Fellowship of Believers


This past week we were able to meet and greet many of our neighbors for a wonderful time of food, fun and fellowship, as Central Christian’s Fish Fry was a huge success!  We were able to serve over 450 of our neighbors with fish and chicken, music and smiles.  I’m not exactly sure how much money was raised, but that was never the point anyway.  Our goals for the evening was to provide an opportunity to meet and serve our neighbors, provide opportunities for said service to our members, and to enjoy each other in the fellowship of believers throughout the evening as we served others.  In these three categories, the Fish Fry was a huge success!  And I think we raised a good amount of funds at the same time.  Hallelujah!




Text Box: “Do not forsake assembling together…” Hebrews !0The Word of God encourages us to gather together in fellowship opportunities.  In Hebrews 10:24-25 we read,   “…and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”  Because we know that the return of the Lord is drawing near, we need to continue to reach out to our communities and fellowship with one another, keeping ourselves busy in building God’s Kingdom “here on earth as it is in heaven” (Lord’s Prayer). 


In the next few months we will have several opportunities to gather together as a Church family in service and fellowship together.  Some of these events include the Harvest Fall Festival gathering on October 30th, the Christian Women’s Fellowship Lunch and Bizarre sale on November 2nd, the all Church Christmas dinner, kettle ringing, Christmas Eve Watch Night gathering along with regular weekly services in December.  All these opportunities that we might bring others into God’s Kingdom and grow in our own spiritual lives and fellowship with one another.   Let us remember the Apostle John’s strong admonition to the Body of Christ in 1 John 1:5-7, ”This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”


Be blessed even more!!
