First Christian Church of Abingdon January the "Voice" Newsletter 2016

  1. 1. Firs t Chris tian Church of A bingdon The Voice WHAT WE BELIEVE 1. We believe the Bible to be the one and only inspired Word of God. 2. We believe all men and women are sinners and need to repent and change their lifestyle for salvation. 3. We believe in baptism by immersion as a part of the plan of salvation. 4. We practice the celebration of the Lord’s Supper each Sunday. 5. We believe we have the responsibility to share the message of Jesus Christ in our Community and throughout the world. Making a place for YOU!
  2. 2. TOM’S TWO MINUTE TIME OUT IT’S ANOTHER NEW YEAR! HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT COULD ALREADY BE THE YEAR 2016. SOUNDS SO FUTURISTIC, DOESN’T IT? AT LEAST TO US ONES GETTING OLDER. I HEARD A GREAT WISE STATEMENT BACK IN THE 70’S WHEN I WORKED AS A MAINTENANCE MAN AT APPALACHIAN CHRISTIAN VILLAGE. I WAS A 20 SOMETHING AND AN “OLD” MAN IN HIS SIXTIES ONCE SAID TO ME, “CHRISTMAS COMES FASTER NOW THAN FRIDAYS USED TO WHEN I WAS A KID.” HOW TRUE. AS WE ENTER A NEW YEAR I ASK MYSELF, “WHAT DO WE AS CHRISTIANS NEED RIGHT NOW?” OF COURSE WE NEED MANY THINGS. WE NEED FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE. WE NEED TO BELONG. WE HAVE PHYSICAL NEEDS. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING WE REALLY NEED RIGHT NOW AS WE FACE A YEAR RIPE WITH UNCERTAINTIES LIKE TERRORISM, VIOLENCE AND ALL MANNER OF THINGS THAT THREATEN US. THAT THING WE NEED IS COURAGE. WE NEED TO STAND IN THE FACE OF EVIL RUNNING RAMPANT IN OUR WORLD. WE ARE THE LIGHT, JESUS TAUGHT, AND WE NEED TO HAVE COURAGE TO LET IT SHINE. THIS MONTH WE WILL LOOK AT SEVERAL CHARACTERS IN THE BIBLE WHO DISPLAYED EXTREME COURAGE WHEN THEIR WORLD NEEDED THEM TO. AND AS WE EXAMINE THEIR LIVES, MY PRAYER IS THAT WE WILL FOLLOW THEIR EXAMPLE AND BE COURAGEOUS IN OUR WORLD. IT NEEDS US TO BE. SO, FEAR NOT! GOD IS WITH US! MAY WE ALL AT FIRST CHRISTIAN HAVE A HAPPY….AND COURAGEOUS NEW YEAR! GOD BLESS EACH ONE. I LOVE YOU ALL!

Come join us! Gifts After all the hustle and bustle of Christmas we can forget quickly that giving is a cornerstone of our Faith. During the holidays we all become so generous and giving with our attitudes, but why should we stop. The gift from God (Jesus) remains with us all year long, so I challenge everyone to embrace that mentality ourselves. Try and turn the seasonal greetings and cheerfulness into a full time approach with other. We are blessed beyond measures that God doesn’t just love us in certain times of the year. So why don’t we show the world how much love and generosity people still possess. It starts with one person and can snowball into something big, so let our FCC family here be the start of something big and create spiritual gift giving year round. Great Job to all the youth, for providing Christmas for a family in need. You’ve made their Holiday much brighter. I’m so proud of each of you. Hunter
