BCF Praise Report 2/15/10

"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God"

Ephesians 5:1-2

Greetings BCF Family & Friends!

We're so grateful that the snow has cleared up enough that we were able to gather for worship service at Tyco Park yesterday. Lauren and Melissa led us in worship and Josh Weiberg preached a powerful message about what it actually means to be a Christian. We will have his sermon posted on podcast before too long and you'll be able to listen to it, you should! Did you know that just because you may go to church on Sunday doesn't mean that you are a Christian? Perhaps some of you are under that impression, but it is certainly not true. Being a Christian means to be a FOLLOWER of Jesus and to pattern your life exactly after His- and not just one day a week, but 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! THAT's the pattern He modeled and gave us the command to imitate Him under!

Our culture is desperately searching for a God that is REAL and who demonstrates His real-ness through signs and wonders and MIRACLES coming forth at the hands of His disciples! So as we go forth into this week- be Christ-conscious! Be mindful of who and what you represent, and remember that the way we treat others will certainly be how others treat us! Let's re-commit to being "imitators of God, as dearly loved children of God!"

We want to remind everyone that BCF will be hosting our "Spring Spiritual Energizer Weekend" Fri-Sun, March 19th-21st, 2010!!! It's going to be an empowering weekend with great worship, great special music ministry, and power-packed, energizing preaching of God's WONDERFUL Word! We will also be having a Saturday afternoon workshop by Brenda & Jim Johnson (StraightNotNarrow.org) entitled "Going Deeper: Further Healing for Damaged Emotions." This is a deliverance weekend and an EMPOWERING gathering for all of us. If you are able and would like to come to DC for this gathering and need housing, please let us know- but otherwise we HOPE AND ENCOURAGE YOU to join us live and together online as we uStream broadcast the entire weekend. The Cyber Church is gathering and the Lord will be sending out streams of Living Water all over the earth and into the dry places!! So please mark your calendar and join us- AND TELL OTHERS ABOUT THE EVENT, too! Praise God!

Have a most blessed and wonderful week in the Lord. We are praying for you and always loving you in the Lord Jesus.

Shalom and in Christ's love,
Ap Dale
