Love for the Church

main image

I want to thank everyone for praying for me and my family these past three weeks.  I have been through some very trying times, but God has been with me every step of the way.  I have been humbled by the expressions of love from my church family, and I treasure your prayers and friendship.

I want to express my gratitude for our church staff and support staff who have carried on in my absence.  What a wonderful and gifted group of people we have here at Wilmer.  I have certainly missed being present with my church family.  I have missed teaching and preaching because that is what God has called me to do.  One scripture has motivated me throughout my illness and recovery and it is Psalm 71:17-18:

“Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.  Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.”

I am getting stronger and I am back at work some this week. I plan to be back to church this Sunday and look forward to seeing everyone.  Thank you again my church family for praying for me and my family.  We love you all and look forward to continue serving the Lord with you.

With Love,

Bro. Terry

Being a Follower of Jesus

God’s plan for the ages involves calling people into a personal relationship with Christ.  Becoming a child of God through faith in the blood of Jesus is just part of God’s plan for our lives.  The call to salvation is a call to become a follower of Christ.  In the Gospels, Jesus invites us to consider His call on our lives and what it involves.  To be a follower of Christ means we have considered the cost of identifying with Jesus and surrendering our life to Him.  Jesus further said, “If anyone would be my disciple and come after me, let him deny himself daily and take up his cross and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24)

I believe that every truly born again believer has the desire to follow Christ and obey Him.  It is always a struggle to remain in fellowship with our Lord, but it is much easier when we are encouraged by other believers who struggle along with us.  That is why LifeGroups are so vital and so important.  They provide us an atmosphere of encouragement and acceptance and a way to grow in our faith and knowledge of the Lord.  Sunday evening, October 1st we will launch our LifeGroups with a gathering at church where you can sign up to be involved in a LifeGroup.

Our LifeGroups will meet the month of October and November and then take a break during December.  We will pick up with our LifeGroups from January to April and then take the summer off.  Everyone is strongly encouraged to be in a LifeGroup  The sacrifice you make will be rewarded with a wonderful time of growth and fellowship.  To be a church that fulfills God’s great commission, we must become disciples that make disciples, and LifeGroups are a big part of becoming better disciples.  Pray about joining a LifeGroup--you will be glad you did.
