Ways You Can Prepare for Sunday Morning Worship

It's Thursday... Sunday morning is probably far from your mind at the moment. But this past Sunday, Andy Lackey, challenged us to prepare for Sunday morning throughout the week. How can we do this? 1. Prepare physically by getting rest Saturday night and coming to church refreshed. 2. Prepare for worship by reading the scripture that will be covered and listening to the songs. Our church newsletter is emailed out on Thursdays, so you can see the listings of the verses and...

Sharing the Load

The passage we studied this week in Exodus wasn’t the most exciting, but it still had something to say to us. In Exodus 18, we see administrative logistics. Moses was trying to handle all government dealings for 600,000 men (equivalent to Iredell and 10 surrounding counties). He was getting worn out!  Jethro, Moses’s father-in-law, speaks with him about his duties. Basically, he confronts Moses and tells him what he is trying to do is not very smart. It’s not good for...

From Grace to Grumbling

Oh how quickly we forget God’s provision and go from grace to grumbling. The Israelites had just seen God part the Red Sea and deliver them from their enemy! After this miracle, instead of going straight to the Promised Land, God led them straight to the wilderness. The natural tendency of the people of Israel is like our own tendency to go from grace to grumbling. It only takes the Israelites 3 days to change their perspective. This is how quickly our worship can fade. It’s easy... Read More

Exodus 15: I Am The Lord

We continued our study through Exodus Sunday in Exodus 15, right after the parting of the Red Sea. When the Israelites are safe on the other side and their enemy is defeated, they all celebrate with song. In church it is common for us to all stand and sing in unison, but really, where else do you do that? It's a pretty unique thing. We are to gather together to sing and it's a way for us to respond to his deliverance with song. Salvation demands a response from those who are saved. We... Read More

Hospitality

4 Reasons Why Biblical Hospitality is Necessary at WABC: 1. It's an important issue in the scriptures. Romans 12:13, Hebrews 13. It's hard work, it's uncomfortable and it's out of our comfort zone, but we are called to hospitality. Christian pastors and elders are called to have an open home. It was important to Christ, so it's important to us.  2. We were once in need of hospitality. We are to welcome others as Christ welcomed us. Treat people as you want to... Read More
