Text Box: First Chance Camp  (Postponed until Phase 4 Weekend Retreat)
Young At Heart Camp				Sept 9-12

           Welcome To Our Church Service Here at

Shelton Christian Church! 

           We will have an FM transmitter to broadcast into the parking lot for those who want to be part of this but are not ready to enter the building. It is on 95.5.  FYI, there will be no Sunday School, Children’s Church or Nursery.  However the nursery will be open for kids who need changed or are getting fussy and need a place to hang out. And like always, we post the service on the church website later on Sunday.

 

           Will you do us a favor please? If you know someone who is not on Facebook, or gets email can you let them know what is up? We will do our best to get the word out but if everyone helps more people will know.  Thanks.

 

           Lastly, thanks so much for remembering our church. We have been able to operate here and pay the bills. There are several options, like mail a check, online bill pay at your banking institution or stop by the office. Call to make sure we are here. Today you may put your offering in the box as you enter the sanctuary.  We have a donation link on our website as well. Check it out.

Watch Out!

 

 

Text: Matthew 23   

Big Idea: As we look at what Jesus says about and to the Pharisees and Teachers of the Law, we can glean some important warning for ourselves.

 

I.   Warning, watch out for ____________.

 

A.   Do what you ____________.

B.   Don’t be ____________or arrogant.

C.   Take care of the ____________and the rest will follow.

 

II.  Warning, don’t be ____________to whom and what you are.

A.   Don’t try to make others like ____________.

B.   Keep your ____________, forget loopholes.

C.   Pay attention to the ____________important things.

D.   Take an ____________look at your heart.

E.   Take care not to ____________ God’s messengers.

 

III.  Come to ____________.

A.   Jesus so wants to ____________us to himself.

B.   He uses the hen and chick ____________.

C. Refusal will prove deadly, and ____________.

 

Challenge: Whenever I read these condemnations and warnings I am challenged. It is so easy to become self-important. It is a danger of our world view. It is easy to become self-reliant thinking we need nothing. It is too easy to become judgmental, using ourselves as the standard of judgment. Jesus calls us to a different scale, his scale.
