Sermon - John Dotson
One Service One Church
Word From the Pastor
Last Sunday, I overheard a young man tell Pastor Jim that he was searching for a New Testament Church. A New Testament Church? I’m not sure what he means by that. I read in Acts 2 at the birth of the church that these new believers were dedicated to the Apostles teachings, prayer, fellowship. They also were caring for one another to the point of selling their own possession to help someone in need. They witnessed the power of God miraculously in their midst. And God was adding to their number daily. But then I read through the rest of the New Testament and I see congregations struggling with legalism, division, horrific sin in the church, discouragement, arrogance and heresy just to name a few issues in the church. So for all the thrill we read in the infant church, there soon came a lot of stuff that the church needed to flesh out. Thus the Apostles writings instructing the church on doctrine and practices. But as I consider this young man’s quest I ask myself do I understand what church is? This morning that is the question I would like to answer. What is church? As we move to one service beginning next week, it’s not about numbers as much as it is about us understanding and becoming the church God prescribes us to be.

Our mission is to glorify Jesus!
The Mission Committee of Lake Bible Church has met and determined that the current cornavirus situation in Oregon has, once again, foiled our ability to carry out our precious congregational Christmas outreach: The Journey to Bethlehem.
One of the great, great strong points of “The Journey” was that it involved our entire body! Everyone in our congregation was needed and, in particular, we all needed to be the agent for bringing people to Jesus in this Fabulous drama! We did this consistency for sixteen wonderful years…through thick and thin! there is truly no reasonable substiutefor the Journey…except:
We still have each other; we still can put up a battle against the lethargy inspired by the Corona Virus and do our very best to love one another&heelip;no matter the season of the Year&heelip;to prosper our ability to bring people to Jesus through:
- Angel Tree
- Operation Shoe Box
- Focusing on our people who cannot come to Lake
- Participating in bringing Joy to folk in our own Neighborhoods
let us all go and see what great power this advent of Jesus can mean in this climate of despair and gloom let us glorify Jesus in our Christmas outreach!
