  • 3. Tidbits from Tommy As we move through The Story this year, I want to remind all of us that the book, The Story, is NOT the Bible. The book, The Story, is a compilation of Scriptures from the New International Version. As I preach through The Story, I will be using the Bible. Please continue bringing your Bibles to church. I love the sounds of the pages turning in your Bibles when we turn to certain texts of Scripture ~ it is such beautiful music to my ears. The Story takes the message of the Bible and puts it in story form. But we must remember that the this book is not the Bible. However, I encourage us to read this book; it really helps us to better comprehend the story of the Bible. Speaking of More to The Story, someone asked me a question as to the beginning of the various languages and nations. The answer to this question is found in Genesis 11. After the flood, the whole earth used the same language and the same words. The people migrated to a place called, Shinar. They wanted to keep from being scattered all over the earth; so, they decided to build a tower that would reach to heaven. However, this desire, to keep from being scattered all over the earth, was in direct opposition to the will of God. After the flood, God commanded Noah and his sons to multiply and fill the earth ~ Genesis 9:1. When the Lord came down to look at the tower, He decided to confuse their language so that they may not understand each other. When the Lord did that, the people spread over the face of the whole earth. Incidentally, the name of the tower is Babel because the Lord confused their language. Now we know the rest of that particular story. We learn so many things from the Bible, and we learn something new every time we read it. Even though we are reading through The Story, I want to encourage us to read through our Bibles. I know that I have not talked about the subject of parking in our parking lot on Sunday mornings for a long time. However, this past Sunday during the Sunday school hour I noticed that the one particular car circled the building at least three times. Please help us to alleviate the crowded parking lot at church by parking off campus at the corner of Montavesta and Dove Run. We have a great shuttle that provides transportation from that parking lot to the front door of the church and then back following the services. Six weeks until Spring ~Tommy tommy@tatescreek.org Lexington, KY 40502 www.tatescreek.org 3
  • 4. Discipleship Ministry News Nic Skinner “How to Lead a Great Bible Study” We continue in our series of articles from Discipleship Journal on leading an effective Bible study. This month’s article is the conclusion of last month’s and focuses on the use of illustrations and group dynamics. Next month, we’ll focus on setting goals for your Bible study group. Enjoy! “Before You Lead” by Becky Brodin (Continued) Illustrations Small-group settings allow for a variety of teaching approaches. I use illustrations to clarify and communicate ideas. Jesus used illustrations freely. Watching events around Him supplied Him with an abundance of material for teaching life principles to His followers. Mark 12:41-44 records Jesus stationing Himself to watch people contribute to the treasury. When the poor widow dropped her two copper coins into the slot, her example became an on-the-spot illustration for the disciples to learn the spirit behind giving. I strive to be observant in everyday situations and apply those situations to our study. Group Dynamics I use group dynamics so that the whole group will participate. I define a group dynamic as any activity that personally involves all the group members. I’m convinced that the use of group dynamics increases understanding, retention, involvement, and enjoyment in the Bible study. A question/answer discussion is a highly structured group dynamic. Other dynamics include role plays, debates, and skits. Copied from DISCIPLESHIP JOURNALS BEST SMALL GROUP IDEAS – VOLUME ONE.  Used by permission of NavPress – www.navpress.com.  All rights reserved.

  • 5. Senior Adults Kim Beckwith There was an article a few years ago in which a man gave his idea of a perfect world. He said, “In a perfect world you would feel as good at 60 as you did at 17. And you would be as smart at 60 as you thought you were at 17.” “In a perfect world professional basketball and baseball and football players would be complaining because schoolteachers were signing multi-million dollar contracts. In a perfect world potato chips would have calories, but if eaten with dip, the calories would be neutralized.” “In a perfect world, mail would always be early, and the check in the mail would always be for more than you expected it to be.” The truth is: This is not a perfect world and it never will be! But it can become a lot better in this New Year for all of us. One thing that would help us all would be to look more often at the blessings we have rather than the burdens that confront us. I remember walking into the pediatric cancer ward in a hospital when my nephew was so ill with cancer. I had the overwhelming sense of blessing, seeing all those ill children while knowing I had healthy ones at home. My mother always said (I know I sound like Forrest Gump here) to look at your blessings because there is always someone less fortunate. My resolution has been to look at my blessings more in this coming year, and my burdens less. Then, this imperfect world will become much closer to perfect than I otherwise would think. I hope we all can do this. Seniors, remember the morning Bible study meets each week on Wednesday mornings. We’re having a great study over the book of Ephesians. We would love to have you join us. ~Bro. Kim kimbeckwith@tatescreek.org Lexington, KY 40502 www.tatescreek.org 5
  • 6. Don’s Dynamics Do you love a good story? Are you a good storyteller? Some of my favorite speakers can draw me in with a good story. Many times, I have attended a convention where in the midst of thousands of people, one could “hear a pin drop” as the speaker relates a relevant story to bring home a point. This is especially effective at the conclusion of a message where we are asked to make a change or life-changing decision. With that in mind, I am excited to embark on this wonderful journey over the next several months. After all, where can we find better stories (and they are all true!) than in the Bible. I encourage you to read The Story in advance so that you can drink in all that you can on Sunday mornings and in your small group. As I said in our worship services on January 5, I hope to support the message of each story through our congregational singing and special music whenever possible. As we look ahead to 2014, we will host several concerts and artists. These concerts will provide a variety of opportunities for worship and upon occasion, entertainment. Please refer to our Concert Series Brochure for 2013-2014 for dates and details. I am looking forward to sharing a Concert of Spirituals with you on February 23 at 4:00 PM. This concert will include several vocal solos by H. T. Burleigh, a prolific composer of spirituals and new arrangements by Mark Hayes. I will also include a few solos on piano and organ. I have always enjoyed the messages of spirituals. They often share a Biblical message along with a “hidden” message for the time period in which they were written. Do you have the gift of hospitality? On March 23, we will host the Anderson University Chorale in our morning services. This outstanding choir was featured on KET during the recent Christmas season with an hour-long concert along with other music ensembles from Anderson. We will need hosts for the evening of March 22. This will include overnight housing, an evening meal, and breakfast. If you are available to help in this most important way, please contact me at the church at your earliest convenience. If you want to check out the choir, go to YouTube to find some excellent examples of their music. 6 ~ Don don@tatescreek.org Tates Creek Christian Church 3150 Tates Creek Road
  • 7. Missions Moment Weeks Family We’ve been in our new “home” for about two and a half months now and these past few months have been full of adjustments. Life is different here in Ethiopia. For one, if you saw us walking on our street you would notice us, we stand out. Another significant difference here is how we are perceived. In America, if we introduced ourselves to you as seminary students, dorm parents, or soon-to-be missionaries, you would not have been overwhelmingly impressed with our status or wealth. In fact, you might have thought, “Awww, those poor young kids. I’m going to give Travis $20 to take his sweet wife out to dinner.” (And some of you were just that kind to us.) Here, our country of origin, our skin color, and our social network mark us as wealthy people with opportunity…and it is more true than I once thought. You can see the difference between the poor and wealthy in America, but in the developing world the chasm between the two is so great that it can never escape your awareness. One of the most difficult adjustments for us to make here is realizing and accepting the wealth and opportunity we inherited by simply being born in America. It’s frustrating when our white skin makes us a target for beggars, children, and any opportunist to ask for money. “I’m not made of money,” I fume in my head. And its true, I’m really not. But… I might as well be. I have access to more money than most of our Ethiopian friends can even imagine. Next comes the question that I may never have an answer to: Why? Why are some people born into the world with wealth, influence and opportunity (many of whom don’t even realize it) while others are born in poverty, with many needs and not much opportunity to meet them. It’s no wonder that when they see me walking down their street they see an opportunity to ask for something. My whole life growing up in the church I’ve heard it preached that everything we have is not really ours, it is God’s and we are only His stewards. Living in Ethiopia, Travis and I feel the heavy weight of this responsibility to be good stewards of God’s resources. You, as partners in this work, have also chosen to invest your resources and your lives in what God is doing here. We want to ask you to come alongside us in prayer as we process and work out how to be faithful with our resources to God, to our supporters, and to our neighbors. ~ Emily Weeks Lexington, KY 40502 www.tatescreek.org 7

  • 12. God’s Love Is it natural or have we been trained to think of love in the month of February? It must have something to do with the institution of Valentine’s Day, but somehow most of us have come to think of February as the “month of love”. As we have begun our journey through The Story, we have been reminded of God’s great creation. Not only does this show us His power, but also His love for us. We have also learned of God’s great promise to Abraham and Abraham’s faithful response. We have heard of the challenges of Joseph and Moses and how God used those situations to bring about His will for His people. All of these situations looked hopeless: Abraham and Sarah were childless, Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and falsely accused by his owner’s wife, Moses was forced to flee Egypt as a murderer. Yet each of these circumstances worked together to show us how God takes the events of our lives on earth and incorporates them to accomplish His ultimate purpose - restoring us to a relationship with Him. As we saw God’s provision for each of them, His plan for their lives became clear and we realized that He is trustworthy and is motivated by His great love for us. This month let us focus on God’s continued love, provision, and faithfulness toward us that was revealed in Jesus. The apostle Paul encouraged the Ephesians towards this when he prayed, “I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:17b-19) 12 Tates Creek Christian Church 3150 Tates Creek Road

  • 14. College Ministry Mike Allen Are We Showing Christ’s Love? 14 I recently attended the funeral of a young lady from my past ministry in Mason, Ohio. She was only 19 years old when she went to meet Jesus face to face. She had fought her battle with cancer for 12 years. Diagnosed with ependymoma, a somewhat rare tumorous cancer at the age of 7, Jessica Elam chose to make the absolute best of the time she would have on this earth. She spent a very extensive amount of time in Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in those 12 years as she experienced many treatments through 8 relapses of the cancer. She had a profound influence on the people that she was around. Her faith in God was unshakeable and never questioned. There were dozens of nurses and doctors at her funeral, on top of the 800ish family members and friends to say, “good bye for now”. Her oncologist even spoke at the funeral. It was obvious by his display of emotions that he had become very close with Jessica and her family. And from the words he shared, it was even more obvious the encouragement that Jessica had been to him in his faith journey. Jessica worked tirelessly to show the love of Christ to everyone. She started groups to raise funds for childhood cancer research. She started a program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital that allows patients to have visits from their personal pets. She sought to minister to the people who were going through what she was going through. What have you been through that you can help someone else through? Jessica had plenty of excuses to focus on herself and her family, yet she chose to show Christ’s love in any way possible to anyone possible. When I look at her life, I see nothing but Christ. We are all busy, we all have families, we are all dealing with our own trials and struggles. But lets take the focus off of ourselves and take a look around. There are others that need encouragement. Others that need ministering to. Let’s ask the Lord to help us see who those people are and help us be selfless enough to do something about it. In His Service, ~Mike mike@tatescreek.org Tates Creek Christian Church 3150 Tates Creek Road
  • 15. What is Your Story? Student Ministry Brad Haggard As we are working through The Story as a church, the middle school and high school have looked into how our personal stories are challenged by the stories in the Bible. Maybe this is the most important thing that happens to us as we read scripture. The more we read and open up to God’s Spirit, the more we begin to see things as God intends. In the first week of the series, our high school group looked at the story of Jesus meeting the woman at Jacob’s Well in John 4. The woman’s negative view of herself was completely changed by her encounter with Jesus. The woman who shied away from her village in shame sought out people to tell about the Messiah! But it wasn’t only the woman whose story changed. The people in the village, who before had shut her out of society, now believed her when she told them about Jesus (John 4:39). The disciples even had to change the way they thought about ministry when Jesus explained to them that the fields were ready for the harvest (4:31-38). All of them had their eyes opened to a new way of looking at the world because of what Jesus did on that day. The amazing thing about the stories in the Bible is that they can challenge us on different levels. At one point we may identify with the shamed woman, the judgmental townspeople, or even have our eyes opened to the harvest, like the disciples. For a few students, the story is already changing their view and challenging them to save up to help build a clean water well for a rural village in Africa. God’s story is powerful, and I’m excited to see how the lives and personal stories of our students are changed through reading The Story. Let’s lift Him up together! ~ Brad brad@tatescreek.org Lexington, KY 40502 www.tatescreek.org 15
  • 16. People Who Serve Children Make A Difference Children’s Ministry Matt Lee Aly Thompson Is Making A Difference in children’s lives! Inspired by her mom’s dedication to teaching her and her siblings Aly Thompson started serving, in a variety of ways, in the Elementary Ministry as a high school student. Now she is a consistent small group Sunday School leader for the Kindergarten and 1st grade girls. She also recently joined the ministry team and led the entire worship for one Sunday with other faithful volunteers and college friends. As a college student, Aly has chosen to study early childhood education. She loves kids in general, but the happiness and innocence of children make her want to be a better person. It warms her heart when they tell her she is loved. She knows that serving children benefits both the server and the served. She has learned that each child thinks and acts differently, some kids talk and some don’t. Aly loves building a friendship with the girls she serves through teaching. So what advice does this college student have for the rest of the church body? “Always listen to what they have to say. It makes them feel important and loved and they get a sense of security in you being their leader. The giggles, the smiles, and the sweet comments are all reminders that God loves His children so much. He is working through them, as well as me!” Aly Thompson Thank you, Aly, for allowing God to mold and shape you as you serve His precious children! I am so glad that you are using your time wisely to make a difference in the lives of children! ~ Matt matt@tatescreek.org 16 MOVIE NIGHT February 28, 2014 ~ 6:30-8:30 PM Elementary Kids come in pajamas for pizza, popcorn, and a movie in Uptown! You must sign up in advance! Tates Creek Christian Church 3150 Tates Creek Road
  • 17. Critterland News ~ Lesley lesley@tatescreek.org Lexington, KY 40502 www.tatescreek.org Lesley Tipton I came into Critterland on a recent Sunday with the normal expectations of the day—get lessons and crafts set up, prepare Jesus in the Park, and be ready for boundless energy and mini Houdini-like escape attempts. What I didn’t prepare for is how much I would be affected by the day. By the end of the morning I was exhausted, but I felt so much better, spiritually and mentally. The children didn’t care that they had been inside. The enthusiasm they have for learning God’s stories is so amazing, and to hear them shout out the answers to our questions with such excitement is heartwarming. I love knowing what we are doing is making an impact on their minds, and that they are “getting it.” If you are feeling a bit drained by the weather, I encourage you to stop by Critterland. Sometimes it isn’t just the children who benefit from Sunday mornings. Preschool Ministry Do you get the “winter blues?” Winter is usually my favorite season. I love snow and cold temperatures. I love to be snuggled up with family and big fuzzy blankets. This winter though, I have been in the house a bit more than usual (young infants don’t need to be out in the polar vortex!) It has caused me to be a bit down and tired. 17
