First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 10-2-16

First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 10-2-16
by Martha Pennell,

Presbyterian Ladies Friend X group meets Monday, October 3rd, at 1 pm in the Christian Education building.

Lutheran Church council meets that day at 6:30 pm in the fellowship room. 

Germania Luncheon club meets at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church Wednesday, October 12th, at noon. Pastor Tom Shatto will talk about beekeeping. 

The apostles asked Jesus how they could get more faith (Luke 17: 5-10). J

esus told them a story, and then told them they must act and do their duty. 

As Pastor Tom’s sermon, “Ambassadors for Christ” explains, the apostles needed to be ambassadors for Jesus by living as Christians in the world. 

Doing our duty is how we increase our faith. Pastor Tom told us the first thing we can do is laugh. Jesus came into the world to dispel negative attitudes about life, and laughter is a way to dispel gloom. 

 To listen is the second thing we can do. The world needs listeners and Jesus spent a lot of time listening to people. It means they count. 

Third, be loyal, showing loyalty to the faith in our local church and the church worldwide. Show loyalty by attending worship and participating in meaningful actions such as communion. 

Fourth, love. It is a crucial, supreme virtue of the Christian faith. Show it to the brethren. Love is like “Gorilla glue” between people. Pastor Tom told us to get out there and cultivate. Laugh, listen, be loyal, and love. 

Be ambassadors for Christ, disciples for Jesus, growing in faith!
