The 2018 LTC season is off to a great start! We’ve had over 40 turn in registration forms and several new families joining the effort for LTC. I have to confess, that I still need to turn in my 4 forms, but at least we’ve all got a little time until the due date.

Speaking of due dates, please have your forms completed and turned in by Sunday, October 15. Why do you ask? The more information that our coordinators have the easier it is to plan practices, coaches and all the scripts that will be needed for drama and puppets.  Please have those turned in by that date. William and Angela Clifford have been doing a great job of taking on the work that was passed on from Erick Boggs, and we all can help even more by turning forms in on time.

Why is LTC such a good work? The work of LTC ties in directly with the driving purpose for the Riverchase Children’s Ministry that comes from Deuteronomy 6:6-7, “…these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”  LTC is an opportunity for your family to live what we read in the command God gives the Israelites just before they are about to take the land promised.

LTC is also more than just about going to convention. In fact, you can participate in any of the “pre-convention” events without actually going to Mobile. You have opportunities available such as service projects, teaching bible classes, memorizing scripture, helping with worship service, serving food at Wednesday meals, attending the nursery and many more ways listed on our LTC webpage. LTC is all about training our children to serve Jesus Christ.

If you have questions about the opportunities that exist, please feel free to ask me. I would be more than happy to give your family ideas on how to participate. My hope and prayer is to see all our families actively serving Jesus our King.

 

Provided

And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD." (Job 1:21 ESV) Those words spoken by Job need to be pondered by all of us. We came into this world with nothing...

Some Wisdom for the Day

When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan. (Prov. 29:2 ESV) One's pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor. (Prov. 29:23 ESV) Scoffers set a city aflame, but the wise turn away wrath....

In Him

In Christ we have every spiritual blessing heaven has to offer. It was God’s choice even before he created the world to choose those who are in Christ to be his chosen people. In Christ we are considered holy and blameless before God. In Christ we are adopted as God’s...

It Is Written

It may have been about 2005 when we moved into our current subdivision. Our house was one of the first houses built in our area of the subdivision. I’m not trying to offer that as an excuse for what happened, but then again, I may be. Entering our subdivision the...

Out With the Old, In With the New

A common slogan as we bring to an end the current year and look with anticipation to the coming new year. A slogan good for the passing of a year that is ending, but not good for everything. There is no “new” word of God. There is the word of God. That word is still...

Some Things Change, Some Don’t

We headed South to spend a couple of days with our vacationing grandchildren and their parents. On the way, our GPS kept giving me directions toward our destination. It kept saying, “Go toward Mobile”. It kept pronouncing it “Mo-bull” instead of “Mo-bill”. I wondered...

What’s Your Custom?

What are your habits of life? How would your family describe your customs? Twice in the New Testament the phrase is used, “as was his custom,” in reference to Jesus. In Mark 10:1 it is used to refer to his custom of teaching the people. In Luke 4:16, his going to the...

Follow Me

From time to time I will see trucks with a “Follow Me” sign on their tailgate. As a matter of fact, I followed one just last week who was directing traffic around the construction of a new bridge in our area. I understood where he was leading me. When I see a truck...

Treasure of Truth

The Bible is a vast treasure chest of truth. It is ours for the digging and the searching. Not just in every book or chapter. But in every verse and word of each verse. Consider this verse: Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the...

Choose God in Every Decision

Every day we are forced to make decisions. What will I have for breakfast, what will I wear, how will I act? But how often do we allow God to influence those decisions? It may seem kind of crazy to think about. We may say, “Does God care what I have for breakfast?”...
