Hi Folks, I am returning from the mission field.  I am looking for fellowship in Colorado Springs.  Is there anyone?
On September 18, David Anderson posted the following comment on a post that I had made earlier where I mentioned that the culture seems to be invading the church. Specifically I had mentioned the shift of the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. Here are David's remarks...The evidence for the change of the Sabbath to Sunday also looks rather scanty to me. I hope you will share your thoughts in a separate thread here in the discussions.Regardless, God made a special day for our benefit. Why would we not want to pursue such a gift and learn more about it?To your point, culture is indeed dominating the church rather the followers of Jesus being the light of the world and salt of the earth.Let us bo
**Looking for some volunteers ***Church leadersWe are seeking to rotate some worship teams twice a month on Wednesday for an all denomination worship/prayer night. We are a small church plant with a large building in Mechanicville. We have speakers and Bluetooth currently set up for our stage. God has placed this on our hearts for a fall/winter filled with worship and intercession for the return to our first love. Would you lend us your talent? *This won't be able to be done without the body coming to action. Please message us to discuss / call 518-652-2092

Here is a song that was written and performed by a dear friend and bother in Christ, Harold Willison. He went to be with the Lord this year.There is Nothing to Compare
I recently found this site. After reading several posts, I have found the discussions to be both thought-provoking and balanced. I appreciate the wisdom and respect in the conversations that I've read so far. Thank you!I got here after Googling "house churches". I have a keen interest in learning more. A quick bit of info about me might help you understand why. I have attended Reformed churches for much of my 59 years on Earth, although I have also had significant (> one year) experience with Baptists, Assemblies of God, Covenant, Presbyterian, and Calvary Chapel. What I've come to discover is that many of these institutional churches hold up some form of barrier to the unity of the Body

The Spreading Flame, by F.F. Bruce,  page 185: The Growing Day: EpilogueChristianity was organized for catastrophe....The Story of the Christian Church of the first three centuries is largely a commentary on this. In the fiercest of tribulations Christianity proved its capacity for survival, and not for mere survival, but for actual victory. And the victory was won by spiritual weapons alone.

What do you all think about the synagogue of the First Century? It did not originate in the law of God under Moses, nor in the days of the Davidic Kingdom. It probably developed during the Babylonian captivity, when the Jews did not have access to their temple. If someone knows of any command of God to establish the synagogue system, please let me know.Yet, Jesus made a habit, as did many others in Israel in His time, of attending these gatherings.My question is this: if Jesus, Paul and others made use of this form of assembly to spread the Good News of the Kingdom, why would other means of organizing gatherings, as long as they served God's purpose be forbidden?The core teachings of Jesus a

Lately I have been thinking about posting some encouraging words for anyone here that might be discouraged by the state of the church these days. There have been times when I was deeply discouraged and all I could do is hold on to the hope that we would find our place in the Body of Christ.I personally had to come to the place that my first responsibility was to follow Christ and trust He would lead my wife and I. The years I had sat under good teaching and my personal study of God's Word while seeking Him led me back to the simplicity of a relationship with Him. That includes responding to the clear instructions He has already given us.Loving, forgiving, serving others is always an option.
