Series On Devotion

The word “devoted” is a relatively
common word in Scripture. Acts
2:42 reveals that the early believers were “devoted” to the apostles’ doctrine
and to one another.Paul was
“devoted” to preaching (Acts 18:5).
Paul used the word in urging followers to “devote” themselves to prayer
(Colossians 4:2), and to one another (Romans 12:10).  Jesus spoke of the dilemma of being “devoted” to two masters
(Matthew 6:24) and the impossibility of dividing one’s heart. Devotion. The first century believer understood the term and strived
to live that term because nothing less could direct one through times of trial and temptation. Our culture understands this term as
well, because people will find themselves drawn to something or someone who
demands a devotion-like status. In the
next four weeks we will be looking at the description of a devoted follower of
Christ - what it looks like.
Being devoted to Christ has four dimensions we will explore in depth. I’m looking forward to studying with
you and being challenged by God’s Word!

Wide Angle: Framing Your World View

On Sunday March 11, we begin a new study series in the Sunday 9:30 AM class based on the video series Wide Angle: Framing Your World View.

Christian leaders Chuck Colson and Rick Warren have joined together to produce a stimulating new study called Wide Angle: Framing Your Worldview.

Our worldview -the way we look at life-impacts everything we do. The moral choices we make; the way we spend our money; the kind of relationships we have; the priorities we set.

Chinese New Year 2007

On Saturday evening, February 24, we celebrated the Chinese New Year (the year of the pig) with Chinese food, a presentation about Chinese new year traditions, and a performance by a local Chinese orchestra. Thanks to Joe and Lisa Chai for doing such a great job organizing the food and presentation and arranging the musical performance!

There are a bunch of videos in the photo gallery: link. WRCC members, if you're logged in you should be able to upload some of your own photos of the event to the gallery. Here are a couple videos...first, hard at work with the food prep:

Pursue - Overtake - Recover

Ziklag was listed as one of the 29 towns in Negev assigned to the
tribe of Simoen (Joshua 15:31; 19:5).
It was apparently controlled by the Philistines during King Saul’s rule,
and was given to David by King Achish of Gath. David used the town as a home base for raids against various
groups who threatened the southern borders of Judah (I Samuel 27). After being away one time, David
returned to find it ransacked by the Amalekites.

David’s response is a powerful story of reclaiming what was
lost. Often in life we find
ourselves in this situation. What
is God’s take on our situation?
Some interesting principles in the text we’ll examine on Sunday
morning. To know God’s attitude
about our losses is valuable when we seek His direction on how to respond. Have you lost your Ziklag? God has three words for you. Come expecting a blessing!

Amazing Grace: Opinions & Options

This Friday (23rd) the movie, "Amazing Grace" premiers all over the nation.  It is a story of one's man driving passion to eradicate slavery in the British Empire.  The story is a journey of struggle and ultimately victory.  We will have a few clips about the movie during the assembly on Sunday (25th).  

When Abraham Lincoln delivered a speech to the 14th Indiana Regiment in 1865, he said, in part:  "Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."  Nine years earlier, during his annual message to Congress, Lincoln asserted:  "In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom for the free - honorable alkie in what we give and waht we preserve."  In a Birmingham jail in 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote:  "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
