Dear Church Family,
Every Sabbath I watch all the incalculably valuable children come forward to enjoy the children’s story. I watch as they listen, share and pray. Each child is unique, each a precious treasure in the eyes of Jesus. Is any price too high for their education and preparation for heaven? What investment is too great helping them develop Christ like characters, so that someday they can live joyfully in a world with no sickness, violence or death? Let’s continue to work together as a church family in our church programs and in our school to train this generation as missionaries for Jesus.
If you want a school, a training ground that will work with you to train your children for Christian service, to prepare their feet to walk on streets of Gold, than please join together in support of Lubbock Junior Academy. If it is not yet providing all you would like, then jump in and help provide what is needed. We want this school to get better every year and if we as a church family band together with Christ, then only He knows the limits of what can be done for our children and for our community. Our children are far too valuable to place their education in the hands of the world.
Wednesday, August 6, we will resume our weekly prayer meetings. I invite all of you to come and pray together. If you have something, or someone, in need of God’s touch, then join us on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.
Our Lubbock Pathfinder Club will be attending the Oshkosh International Camporee from August 10 through the 17th.
Registration and Open House for the Lubbock Junior Academy 2014-2015 school year will be Sunday afternoon, August 10 from 4 to 6 p.m. Classes will begin Tuesday morning, August 19 at 8:30a.m.
This Sabbath, August 2, I will share the message, “Train for Your Life”. I am looking forward to sharing this important subject of preparing and training ourselves and our children for Heaven.
The 11:00 a.m. message on Sabbath, August 9, will begin a series of studies on prayer. Until His people earnestly seek Him in prayer there will be no true power. Our first message “Obsessive Intercession” will reveal Christ’s perpetual ministry of intercession. If you would like to read a little about this subject, look in Hebrews 7, focusing on verse 25.
Sabbath, August 16, we will continue our series with “Prayer’s Own Reward”. The privilege we have of communication to our Heavenly Father in prayer is nearly impossible for my mind to comprehend. All that goes with it is wonderful. Philippians 4:6-7 will be the key scriptures we will study together on this topic.
We need be reminded that often the troubles, struggles and temptations of life are our greatest source of inspiration to pray. So on August 23 our Sabbath morning worship message will be entitled “Thorns of Inspiration”. I am looking forward to sharing this topic together. Key texts, II Corinthians 12:7-10, I Peter 1:6-7 and James 1:2-4.
Sabbath, August 30, our study will be titled “Revelation’s Incense”. Revelation chapter 8:1-4 gives us a glimpse into the throne room of heaven and an image of the prayers of the saints just before the final plagues and the second coming. I believe we are in that time and this glimpse is for us. I invite you to join me as we study this beautiful message.
Please pray for me as I pray for you!
God’s richest blessings,
Pastor Jeremy McCombs
