their entry to large youth events. This is an opportunity for students to learn to manage their money properly and budget towards large goals.

How this program works:

1) Fill out a Student Work Scholarship Submission Form (online form) and turn it into the church office attention, Greg Horton, either by putting it in the offering plate on Sunday or handing it to Greg in person.

2) All submissions will be reviewed by the youth leader and put on the submission board in the youth room.

3) Students will select which jobs they are willing to take on and will work with their parents to fulfill the request.

4) Once the job is done, the student or parents will collect the agreed upon amount. Please do not write a check to the church or to the youth ministry, but rather the student who did the work.

5) If the job is not taken within the period of a month, or before the due date, for any reason, the youth leader will contact the affected party.

Thank you,

Greg Horton
Youth Director
