Carson City Seventh-day adventist church(Every Member A Minister)
We sincerely welcome you to join us and experience an authentic, growing and vibrant relationship with our God and our Lord Jesus Christ and fulfill His purpose for your life. We invite you to come and connect with the Lord and His body of believers in song, in Scripture and in fellowship; to truly experience what it is like to be growing spiritually in the Lord and be strengthened in faith among His family of believers. We encourage you to come and be involved, be a part of one of our ministries; that you may enrich others with your gifts and your talents; and experience the real joy of ministering to the needs of others just as Christ ministers to each one of us.
We are not an overly large congregation that you would feel lost in the crowd. We are just the size of a large extended family that we know each other's needs and are moved by the Holy Spirit to treat each other with respect, to love one another and bear one another's burdens. Apart from our services within our church family we also maintain and extend our services to the needs of others in the community, as well as our friends and neighbors.
As a community of believers in Jesus Christ awaiting His soon return, we have a burden to bear to the world of the knowledge of the character of God as revealed in the character of Jesus Christ. And we believe it is this knowledge of an all powerful, all loving and selfless God, that will transform and re-create each of us in His image. Until then, when His character is perfectly reproduced in His people, will He come to claim us as His own.
Several years ago a German man took his female neighbor to court, for, of all things, laughing too loud! According to CNN, the unemployed man complained that the 47 year old woman who lives in the Berlin flat above his own, kept him awake with over four hours of loud laughter as she enjoyed a meal with eight of her friends.
I Can't Breathe
We rarely think twice about breathing. We breathe in. We breathe out. Air rushes into our lungs and a quick exchange takes place; oxygen in and nitrogen out. Because this element transaction takes place mindlessly, we live with little concern about breathing but this is not true for everyone. Some folks breathe in and substances like smoke, perfume or dust triggers air passageways to narrow or become blocked.
The White House Garden
When most of us think of the White House in Washington D.C., we often think of their affairs separate from ours. It is rare that our pathways will intersect with a visit to the White House but I had a chance to experience that rare moment.
The First Five Minutes
Staying physically active can help prevent or delay some diseases, like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Exercise can even help people who struggle with depression or low moods.
Reality Check On Hunger
Not too long ago, I went to the grocery store and purchased five small bags of groceries. As I reached for my wallet, the amount popped up on the cash register’s screen, $109.
The Right Direction
Picture yourself lost in a forest. You are alone and desperately want to find your way out. You haven’t a clue which direction to hike, but suddenly you remember a map in your day pack.
