To the young at heart

Hey, just a little something for those of you who are young adults looking for a church home.  We have had some of you 20's & early 30 year old adults visiting us recently.  First time guest looking for that place of worship, fellowship and Bible preaching.  Hey and we've had some come back too.  It's too early yet to say how many times they will come back, but our congregation (and the Pastor) are feeling great about this!!  We want you, we need you and I just finished texting one of our new young couples and they are ready to greet you.  If you are 20 years, 30, or 92 (one of our newest memebers) I think you just might need to come again or come the first time.    Hope to see you this Sunday!

Found a church home yet?

I have had to discover a church home for my family only a few times.   As a pastor, there is a different process.  So, when my family started to look for a church home, we had so many to choose from and this took several Sundays to discover which one we felt like we should become a part of. 

You can look for a long time and even re-visit the same churches and you will just keep the process going for some time.  What we discovered in our search (and even in locating a place to be a pastor) we sat down and thought and prayed about our future church family.   We didn't say "what are we looking for; what do we want, what size is it, and other such things.

We asked God to show us a church that needed us.  That we could serve Jesus among a church family.  We wanted to go to a church (and I use  the word "want" as a faith statement) that God would have us to worship HIM with a church family, to study  HIS Word, to share HIS love.  We found the church(s) though we were there only a short period of time.

Have you found the place that needs you--where God needs you?   It gets exciting when you do!

Hope to meet some of you soon.

If you don't ask....

I am sure these next few lines will irritate some and maybe cause some to never set foot in our church building but sometimes information needs to be generated.

I went to a confernce in Virginia years ago for church leaders and a business man said to the group, "people of  wealth and businesses are often asked for contributions for certain projects.  Colleges and Universities do it all the time.  Churches almost never do ask for money except in the church.  And many complain about that saying "all that church talks about is money."

Well we churches operate on "faith" and we say "God will provide."  That's Biblical.  But let me share something and this is often true with small congregations.  Our parking lot needs repaired.

You see, there is a big ball park beside our church.  We also have a small field that the community little leagues use for practice.  The community often uses our parking lot.  Commercial trucks use it to stop and have lunch, make calls, or take a nap.  When there are special events  like 4th of July fireworks, people flock to our lot.  We don't charge.

Lastly, we are in a neighborhood where there are duplexes and a lack of parking.  These people often park their cars on our lot temporarily.  Finally, we are at a corner of a major road and people actually use our lot to cross in order to avoid the stop sign at the corner of an intersection.

So what should my  church ask from the public?  We are hoping to resurface the lot soon with very limited resources.  If you would like to help us with this project, our mailing address is  South Burleson Baptist Church, PO Box 784 Burleson Tx 76097.

If this article offended you, come be our guest, if it motivated you, be our guest.  If it convicted you, be our guest.  Because there is no charge and we offer the message of the Free Gift of Eternal  life to all who will hear and receive.

Supreme Court

God is the SUPREME JUDGE

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--His eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.  For although they know God, they neither glorified him as God...Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one anohter.  Romans 1:18-25 NIV

This is the best commentary on what our nation has accepted, condoned, legalized and expects us to do the same. 

"We, as Christians have done what we could, we yield our nation to You O God for your disposition of judgement and righteousness"

Does Sin Still Exist?

I heard twice last week the term "Acceptable Morality".   I thought about God's standards of course.  WRONG!   It seems that whoever is doing whatever to whomever is the latest in social behavior.  I could list so many illustrations here and even show Bible scripture.  The problem is that with acceptable morality, there is no authority to define what is or is not moral.  Well, this is one church and church pastor who looks to God for moral standards.  If we don't follow that--well it's called SIN!  But, God in mercy and grace allows us to repent of that sin and follow true morality.  Don't you think life is not so chaotic that way--don't you think that's even practical?

Come be our guest this Sunday!
