This weekend I plan to bring the message, “The Power Of Prayer” from Acts 4:23-37. Please read through the attached “Digging Deeper” Bible study notes before Sunday to get the most out of the message.
SCC Missionary Chelsea Anderson
Missionary Chelsea Anderson will be with us at church this weekend, Chelsea is serving in Athens, Greece. Chelsea has been given all of Joe Walker’s 9:30am Sunday School class and will also be sharing briefly at the end of the morning service. The blue box for love offerings will be made available in the back of the Sanctuary for those who would like to contribute to Chelsea and her ministry.
Foundations – A Study In Systematic Theology
I hope you can join us at 10:00am Fridays in the Passover Room for “Foundations – A Study In Systematic Theology.” This week our topic will be “The Second Coming Of Christ.”
Pray Oregon Coast
Our next “Pray Oregon Coast” community worship and prayer time is scheduled for 6:00pm Friday, January 20th (tomorrow) at “The Refuge Church.” The Refuge is located in downtown Coos Bay right next to the Dairy Queen. I hope you can join us there!
Pocket Blankets For the Homeless
For some time, Stephanie Wynn has had a ministry making pocket blankets for the homeless. She always includes a Bible in the pocket of each blanket. Stefanie is pretty much a shut-in at this point and needs your help in providing the materials to make these blankets. If you are interested in helping Stephanie, please call her at 541-756-2187.
Note: Perhaps this could be taken on as a Life Group or Home Bible Study project.
An Evening Of Worship
Our next evening of worship at Shoreline Community Church is scheduled for 6:00pm Sunday, January 29th. The last time we did this it was a tremendous blessing to everyone who attended. Each of our worship teams will be doing a few songs just like the last time. For more information, please call SCC Music Director Stef Ahlers at 541-297-2899.
Annual Church Business Meeting
Our Annual Church Business Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 5th just 15 minutes after the morning service ends. We will be asking church members to affirm the following elders and deacons for 2023:
- Elders: Harry Abel, Jim Brown, Kip Johnson, Bob Pedigo, and Tom Trammel
- Deacons: Phil Bogs, Bryan Davidson, Frank DeSpain, Roger Dunithan, Les Kaye, Pat Myers, Bill Steevens, Max Thompson, and Desmond Hangana.
We will also be asking the church membership to approve our 2023 Church Budget which will be for the amount of $360,000.00. After 16 years the elders have also completed revisions on our Church Constitution and Statement of Faith. The purpose of revising the Statement of Faith is fourfold: 1) Clarifying issues that aren’t written clearly and that we have been challenged on in the past; 2) Making the document rock solid doctrinally; 3) Making the Statement of Faith easy to read and understandable for the lay person; and 4) Making a document that is almost worshipful in reading. The meeting will have a Q & A time before voting.
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday. Have a blessed week in the Lord as you walk closely with Him!
In Christian Love,
Michael J. Barnard
