See where Lord walked with Moore

DRIPPING SPRINGS — The literal paths on which the Lord Jesus walked hold a fascination that many seek to satisfy by taking Holy Land tours. Others learn about not only the literal, but the spiritual flagstones, capstones, slingshot-stones and cornerstones in studies such as “Walking Where Jesus Walked: Faith Lessons from the Land of the Bible” by Carla Moore. The experienced Holy Land traveler will hold a class for women at 3 p.m. in Rm. 101 of the church building here on Sunday, Nov. 19.

Says Moore, “2000 years ago in Jerusalem, Jesus said that even if His disciples were silent, ‘The very stones would cry out’ with evidence of His glory. The stones still cry out today with Jesus’ message of hope, peace, forgiveness and love.”

NLBM gifts to double on Nov. 14 by Buck Griffith

CORPUS CHRISTI — Fight hunger, support children, improve health, reduce homelessness – right here in the Coastal Bend. You don’t have to live here to donate. You just have to love others as Christ does during the “Coastal Bend Day of Giving.”

During that 24-hour give-fest, people go online to coastalbenddayofgiving.org and donate to the nonprofits who are the first to assist the neediest of our neighbors. This community give-together begins at midnight on Nov. 14 with a minimum gift of only $10.

Friends and donors who give to Family Upreach (dba, NewLife Behavior Ministries) on this day will see the gifts matched by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation up to $17,000. The first $17,000 will be matched but everything contributed will be given to the nonprofit.

NLBM reaches out to those who need help with behavioral improvement. We have developed a Bible-based curriculum that our teachers use for classes in state prisons, county jails, with offenders’ families, with ex-offenders, with those overcoming addictions, and with those who need help meeting life’s challenges. Texas, 43 other states and many foreign countries have approved and use the lessons. In addition, NLBM sponsors community 12-step support groups using the “Christians Against Substance Abuse” course.

This is the third year that NLBM has been listed among the 45 nonprofits benefitting from the event. Last year, we received almost $50,000. Help us go over that this year.

After contributing to NewLife Behavior Ministries, go ahead and donate to some of the other outstanding programs in our community. Visit coastalbenddayofgiving.org to learn more about all the nonprofits. At nlbm.org, learn about how the agency reconciles individuals to God, families and society.

Mushonga, music and harmony at Songfest

SAN ANTONIO – Brethren from across the region will gather to remember the Lord in musical, brotherly, and sisterly harmony beginning at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23. Many will share a home-style meal and then go into the Northside Church of Christ auditorium for the 13th Annual Evening of Spiritual Harmony.

Lynette Kennedy, Coordinator of the San Antonio/Austin Southwestern Christian College Committee, says, “We encourage you to come out and enjoy a spirit-filled evening as we strive to raise the bar on our level of support for SwCC and its students.”

Shane Mushonga, director of admissions for the college and minister at Faith Pointe Church of Christ in Fort Worth, will provide an update on campus developments.  He will also will be the guest speaker on Sunday, Sept. 24, for Northside’s 8:30 and 11:15 a.m. assemblies. Between the two services, young men from the college and from the Northside and the Dellcrest congregations will lead a mid-assembly songfest.

The menu of comfort food on Saturday includes one choice of meat (angus roast beef, glazed ham, or oven-roasted chicken), green beans, and a choice of two additional sides (macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, or sweet potatoes), a roll, and iced tea.   Prepaid tickets for the meal are required. The cost is $12 for ages 13-adult and $7 for children 12 years old and under.  Please make all checks payable to SwCC Fund.  This meal will be available in the upstairs fellowship area and will conclude at 5 p.m.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m. the SwCC Choral Ensemble will kick off the songfest. Joining them in concert will be some enjoyable groups from the past—Sterling, the Hour of Truth Chorus (from Austin), and Poured Out.

New to the line-up this year are the Central Texas Mass Chorus and The Johnson Family of Valdosta, Ga. The three older children in the Johnson Family were recently seen on TV’s Steve Harvey’s “Little Big Shots.”

Although there is no admission charge for the concert, donations will be accepted and are tax deductible as the funds benefit SwCC and its students in the areas of academic support and improvement to student housing.  Immediately after the concert, cookies and lemonade will be served in the downstairs fellowship area.

Northside meets at 19818 U.S. Hwy 281N. For more information about the weekend or to purchase meal tickets, please contact Lynette Kennedy at 210-313-1457, Laura McKnight at 210-337-2044, or David Allen, pulpit minister of the Northside Church of Christ, at 210-494-1907.
