Church Events 5-4

Callisburg Church of Christ

The Callisburg Church of Christ men’s group had a great time with

their annual spring fishing trip last weekend.  About 100 fish were

caught, and large quantities of grilled food was consumed.  It was a

great time of fun, food, fishing and fellowship.  The ladies and

families of the congregation came out to the lake on Saturday night to

join in for a great meal and fun time.  We will be having a Junior

Kids Movie Night this month for our younger kids, the date and time

will be announced shortly.

Our VBS is scheduled for this year. It’s going to be on June 25, 26,

27, each night at 6:30 p.m.  This year’s theme is “All Aboard!”  We

will have a great time learning about Jesus, singing some great songs,

and having some great activities.

 The congregation will also be making a trip to the Ballpark in

Arlington on June 29 to watch a Texas Rangers baseball game.

While we have a lot of activities going on our primary purpose at the

Callisburg Church of Christ is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ,

and worship God. We would love to have you come and join us. Sunday

mornings sermon is entitled “Searching for Louie” and Sunday evening

we will be having our monthly song service.

Please consider coming out and joining us. We have Sunday School for

all ages beginning at 9:30 a.m. Worship service beginning at 10:30

a.m. and again at 6 p.m. Our ladies meet each Thursday morning for a

Bible class at 8:30 a.m. Come visit us soon, we promise you a warm

welcome from a loving group.

Highlights from our Sunday service

Children’s time was given by Norman Minor and he spoke to the children

about “How do you get to Heaven.”

The Scripture reading for this Sunday was from the New Testament, John

10:11-18 and read by Barbara Pollard.

The title of this morning’s sermon was “The Greatest Power of All.”

Pastor John told the congregation that money is a great power.  If a

person has enough money he can do many powerful things.  Political

power is a great thing, and judges have great power.  And when you

combine money and political power, that power is very great.  If we

study history we can learn from mistakes that have been made.  History

tells us that power and money do not endure forever.  Rome was the

most powerful government in its day, but it didn’t last.  Atomic power

is great and can be used for good and bad.  But, what’s the most

powerful thing?  The power from God.  It’s different, it changes us.

Jesus said “I’m the good shepherd and I lay down my life.” Now that’s

power.  God brings us into a proper relationship with Jesus. There’s

no other way we can get right with God except through Jesus.

He had the power and authority to rise from the death and was the only

one who has ever risen from the dead.  He defeated death and because

of this we have great hope because now we know we will go into

eternity with him. God is the source of true life and that’s how we

get power.  God gives us a choice and then loves us into the Kingdom

of God.  That’s power.  We need to open our hearts to that kind of

power.  Start every morning with this prayer:  I’m yours, all that I

have, all that I am. and all that I will ever be is yours.  Help me to

live my life for you.
