Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord,
because you know your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
–1 Corinthians 15:58b (NIV)
We are always glad to have visitors with us. Among our guests last Sunday was Aubrey Gessner, a friend of Karen Redding. Also with us were friends of Danny Yencich, Ryan and Erica Lee and their children.
LEADERS MEETING THIS AFTERNOON
We will have a leaders meeting today after our morning worship assembly. All members are invited. Or, you may let a leader know of anything you’d like to have discussed.
Robert and Jana Lee have a new granddaughter, safely born early last Sunday. They appreciate our prayers.
Barb Plucheck is suffering from congestive heart failure. She greatly appreciates visits, cards, and especially your prayers… Charles Davenport, Sr. is somewhat improved and is still at the Life Care Rehabilitation Center.
ONGOING PRAYER CONCERNS
Please continue in prayer for these loved ones and their various needs:
- Wendy Robertson, Katrina Gallo, Karauna Taito, Deby Mahoney, Carah Barnes, Karl Simms, Gwendolyn Fisher, Danielle Fisher, Faye Young, André Kidd, Betty Fox, and Joan Wilkes.
- Our loved ones in the armed forces and law enforcement and their families: Paul Germany, Anthony Patterson, and Lawrence Hilton.
EXPRESSIONS OF THANKS
A nice “thank you” card (with her new address) from Angela Taylor is on the bulletin board. She is very grateful for the positive impact this congregation has had on her family.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
The shoe boxes collection for Operation Christmas Child has been extended to today. Please see Margaret Rossow with any questions.
COLORADO CHRISTIAN SERVICES
For the next two Sundays, Jana Lee will be carrying around a miniature bassinet to collect money for the CCS Annual Fundraising Campaign.
UPCOMING AICS EVENTS
Aurora Interfaith Community Services, one of the largest organizations assisting the disadvantaged in our area, has two important events coming up:
- Open House – Thursday, October 25 at their newly remodeled building at 1553 Clinton Street in Aurora.
- 50th Anniversary Celebration – Friday, November 9th at The Summit Event Center, from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. Individual tickets cost $30. More information is on the bulletin board.
CHRISTIAN RELIEF FUND
The most recent CRF newsletter is on the bulletin board. It tells of work being done for orphans, as well as efforts in Indonesia after a major earthquake and in areas in the US affected by recent hurricanes.
How can we overcome those fears that interfere with our service to God? This is the subject for our lesson this morning as we continue our series, “Victory in Christ Jesus.”
At 2:00 we will show another video in the series of sermons by Rick Atchley on the subject of heaven.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT STUDY
We plan to conclude Lesson 4 in the series of studies on the subject of “Discipleship.” God desires all followers of Christ to participate in being witnesses for God and Christ. It is important to recognize that although God does this work, he uses people to accomplish his purposes in the world.
