As I’ve been reflecting on Paul’s admonition to clean out our old leaven so that we may be a new lump.   Three areas of great thankfulness welled up in me that I want to share with you.  First I’m thankful that Jesus involves me in asking for His everyday provision of bread in the Lord’s prayer (Matthew 6:11).  I have a great heavenly Father that delights in giving good gifts to me everyday.  Second, I’m thankful that Jesus satisfies me to feast in His enriching provision of bread from heaven in John 6:35-40.  He fully satisfies my hunger and thirst.  And finally, I’m thankful that Jesus encourages me to enjoy His eternal provision of being raised up on the last day.  I need no filler or yeast or puffed up arrogance added to my everyday satisfying, and enjoyable connection with Christ.  Indeed, it feels so good to be a lump in the Master’s hand, I’m beginning to get very jealous about anything that even hints at disrupting, degrading, or damning up  the flowing of His Spirit in my life.  I invite you to join me in the fellowship of lumps for the Lord.    

Please take some time to check out the doctrinal and directional statements of Faith Christian Church on the links below.  You can learn the most recent developments in our relocation process in the relocation of the Church notes.  All the schedules for the worship team, the janitorial, fellowship meal, nursery and children’s church are posted below for the active participants in our congregation.  Various opportunities for growing in your relationship with God are posted under the Opportunities for Faith link.  You can view or print out a Sunday Bulletin each week should you happen to miss a service or want to see what is ahead for our time of corporate worship..  Finally, you can look over the most recent calendar of events above.

 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, but on the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses; for whoever eats anything leavened from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel. On the first day you shall have a holy assembly, and another holy assembly on the seventh day; no work at all shall be done on them, except what must be eaten by every person, that alone may be prepared by you. You shall also observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this very day I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt; therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as a permanent ordinance.

Exodus 12:15-17

On Sunday the 2nd of November we will be celebrating the pure life God has called us to live by His Spirit.  We will cheer the apostle Paul on as He instructs the Church to purge itself of every tint of immorality no matter how isolated or seemingly insignificant.  The Church is to be preparing herself as a pure bride that is awaiting her groom, the Lord Jesus Christ, to return to take her home.  Practical instruction of how to rid sin in the Church is outlined in 1 Corinthians 5.   

On Sunday the 9th of November we will look at the third sinful thing the Church in Corinth faced.  The sin of brother going to court with brother  is found in I Corinthians 6:1-11  We will be challenged to embrace all the riches we have in Christ as we let go of our human rights over others.
