,Making our Lives Count Sometimes in life we make mistakes. If you were to ask Kathy, you could find out that I have made lots of them. Not making the right sandwiches for the kids for lunches, driving too fast to earn a ticket or how about this one…you get the point. Well, I have to be honest and tell you, I made a mistake by not keeping pace with what came to know as—10-10-10! As your Pastor, I am responsible to help you grow and develop in your walk with God and have sensed that it is easy to stop practicing the basics of our faith. So, I want to encourage you to… Begin today by reading the Bible for 10 minutes a day-this way, we can stay strong and healthy in our journey with Christ. Pray for OUR church for 10 minutes—so much happens in our church on a weekly basis and we need your prayers. Please pray for health, protection and the blessing of God over ALCC. Lastly, please give 10% of your income to ALCC—the Bible is clear about being generous and I would encourage you to practice this important principle. Why the apology? I think I have not been encouraging this enough and seen our church suffer with too much illness, not enough strength and lack of blessing. As your leader, I take this seriously and when the Holy Spirit mentioned to me to get back to the basics, it opened my understanding how important these three simple things are. Let’s make our lives count and practice 10-10-10…PB and Kathy

The BIG 10 has a first before the first command. I love Moses’ narrative/account of God and he had the privilege to lead God’s people out of Egypt and be their babysitter. A rule of babysitting is to make sure the children are fed. The first thing God addresses to the nation of Israel is found in Exodus 12. (Read!) God gives them instructions on feasts and a feast that will be forever known as the Passover. And If I’m one of them, the first thought in my head is, “God hasn't spoken in years and the first thing He wants from us is to have a meal?” Feasting wasn't anything new but the fact that the God who bloated out the sun, did that Nile thing, He finally decides to talk and He wants to have a meal. The first before the first shows that this powerful God is relational, is intimate, wants to sit down have a meal and be the One to rescue. (Echoed in Revelation 3:20) That’s the message, the usual and the unusual things will be asked of you and all you have to do is follow through showing confidence in God. He, God, says to them and to us today, “I want to be YOUR GOD and I want you to TRUST ME.” The Next Month: UNO. In this together, Tony Mejia

Step 2 :"We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity." Step Two is often referred to as "The Hope Step". In coming to believe that a Power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity, we will remember what it was like to live sanely and have the faith to hope that sanity can return. "What is faith?" the Bible asks. Hebrews 11: 1 "It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.� The Bible also tells us that the key to this hope is in the nature of the God we look to. We are told that "anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that there is a God and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him" (Hebrews 11: 6). Without Hope we are miserable. Hope is the driving force behind all recovery. If we had no Hope, there would be no possibility of recovery. Understanding who Jesus is gives each of us a Hope that can transcend even our deepest despair. Jesus' resurrection forms the basis of our Hope because in it God demonstrated His power over death.

Deb Fisher CR Director Join us for our monthly Pot Luck Dinner Nov.21 6:15 pm

We may have learned a long time ago that hoping only brings disappointment. Our hopes were dashed. The promises we believed were broken. We were left feeling like fools for ever hoping in the first place. But perhaps we were devastated because we put our hope in the wrong place. Turning our life over to God means placing our Hope and confidence in Him instead of people, who will disappoint us. When we place all of our hope and trust in other people, it's like expecting a tree to flourish in a barren desert. People will disappoint us and are unable to satisfy our deepest needs. Trusting God changes everything. In John 4: 14 Jesus says "the water I give becomes a perpetual spring within them, giving them eternal life."
