2013 Vacation Bible Schools

Written by Staff

 

Beth left the retreat determined to follow through with the commitment she made to go to bed earlier and get up early enough to have a daily quiet time. She also pledged to stop eating junk food and manage her time better.

When she got home, her laptop beckoned. She’d been away from it all weekend and really needed to check her emails. Three hours later, Beth had skimmed emails, tweeted about her weekend, posted retreat pictures on Facebook, and consumed a whole bag of cheese puffs.

Health care has become a much debated issue in our country, especially over the past five years. And while there are many different voices and programs offering their best efforts to help curb this growing issue, Medical Outreach Ministries in Montgomery is working to help those affected by the poverty that keeps them from getting the medical assistance they need right here in the River Region.

 

Jesus told his disciples, “The poor will always be among you” (Matthew 26:11). This same sentiment was also expressed in the Old Testament in Deuteronomy when the Lord spoke through Moses, “There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brother and sister and toward the poor and the needy in your land” (Deuteronomy 15:11).

Freedom Through Forgiveness

Written by Carmen Falcione

 

Jesus states in Luke 4:18 that the Spirit of the Lord was upon Him to proclaim liberty (freedom) to the captive and set the distressed, downcast, and downtrodden free.  This verse states Jesus’ work on the cross (His obedience in taking on our sins and the wrath of God); His resurrection procured for us healing and deliverance spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally.  The unbelievers are unaware of this, but sadly some of God’s children are either ignorant or negligent in embracing the totality of the work that Jesus purchased for us.

If you’re a single parent, you likely did not plan on becoming one. Even though your life looks different than you imagined, you can make the most of it—and of your kids’ lives, as well. You can be a successful single parent.

 

 

In 1984, inside a trailer behind Frazer United Methodist Church, Faith Radio signed on the air.

 

It had been nearly four years since a group of people realized a need to bring Christian radio broadcasting to Montgomery. After much prayer and persevering through numerous obstacles, the Federal Communications Commission finally granted their approval for a non-commercial radio license.

 

For several years, as I walked in my neighborhood, I saw a man who ran the same route I walked. Eventually, his pace slowed to a stumbling walk. Later, his steps were so labored I wondered if I should offer to get my car and drive him back to his house.

From Melissa McKinney McInnis…

Written by Melissa McKinney McInnis

Clay and I have been married three happy months. With each day we grow more thankful for each other and God's big picture plan for our lives. We were blessed with a fairly seamless transition into married life and I truly believe it was the result of a constant awareness of God's role in our union.

 

Your close friend tells you that her husband has left her and her three small children.  “Please pray,” she weeps into the phone.  What do you ask for?

 

A Christian college newsletter reports a fatal car accident involving four young people on an outreach trip for the college.  “Pray for the families,” the newsletter implores.  For what, you wonder?

Looking back over this past year of weddings, it has been fun to see the trends we read about and planned for really take shape as they were executed for many brides. It is always a challenge to make each wedding unique when many brides have similar tastes, but it certainly is a goal of mine. Looking forward to 2013 gets me excited after previewing some of the ideas that are trending and influencing weddings for this next year. Here are a few of the ideas that will inspire weddings and brides.

Before You Say “I Do” A Premarital Checklist

Written by Lou Priolo

Dr. Anthony Florio likens certain premarital danger signs to traffic lights.

 

Like red blinking danger signs mean STOP, then proceed with caution (if at all)...

Negative traits may be hidden from you, and just the tips show

what is going on beneath a supposedly mature exterior.

 

In my counseling ministry I have given the following checklist to many couples along with the following advice. “If there are more than a couple of these ‘danger signs’ in your relationship, you should probably be concerned. The greater number of these issues you encounter between the two of you, the more you should consider putting your relationship on hold, not necessarily breaking up, but slowing things down (or at least not moving forward) until these issues are resolved.”

The Christmas Advantage

Written by Lettie Kirkpatrick

 

Unique Opportunities to Share Christ this Season

It can be almost “cool” to be a Christian at Christmas.  Even unbelievers assume many of the trappings of our faith.  And they are blissfully unaware that most of their decorations represent truths about Christianity.  It’s a great time to take advantage of opportunities to share Christ and give witness to the events that led to this celebration.  Consider these ideas for helping lost friends and relatives see the Savior in this season.
