Theme: Freedom





Lee Greenwood sings for many of us when he croons… “I’m Proud to be an American:”
If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life, And I had to start again With just my children and my wife, I’d thank my lucky stars To be livin’ here today ‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom And they can’t take that away. And I’m proud to be an American Where at least I know I’m free And I won’t forget the men who died Who gave that right to me… And I gladly stand up Next to you and defend her still today ‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land… God Bless the U.S.A.!!

I want to use America as an acrostic and have each letter stand for a quality I love about this: Home of the Free and the Land of the Brave. A- APPRECIATION for democracy…consider Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. M- MISSION “Liberty and Justice for ALL.” E- EDUCATION In America, we have a defined commitment to public education…an education for ALL its citizens. R- RELIGION In America, we guarantee a diversity of religion…a religious pluralism, not just a Christian pluralism. I- INITIATIVE People need initiative to succeed. We don’t want an America where we can sit back and have the government take care of us, unless it is absolutely necessary. C- CHARACTER America is blessed to have so many persons of character…our symbol is the Statue of Liberty… ”Send me your poor…Send me your hungry…” A- ATTITUDE America has always demonstrated a “can do” attitude. Attitude is probably the most important quality that you can have! This July 4th, let’s sing with Lee Greenwood… “I’m Proud To Be An American!”

Memorial Day Service Sunday morning worship continued on May 27 with a memorial service at Chapel Hill cemetery to honor all of the veterans buried there. Randy Beichley read a “Memorial Day Proclamation,” and a poem, “Freedom Isn’t Free,” was read by Claire Handorf. The group sang “Battle Hymn of the Republic” with Susan Beichley’s flute accompaniment. The reading of the deceased veterans was read by Randy Beichley while family members or children distributed the flowers on the graves. Pastor Dean gave the benediction, and Marvalyn Kelly played “Taps.” This annual remembrance reminds us of the sacrifices and
contributions soldiers made to protect us and preserve our freedoms.

ello Chapel Church! For an update on SNCAL it has been going well. We start the night by hanging out usually playing ping pong, bag toss, ladder golf, and then we end up playing some sand volleyball games. After this we head inside, eat some food, and then have a devotion. The last devotion was about, “How do you know if God is speaking to you?” So I will break it down and tell you what we went over. There are so many ways that God speaks to us, and I had a list of seven ways that we talked about. These are just seven ways that I thought of; don’t get me wrong these are not the only ways that God speaks to us! The list goes: 1.! Still small voice. (the voice that you talk to yourself with) 2.! Prophetically (visions, words from God, and imagination) 3.! Dreams 4.! Movies, Creation, and Life Situations 5.! The Bible, as well as other Books 6.! Pastors 7.! People So these are ways God can speak to us. Now how do we know if it is God speaking or not? For this question I have three different ways to check if it is God: 1. Does it line up with Scripture? If it goes against God’s word (the Bible), then it isn’t God that you are hearing from. 2. If it doesn’t leave you. 1 Samuel 3: 4-10 (4 Then the Lord


am; you called me.” But Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.” So he went and lay down. 6 Again the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.” “My son,” Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.” 7 Now Samuel did

So this was our devotion on June 9th for SNCAL. After the devotion we hung out, and some stayed a while longer and watched a movie. Next week we will be breaking down God’s story from creation to the New Covenant. -Jay

We want to Lord was calling the boy. include everyone who is Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, interested.  We would love to ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant have you as members! is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place. 10 The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel! ” Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”) If something keeps being brought back to you, even after dismissing it multiple times, it very well could be God. 3. If it builds you up or convicts you. 1 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.” Convicts would mean it reveals to you that something you have been doing is not what God wants you to do. Builds you up means makes you feel confirmed that you are loved and valuable to God.
