A Few Helpful Kids Cookie Break Fest Details

August 25th, 2016 2 comments

We are thankful to be able to offer our 5th Annual Kids Cookie Break Fest coming up this Saturday.   We hope that all who attend are encouraged, have fun with your family and friends and are inspired to live like Jesus!

All tickets have been taken for the 10:00 am – 2:00 pm session.  There is a duplicate session from 3:00 pm – 7:00 with some tickets still available until 4:00 on Thursday.   Everyone attending must have their pre-reserved tickets. 

You should have reserved one ticket per person attending.  Your tickets indicate the time of the program you reserved your tickets for and also where to park.  If your ticket says JC, then you must park at the Junction Center and if it says Roots then you must park at Roots and walk the short path through the cornfield over to the Junction Center.  Signs will be posted.   Handicap parking needs will be met at the Junction Center.     We are thankful to have been able to open up  tickets to more people this year;  thanks to Root’s providing this added parking option.

Be sure to keep your meal tickets (marked Sand. or Wrap) to hand in at the Chick-fil-A booth for your meal.   We plan to serve meals between 11:30 – 1:00 (10am program)   and  5:00 – 6:30 (3pm program).

Please have the entry forms that are attached to your tickets filled out in advance.  This allows for a quicker entry.  Fill out one form per person.   You will receive an artist schedule and map when you hand in your ticket.

New for this year, there is an ATM on site and it is located just inside the breezeway entrance to the garage.   We do have food and beverage vendors, artist merchandise and the police dunk tank where cash would be handy.   All Chick-fil-A meals must have been pre-reserved.  No Chick-fil-A will be for sale on site.

Northwest EMS will provide first aid service at their vehicle.   We do recommend that you also carry some bandaids, wear sunscreen and that you and your children drink plenty of water.

Thanks to our many volunteers serving to help make this free event possible and also to our Event Sponsors: Turkey Hill Dairy, FunCo, Thrivent Financial and Rockvale Outlets Lancaster.  Thanks also to all of the interactive sponsors.  Please encourage them and thank them for their participation!

If you or someone in your family (age 14+) would like to volunteer, please email stacey@wjtl.com or stop by the Volunteer booth at the fest to find out if/where help is still needed!

We look forward to a great day!

Q and A-What does the Bible say about zeal?

August 24th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What does the Bible have to say about zeal?”

There are several positive statements and cautious statements about zeal in the Bible.

Romans 12:11 says, “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.” This kind of enthusiasm can be a contagious quality when directed by love for the Lord.

But there is danger in misplaced zeal. Before knowing Christ, the Apostle Paul said that in his zeal, he persecuted the church. So, he knows what he is talking about when he says in Galatians 4:18, “It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good.”

And it is good to understand what the zeal of God accomplishes. Isaiah 9:7 talks about the coming kingdom that Jesus establishes with peace, justice, and righteousness. It is the zeal of the LORD Almighty that accomplishes this.

So, in misplaced zeal, we see the danger of fanaticism if it is not based on knowledge or directed to a good purpose. But we also see that zeal is a spark that God can use in us to accomplish His purposes in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-Providence Of God

August 24th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the providence of God.

Providence refers to the guiding hand of God moving in the events of our lives with His wisdom and love.

An example of God’s providence in the Bible was the encounter of Cornelius and Peter for a redemptive purpose. Both Cornelius and Peter were experiencing a vision from God close together for the purpose of bringing them together. Each person had something to learn from the other.

From Peter, Cornelius and his relatives heard the good news of Jesus and received the Holy Spirit.

From Cornelius, Peter learned that God’s grace was available not just for the Jews, but also the Gentiles. He said in Acts 10:34, “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.”

The Providence of God orchestrates the circumstances of our lives with Divine appointments, and is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Hi!

It’s back to school time, and I have a great theme in store for you that fits this season: Adjectives!  It’s perfect for the Praise & Worship Show because the songs are super descriptive in relation to who God is, what He’s done and how much we need Him. Be sure to sing along (loudly, exuberantly, and whole-heartedly).

Reason To Believe-Peace From Thoughts Fixed On Jesus

August 18th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the peace that flows out of thoughts focused on Jesus.

In Philippians 4:8, the Apostle Paul gave this word of instruction:

“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.”

Jesus fits the description of all these qualities-He is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy. This verse is a call to setting our minds on things above, not on earthly things.

What we think about can have a huge impact on our personal ambitions and affections. Jesus tells us in the Greatest Commandment of all to love the LORD God with all of our being, which includes our mind. According to Philippians 4:9, as we focus our thoughts on the virtuous qualities of God’s kingdom and put them into practice, the peace of God will be with us. We can rest in the grace of God, knowing that our lives are built on a firm foundation.

The peace that flows out of thoughts focused on Jesus is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-The Contribution of Christian Influence

August 16th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the contribution of Christian influence in the world.

Tim Keller has said that “the Christian worldview has made foundational contributions to our own culture that may not be readily apparent.”

As we look at history, we see how compassion prompted followers of Jesus to start orphanages, hospitals, and rescue missions.

Many colleges in our nation (including Ivy League schools) began with a Christian foundation.

Through the influence of Christ’s followers, slavery was abolished in some nations.

And missionaries have traveled to other nations to spread the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Many of these influences in society are still vibrant today, focusing on healing, serving, educating, and building communities for the glory of God. These are some of the ways that Christians have followed the words of Jesus to serve as salt in the earth and light in the world.

The contribution of Christian influence to our communities is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
