July Birthdays Birthday Blessing

‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ Exodus 19:4-6

August 2012

Your Declaration of Independence The Month of July is marked by Independence Day: July 4th. It is of course the day we celebrate the birth of our country and the gift of freedom. The document that started it all was signed on July 4, 1776. That document, now housed in the National Archives in Washington DC, is called the "Declaration of Independence". In some ways it is the document that makes us Americans. Similarly there is a statement for Christ followers that makes us Christians. The Christian Declaration of Independence is found in the words of the Apostle Paul recorded in Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then in freedom and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Some see all religions, including Christianity, as restrictive and

binding. They want to be free of such constraints. They might be surprised that the Bible agrees with them. As followers of Christ we are called to be free. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Jesus wants us to live as free people and He accomplished our liberation by dying and rising again. Christ sets us free from the failures of our past and present, and from the fears of our present and future. Yet sometimes we do not feel free from our failures when we are weighed down with guilt. Or free from our fears when we are worried and afraid. If Christ has set us free, why do we not feel free? Well the second part of verse one tells us that it is possible for us to let ourselves be burdened by a yoke of slavery. What we need is our own personal Declaration of Independ(Continued on page 6)

Sun @ 9-10:00am “...by Finding Contentment”

Thursday CMF On summer hiatus (Attendance is always open.)

Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Romans 8:20-22

Watch Out for Out of Bounds! The Christian life is a lot like the terrain at Jackson Hole—dangerous and steep with life-threatening hazards blocked by off-limit signs and yellow tape. Yes, there's plenty of room to run in the Christian life. But there are hazardous areas to avoid if we don't want to get hurt. Our flesh calls out to us to swerve toward those enticing out-of-bounds runs. It wants nothing more than to hurtle us over a cliff and end our witness. Get it straight now. The most discontent man around is the one who's still wrestling with his flesh. If you're standing on the precipice of an out-of-bounds run—or if you are already heading down one—you're discontented to the max. Sin has gotten the best of you, and you are in for more than a thrilling ride. You're in for death! In Galatians 5, Paul says that we either go the way of the flesh or we go the way of the

SUMMER: A TIME TO REMEMBER

SUMMER is a perfect time to spread a little SUNSHINE. We go through some sad times, times of anxiety, times of loneliness, as well as happy times and times of celebration. These are all a part of life. Through little acts of kindness, we can bring encouragement and assure others of God's love. We at Christ Community Church can put our "faith in action". Would you like to make someone's world a BRIGHTER place? This SUMMER, the Care Ministry is coordinating the baking, packing, and delivery of small bags of home-baked cookies to be distributed during the month of July. (Continued next page)

Spirit. He doesn't mean they are equal forces in a man's life, but he does say it's a choice each of us has to make: spiritual death or spiritual life. So stay in bounds. Go the way of the Spirit. There is plenty of adventure on that path. One of the common misunderstandings about the Christian life is that it is boring and Christians just don't know how to have fun. Who are we kidding? The Spirit of God offers a different way down the mountain. It's still plenty steep—but it leads to unending joy.

Member’s Corner

Sociable Seniors HOW ABOUT A PICNIC? The weather is warming up--seems like a perfect time to enjoy a picnic "out of doors".

“Trust Also in Him!”

The team gathered and began discussing the plan. Never did I hear any doubt or questioning whether this venture would work, only focused discussion on the particulars of this our first Chili Cook-off: where to set up, what equipment was needed, games to provide for the kids. I hadn’t been a primary lead before, and I kept my thoughts quiet, fears that this was not going to work, while I road on the wings of the others’ confidence. The first Sunday of sign-ups for chili cookers came . . . 7 in all! Encouraged, but we were still in need of so many more! I knew so much was out of my control from contestant sign-ups to those who would actually attend, but my only hope was offering this event up believing that our intentions were right: raising funds to get as many kids as possible to attend camp to experience the life changing power that is unparalleled to any

other. Of course the added benefit was church fellowship and outreach to our community. So much potential from one event! Soon the Ministry Fair came and contestant sign-ups brought the count up to 17! Then it seemed the event took on a life of its own. Excitement began to generate about: which recipes to use, what to name the team, how to decorate the booth, what should the team attire look like. What a pleasure to witness! Three more sign-ups came in within the last four days (2 from the community!) putting the total contestant count at 20! But we had planned for 18 . . . a problem we were glad to deal with. Event day has now come and gone, and as we ride in the wake of a great chili cook-off, notes have been taken from the many surveys received (thank you for the helpful input!) and from our own observations. We learned a lot, and I am grateful for so much: an optimistic co-leader (Sue French), great team members (Sam Bartlett, Desiere Hernandez, Mike Stone, Ray French, Roger Nixon), willing contestants, a

(Continued on page 6) “Member’s Corner” is a place to encourage each other in the faith.

The high school ministry is off and running for our summer of relationships; that is: consecutive series and discussions about dating, Godly character, and having the best life possible. As you can imagine, a series about such things has stirred some great conversations and very significant life changes. I am currently getting our final paperwork in for our HM summer camp and we will be back just in time for July. I’d like to thank all of you that gave at both the chili cook-off and car wash fundraisers! It was a great way for our youth to be a part of our church as a whole.

Tyler Thompson Our Heritage of Song

(continued from p.1—Declaration of Independence)

ence where we declare ourselves free from our failures. The power of our bad habits is broken; the pang of guilt is removed when we affirm "Christ has set me free". We need our own personal Declaration of Independence where we declare ourselves free from our fears. Perfect love drives out fear and the peace of Christ rules our hearts as we affirm "Christ has set me free." One of my favorite lines from the hymn "in Christ Alone" comes in the last verse that says, "No guilt in life, no fear in death. This is the power of Christ in me. From life's first cry to final breathe Jesus commands my destiny." If you are feeling bound by failures or fears, maybe it is time for you to have your own personal Independence Day and make your Declaration of Independence: "Christ has set me free and free I will live." That is true freedom. And that is something worth celebrating. Happy Independence Day! Pastor Doug Scholten

A couple months ago, we began looking at how various people in the Old Testament responded to the goodness of God in their lives. We can see that singing praise to God isn’t just something we do, instead, it penetrates to the very heart of who we are as the body of Christ. Because worship to God is an integral response as we grow in our relationship with Him, the Bible is filled with this cause and effect of people in worship. Known best as “a man after God’s own heart”, King David was such a man who demonstrated the effect of one engaged in worship. In spite of bad choices and wrongdoings, (continued from p.3—”Trust Also in Him”) he continued to hunger for God’s presence and worship our great set-up team and event helpers, a church family willing to donate so much, and especially a God who offers abundant All Mighty God. peace and assurance when a plan is offered up to Him. The Ark Brought to Jerusalem Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. Psalm 37:5 I Chronicles 16 tells of the event when the ark was brought to Jerusalem and the response of God’s people. The following is a letter received from one of the members of David’s response to God’s faithfulness was one of worship Remedy One, the band that played the morning of the cook-off: and praise to the Lord.

Many thanks to Jeff, a long-standing friend of CCC, for his generosity and permission to print his letter to offer encouragement to our congregation, as I was so touched when I first read his letter. And for those who didn’t take the on-line survey, curious about how much was raised for our kid’s camps? Now that a final figure has been reached, which is higher than the on-line survey since additional money came in, here it is . . . $3,182.50! Thank you again to all who participated to make this such a successful, first-time chili cook-off and for your generous support of our kids! To see the winners of the contest for best chili by popular vote, best chili by judge panel vote, best decorated booth, and best team attire, see our church website under our “For Members” tab.

Mission Sunday: Announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ throughout the world!

The LOGO team normally meets the fourth Monday night of the month at 7:00pm. (this month we’re meeting 7/2 to prepare for Mission Sunday). Team members are welcome to join us for one event at a time or stay on through a number of events as we propose and engage in projects that provide opportunities for our congregation, support our community, and reach out to our world with the love of Jesus.

Birthday Blessings The month begins with celebrations galore, The sparklers flare, The rockets soar. The weather is now warming, the sun shines out, And the beach goers are flocking and milling about. The pace each day begins to slow just a bit, And it’s nice to relax longer moments and sit. Yet this month brings on something else to do, It’s the biggest and best thing meant especially for you! And although there are several who celebrate at this time, The day is your own so have a great time. And of course Happy Birthday with love and prayers your way, Because the desire for you is an absolutely spectacular day!

Teresa Nixon

The morning is sure to encourage, inspire, and inform you of how the good news is being proclaimed at home and abroad. Come broaden your understanding of God’s mission in the world: Where it Goes. . . Who is Reached . . . What is Done . . . More about the morning and speaker is provided in the July 1 bulletin insert.
