The Weekly Update

(July 18, 2018)

The weatherman says it’s going to be hot this weekend but we, at MORE, are calling for a cold front. That’s right. Polar Blast, or Vacation Bible School as some may call it, will make a landing at MORE. Your children, K-5th grade, can come from 6-8:30 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. For more information or to sign up, go to our website at www.ilovemore.org.

At 5 p.m. on Saturday, we will have a memorial service for Drew Seager, son of Angie Duncan, who passed away recently.

We probably could use some volunteers to help change the church around from VBS to get ready for the memorial service and for Sunday services. If you can spare an hour or two, please contact Jennifer Martin.

Next Wednesday, July 25, our Wednesday services will return, including youth and children’s activities. Times are 6:30-8:00 p.m. and the children/youth will eat supper here. To finish out the summer, we will have six Wednesday services of different kinds. Each is pretty cool in its own right:

  • July 25 – Break Through, led by Chad and Joy Conner. We will have drum worship.
  • August 1 – Crump Church, led by Bob Crump. This service is designed to let you experience church as we do it on Monday nights.
  • August 8 – Back to School. This is a night of praise with our worship team. We also will have prayer led by Crystal Chambers, Linsey Beggs, Candy Patterson, Tanya Garner and Debbie Thomas.
  • August 15 – Prophecy service, led by Lyndal Waldrip.
  • August 22 – Faith of a Miracle, led by Kathryn Roach. This will include testimonies by Kathryn, Candy Patterson, Chantell Hicks and Rachael Rogers.
  • August 29 – Power Impartation, led by Jennifer Martin.

For those hurting parents with an adult child struggling with substance abuse issues, Sharing Hope Ministry will host a class from 5:30-7:30 p.m., July 23 at their Center for Advancement, 2308 SW 7th Ave. For more information, contact Stevi Larson at 358-78003 or go to the Sharing Hope website.

  • Luke 1:37 – For the word of God will never fail. (NLT)
  • Romans 12:17-19 – Never pay back evil with evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. (NLT)

A boy was watching his father, a pastor, write a sermon. “How do you know what to say?” asked the little boy.

“Well, God tells me,” his father answered.

“Oh. Then why do you keep crossing things out?”

A Sunday school teacher was teaching her class about the difference between right and wrong. “All right, children, let’s take another example,” she said. “If I were to get into a man’s pocket and take his billfold with all his money, what would I be?”

Little Harold, the pastor’s son, raised his hand and, with a confident smile, he blurted out, “You’d be his wife!”
