Trinity Sunday/ First Sunday After Pentecost. Happy Father’s Day to all our members and friends! Bill Studham brought the morning message. Diane Bell was organist, Fred Brown was projectionist, Katelyn and Levi Reichman served as acolytes. Receiving the morning tithes and offerings were Kelly Reichman and Vic Johnson. Special music was shared by Lance Burnett. Sherri Hinde was liturgist and shared from the books of Psalms 8, Proverbs 8, Romans 5 and John 16. Holy God, You have poured out so much for us- the beauty of the world, the care of family and friends, meaningful labor, and the gift of Your church. We give You thanks for these and many other gifts. Most especially, we thank You for pouring Your love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. May Your love continue to spill over in glad abundance that brings relief, renewal, and hope to those in need. Amen.

Julesburg Christian Church
Worship service at Julesburg Christian Church was at 10:30 am on June 16, 2019 with the call to worship by Steve Henni. Alan Harris, Steve Henni, Diane Henni and Dakotah Tucker were the worship team. Jan Benson played the piano and Caleb Benson and Chase Graham served on the sound board.
Pastor Alan Harris preached from John 5. For many years Bill Wilson has served the children of New York City by driving the bus to pick up the children for his church. He has been serving the Lord for many decades and loves New York City, even though he has been shot and seen many murders. When asked about his service to the Lord, he is very humble about it.
Jesus says that the scriptures testify of Me. We are instructed to search the scriptures. We wrongly think that our eternal life is in the scriptures. Our eternal life is in accepting Jesus Christ as our savior. The scriptures are about Jesus.
Not so long ago alcohol was a bad thing to have around family events. Now people argue about drinking whether it is good or not. The scriptures are pretty clear about staying away from it. Most public events now serve alcohol.
When we accept Jesus we are changed. We need to read the word of God to know the promises and words of God. If our bible shows wear, it means we are benefiting from the use.
The world says there are many ways to God the Father. The bible says you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. The truth is that there is only way to God the Father and that is Jesus Christ. Are you ready for the truth?

Pastor Kristie’s Father’s Day message June 16 was “Family Matters.” Scriptures were 2 Samuel 3:2-5; 15:30; Luke 7:18-20.
David had eight wives whom he saw as trophies and children with them all. He had concubines as well and children by most of them. A great king, he cared more for his army and the people he ruled over than for his children and family. In 2 Samuel 15:30, shoulders slumped with his head hanging down, he shuffles along the path from Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives. Absalom, his son and now king, has had it with his father and banished him to the desert. David had spent his fatherhood too busy, too important, and too guilty to be any kind of example for his children.
Being a solid family matters. Parents who care and show their love for their children are priceless. Children spell love T-I-M-E. The sanctity of marriage is a real and valuable thing. When a couple is married, they are to honor and value each other. David missed this – his greatest failure.
Being a great dad isn’t easy. But being a father is more important in the formative years of a child than being a friend. Laying out boundaries and setting rules is what parents do and they are not to go soft when those “puppy-dog” eyes look up and the voice behind those cute little eyes is more demanding than sweet. Consistency is more important than the consequence itself.
When there’s a conundrum in your midst as to how to handle a situation, whether with your children or with your friends, tell the Father your concerns and be willing to listen to His response.
We will have a brunch following church service June 23 as we say goodbye to Pastor Kristie and Steve and wish them the best.

Pastor Christensen’s message on The Holy Trinity Sunday was taken from John 8:48-59.
The Lord alone possesses all eternal wisdom even before the acts of creation. The words of Proverbs confirm Jesus’ active presence before the incarnation. Then Peter exclaims that this very same Jesus-crucified and killed- could never be bound by death. Everything about Christ is forever; His Word, His Truth, His Salvation, His immutable relationship with God the Father. As believers, we hold steadfast to everything about Christ, knowing that He alone knows the Father, keeps His Word, and conquers death.

The Joy Mission
The Joy Mission, Third & Maple Streets, Julesburg, CO offers a Prayer for the Week:
Heavenly Father of fathers, we thank You, today, for our Dads! Only You could create such a mentor and friend who receives from our hands, ties that light up, soap on a rope or a new screw driver with such joy and dignity. And so we are blessed for generations to come by pictures of these festive moments!
We are grateful also, Father, for our Dads who guide us through the hazy mazes of childhood and puberty into adulthood, enabling us to become a father, ourselves. We are blessed by the godly example You set before us in our fathers, Dads, uncles, and big brothers. We know that their wisdom, experience and tutelage has crafted our person, and personality, into who we are, today.
We are grateful for the fathers You have put in our churches as pastors, our schools as teachers and principals, our government as Founding Fathers, ‘County and City Dads’, and State Officials. We lift them up to You for seeing eyes, hearing ears, understanding hearts and wise decisions. Crowd them close to You, Father, help them to lean on Your knowledge, wisdom, discernment and justice as they govern we, the people.
Bless and preserve our Dads in business, teaching us honest trading, in law enforcement, EMT or firefighting, keeping order and safety. Shine your light of truth on Dads in entertainment and journalism. Many thanks, Father, for our farming Dads who provide food for the world. Prosper them, keep them in health. Give them new, fresh, innovative ideas and plans for our future and the future of this nation. We pray in Jesus’ Name, AMEN.

On 6/16/19 Pastor Larry spoke on The Gifts of the Spirit and The Fruits of the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:1-11 Every person who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior is given at least one Spiritual Gift. There are a number of Spiritual Gifts given by God. But they are given for a specific purpose and that is for the edification of the Church body, local and world wide. Most spiritual gifts such as the ability to have a deeper urgency to give, or an greater than average ability to teach God’s word, or an intense urge to tell others about Jesus, are able to be used in numerous ways, but they are to make sure the church body is given all they need to serve the church the believer attends and to help that church to be fruitful and to minister to the community around them. Sometimes spiritual gifts change due to a need in the body, but many stay the same. Some spiritual gifts are obvious, others, such as service may be done when no one is around, such as bookkeeping, or cleaning, or witnessing to the homeless, or comforting discouraged shut-ins. No one has no gift. If you are a Christian and don’t know yours, maybe you need to ask your close friends in Christ. They may know better than you!
“The fruits of the Holy Spirit” are something different. Those are the quality of general Godly living that all Christians should exhibit and if we are not, we need to ask God to show us areas we are harboring anger or selfishness, or have some deep hurt we have not allowed God to help us to heal. The Fruits of the Spirit are found in Galatians 5:22 and 23: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. Though we are not perfect and none of us have all of these qualities one hundred percent of the the time, as Christians, we should have them more often than not. Again, ask a Christian loved one to be honest and tell you if they see those traits in you. God wants to help you to work though any things that you struggle with. He is faithful.
