8-THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, December 13, 2001 Eden Chapel by Bob Hilley The Rudd family led the lighting of the Advent wreath for the second week in Advent. Then Rev. Max Rudd used Isaiah 11:1-10 and Romans 15:1-13 as his text for a message entitled "A Sacred Welcome." He said that we are called to be a community of hope and hospitality. Our hope comes from living in God's kingdom in the present time and in that joy we should share our blessings with others. Max called this a contagious attitude that can spread to others. Clyde the Camel came by. He said that he liked the special way that people look at him this time of year. He can tell by the twinkle in their eyes that he makes them think about Christmas and wise men and the Baby Jesus. But he said that it saddens him to know that soon after Christmas people will look at him with disgust or fear. He wished that we could have Christmas in our hearts all year long so maybe we would treat camels--and everyone--a little bet- ter. The choir sang "Come, Let Us Adore Him." There were 78 in church and 40 in Sunday school. . Sunday evening was the annual Sweets and Treats Variety Show. As usual, there was some marvelous talent on display: This year's event was hosted by a 203-year-old Ebenezer Scrooge and his ge- riatric care staff, who found out a thing or two about the real mean- ing of Christmas. Next Sunday morning's services will feature special presenta- tions by the choir and by the children's Sunday school classes. That evening will be the combined children's program at Lost Creek starting at 7 p.m. On Christmas Eve, we will have our annual candle- light service at 6 p.m. Our regular Sunday morning worship begins at 9:30, followed by snack fellowship and Sunday school at 11:00. Please come join us and other area congregations for this wonderful celebration. Agra Baptist Church by Lois Sumrall As we get caught up in the commercial side of the season let's remember the true reason. As we plan and attend parties, plan and attend programs, dinners, or buy-wrap gifts, put strings upon strings (rf lights up, let's have a great time, enjoy the beauty of lights and decorations. But enjoy the love of Jesus daily, too. This morning, Bro. Roger Shaw's message was on how Baptists are different from some other religions. The world changes daily, the people change, then some people'are not here that were yester- clay. Some changes are good, like change clothes, bad habits, bad books, movies, etc. Some are dangerous and evil, changing of od's word to suit one's worldly life. We are free to worship as where we wish, and not hide to keep from persecution. We can even read, and study the bible openly. Baptists have always had a |mple form of worship. They don't wear robes so others know .ho we are, nor pray loudly to God but worship the one and only understand. We should live like Christians at all times. To be Christ like and to keep gods commandments is to know him. As God's child, if we break the commandments, we sin. James 1:10, and God will chastise his own. Bro. Roger used Matthew 11:41-46 to introduce the message of "Who is this Child." Some say, "Son of David", as this was the sovereign king over all. The rightful king deserved the throne, the rejected king and returning king, Son of Mary, supernatural one. He taught in the temple at the age of 12. Jesus returned to his own country teaching and healing. People wondered where the wisdom and power came from. Son of Man, a servant giving up riches, came to heal the sick and lame and tend the poor, to minister to all men. Son of GOd, savior, child at crucifixion, in Matthew 17:54. They knew Jesus truly was the Son of GOd, the only sacrifice that took away sin. What are you going to do with Jesus today? First Christian Church by Charles Wall Sunday, Leonne brought us a message, "Power in the Name" from Luke 1:31-33. God has always put importance into the mean- ing of names. The name Jesus means "Jehovah's Savior." There is hope and power and reality in his name. Jesus said that where at least two or three are gathered in his name, he will be there. Our prayers are to be made in his name. The Holy Spirit is given in his name. We are baptized in his name; we are saved in his name, and we wear his name as the Bride of Christ. Haelee Marr sang a special, "I have Decided to Follow Jesus." Then she and Katie Pressley and Amanda Berna were baptized into Christ. The ice cream supper for the Sunday school contest winners will be Wednesday evening, December 12 at 6:30 p.m. Choir practice is at 5:30 p.m. and bible study is at 7 p.m. Thursday will be the Perkins Main Street Christmas Program at 6 p.m. downtown.

It is used to know right from wrong in words all can Church of Christ by Terry Tharp I'm always reminded during this time of the year that life living. The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ came that we might life to the fullest. It takes understanding that in order to really a meaningful life. Most people aren't really living. They're just existing. Do find yourself getting up in the morning, going to work or to coming home, watching TV, going to bed and then repeating over and over year after year? That's not living, that's just ing. Many people do that until they die. They never really are alive. A meaningful life is tbund in a relationship with God Jesus Christ. The world has rejected this often because critical believers who profess one thing and practice totally other, because of rituals and ceremonies that seem to have no ing and just an over all lack of relevance. Those are the true ings of many who reject Christianity. The challenge for Christians today is to present the religion as God intended for it to be, a relationship with God changes lives and fills them with meaning and purpose. minister of the Perkins Church of Christ I believe that's what you will find when you join us in worshipping the one only God of heaven and earth.
