The Sunday Update | January 25, 2015

We’ve all heard “You can’t take it with you.” That’s true – kind of. It really depends on what “it” is. As James continues building the basics into the lives of new Christians, he encourages us to know there is something we can take with us, so we had better be placing our values in the right “it.” As we look into James 1:9-12, we’ll be looking for more wisdom into how to look at life, and how to order our priorities in this confusing world.

I’m praying that God will use this in our lives to move us to wiser living and a walk with God that gives us renewed meaning!

Periodic Business Meeting January 25th

Join us for our periodic business meeting tomorrow night January 25th at 6 PM. This is a great time to find out what’s happening around CEFC and to set the pace for our winter/spring trimester. Pre-school child care is provided.

The Springs Serve Team does it again!

The word is out that Saturday was a great success as the team once again worked out at the Springs at the Sorensen/Mersey home to rehab the residence. Word that I received says the team worked like a well-oiled machine and the reality is the work is being done that would be beyond the means to complete otherwise. Special thanks to John Antonio, Gerald Beckman, Mark Bridges,Austin Smith, Spencer Smith, Tim Spence, Peter Tabor, and Tim Weaver. That’s the current list I have; if I’ve left anyone out, it’s not on purpose! Blessings on you, and sincere thanks go out to all who have helped so generously on this project.

We get so tied up in the day-to-day affairs of life and start focusing on the wrong things and confusing our stuff with our identity. Tomorrow is a good day to get back on track. I’m praying that God will open our eyes to what’s truly important!

In Christ,
