Dear Church Family,

In our reading this morning as a family we read these beautiful words:

Many are inquiring, “How am I to make the surrender of myself to God?” You desire to give yourself to Him, but you are weak in moral power, in slavery to doubt, and controlled by the habits of your life of sin. Your promises and resolutions are like ropes of sand. You cannot control your thoughts, your impulses, your affections. The knowledge of your broken promises and forfeited pledges weakens your confidence in your own sincerity, and causes you to feel that God cannot accept you; but you need not despair. What you need to understand is the true force of the will. This is the governing power in the nature of man, the power of decision, or of choice. Everything depends on the right action of the will. The power of choice God has given to men; it is theirs to exercise. You cannot change your heart, you cannot of yourself give to God its affections; but you can choose to serve Him. You can give Him your will; He will then work in you to will and to do according to His good pleasure. Thus your whole nature will be brought under the control of the Spirit of Christ; your affections will be centered upon Him, your thoughts will be in harmony with Him.
Desires for goodness and holiness are right as far as they go; but if you stop here, they will avail nothing. Many will be lost while hoping and desiring to be Christians. They do not come to the point of yielding the will to God. They do not now choose to be Christians.

Friday, December 31

Dear Church Family,

As we begin the new year, let us remember to pause and reflect on our current walk with Jesus! Have we grown in our walk with Him this past year? If yes, how so? If not, how come? Consider your daily routine and habits. What incremental adjustments can you make each month to inch yourself day by day, month by month, closer to Jesus! You know it is the most important discussion you can have with yourself at this time.

As you think of ways to grow and develop your devotional time, here are some helpful tips you might consider:

  1. Remember our reading and prayer are for the purpose of knowing Jesus as a Savoiur and friend, not merely to know facts. How can my study time reach this desire better.
  2. While many argue that quality is more important than quantity, I believe they are basically the same. Look at the evidence in Jesus’ life. Clearly, quantity mattered as well as quality.
  3. Consider a reading plan? Perhaps you would like to read through the Bible in a year or a book of the Bible each quarter as the Sabbath School lesson often does. Or perhaps take a journey through the gospels with the Desire of Ages or a three year journey through the Bible along with the Conflict of the Ages as commentary. H.M.S. Richards used to read through the whole Bible each January to get the big picture and then read it again more slowly from Feb through Dec. The point is, have a plan.
  4. Bathe in God’s Word. Listen to the Word during your commute or while you exercise. Listen while you wash dishes or prepare supper. With apps like Youversion & Daily Audio Bible , you can listen to the Bible once a year or several times over the year. Here’s a helpful article on some of your online options. Some even like to listen while they read along. Depends perhaps on what kind of learning style you have. But saturate yourself with His Word! And here’s a great site for those training their little ones to do the same.
  5. After hearing Randy Skeete, you might be more inpsired to memorize Scripture. Elder Skeete told me that he doesn’t have a photographic memory. It’s just rigorous practice. Here’s a simple app to assit you if you prefer or old fashioned note cards can do the trick.
  6. Consider prayer journaling. I know my oldest son faithfully prayer journaled every day this past year. He never missed a day. Make that same committment. Write your prayers out to Jesus! I find it helps as it keeps you better focused in your prayer time. There are lots of ideas online for how to approach your time in prayer journaling.
  7. Pray with your Bible in hand. Make not only a prayer list but a list of promises to accompany that prayer list. Ask God to direct you in your search for promises. He wants to show you what He has for you.

My appeal is simple. Take this time of transition into a new year to reflect and recalibrate spiritually. Make small measurable goals that grow each month. Habits take 21 days to form and 63 days to stick. So be patient but be persistent and ask God to help you. This is something you can ask for in full confidence knowing He wants more than anything to reveal Himself to you more fully in 2022!!

In the news:

1.This afternoon from 2-4 p.m. the family of Lisa Johnson will receive friends and loved ones at Kiser Rose Hill Funeral home next to the church. Then at 4 p.m., there will be a celebration of life service in the chapel. I will be officiating. I thought I would include these pictures from Lisa’s baptism back in 2019. What a blessed event it was. She was so excited to be a part of our church family and we will miss her.

2. This Sabbath, John Hawkins will be sharing the morning message with a sermon entitled, “Who Are You?” I will be away for the weekend visiting family.

3. Mid-week service resumes this coming Wednesday at 7 p.m. via ZOOM. We are looking at James chapter 1. A ZOOM invite goes out via email at 5 pm each Wednesday.

4. Dinner with the Doctor is coming soon! Dr. Daniel Castro will present with a presentation entitled, “Diabetes: Essential Characteristics for Reversal.” This will take place Tuesday, January 11 at 6:30 p.m.

5. Join Dan Sanford and friends for a variety of musical selections and styles as we close the Sabbath, January 8 at 5 p.m. in the church Sanctuary. Please contact Dan if you would like to participate in the program or just bring your instrument.

6. After the service this Sabbath, please feel free to take a poinsettia and share it with someone. Also, a big thank you to Lynn Marsa for coordinating the beautiful decorations in the Sanctuary. It was all very beautiful!

7. Lynn Marsa asks for prayer this morning as her brother has suffered a brain bleed as well as a seizure. He is in the hospital in South Africa and his condition is very serious. Your prayers are appreciated.

Pastor Jeremy

Dear Church Family,

As we approach the Holy Sabbath hours, we may notice much of the world also pausing from their labors to celebrate but instead of Sabbath, it will be Christmas. How sad that while so many will exchange gifts tomorrow, they will neglect the wonderful gift of the Sabbath. While we can appreciate the Christmas season, tomorrow is first and foremost, the Holy Sabbath, a gift given us from the Creator Himself. Some may even question, is Christmas something we should acknowledge at all, much less celebrate? Here are some helpful resources on how we might relate to this season. Here is an article entitled, Ellen G. White & Christmas and another article entitled, “Should We Celebrate Christmas?” Lastly, here is a collection of quotations from Ellen White on the topic of Christmas. May God grant you and your family wisdom & direction as you seek His guidance in how to relate to this popular holiday. I know for our family, while we decorate and exchange gifts each Christmas season, when Christmas falls on Sabbath as it does this year, we choose Sabbath first, and exchange gifts before or after the Sabbath hours as we want to keep Sabbath first and foremost in our hearts. Also, this is a wonderful time to remind our children of the importance of giving to others and to missions and the church. And of course, it’s a wonderful time to remind them of the greatest gift of all, the gift of Jesus who came as a babe in Bethlehem.

In the news:

1.This Sabbath we will have Galina Timofeez and friends sharing music for Sabbath School & the worship hour. The message this Sabbath is entitled, “Do You See What I See?”

2. There will be no AYA this week nor will there be a mid-week service due to the holidays.

3. Remember as you plan your year end giving, that our annual Christmas offering this year has been designated for church lighting renovation. Once completed, the new lighting will allow for a much brighter sanctuary and foyer and the stained glass in the sanctuary will be illuminated at night. Plans are underway to install the new lighting system in March.

4. I am sad to share that we have had two members lose loved ones in the last couple of weeks and we also lost a member as well. Gayle Garrett lost her 46 year old daughter, her only child, a couple of weeks ago. Her daughter died due to a blood clot. Kim Veeley lost her mother this week. Kim had been serving as her caretaker for some time. Let’s remember Gayle & Kim in our prayers. We also lost Lisa Johnson this week. Lisa was only 59 and died in her sleep. I am so thankful for the testimony of her baptism not too long ago and her enthusiasm for her new found church family and faith. Let’s remember these families and those in our church family who have also lost loved ones this year. Come soon Lord Jesus!

5. Finally, here’s a message Pastor Jared & I wanted to share with you during this Christmas season.

In His Service,

Pastor Jeremy

Dear Church Family,

God tests and proves us by the common occurrences of life. It is the little things which reveal the chapters of the heart. It is the little attentions, the numerous small incidents and simple courtesies of life, that make up the sum of life’s happiness; and it is the neglect of kindly, encouraging, affectionate words, and the little courtesies of life, which helps compose the sum of life’s wretchedness. It will be found at last that the denial of self for the good and happiness of those around us constitutes a large share of the life record in heaven. And the fact will also be revealed that the care of self, irrespective of the good and happiness of others, is not beneath the notice of our heavenly Father.

White, E. G. (1952). The Adventist Home (pp. 108–109). Review and Herald Publishing Association.

In the news:

1. This Sabbath we will continue in our series on John and we will also celebrate the Lord’s supper together. Let us prepare our hearts in anticipation of this service. COVID precautions will remain in place for communion.

2. Our online mid-week service will not meet for the next two weeks due to the holidays but will resume on Wednesday, January 5th at 7 p.m. via ZOOM.

3. Our annual Christmas offering this year will go towards updating our church lighting. The sanctuary lights and the foyer lights will all be replaced with much more efficient and brighter lighting which will make for a better video stream as well as make it easier to read and see in the Sanctuary. The board also voted to have the stained glass lit so that at night the windows will be illuminated with light. Please mark your tithe envelope “Christmas Offering” as you plan your gift and as together, we care for the church sanctuary.

4. A prayer request has been made for God to watch over the container of printing equipment for Desert Tree Ministry.  The container was packed Wednesday (Dec. 15) here in Greeneville is in route. Pray for safety as this container travels to Doula, Cameroon, and on to Chad.

5. Evan Fox is getting married this Sunday, December 19, 2021 in Utah. It’s been exciting to watch Evan grow in the faith and now he’s studying for the ministry and is to be married. We are happy for him and please check their website for more details and pictures. Blessings Evan! Click here to learn more.

6. Liberty Magazine, the official church magazine on Religious Liberty, had an editorial recently that I felt was worthy of sharing with you. The article is entitled, “This Editorial Is Not About Abortion or Vaccine Mandates.”

Dear Church Family,

Came across this quote in my email this week and thought it worthy of sharing:

I once read a statement that said, “I can do all things with a Bible passage taken out of context”. And this explains why there are a lot of wrong teachings done in the name of the Bible. A Bible verse, without its context, quickly becomes the pre-text for one’s own ideas and agenda or whatever the interpreter wants to convey. When the Bible no longer functions as its own decisive norm for our theology, the text, taken out of context, only legitimized the preference of the individual, resulting in the Bible losing its liberating and corrective power” Frank Hasel, PhD Associate Director Biblical Research Institute

In the news:

  1. This Sabbath we will continue in our series on John with a look at the Crucifixion.
  2. There will be no AYA this Sabbath.
  3. This Sunday from 10-12 p.m., there will be a free roller skating social at the Twi-Lite Roller rink in Morrisown, TN. There will be a pizza lunch provided at 11:30 p.m. The event is free.
  4. The school will be participating in the Greeneville Christmas Parade in downtown Greeneville this Sunday. All are invited to the event which begins at 2 p.m.
  5. There will be a brief two agenda item church board meeting again this Monday at 7:30 p.m. via ZOOM.
  6. We will have a mid-week Bible study meeting this Wednesday at 7 p.m. via ZOOM to discuss our next study series and venue.
  7. Our board voted to make our annual Christmas offering go towards a new lighting system in the church sanctuary and foyer. This new system promises to provide much better light and yet blend in with our church structure so as not to be noticed. While the cost is significant, the board voted to move forward now as prices are rapidly increasing.
  8. A church business meeting is planned for Monday, December 13 at 7 p.m. via ZOOM. We decided to try ZOOM in hopes for a stronger attendance. The meeting is for the primary purpose of reviewing this years budget. Here is the proposed church budget for 2022 for those who would like to review it in advance. Two main areas of icrease are the church insurance so that we can be adequately covered in case of fire and also an increase in school subsidy and worthy student aid. The overall church budget proposal represents an increase of roughly 3%.
  9. Thank you for your prayers on behalf of the school as we sought to acquire the old church building in front of it. Sadly, as you may have seen in the paper, the request was denied. So we move forward, trusting God and his provision for us.
  10. The board voted to create a fund by which we can draw from when special needs arise in our communty. This community benevolent fund is for non-members and while not fundned by the budget, can be conributed to by marking you tithe envelope community benevolent fund,
  11. GAA is planning a sacred concert entitled, “Sing We Now of Christmas,” featuring choirs, handbells, band, strings, and scripture readings. The concert will be next Sabbath at 6 p.m. at the church. Note there was a mistake in the bulletin of 5:30 p.m. The correct time is 6 p.m.
  12. Esther Murray’s mother took a fall this week. Please keep her mom and the family in your prayers.
  13. You can pick up next quarter’s Sabbath School quarterly this Sabbath by visitig the literature room as you come in or go out the front door in the main nfoyer.
  14. Sometime back we had missionaries Deon & Rene who work with AFM share a report of their mision work which at the time was over in Iraq. Now they are serving in Cambodia and have sent this report about their current experience. They are appreciative of you prayers and support. image
  15. Isabel Robinson recently shared her testimony online about her journey with Jesus. If you would like to read her story, click here.

Dear Church Family,

Given what we have been hearing preached these past two weeks, I think this quote is rather fitting:

Many take it for granted that they are Christians, simply because they subscribe to certain theological tenets. But they have not brought the truth into practical life. They have not believed and loved it, therefore they have not received the power and grace that come through sanctification of the truth. Men may profess faith in the truth; but if it does not make them sincere, kind, patient, forbearing, heavenly-minded, it is a curse to its possessors, and through their influence it is a curse to the world.
The righteousness which Christ taught is conformity of heart and life to the revealed will of God. Sinful men can become righteous only as they have faith in God and maintain a vital connection with Him. Then true godliness will elevate the thoughts and ennoble the life. Then the external forms of religion accord with the Christian’s internal purity. Then the ceremonies required in the service of God are not meaningless rites, like those of the hypocritical Pharisees.

Dear Church Family,

Independent men of earnest endeavor are needed, not men as impressible as putty. Those who want their work made ready to their hand, who desire a fixed amount to do and a fixed salary, and who wish to prove an exact fit without the trouble of adaptation or training, are not the men whom God calls to work in His cause. A man who cannot adapt his abilities to almost any place if necessity requires is not the man for this time. Men whom God will connect with His work are not limp and fiberless, without muscle or moral force of character. It is only by continued and persevering labor that men can be disciplined to bear a part in the work of God. These men should not become discouraged if circumstances and surroundings are the most unfavorable. They should not give up their purpose as a complete failure until they are convinced beyond a doubt that they cannot do much for the honor of God and the good of souls.

Testimonies for the Church. (1855). (Vol. 3, p. 496). Pacific Press Publishing Association.

8. Jenny Jones, daughter of Sherry Conner had a mass in the brain removed this week and still has one or more to remove at a later time in her chest. She will be going to stay with her mom to recuperate when she is released from the hospital. Jenny is 4 months pregnant so please keep her, the baby, and the family in your prayers. Sherry is asking if anyone has a twin bed they could donate or loan, she would appreciate it as she needs a place for Jenny to sleep when she comes home.

Blessings as you prepare for the coming Sabbath!
