Restaurant or a Family Dinner?

The difference between a restaurant & a family dinner is whether or not you do something.

Some people treat church like a restaurant (they walk in, make demands, wait to be served, complain about the service, and leave).  How much better is it when are part of the family (you come early, help set the table, serve others, clean up, and enjoy deep fellowship).

If you just come to church to be served, you’ll always feel like an outsider.  Church Picnic Group Photo - 7.21.2013

Come to church to serve!  Be a part of the family!  Help to make Solid Rock better!

When you serve, you come alive!
Where you serve is family!

I’m grateful for the MANY people who serve @ SR.  Our church is growing larger with people who desire to serve.  I guess that’s why we use the word ‘family.’  I’m so glad to be a pastor such an awesome church!  Let’s keep moving forward!

Serving Jesus with you,
– Pastor Jim Bradford

Penn gets a Bible

I find this amazing. Penn Gillette (of Penn & Teller) is an atheist. After his show, a Christian gave him a Bible. Check out his reaction. This is worth your time. I’m going to pray for Penn.

If you are unfamiliar with the term, to “proselytize” means to share your faith in an attempt to convert someone to your same faith.

He made it clear that he’s still an atheist in another video, but I think he made some strong points. “How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible – and not tell them that.”

a word of encouragement

Pastor Jim Bradford shares a word of encouragement from Hebrews 13:5 & Proverbs 27:17.
