Journey of the Star Followers
As we approach Thanksgiving, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on what I am thankful for:
• I am thankful that God loved me enough to place in me an emptiness that made me seek him out.
• I am thankful for all the people who cared enough about me to point me to the One who could fill that emptiness.
• I am thankful that Jesus came into my life and has been working on transforming me over these last 29 years since I yielded to him.
Just a surface reading of the Gospels will reveal to you that three primary aspects of Jesus’ ministry were Preaching, Teaching, and Healing. He was constantly proclaiming that the Kingdom of God was near; He spent a lot of time teaching about what the kingdom was like and how his listeners should live their faith; Everywhere he went he healed people.
Changes are afoot for the Wednesday Night Supper Club. They are moving their dinners to a new night (in hopes it will allow choir, handbell, and Men’s Bible Study members to participate and to allow us to visit a wider variety of restaurants), and they are taking a new name! They will reserve a table at a different restaurant each week, and anyone who wants to eat out is invited to come sit at "the Presbyterian table."
The Presbyterian Table will join up for dinner on Thursday nights. What doesn’t change is the time (still 6:00 PM), the premise (an informal group open to all with each person being responsible for his or her own expense), and the fun! We invite you to join us any week for good food, fellowship, and lots of laughter.
FaithHealth NC, a program through Wake Forest Baptist Health, is dynamic partnership between faith communities and health care providers. The mission and purpose of Faith/Health is to develop strong links between medical and faith communities in providing ministries of help and healing to individuals. In Lexington that partnership is between our own Lexington Medical Center and various churches. Our congregation, in fact, has covenanted to be a part of the FaithHealth program.
A little over a year ago, several people from our church took a Saturday to drive over to Madison, NC to observe the men of First Methodist Church cooking peanuts. We had tasted their peanuts and were interested in how they cooked them. Following that trip we searched for a cooker we could use to cook peanuts ourselves, but couldn't find one. We now have contracted with the Madison church to sell us peanuts wholesale.
NUTS ON A MISSION is a unique, delicious gift for your neighbor, a relative, or just for yourself! Contact the church office or Emmy Floyd to purchase. Each pint jar costs just $6.00, or pick up two jars for $10. A case of 12 jars costs $60. All proceeds will go toward missions.
“So the churches were strengthened in the faith and increased in numbers daily.” - Acts 16:5
You may have heard the phrase “Acts 16:5” used around church by the elders and deacons and been wondering what it is. Well, it is obviously a reference to a verse in the book of Acts which is quoted above, but it is also an initiative sponsored by Salem Presbytery in which the churches take disciplined and intentional steps toward creating new ministries to reach new people while honoring and strengthening the work of present ministry.
