Dear CtK brothers and sisters, if you're looking for something to watch this evening while you're practicing your social distancing, the Dukes recommend watching Wendell Kimbrough on YouTube or Facebook live at 7pm. Wendell started a Sunday evening concert series last week and we thoroughly enjoyed it and found it encouraging. We'll be there! Here is the YouTube link:

He Who Believeth In Me

He who believeth in Me, will live for Eternity.
But what does it mean to believe in the Almighty?
Are you a true believer if you attend Church?
Giving ten pieces of silver from your purse?

If I give twenty will my chances be greater than yours?
If I have none to give, will they allow me through their doors?
Am I giving to the true needy, be he enemy or friend?
Or do I think that I am paying off my earthly sins?

Do I give a hundred pieces of gold to help build a large church?
But not throw down one piece of silver to the poor and the hurt?
Jew, Christian, Catholic, Protestant, Methodist, Pentecostal, Evangel,all religions of now, and those of which to come.
Tell me do I allow religion to separate me, but preach that we are all one?

If we believe that God made us all then let not man keep us apart.
For the true meaning of God is not in a Synagogue, Church, or Temple, but only in thy heart.
Be the words spoken in the forest, on a mountain, river, house, fortress or in a prison cell.
For it does not matter where they are spoken, as long as they are spoken well.

Be it from a Rabbi, Priest, Preacher, Monk, or from a mere Child.
Be it spoken to just a few, for it does not have to be a crowd.
If it is spoken in the lowest valley, it will ring out on the highest mountain top.
God's voice will be that of the flood of rivers, not that of morning dew drops.

Thy cup that thy holdeth, is filleth to the brim.
One must not believe partially, but only totally to the Lord within.
One who goes to Church everyday, but still continue to do wrong.
Has wasted time and money that could have been better spent at home.
Do not waste money on building temples with large golden doors.
But gather your tithes together to feed God's hunger and poor.
You will not go to Heaven for being the one who wears the most beautiful dress.
For it is only he who give to God's needy is the one who will be blessed.

FORGIVENESS

If you were dying of thirst and your worst enemy offered you
a drink from his cup.
Would you not accept it or would you reach out to touch the hand that held it up?
Would you rather die first before forgiving
Is your life worth less than your mere feelings?
Even when you know that hatred is not right.
Would you cut off your nose out of spite?
If you were walking across the desert and he offered you a ride.
Would you continue tormenting your feet or would you oblige?
If your child was starving and your enemy offered you bread.
Would you turn away or allow your child to be fed?
Have you ever, did anything wrong and asked the Lord for forgiveness?
If you cannot forgive your brother how can you expect it from thy HOLINESS.

Join us tomorrow at our 9 or 11 a.m. service.
A message from Pastor David Glade:

Labor Day Sunday is one of my favorite Sundays of the year. Every year, a parishioner speaks about their work: What they do, why they do it, why it matters. I love it.

I love hearing from others who believe in what they do, and are good at doing it. I love hearing how God calls different people to different kinds of work. I love hearing about the struggles and the joys encountered at work. And, we all need the reminder that our work matters, something that we are made to do to serve those around us (Gen. 1:28).

One common critique of the Christian faith is that it is just not practical. This is not the case. The Bible has good news about your work. So, maybe this Sunday, you could invite a friend to join us as we explore a topic that is relevant to all: Our work.

Warmly,
David

A note from Pastor David Glade...

A recent conversation in the Glade house on Sunday afternoon.

Child: “Dad, the church is hosting a class called, “Toxic Masculinity or True Masculinity.”

Dad: “Yes, I know.”

Child: “I really think you should go.”

Dad: “I can’t go. I’m leading the class.”

Child (with staged incredulity): “What!?”
This actual conversation is part of a larger, good natured, banter in my home. If I’m overbearing on some minor issue (and this happens occasionally) one of my older children may interject, “Dad, the masculinity is getting a little toxic.”

Joking aside, a proper vision of masculinity is so important. The adjective "toxic" in front of the noun "masculinity" may suggest that any and all expressions of masculinity are toxic. This is not the case. The Bible has good news for men: A vision of manhood that is strong, sacrificial, proactive, and humble.
Beginning October 17 and continuing for six weeks, we will explore the biblical vision of manhood. This will be a breakfast meeting at 7:30 at the church. I’ll have a few guest speakers, good food, and good discussion on an important subject. Gentlemen, I really hope you will join me.

Warmly,
David

A note from Pastor David Glade:
We are having such a great week! Our Vacation Bible School (VBS), Destination Dig: Unearthing the Truth about Jesus, is off to a great start. Let me mention a few things I am grateful for:

· A lot of happy kids. As I write, I hear kids laughing outside my office and the pitter-patter of up and down the hall. It is so important that young people develop good memories of their church.
· Great volunteers. A few weeks ago, we were short on volunteers. Many who have not volunteered before, who don’t have kids attending, stepped up and stepped in. Thank you!
· Great youth leaders. Many of the youth from our church are volunteering in significant ways: leading games, groups, songs, etc. They are making a big impact, and they are developing a "taste" for service in God’s church.
· Great space. This is the first VBS we have hosted in our space, and it just looks wonderful! As I have said in the past, a permanent church building is not everything, but, it is definitely something. We’ve been able to set up, leave it up, and put the space to work.

As the week progresses, please keep our VBS in your prayers. Pray that the seeds of God's words would find good soil in these young lives; for energy and zeal for our staff and leaders; and finally, safety and health for all!

Warmly,
David

A note from Pastor David Glade...

"For six years you shall sow your land and gather in its yield, but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow…" Exodus 23:10-11

I’m no farmer, but I understand this verse: Soil is worn out if depleted of its nutrients by constant planting. The capacity of the soil to nourish a seed is restored by a year of rest.

I just returned from some extended time away: some travel with the family (see picture of a few of us coming down from the base camp of Mt. Rainier!) and some work on my dissertation. My thanks to our lay-leadership for allowing extended time away, and my thanks to the staff for leading the church in my absence.

Prior to my departure, I felt depleted, tired from the last year, the stress, and the seemingly constant stream of important decisions. Rest has, at least in part, restored my capacity. I feel a little more patient, have a little more perspective, and a little more capable of facing whatever the next season brings. Just like soil, our capacity is restored by rest.
I hope you have been able to rest this summer. The bible takes rest seriously. So should we.
Warmly,
David
