Labor DayDear Members and Friends;

The Parable of Swimming or Wading

“What are you doing hitting your sister?” said the mother.

“She slapped me first,” said Dick.

“Well, he splashed water on me by diving into the pool right where I am sitting. I just want to dangle my feet in the water.”

“Sally,” said the mother, “don’t be offended so easily. Either get your swimsuit on and get in the water or get away from the pool.”

Some people feel about the church and the Christian life like Sally felt about the water.  They just want to dangle their feet.

Anyone who is in the water swimming, takes little notice of others swimming, takes little notice of the waves that are caused by dangling feet, because they are busy in the happiness of swimming.  But those who are only wading, are not only splashed by the swimmer, they are also annoyed by waves created by other danglers.

It is so in the Christian River of Life.  People are busily engaged in the work, using their full strength to swim, are undisturbed by little things.  Their whole life is being uplifted by the water and the efforts they are making in it.

People who merely wade in the stream, never really know the power of the flowing River of Life, but rather sit in judgment and annoyance by the dabbling that is done by half-hearted Christians.

If you want to learn to swim as Christians, get into the water and give your whole self to Christ’s cause.  Are you swimming or wading?

In Christ,

ChurchDear Members and Friends;

Matthew 7:24-27 says; “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.  Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.  The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell – and great was its fall.”

A Life Worthy of Reward:

The head of my seminary once made the comment that building anything worthwhile requires a firm foundation: a chicken coop may not need much of a base, but a skyscraper must be constructed upon tons of buried steel and concrete. Jesus Christ is the strongest and steadiest foundation upon which a life can be built. 

Think Of Your Life As A Skyscraper. In Order To Be A Wise Builder …

Apply the Word of God. Believers build a lasting spiritual structure through study and application of Scripture. The Lord’s principles and commandments are the blueprint for a victorious Christian life.

Give sacrificially, forgive willingly and love extravagantly. (Acts 2:45; Eph. 4:32; 1 Peter 1:22)  Pride and selfishness have no place in this edifice.  Using these things a construction materials results in a teetering shack that is susceptible to fire.  (1 Cor. 3:13)

Use your gifts to glorify the Lord.  The Holy Spirit has equipped every believer to serve the Lord.  We cannot afford to be lazy or fearful because we have only a few years to work for Him on this earth.

Share the Gospel.  Telling others about Jesus Christ is the greatest service that we can offer to God and to our fellow man.  The Lord Himself has called us to this task.  (Matt. 28:19)

May we always be faithful to the Lord, each other and the church.

Faithfully Yours,

4thDear Members and Friends;

As summer continues, we need to be constantly aware of our faithfulness to God and each other.  It’s easy to lose sight of what each of us needs to do for each other and our church because the church is always there and the people are always around. 

A few years ago there was an article by Philip Yancey in Christianity Today that I think can help to remind us about how easy it is to take things for granted.  He said:

“I remember my first visit to Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.  Rings of Japanese and German tourists surrounded the geyser, their video cameras trained like weapons on the famous hole in the ground.  A large, digital clock stood beside the spot, predicting 24 minutes until the next eruption. 

My wife and I passed the countdown in the dining room of Old Faithful Inn overlooking the geyser.  When the digital clock reached one minute, we, along with every other diner; left our seats and rushed to the windows to see the big, wet event.

I noticed that immediately, as if on signal, a crew of busboys and waiters descended on the table to refill water glasses and clear away dirty dishes.  When the geyser went off, we tourists oohed and aahed and clicked our cameras; a few spontaneously applauded.  But, glancing back over my shoulder, I saw that not a single waiter or busboy – not even those who had finished their chores – looked out the huge windows.  Old Faithful, grown entirely too familiar, had lost its power to impress them. 

Few things are more quickly taken for granted than God’s faithfulness.  But few things are more important.  God’s faithfulness deserves our untiring praise and wonder.”

Interestingly enough, while the workers paid little attention to the awesomeness of old Faithful, Old Faithful has changed over the years.  Seismic activity has affected the eco-balance in the park’s subterranean water levels.  These disruptions have made the earlier mathematical relationship inaccurate, but have in fact made Old Faithful more predictable.  With a margin of error of 10 minutes, Old Faithful will erupt 65 minutes after an eruption lasting less than 2.5 minutes or 91 minutes after an eruption lasting more than 2.5 minutes. 

How often do we fail to pay attention to those things near and dear to us and they change seemly without notice?  May we always be faithful to the Lord, each other and the church.

Faithfully Yours,


May 2016


CrossDear Members and Friends;

As spring comes to a close, a number of things occur.  Schools will be out soon, people will be planning their vacations and every-one anticipates some leisurely time with family and friends.  Here at the church, we are preparing for our summer schedule.  There will be the Fire Works Booth, special Youth Group trips and the Men’s Group and Youth will again go to the NAOMI House.  We also look forward to Vacation Bible School in August. 

Mother’s Day is always a special day for most folk because without mothers we wouldn’t be here.  For me, I look back on the sacrifices my mother made to make sure that my brother and I got an education as well as instilling in us the values that have served us well over the years.  She once told me that the strength of one’s character is the only thing that lasts. 

To ensure that the character that we developed would endure, she made sure that we were involved in church at every opportunity.  I remember she read the Bible to us every day after supper.  At the time, it felt like she was just interrupting our play time with our friends but I now realize she was laying the foundation that will build lasting character following the examples in Scripture. 

I look forward to this summer and the events that we will participate in here at Community Church. 

May this summer be a blessing to all of you.

In Christ, Merrill
