From the Pastor


While in seminary, I head a fellow seminarian give a sermon entitled, “I am
evangelical, and that’s okay.”  While I don’t remember all of his sermon, I do remember his primary point,  which was that too often we duck behind the fear of being “labeled” evangelical, when in fact that is exactly what we are called to be.  We are called to be “tellers of the Good News.”  In weeks to come, you will hear more of an emphasis on this from sermons as well as from some new ministry ideas.  Are you able to tell people just how much God loves you? I hope so! The Mission Committee is putting more of an emphasis on the “outreach” portion of their role, and has asked Dr. D. to give us a better understand of what evangelism is. 

Blessings,
Rev. Audrey

EVANGELISM IS FOR EVERYONE!
A Word From Dr. D

“Start Spreading the News…...” You might remember those words from a song made famous by Frank Sinatra years ago, but the words really go back centuries before. They are proclaimed in variety of different forms, but meaning the same in both the Old and New Testament, commanding believers to “spread the Good News from God” to others.

It is called Evangelism, but for many Christian Church members it is a word which carries with it fear, believing that is what we pay our Pastors to do. But such a perspective is both unbiblical and unproductive for the up-building and growth of the Church. I have found that many very strong believers who support their Church and are so active within it live in fear of going out and telling others about their beliefs.  They fear that those, with whom they would share the Gospel with outside the Church, will reject them, declaring them religious fanatics.

But true Evangelism is simply “ONE BEGGAR TELLING ANOTHER BGGAR WHERE THERE IS FOOD”!   Spiritual Food!

We evangelize in so many other ways without fear.  Finding a good restaurant, seeing a good movie, bragging about your favorite sports team, inviting another to join a group you are enjoying, and on and on,  --  telling others what you have experienced without fear.
Our Church is so unique in many ways.  While small in number, we are mighty in spirit and love.  You can see that demonstrated every Sunday.  Great music, great preaching, children and youth, worship services filled with enthusiasm and joy, all of which we should be telling others to come and enjoy so they too can feel and experience the Love of God.

Presbyterians have often been referred to as “God’s frozen people” but we are truly “God’s chosen people”, so let’s pray to become defrosted and excited about what God is calling us to do for others.

Westminster Presbyterians, LET’S START SPREADING THE NEWS, THE GOOD, THE GREAT, THE WONDERFUL NEWS ABOUT GOD’S LOVE!!!

CAMP BUC – MAKING MEMORIES FOR A LIFETIME The wilderness comes alive at Camp Buc as youngsters swim, hike, canoe, fish, garden, cook, sing, play and worship. The program leaders and young adult counselors weave Christian faith and practices into each day. Children work and play collaboratively with respect, teamwork and responsibility. With each activity, children are given room to be young in the face of God’s creation, to have a safe place to be themselves, to appreciate beauty and to live in the awe and wonder of childhood. Counselors live with the children and share the love of Christ in their fun-loving guidance. While having relaxed summer fun with friends, children grow in their understanding of stewardship, compassion and community. Camp Buc is definitely the place to make memories for a lifetime. Give your child the opportunity to grow and learn this summer.

Register them for a week at Camp Buc today. Contact LeAnne White at 864-288-5774, Monday –Thursday 9-2 or lwhite@foothillspresbytery.org. To check out the fun of summer camp, and for more info visit www.campbuc.org and watch the Camp Buc Video on the home page.
