IT’S THE MOST ............ TIME OF THE YEAR

How would you fill in the blank? The song says “wonderful” and “happiest” but others might put in “painful” if they are dealing with the loss of loved ones, especially for the first time. “Difficult” might be another choice if things are tight financially. “Lonely” might be another word for some people.
What can be done by those who are supposed to “Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep”? – Romans 12:15. Here are some suggestions:

To the Rejoicing

♥ Surprise one who is grieving with a gift, a card, a letter, a visit. The whole family can be involved as you make a project thoughtful, memorable, and sacrificial.
♥ Help someone create new memories. Be sensitive to those who may have never known joy at this time of year due to dysfunction in families. Past memories cannot be changed, but new joyful ones can be created.
♥ Don’t forget to thank God for what you have. Cherish the joyful moments while you have them. We live in a fallen world in which sooner or later, we too will have our share of grief and heartache. Christians are not exempted from pain in this life. Don’t take your present joy for granted.

To the Weeping

♥ Don’t give up. Don’t wallow in pity. Fight your pain. Make your choice to control your thoughts. Count your blessings, even in sorrow.
♥ Serve others. See the needs of others. It’s a paradox, but when we share the burdens of others, we find our own load lightened. It is more blessed to give than to receive – Acts 20:35. Remember, we were created for good works – Ephesians 2:10.
♥ Don’t forget to thank God for what you have. This is not said to downplay your hurt and loss, but you are the Lord’s. If you are His, then your blessings far exceed your losses. Remember the Savior who died for you, so that you might live for Him!

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13.

  1. What you can expect when you visit
  2. Our Minister

What you can expect when you visit.

When you visit the Beville Road Church of Christ you will find a congregation of warm, caring and loving Christians. A congregation that loves God and a congregation that is genuinely happy to see visitors. This congregation is autonomous and is under the oversight of elders (pastors, or bishops), with a group of men serving as deacons, and we have a minister (or preacher). All of this follows the teaching of the New Testament and we follow the teachings with special significance paid to the statement "speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent."
 
At the worship services on each and every Sunday, we participate in five different elements of worship: prayer, singing, hearing God's word through a message, participating in the partaking of the Lord's Supper and giving of our means through financial contributions. Please consider the following scriptures in regards to each of the elements of worship.
 
Prayer
Romans 12:12 "Continue steadfastly in prayer"
I Corinthians 7:5 "Give yourselves unto prayer"
 
Singing
Ephesians 5:19 "speaking one to another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord"
Hebrews 2:12 "In the midst of the congregation will I sing Thy praise" ..... more
