Moving from Mouthpiece to Hands of Jesus

Let me say thank you for standing up for your faith and values within the community by letting your voice be heard.  One of the ways you did that was in your vocal opposition to the proposed beer tent at the Union County Fair Grounds.  When God’s people speak up others listen, but there is a way to get people to listen to your message even more.  It happens when you go from being the mouthpiece of Jesus to being the hands of Jesus.  As the old saying goes, “Actions speak much louder than words,” and in this case it is no different.
We have an opportunity to do just that.  We have been asked by a Christian member of the Fair Board to volunteer to collect money at the fair gates on Saturday the 27th.  This can be done in shifts of 2-3 hours at a time.  The more volunteers the less each has to work.  The more volunteers, the louder the message of Jesus is heard.
Honestly, if we do not step up and be the hands and feet of Jesus then we forfeit our right to be heard as the mouthpiece of Jesus.  So, please let me know if you can volunteer on Saturday.  Call the church office or my cell # 618-697-8494

5 Things You Can Do For VBS

Vacation Bible School was always fun as a kid.  Sometimes you as an adult, however, it has been announced causing feelings of guilt or remorse.  These usually come to those who want to help but are not sure just what to do.  There are all kinds of things to do for VBS, but let me share these five with you if you are not volunteering but wish you could.


Vacation Bible School

It’s that time of year again!!!  School has been out for a few weeks now and the kids are looking for some exciting adventures.  so, join us for vacation bible school as we dive deep and become submerged in God’s Word.


Revived and Alive

As a kid growing up in a Southern Baptist Church, when I heard our church was “going to have revival,” I thought how great that was because that meant good dinners at church and nights of staying up late.  Sadly for many of the adult Christians in my childhood church, revival meant the same thing to them.  Even more sad, is for many the idea of revival has not changed.
I want to ask you to consider your understanding of revival, and what would it mean for you and JFBC (or whatever church you attend) to “have revival?”  Read what Dr. Martin Loyd Jones says revival is for a church and Christian.
