As you receive this journal we will be well into the second half of our series on Ephesians. As you may have noticed, we shifted the theme slightly to be faithful to the text. We can now focus on how Paul is dealing with what it practically looks darren mcclintock like for a people that have their identities Interim Senior Pastor grounded in what God says about them as the Church. Quite literally it is the “walking” out of the calling to be His people. This leads us to one of the core elements of the faith which is that the Church and those who are individual members of it are to be witnesses to their families, their work, their neighborhood, their city, and the world (Acts 1:8). It is far too easy for us to simply look to our own and stay within our comfort zones rather than taking this great calling to enter into the story of God and proclaim the good news to those who do not know it both verbally and through our actions. It is easy for us to say we want to see people delivered out of darkness, but the obvious question becomes, “Who will go?” For we know the truth, “But how are they to call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?” (Romans 10:14-15a).

We have been sent because we have been called. All of us should be playing some role in this cosmic story of redemption. Maybe your calling isn’t to move to India, maybe you haven’t been given the “gift” of evangelism. Does that really matter? Many have not been given the “gift” of teaching and yet is their calling to teach their children any less important or any less of a responsibility? If you do not communicate in some way to your waitress, neighbor, barista, or cashier, who will? If you do not participate in some way reaching out to the orphan or the refugee, who will? Is it not pleasing to the Lord? Is that not enough? James 1:27 says, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained form the world.”

But how are they to call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?”

On Being Witnesses...

Romans 10:14-15a

Church, we are all called to good works (Ephesians 2:10) and we are all empowered by the Spirit within us to accomplish them. Are you listening for His leading? Are you listening for His prompting? Are you taking steps to “walk” in a manner worthy of your calling? We are the very representation of Christ to a world in darkness; that is the way He has ordained it to be. We are to be His body empowered by His Spirit. I pray every time you see that Wichita flag that has become so popular, you are reminded of your calling to proclaim the excellencies of Him who has brought you out of darkness into marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9)

Dr. Paul Goddard Missions Pastor

“GOD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE” October marks our annual celebration of “Missions.” This year’s theme is “God of the Impossible.” You likely are aware that our church focuses on faithfully fulfilling both the Great Commission (Matthew 28.18-20) and on modeling our Lord’s love for “the least of these” (Matthew 25.40). Many of our “Kingdom-building” activities are initiated and supported through the efforts of our Missions and Outreach Ministry, plus by exciting and productive partnerships in our local community, the nation, and in over 30 countries around the world. This month our Missions celebration features guest speakers Dr. Don Davis and Huy Merritt, hosting representatives from international partners, sharing videos and stories of lives changed by the “God of the Impossible,” and issuing an invitation for you to join next summer’s short-term missions’ trips. Our God is alive and is still a miracle-working God. Don’t miss the inspirational teaching and testimonies by our guest speakers who play key roles in training and equipping pastors and ministry leaders in intercity U.S.A., jails and prisons, Southeast Asia, and other regions of our globe.

meet the family

Who is really leading Central Kids is blessed to have an amazing staff of people

that love God, love kids, and love serving. But, they are few in number and, despite all the rumors you might have heard, the children’s ministry is growing! We need more like the ones I would like to introduce to you this month. These hard working, steadfast leaders are committed to serving your Kindergarten–3rd grade kids on a regular basis and they love what they do! Anybody who has had children in Central Kids over the past decade has probably been made aware of the special family named Wibowo. These people, all of them, even grandma when she comes to visit, serve during every service on Sunday, plus special events and most prep work! I often call them my “not normal volunteers” because they don’t come just to fill a service once a month. They come prepared to help any child of any age or ability come to know who God is. They are fabulous! Anitra Welch and Darla Mills have come on board in the past couple of years. They signed up for one, began serving two, and have recently stepped up to be leaders in a weekly small group. I have seen Anitra walk through a very tough time of life during which she never wavered in her faith in God, her loyalty to church, or her joy in life. Darla, doesn’t even have a kid who ever attended here, but she does have some nieces and nephew who do and she wanted to be part of their lives. She didn’t know Anitra when she signed on, but now they are the newest dynamic duo! Nancy Moore is a woman with strong faith and traditional beliefs. She totally “dies to self and lives for Christ”! She comes prepared to lead children in small group on Sunday and returns to help with AWANA on Wednesday night. Nancy lost her husband within the last year and took off a few weeks to spend with him on hospice, but returned to ‘her’ kids as soon as she could. Truly an example! My friend Shelbie Messman walked in the church one day and offered to help. No kids, no grandkids. Do you think that’s weird? I kinda did. I put her through the paces and couldn’t find fault in any part of her. She started coming right away, made friends with the other volunteers and the kids,

8


the kids? and leads a small group like a trained pro! How is that, you might ask? JUST LIKE JESUS! Oh yeah, and did I mention, she made our Base Camp fence and bakes a great cake, too! There are also a good number of teen and preteen helpers that come regularly. They are invaluable and make serving fun! Ask any new kid, shy kid, or kindergartener, “Who is your favorite helper?” and they will reach for the young ones every time. Volunteers who serve like these wonderful people are few. We have a couple of faithful volunteers who serve in The Summit with Tina Nickel, a couple in Friendship Valley with Stephanie Balke, and a few in the nursery. But the kids, your kids, need so much more! Relationships cannot happen when the bulk of the volunteers come only once a month or less. Not every person is called by God to serve in children’s ministry, but every person is called to serve. Building, painting, cutting, counting, gluing (the list goes on and on) could be done by someone just like you. Come. Be a part. Change the future — Theirs... and Yours!

“Let us not become weary in doing good…” Galatians 6:9

Just when things seem to be going smoothly, a natural disaster like Hurricane Harvey creates instant chaos. Families in South Texas have been displaced, some have lost their lives and much work has to be done to recover from the destruction caused by the devastating winds and flooding rains. All of this just before a holiday weekend! Even as this article is being written, Hurricane Irma threatens to wreak havoc from the Atlantic! As Christians in Wichita, KS, what should be our response to the overwhelming needs of the many families in these disaster areas? Many of us are busy helping families in our own community…how can we possibly contribute any worthwhile help to the overwhelming needs of others? Will we become weary in doing good? First of all, we can pray. God desires to have conversations with each of us and He answers every prayer! He appreciates our concern for others and will intervene on their behalf because of our petitioning the Throne of Grace and Mercy! During the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, there have been many answered prayers that many of us have heard about through friends, social media and trusted news sources. When we pray for others, we develop a renewed appreciation and concern for them even when we don’t know them personally. Regardless of the circumstances, God is in control and He loves each of us with an unconditional love that is hard for us to comprehend. There are also other practical ways in which we can help the folks in affected areas. His Helping Hands (HHH) is primarily concerned with providing furniture, appliances and other household goods for our needy clients in Wichita. In conjunction with our work here, we collaborate with other furniture banks. HHH is a member of the Furniture Bank Association of North America (FBANA) as is the Houston Furniture Bank. I have discussed the situation with the Director of the Houston Furniture Bank, Oli Mohammed. Fortunately, they had minimal damage in their furniture warehouse and Oli is preparing to help thousands of families in the Houston area. As the recovery and rebuilding efforts progress in Texas, we will keep in contact with the Houston Furniture Bank and let you know of any ways that we can help them. In the meantime, please continue to pray for the families there who are rebuilding their lives, and those in other areas of the country who may be facing the same situation in the coming months! Thank you for your concern for the needs of others. Through God’s grace, we will never grow weary in doing good and helping others in the name of Jesus Christ!

peaceful communication By Liz Miller lmft

How hard is communicating anyway? Do you ever feel like it’s something so simple, but yet can tend to become so much more complicated than we ever would’ve imagined? How is it that communication can bring such joy and pleasure, but also be the source of great pain, heartache and misunderstandings? “The reality is, everything we do or say communicates SOMETHING.” David Grossman Communication is all around us, but not many of us take the time to truly analyze and understand what effects our communication has on others…and on ourselves! David Grossman has another saying: “You cannot...not communicate.” That is one of the phrases that stuck out the most to me from my days in graduate school. Whether we intend to or not, we are constantly communicating various messages whether we utilize actual words, or use nonverbal language of some sort to relay our message. Whether you are talking with your spouse, friend, coworker, or child, each time you say something, your message contains two parts: What you say – the content How you say it – the style

16

According to the book, Collaborative Marriage Skills, what you say matters; however, how you say something often makes the greatest impact on your communication. Your verbal or nonverbal style is a command or relational message. It tells others how to take your message about the content, whether you are joking, angry, unsure, or serious. It also conveys a caring or uncaring attitude. So how can we become better communicators?

A few first steps include building our own understanding and awareness of the verbal and nonverbal skills we utilize on a daily basis. Verbal Skills: 1. Your words — Choose your words wisely. Words have power. When you speak, use your words carefully. “Our words have the power to destroy and the power to build up” Proverbs 12:6. 2. Your emotions —The emotions you communicate while speaking are vital. Emotions can be a very effective communicator. Allowing yourself to cry can show a side of you to others that communicates that you are a person of passion who, while being a hard-charging person who desires success, also has a tender side. “There is a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance...” Ecclesiastes 3:4.


Nonverbal Skills What you say affects how you communicate, certainly, but just as important is what you don’t say. Yes, your nonverbal communication has a major impact on how well you communicate. 3. Your Eyes ­— The eyes can be a very powerful tool in communication. You know the old saying, “the eyes are the window to your soul”? It’s true. Think of what a mother communicates to her newborn when she gazes into their eyes, or what a couple says without words when they look into each other’s eyes. The eyes speak volumes. “Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude” Colossians 4:2. Have you spoken with someone who is constantly looking around? What does that communicate? A lack of interest in what you have to say. When you speak to someone, look at them. Give them your attention with your eyes. Listen to them with your eyes. Communicate with them that they are important and that you desire to be present with them in the moment. 4. Your Arms ­— Some people don’t even realize when they’re “closed off” to someone else by crossing their arms when the other person is speaking. Those who study this tell us that crossing the arms is a surefire way to close yourself off from the other person. It communicates closure, fear and opposition. “My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him” Psalm 89:21. How can you apply these skills to your relationships today to become a more effective communicator? “Let us pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another” Romans 14:19.
