The Inescapable Presence and Product of Trials – October, 2017 Shepherd’s Corner

by sccadmin

 Therefore when we could bear it no longer, we were willing to be left behind at Athens alone, 2 and we sent Timothy, our brother and God’s coworker in the gospel of Christ, to establish and exhort you in your faith, 3 that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are destined for this. 4 For when we were with […]

Barnabas, Son of Encouragement

by sccadmin

We have been learning of the early church in our studies in the Book of Acts. We can learn much from Barnabas, a great man of God. Though not mentioned much compared to others he was instrumental in the spread of the gospel during the first century of the church. Barnabas is a great example […]

Giving Our Best – Shepherd’s Corner, February 2017

by sccadmin

Returning from Arkansas, we were scanning the radio for some good music or a sermon to listen to. We heard a pastor talking about how God wants us to give our best and it took faith to do so. Unfortunately, I do not know his Biblical text because that was all I heard due to […]

Seek The Best Presence This Christmas – Shepherd’s Corner December 2016

by sccadmin

While approaching yet another Christmas season we need to focus more on the Reason for the Season and less about materialism.  It is time to concentrate on Christ in Christmas and less on the gift giving and receiving.  God wants us to enjoy holidays and have traditions, but also to remember the reason Jesus came to earth […]

Traits of a Christian – Shepherd’s Corner, March 2016

by sccadmin

In John’s first letter his overall theme is “the basics of the Christian life.” He expresses the character of Christianity in very simple terms. In reading this book I see three traits that he reveals as being basics of a spirit filled life. John begins the epistle by telling us his purpose for writing it; […]

Changing Seasons – Shepherd’s Corner February 2016

by sccadmin

Us “New Englanders” have a wonderful opportunity to see nature at its best. The four seasons we get to enjoy are really a true blessing! Summer brings warm weather, green trees and grass, cookouts, and abundant life! We witness the beauty of autumn with its vibrant colors of reds, oranges, and yellows, along with jumping […]

Staying In God’s Word For 2016 – January Shepherd’s Corner

by sccadmin

  The Church at Spruce Creek heard a sermon last month by Steve Jackson concerning how Americans are so easily distracted by the many electronic devises that we have and use daily. It doesn’t even have to be an electronic device as it could be anything that keeps us from the word of God. When […]
