Carbon United Methodist Church

Memorial Day is over. But remembering our fallen soldiers should never be over. I just received an e-mail about a family flying home on a plane that was carrying their son who had been killed.

The pilot, on learning about the family, called ahead and arranged for an escort to meet the family and take them to where they could watch their son's casket being off loaded from the plane.

The pilot requested the other passengers to remain seated to allow the family to disembark first. The passengers not only did that, but they began to clap and tell them how proud they were of their son. That kind of e-mail is good. The conflict over there has gone on so long that we tend to push it into the background and go on about our daily lives without thinking about our sons and daughters risking their lives over there every day. Let's keep Memorial Day alive every day until this nasty war is over.

Sunday, the youth group is providing a meal for their parents at the church at 5 p.m. They are working hard on it and I hope there is a good turnout

Sunday, June 13, will be our Bible Study Sunday. We will meet for a quick soup-and-sandwich lunch right after church and then get into the Bible Study.

Saturday, June 19, will be the day for our fourth Fun Day at the Park. Everyone in Carbon is invited. There will be the annual basketball tournament, games for the children, fellowship for the folks too "old" for the games, and plenty of food. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy the evening. Things will start about 4 and be over about 6 p.m.

The monthly board meeting will be Monday, June 21, at 7 p.m.

The days are long now. June 21 will be the longest day of the year. We all have more daylight to use. Use some your time to thank God for all your blessings. Come to church. Worship is at 10:30 a.m.

Eastside Christian Church

First of all we want to thank Millie and Ann for their beautiful playing of the patriotic songs.They were done beautifully. What a blessing it was to have so many with us on a holiday weekend. And we also want to thank Ron for stepping in for Dave again. Our prayers are with Dave. It was good to see the Barringtons with us. Also, it was good to see Kale Eaglin, who was on leave from the military. We especially want to thank him for giving his time to protect our country. We want to pray for him and all the other military men and women.

We also want to pray for Martha Sutherlin, who is having medical difficulties. We have a praise report for Tim Callahan. His procedure went well, and he is recovering nicely.

We have recently been informed that Bonnie Day has moved out of town to be with another family member. We want Bonnie to know that she will be missed and hope that she will keep in touch with us.

VBS starts Monday evening at 6:30 p.m. We pray that we will see you or your children that evening. A great time is planned and don't want any child to miss out on the fun to be had.

Next week is also Angel Food ordering time again. Our orders have been down some, so please don't forget to order. Someone will be at the church on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 4-6 p.m., to take your orders. If you need a menu, please let Lorie, 765-672-6363, or Sharon, 448-1030, know, and they will get one to you. You may also look it up online. With it being grilling season, there are special packages for this. This is a great ministry, and we would not want to lose it.

If you have ever had questions about Heaven, you need to attend Pastor Bill's Sunday School class at 9:30 a.m.

We hope our members have marked their calendars for the Sunday of June 27. There will be a congregational meeting after the worship service.

If you or anyone you know needs prayer, please let us know. We are a church that believes in the power of prayer.

We look forward to seeing you with us tomorrow. None of us know how long we will be on this earth, so we all need to make arrangements to make sure we have a place in Heaven.

Otter Creek Christian Church

Wow, June is here, praise the Lord for another month to give Thanks for. God is so good to us Psalm 103: 1-2 says it all "Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul; and forget not all his benefits."

Don't forget to give God Thanks and praise Him for everything He has done for us.

This week I was reminded that we should cry at a birth and rejoice at a death. I guess I needed to hear that since this week we lost my childhood friend (since 7th grade) Barbara Burger, she'd been ill for quite sometime but everytime I'd call she'd try not to let me know how bad she felt. That was on Saturday and then on Monday, May 31, Pastor Tom Trotter, went home to be with the LORD. Our deepest condolences goes out to both families but we should rejoice that they are neither in any more pain.

We all have the memories God has allowed us to acquire from such good friends. They would both tell you to count your blessings and give God the glory for the good and the bad in life. If we didn't have any trials we wouldn't know what glory He has given us.

Otter Creek Christian Church will be enjoying the music of Souther Gospel artist Terry Hall on Friday, June 11 beginning at 6 p.m. There will be a time of fellowship and snacks will be served following the sing.

Community Missionary Church

Pastor Ken Thomas opened the services with prayer for the sick, shut-ins, spoken and unspoken requests, and our military in harms way, remembering those whom gave their life in the service of their country. Carol Vanatti led the congregation in songs of praise. Sandra Jenkins sang the special "Even in the Valley."

Pastor Thomas asked, how long does a person have to be without God, before they understand that God will still accept them if they truely repent and believe? If they but sincerely ask and believe. God understands your hurts, your every action, reaction, and he allows some people to become Christians. There are also pretenders that just go see the influence of dark forces at work.

Pastor Thomas said that he notes two roles as "good" and "evil." That war is going on continually even with us. God allows some people to be martyrs for Christiandom. That war between good and evil works in many ways. As evil forces bring up different things to take place during time of church services and they are man and widely accepted by people due to time, space, and every excuse under the sun. Even to those whom would bar prayer in our schools and other functions. There are those noted as Christians that protest at funerals saying that loved ones are killed as punishment to America. There are those dark forces that want to take "God Bless" out of our National Anthem, off our coin, and we have those serving the bar association that desire to have crosses and other monuments removed from city, county, state and federal property.

Ask yourself where you stand today. Bless our city, our county, our state and country, and most of all Lord, "Bless our people." Let's remember those that gave their life that we might be free.

Sunday School at 9:30 a.m., Morning Worship at 10:30 a.m., and Evening Service at 6 p.m.
