Class of 2020 Stephen Ministers

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
The Class of 2020 Stephen Ministers at First Christian Church is nearing completion, with three class sessions left before the class is commissioned on Sunday, September 13, 2020. Our trainees have worked hard, and their dedication is paying off.  The course has involved pre-class reading assignments and in-class lecture, discussion, and role playing. Our trainees are showing some real growth in their knowledge and skills. Skill practicing has been a very valuable component. It takes what was taught each week from the realm of theory and turns it into something practical that can be applied to real-life circumstances. Role-playing can be challenging. ...

Moving Forward

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
MOVING FORWARD!!  I sure have missed seeing each of you, and I am very much looking forward to the day we get to, once again, come together for worship.  As you know, our government leaders have said that churches may begin worshiping together as early as this coming Sunday, and you may have been wondering about our plan for re-assimilation.  Last week, when we began to hear that our civic leaders were planning to ease up on some of the restrictions, I met virtually with our regional minister and other clergy around the state to discuss this matter.  There was a great deal of concern...

A Word From Pastor Shannon

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Greetings, Church FamilyI cannot tell you how much I miss seeing each one of you on Sunday mornings (and at other times during the week).  I am certainly looking forward to the day when we can begin to meet face-to-face once again.  I am, however, grateful that we have found new (and not-so-new) ways to stay in touch in the midst of social-distancing.  I am still waiting to hear from our government officials as to when we might be able to resume worshiping together in the sanctuary; and I will let you know just as soon as I know more.  Until...

The Lenten season begins next week.  Can you believe it?  We will start the season with our Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday, February 26 at 7:00 p.m.  In preparation for that service, I encourage you to be prayerful about one thing in your life that prevents you from having a rich, transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.  Maybe it is a habit you just can’t break, or an addiction that has too strong a grip on you.  Maybe it is pride (or reverse-pride, that being low self-esteem), greed, envy, gluttony, or sloth. Or maybe it is fear, guilt, shame, unforgiveness, or a...

Stephen Ministry

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
A Possible New Mission for FCC Moore – Stephen Ministry  A few weeks ago, I was reading a book about stewardship titled Not Your Parent’s Offering Plate by J. Cliff Christopher in preparation for our recent sermon series “Outside Our Own Little World.”  In the book, the author mentions that people faithfully support organizations when three things exist.  First, the organization has a clear vision and mission.  Secondly, the organization has capable and dedicated staff and leadership who are committed to lead the organization toward achieving its goals in carrying out its vision and mission.  Lastly, there is an understanding that the...

Exciting Week at FCC Moore

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Exciting Week at FCC Moore! What an exciting week we had at FCC Moore this past week.  The week started with several of us visiting the home of Sherri and Mike Peters for Bible Journaling.  I want to thank Sherri for welcoming us each month into her scrap-booking shop for this time to reconnect with one another as we decorate our journaling Bibles, have an opportunity to visit and share a meal together, and pray for one another.  If you have the availability to join us on the first Tuesday of the month, but have not done so as of yet, I...

Pray, Pray, Pray

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Over the course of the summer, several in the congregation have been participating in a summer study series on the subject of prayer.  I am grateful for each one who has taken time out of their schedule to participate, and it is my hope and prayer that each one’s prayer life has been enriched in some way as a result of learning some new things.  In my humble opinion, prayer is the most powerful tool we have in our spiritual toolbox.  I sometimes wonder, however, if it is sorely underused.  We may think of prayer as our going to God to...

“The Power Of Prayer”

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
  SUMMER STUDY SERIES ON PRAYERled by Pastor Shannon  Ephesians 6:18 says, “…praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.”  In other words…pray at all times and in all situations!  But how can we pray at all times?  For what sorts of things are we to pray?      I will cover some ancient (and more modern) prayer practices, praying the scriptures (which will include some hands-on activities to help you find prayers to pray in every situation), spiritual warfare prayers, praying for change...

The Power Of Prayer

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Ephesians 6:18 says, “…praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.”  In other words…pray at all times and in all situations!  But how can we pray at all times?  For what sorts of things are we to pray?  It seems to me that the majority of the time, we Christians pray mostly for what I call “well-being prayers.”  We pray for health issues, comfort, job issues, and family issues.  All of these are great things for which to pray, but I wonder if sometimes we...

SLOW DOWN!!

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
"SLOW DOWN"  It is hard to believe that we are just two weeks away from the beginning of Lent.  For many of us, this is a time of deep spiritual introspection.  It is a season of the year in which we are encouraged to slow down, to think about what is most important in our life, to allow God to show us where we fall short, and to heal the areas of our life that are broken.  Jesus went to the cross on our behalf so we would experience freedom from the bondage that often exists in our life as a...
