Weekly news from WCUMC Feb. 2 2014

  1. 1. Weekly News from WCUMC-2/2/2014 God's Righteous People ... By Faith GALATIANS 3:6-9 Understand that in the same way that Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness, those who believe are the children of Abraham. But when it saw ahead of time that God would make the Gentiles righteous on the basis of faith, scripture preached the gospel in advance to Abraham: All the Gentiles will be blessed in you. Therefore, those who believe are blessed together with Abraham who believed. GALATIANS 3:23-29 Before faith came, we were guarded under the Law, locked up until faith that was coming would be revealed, so that the Law became our custodian until Christ so that we might be made righteous by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a custodian. You are all God’s children through faith in Christ Jesus. All of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek; there is neither slave nor free; nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Now if you belong to Christ, then indeed you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according
  2. 2. to the promise. Faith brings Righteousness. All who believe in Christ become children of God. Believers are all ONE in Christ Jesus. Believers in Christ are Abraham's Seed (Heirs of the Promise) Questions for Personal or Group Reflection 1. What is the significance of Paul's question to the Galatians in verse 2? 2. What does the story of Abraham teach us about faith and righteousness? 3. Who are the true children of Abraham? Who can be one? 4. What is the promise that God game Abraham in Genesis 12:2-3? 5. Who is the seed through whom the promise to Abraham is fulfilled? 6. Since the Law did not replace the promise, what was its purpose? 7. What kinds of legalism do Christians sometimes fall into? 8. How does your faith free you from that bondage?

We'll supply basic lessons for snow shoeing, but all you really need to know is to pick up your feet over the soft snow when you walk. Open to people of all ages, a great activity and exercise for your whole family. If you are interested in a fun outdoor adventure, please call Bob or Sandy Clemence at 425-486-0762.

  5. 5. No matter how old are children are, as parents we care for them and desire to see God's will accomplished in their lives. Join other parents as we lift up our grown children to the Lord in a special prayer service on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 7:00 PM in the Sanctuary. We will worship the Lord in song, read scriptures and hear testimonies. Rev. Larry and Audrey Eddings of Wind of the Spirit Ministries will lead us in a focused time of prayer and forgiveness. We will also gather in small groups to share and pray for one another. Com and pray with the power of God's Word over our adult children. We can rest in the providence of God as we turn our children over to His care. Questions? Contact Pastor Rick or Evelyn Carlson. If you have a specific issue that you would like to see addressed in the Prayer for Adult Children, please pass it along to the church. You do not need to include your name.

  7. 7. WCUMC Trustees have begun a Capital Improvement project to reduce our energy footprint and expenses by replacing all outdoor and indoor overhead lights (except Sanctuary) with LED lights, and replacing all T12 florescent bulbs with T-8 florescent bulbs. T-8 bulbs will last 10 years, will not flicker and buzz, and will reduce energy cost by 25% 50%. Additionally, PSE has announced a Rebate Program to encourage retrofit. WCUMC estimated rebate will be $9,000, and retrofit should generate savings of approximately $4,500 per year. A Designated Fund to raise the $26,500 needed for the full project has been established. If you want to make a donation to this fund, please write your checks to WCUMC with Lighting Project on the memo line. More details will be shared during the Sunday morning worship service, and a special display will be set up in the Narthex. Financial Snapshot
