1. Let’s Help the People in Ukraine. Several members have asked if we should be doing something to help the people in Ukraine. My own heart has just been torn over the terrible carnage taking place in that land. I believe there are two opportunities we would recommend.
· Samaritan’s Purse has established a hospital there. We could easily and confidently support them.
· Rev. Fred Humann is a licensed minister with the Missionary Church. He has been working with seminaries and pastors in Ukraine for 10 years. We would confidently support what his ministry is doing, as well.
Please make your checks out to Jubilee, and on the memo line, write in either ‘Samaritan’s Purse’ or ‘Music Works International’. Let’s do our best to have our special gifts in by this Sunday.
2. Movie Night: Next Friday, March 18th at 6 PM. We’ll be showing “Full Count”. This is an excellent movie with a powerful storyline, especially since it now appears there will be a baseball season. Bring snacks to share and invite others to attend.
3. My New Daily Devotional, “Moments with the Lord” was officially released on Monday, March 14th. If interested, you can get it through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Abednego, and Christian Book Distributors.
4. This Sunday I will be teaching “Spiritual Gifts.” I want us to really catch a picture of what Christ wants His church to look like and how it is to function. I hope you can be present.
5. Membership – Are you ready to become a member of Ventura Jubilee Fellowship? We hope you are. If you’re a born-again Christian, then we hope you will pray about affiliating with us. You can pick up membership forms at the Welcome Center or contact the office, and we will mail them to you.
6. Hiding God’s Word in our Hearts. Beginning with this issue of the Weekly, I want to include one or two verses, I would like all of us to memorize. Sometimes they will be verses you already know. This week, I am asking that all of us memorize John 3:16-17 NKJV
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world, through Him might be saved.”
7. Website – For all those with internet access, please make sure you stop by our church website. There’s plenty of information available to you, including updates from our missionaries! (vjf.church)
