Im sick of my church, and then how I scowled.
The members unfriendly, the sermons too long;
In fact, it seems that everything’s wrong.
I don’t like the singing; the church a disgrace
For signs of neglect are all over the place.
I’ll quit going there, and wont give a dime;
I can make better use of my money and time
Then my conscience sez to me, sez he
The trouble with you is, youre blind to see
That your church reflects you, whatever it be
Now come, pray and serve cheerfully
Stop all your faultfinding and boost it up strong;
You’ll find you’ll be happy and proud to belong
Be friendly, be willing and sing as you work
For churches are not built by members who shirk.

People are blaming heredity, environment, job pressures, poverty, prejudices, abuse, & anything else they can think of for their problems today. But the Bible very clearly teaches that we’re responsible for our choices. (Powerpoints available - #119)

This sermon is about the relationship we have with God as His children and considers both our privileges as well as our responsibilities.

I’m glad there’s a Father’s Day. Even though it isn’t as significant as Mother’s Day, it still gives us a chance to honor those who stand at the helm & who lead their family through life’s battles. (Powerpoint Available - #234)
