“Three Questions”

By Pastor Don Nelson

 On Sunday, October 8, Emily Nelson will be confirmed in Christian faith. I hope you are able to join us in worship on that significant day!

The Confession of Faith is the defining element of the Rite of Confirmation. It consists of three questions which are an excellent tool of spiritual self-examination.

Question 1: “Do you confess personal faith in Jesus Christ and desire, with God’s help, to be his disciple?” This is the question of a reconciled relationship with God the Father and subsequent discipleship through the ministry of God the Son.

How MOPS Has Been The Body Of Christ

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
–1 Corinthians 12:27

I’ve been attending MOPS regularly for about three years. I have been continually amazed at the women I’ve met—vibrant Christ-followers who strive to love God and live out his Word. I’ve gone through family struggles, heath concerns, an unexpected pregnancy, and anxiety, and through it all, MOPS has been there for me. Truly, MOPS has been the Body of Christ—“Jesus with skin on”—in so many ways.
In this brief article, I just wanted to share come examples of the way MOPS moms have supported me.

Our next P.A.D.S. event for the fall season will be a dinner on Saturday, October 14th at 5:00 p.m. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex, just outside the lounge, for those who wish to volunteer. For more information, see Harold Burton, Cheryl Christ or Ken Gray.

The fourth Sunday in October is the date we set aside to partner with all of the churches in North America in a concerted fund-raising effort. This is the one time of the year when we ask for nation-wide donations of only $1.00, but from 100% of those worshipping on Sunday morning. 100% Sunday has the potential to be a significant part of our fundraising efforts. In addition, this allows everyone throughout the church body to invest in our work here spiritually, emotionally and financially. This fundraiser helps to assure the continued daily service to listeners in over 100 villages of Western Alaska and up to 3,000 miles into the Russian Far East.
