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.
