Upon entering one such village she heard the women singing a beautiful song in their native tongue. Touched, she just had to know what these women were singing. She made her way over to one of the women who spoke English and asked what the words were. To her surprise the African woman explained that they were singing, "make sure you boil the water, it will keep you from getting dysentery." Sometimes we fail to stop and think about what we are communicating with the words we sing in worship. It may sound great, but if we are not aware of what we are saying the attempt at worship is futile. That is why this week we continued our study on "why we do what we do in worship" with a look at singing. Ephesians 5:19 served as our text, teaching us that singing should be to the Lord, to each other and from the heart. This Sunday we will look at the purposes behind the Lord's Supper. If you want to learn more, come be a part of this relaxed, kid-friendly, Christ- centered environment. At Perkins Church of Christ we have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, in faith unity, in opinions liberty, and in all things love.

Agra Baptist Church by Lois Sumrall There are many churches having Vacation Bible Schools now. We pray you have enrolled your children in some of them.

Today's message "First Things First", Luke 9:56-62. Bro. Roger reminded us the concept of Jesus first is fundamental to the Christian life. Matt. 10: 37-39. We are to put Jesus before the future, think it through first. Christ does not do away with temptation or trails. His life was full of both. A commitment to Christ is not getting away from all problems of the future, we need to weigh the future both with Christ and without Him. Some are too quick to say I'm doing fine, later I'U make a commitment. We do not THE PERKINS JOURNAL r Thursday June 26, 2003-9 know how much time we have. We are to put Jesus before the present, we need to trust in the lord, have faith God will provide for all things. We are to read and study the Word of God, the Bible, so we know how to fight the battle against Satan daily: how to reach the lost, how to live for Jesus. We are to put Jesus before the past. When Jesus calls, be ready to .serve. Don't say I will follow, but wait until I do my "thing" tirst. Luke 16:13 says we can not serve two masters. Jesus says "Put me befie your past and don't look back." Are you one of these three people, "to say I will follow, but mlething el is on your mind; or you want to delay your answer or something else is more important first?" To you Jesus says - you will be disappointed. We should answer as the disciples who, when they heard Jesus call tt them, left everything to follow Him. Matt. 4:18-22. Will you put first things first and follow Jesus'? First Christiml Church by Charles Wall Sunday, keonne brought a message, "Rejecting the Heavenly Gift" from Hebrews 5:11 to 6:11. When aperson rejects the way of God, who previously had experienc God's goodness, that person crucifies the Son of God all over again. The business of a Christian is to make disciples of others. A person needs to be faithfid to Christ in order to teach others. Abby Whitmore sang a special, "We Are Standing on Holy Ground.'" Her daughter, Amy sang, "Day by Day." Both specials were very inspir- ing, and were appropriate to lxonne's message. Saturday, June 28, the Quilt Club will meet at 10 a.m. AI on Saturday will be a youth swimming party at Cushing Water Fun Park.
