In the Old Testament it says, "Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!" 1st Chronicles 16:8 Jesus said in the New Testament, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15 There are many jobs to be done for Christ in this world and God does call some to sacrifice more to do a certain job. As a Christian you can wonder what job does God have for you? In the above verses we are all given the job of telling others the Good News about God and the works that He's done in our lives. Don't look at what you could be doing until you are doing what you should be doing. I have discovered when I am doing what I should be doing He leads me to do things that I thought that I could never do. Make it a point today to tell someone that God has been good to you.
This is the last Sunday of November and in the morning service I'll be sharing on, 'What's The Deal?' When we are asked to buy into something new we like to know, what's the deal. Give us the details so we can say yes or no. The trouble is when God asks us to take on something new He expects us to add some of our faith rather than us knowing all the facts. In the pm service I'll be sharing, "Doers Of His Will." There is much to be done in the Kingdom so we must be about our Father's business.
Our Christmas banquet is coming up on Saturday Dec. 6th 6 pm. Tickets are $15.00 and we have limited space so sign up early. Glen Tedford who was with us last year is our speaker for the banquet and he will also be speaking in the following Sunday morning service.
There will be no Bible Study for the month of December. I do want to thank everyone who helps to make our church fit and flow to make a difference in Cape Breton.
Over the Christmas Holidays many of our CBU foreign students have no family here and miss out on sharing a Christmas meal. The last few years there have been around 10 or 12 students and this year we are hoping to have 5 or 6 families from our church to invite 2 students into their home to share with them their Christmas meal. If your family would like to be a part of this very important ministry you can sign up with Pastor Bruce and we will pair you up with 2 students.
Continue to pray for those in need, looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
