Last week, Russ Muse taught us from James 5:19-20  which wraps up our series.  Here are some key points:
  • An earthly perspective leads to overwhelm. A heavenly perspective leads to joy and peace. 
  • Meet God in the middle of your trial. 
  • James warns not to be led astray from the truth by false reasoning. 
  • James gives several tangible measures of the depth of our spiritual maturity, including our tongue, anger, bitterness, selfish ambition, and our willingness to serve others. 
  • James emphasized to the believers to remain in Jerusalem until they received the Holy Sprit. This reminds us how much we need the Spirit while experiencing trials. 
  • We are to help people turn away from deceit, regularly proclaiming the gospel. 
  • We are to mature into people of good reputation and full of the Spirit.

Christmas Cards: This is the last week for preparing personalized cards to our gift boxes for Mauldin City Employees this year. Please fill out a card (or two!) at church on Sunday. If you're part of our online family, you can reply to this email to give us a message to transcribe onto a card for you. Please do so ASAP.  The employees have been blessed by the messages God has laid on your heart in the past, so please be praying about what to write.

Bring Your Own Lunch - Gift Packaging:  we invite those who plan to stay to help pack the Mauldin employee gifts on Sunday to pack a bag lunch to enjoy together (socially distanced) before we get started.  We'll be setting up in the future "Kid's lobby" toward the front of the building following the service.

A big thanks to all who brought in gifts for the three families at Greenbrier!
The gifts were delivered this week in time to bring a brighter Christmas to the children.

We are grateful to be able to fellowship in person at the current time. Our desire is to continue meeting in person for as long as we can safely do so. As we enter the holiday season, thank you for being respectful to those who may prefer more social distancing, particularly if they are wearing masks and/or yellow or red bracelets. We welcome you to participate online any week you feel it is safer for you to do so.
We are currently meeting in person on Sundays as well as offering live stream here. Details on how we are operating during the COVID-19 situation can be found here.
