Em­manuel Re­formed Church

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - CHURCH LISTINGS -

We warmly in­vite you to wor­ship with us this Sun­day, Nov. 11, start­ing at 10:20 a.m., with our pas­tor Pete Bur­rill bring­ing the mes­sage. When is enough enough? I am not talk­ing about pain and suf­fer­ing be­cause any amount seems too much. I am talk­ing about our ob­ses­sion with ma­te­rial things, with stuff. Re­mem­ber the old ad­ver­tise­ment telling us to “dress for suc­cess?” The idea is to project an image of con­fi­dence and suc­cess and you will get hired, pro­moted, make the sale, and so on. But it has turned into an ob­ses­sion that the Bi­ble calls avarice. We see it in an in­ner at­ti­tude which comes out as “if I only had … then I would be happy/ sat­is­fied/se­cure/the envy of my neigh­bours, and the list goes on and on. Je­sus has some­thing to say about avarice as He con­tin­ues to in­struct us in re­gards to liv­ing our lives as His dis­ci­ples. Let’s find out to­gether since we’re all in this to­gether. See you Sun­day! Join us for a time of cof­fee and fel­low­ship fol­low­ing the ser­vice. Nurs­ery is avail­able for ba­bies, tod­dlers, and two-year-olds. All chil­dren ages three through Grade 4 are wel­come to join us for Sun­day school dur­ing the ser­vice. Check out our new Face­book page www.face­book. com/ em­manuel re formed church/ for events com­ing up.
