Something’s Coming

#MotivationMondayatCapri

Ray Bradbury’s “Something Evil This Way Comes” is a chilling tale of a traveling carnival’s visit to a small mid west town. Good book, turned into a movie, to give you nightmares. People love to be frightened, but the problem is they don’t realize something evil is always coming this way, waiting, watching, ready to tempt, deceive, destroy. While we don’t like to talk about it, there is spiritual warfare going on around us all the time. But … we have a rescuer, a deliverer, a conqueror! Jesus is Lord, He is our Savior, and at His word the demons flee. Just as the demons fled from the wildly possessed man from the tombs in the Gadarenes 2000 years ago, they flee from Jesus today. They know His power, they know His truth, and they tremble. As a believer, one of the most comforting verses to me is 1 John 4:4. “Greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world.” If Jesus isn’t your Lord and Savior, don’t wait another day! You really don’t want to face what is coming without Him!

Beautiful Feet

#MotivationMondayatCapri

There is good news to tell, and as believers, we have it! Yet many seem to keep it a secret. There is a hurting world that needs to hear our good news. What did the Apostles do with the good news? They went out and told everyone they could and turned the world upside down. Now, we’re not talking about being an evangelist, orating on a soap box, or knocking on 100 doors a day. When the occasion arises, you only need to boldly tell of your love of the Lord and His love for you. You only need to share your personal story, which may be exactly what that person needs to hear. Unless you’re on a hostile mission field, there is little to fear because most people don’t get violent when you gently tell them a love story. As Paul said in Romans, “How can anyone believe in Him who they haven’t heard about and how will they hear about Him unless somebody tells them?” (loose translation) Isiah wrote, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the gospel of peace. Who bring glad tidings of good things.” So, the big question; Are you going to have beautiful feet or what?

Seeking Counsel

#MotivationMondayatCapri

Where do you seek counsel, look for wisdom? I never understood why people would go on a so called spiritual trek to find a half naked guy sitting on a hill in the lotus position to ask for his wisdom. Nothing in that scenario is wicked smaart. When Solomon died and his son Rehoboam became king, he sought counsel on an important matter. He first went to the elders that had counseled his father but he rejected their advice. He then went to the young men he grew up with, heeded their advice, and the nation eventually became split in two because of it. Wise elders or your homies? It takes us all time to admit wisdom comes with age and the wisdom of Godly older people is to be cherished. Need help with a tough decision? Ask a Godly older man or woman but don’t stop there. Check that their advice matches up with God’s word. Simple gauge for wise counsel. If it draws you closer to God – very good. If it draws you away from God – very bad. Here’s a free bit of wise counsel. Spend time alone in His Word, trust in Him and not your own understanding, acknowledge Him in all your ways, and allow Him to direct your path. That from the wisest writer in the Bible!

Women’s Conference

January 19, 2019 proved to be an exciting and energy packed day for the Women’s Ministry at Capri Christian Church. Tammy Trent, the featured guest speaker, also a professional Christian recording artist, song writer, author and a former speaker of the Women of Faithtour…blessed our ladies.

She brought to the stage a contagious energy and joy for God accompanied by her amazing voice the Lord gifted her with. She not only rocked our church with her vocals but also with the beauty of her testimony and her deep love for Jesus who comforted her and strengthened her while coping with being a young widow.

Tammy’s testimony was filled with truths about her walk with the Lord as she opened up and shared her heart about loss, healing and hope giving God all the Glory. Tammy has a unique way of connecting to the audience, making women feel as though she is speaking one on one with them. Within the first 5 minutes of hearing her, you already felt a sisterhood with her.

Those that came said they left feeling uplifted and blessed by hertransparency to share her personal life and to be so “real” about the tragedy thattook her husbands life. Her story and her music was inspiring and touched us all.

It was a fabulous time and is best summed up by some of the attendees below:

From Debbie Haeussler: Best conference ever. I was so blessed by her, her testimony and her singing. I was so pleased to have a few words with her inprivate and I’d go see her again and know of women I’d bring with me.

From Donna Condee: I prayed, I sang (and some danced) I laughed. I was moved to tears! Tammy’s testimony is a message of hope for everyone.

Erika Kozar: I was touched, moved and felt warmth when she spoke.Everyone should hear Tammy speak and sing…you will be uplifted.

Praise Our Lord and Savior for all the amazing things He is doing with this Ministry.

Sincerely, Kris Kugler – Women’s Ministry

Faith Like a Centurion

#MotivationMondayatCapri

Everybody has faith. People have faith in their boats not to sink in the sea, faith in their parachutes to open, faith in ropes not to break while danging off of a cliff, faith in the chair they sit in to hold them up. But how many people have faith like a Centurion? A lethal commander of 100 hard nosed Roman soldiers had enough faith to ask Jesus to come and heal his sick servant and while being humble enough to know he was unworthy to have Jesus come to his home, he still had the overwhelming faith in Jesus that he knew Jesus only had to speak the word from afar and his servant would be healed! We come to God by faith, knowing that without faith it is impossible to please Him. Do you please Him or do you just mouth the words not really expecting anything to happen? We are to be a people of faith, trusting in Him, in His Son, His Word. It’s time for us all to have faith like a Centurion!

Looking For More

#MotivationMondayatCapri
 
 
 
There is a political uproar in this country over the major discrepancy between the rich and the poor. Like this is something new? Throughout history, man’s greed has fueled way too many fires. Look at 1 King’s and how Ahab wanted Naboth’s vineyard. Ahab already had vineyards and he had more of everything he could ever need but he coveted Naboth’s vineyard and wanted to possess it. When Naboth wouldn’t sell it to Ahab, he threw a hissy fit until Jezebel got it for him at the expense of Naboth’s life. There is nothing wrong with being wealthy until your main goal becomes being the wealthiest. Oliver Twist wanting more was a legitimate request. Someone like Warren Buffet wanting more is greed. So the question again rises. Are you working to build treasures in heaven or on earth? Wise is the person that is doing both.

Capri Weekend

Season is off and running again and what a great start we’ve had.  The Capri family has done a great job with inviting neighbors and friends and our attendance numbers are reflecting your work of inviting…711 total this past weekend.
 
 
The last two Sunday’s Pastor Curt has preached two great sermons on Encouragement and Telling the Truth in Love.  Be sure and let him know how much you have enjoyed him and those messages.
 
 
After the 11:15am service our kitchen ministry, under the leading of Cathy McFarland and her awesome crew, served up a fantastic church dinner.  This group of volunteers is a ‘well-oiled machine’.  And the food is just fantastic…it’s hard to beat an all-church dinner with the cooks we have at Capri.
 
Then our choir had it’s kick-off for this season with a Hot Dog & Hee-Haw night.  We had around 37 come out for the event.  We talked about what to expect this season with our concert & Easter Sunday.  This is a wonderful choir family that continues to grow and we would love to have you add to our harmony.
 
 
Keep up the good work everyone!

Help to Soar

#MotivationMondayatCapri

Jesus taught us to love one another. So, what does that entail? Being patient, being kind, not being jealous of someone because they are talented and/or beautiful/handsome. Not being egotistical and thinking of yourself first, being courteous, self sacrificing, not easily irked by others, and only wanting the best for others. If we truly want to be examples of Christ’s love, we need to exhibit all those traits, which will in effect, make us encouragers. You don’t need the gift of encouragement to be an encourager, you only need love. Encourage others in truth, help them to be their best, to learn to soar, and if need be, soar with them. When someone does a good job, tell them. When someone messes up, tell them they’ll do better next time. Let’s be a body of Christians that are known for our love and honest encouragement for one another.
