Water Baptism, Sunday, November 16

aaron 2014 - CopyWe are having water baptisms this Sunday!

When Jesus chose to be baptized in water, He stated that it was necessary to “fulfill all righteousness (Mt. 3:15).” This doesn’t mean water baptism saves us, but if we refuse to be baptized in water there is something incomplete in our walk with Christ.

Water baptism is an act that God requires of every believer.

You never read of an un-baptized Christian anywhere in the Bible.

A wedding ring is an outward sign that a person is married.
A military uniform is an outward sign that a person serves in a specific branch of the armed forces.
Similarly, water baptism is a symbol designed by God to identify a person as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

Ultimately, it all goes back to Jesus’ statement in John 14:15. “If you love me, keep my commandments.”

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to e-mail, text or call me. I would love for you to make this step of obedience this Sunday.

Thanksgiving Blessing, 2014

Our annual Thanksgiving Blessing is rapidly approaching.  We will provide a Thanksgiving meal, including a fresh turkey, to friends in our community.  This is a tangible way we can let people know that God loves them.

You can help in two ways:

– Each Thanksgiving basket cost $25.  Your contributions will help us bless more people.  You can make your donation now by clicking here.

– You can volunteer for the event, which takes place on the morning of November 22 in the Goodwill Parking Lot on New Shackle Rd. in Hendersonville. Volunteer check-in is at 8:00 a.m.,  and the give-away will start at 9:00 a.m.

We will also have need for volunteer to pack the meals, the night before, so if you can come to the church lobby at
6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 21 to prepare the boxes for food.

This is our seventh year in a row to do this outreach, and we want to reach more people than every before!Your generosity will make the difference, so ask the Lord how you can contribute.

Costa Rica Trip, 2015

Costa Rica 2015

Are you ready to go on an adventure with God and CIL friends? We are already planning for our 2015 Costa Rica Mission Trip. The last two years, Alex Lute has led a group to the Carpia area near San Jose, CR, where poverty and limited opportunities have negatively effected generations. Our team will be there again July 11-18, 2015, conducting a VBS, participating in construction projects and connecting with the Costa Rican people. The construction project is a new addition to this year’s trip, so those of you good with a wheel barrel and shovel, this may be the trip for you.

If you want to learn about this amazing opportunity, Alex will be conducting the same informational meeting twice in November. Both Sunday, November 2 and 9, there will be a meeting at 10:10 a.m. in the “Living Room” at CIL. Pick either meeting, and learn the details of this life-changing trip. If you are even slightly interested in this trip, I encourage you to attend this information meeting and discover what a great opportunity this is for you!
