How Creative Are You? Really?

Greetings from sunny Ritzville.  I hope the weather on the inside of you is as beautiful as the outside weather we are having!

I heard a person say recently that the two key transforming events that change you the most will be: 1. What you read; and 2. Who you meet. Have you found this to be true in your life experience?

I bring to your attention a person and column that I find amazing.  His name is Seth Godin. I first met him via a simulcast at the 2011 Global Leadership Summit, transmitted by Willow Creek Church, and viewed at Life Center Church in Spokane. I know nothing about his personal faith preference, yet I find him a person we all can learn from.  He is the author of twelve bestselling books, a popular blogger and a successful entrepreneur. His books have been translated more than 35 languages.

Other than Jesus Christ, I find him to be one of the most creative people I’ve ever come into contact with.

Creativity is what we all long for regardless of what kind of ministry or work the Lord has called you to. For Jesus sake be creative!

If you want to truly be creative I encourage you to: 1.) Maintain your spiritual disciplines: daily digesting God’s Holy Word; 2.) Maintain a daily prayer one on one with The Holy Spirit; 3,) Be regular in your worship attendance and small group participation and 4.) Subscribe to Seth Godin’s daily blog by going to the web:  If you maintain these disciplines and are open to the Holy Spirit’s leading then bingo-lookout-wonderful new insights will come to you.

Stay tuned-The Holy Spirit is working on us all–Blessings!   John


May God Form You Like He Formed the Bible-Weekend Sept 28-30

Wow isn’t the weather awesome for this late in September?  God is GOOD…all the TIME.  All the TIME GOD is GOOD!

This Sunday we continue with a special series on how we understand Holy Scripture. The theme Sunday is: “May God Form You Like He Formed the Bible”! The Bible is God’s personal word to each of us! O how special the Holy Bible is!  O how special you are with God’s living word within you!

Special thanks to the Trustees for the installation of our New Church Sign. We will dedicate it to the Lord this Sunday. Following worship we will offer barbecued turkey burgers for all those interested. Bring a salad to share with others!

Ministry Activities Sept 7-9-Church Photo Taken!

Greetings and blessings to you in Jesus’ Name.  This Sunday morning we begin with Adult Sunday School at 9am, followed by an all church picture to be taken by Steve McFadden at 10am. We are back on our fall worship time of 10:30 am.

Out of my visits in the community this last week The Holy Spirit has led me to scripturally address: Spiritual Terror! How will you react when Spiritual Terror comes you way? This will be the question we scripturally address this Sunday. Unfortunately we hear or read in the news alot about political terrorism.  Yet most terror is not political but spiritual. Why?  Because all of life is spiritual in nature. Because we each are created with a Spirit we are vulnerable to life’s fears and troubles ganging up on us!  Text to go over for this Sunday is Psalm 91-called the Protection Psalm.

Following worship, all are welcome to take part in a barbecue featuring sausage sandwiches and sweet corn. Bring a salad to share with others .

See ya Sunday-Your Servants for Christ Our Savior-Pastor John and Maureen
