2017-10-08 Don’t Dilute God’s Water
Stressed and Distressed? Anxious Anxiety? With all that’s going on in this world today, it’s easy to lose our mind and be paralyzed with fear. That’s part of what’s gone wrong; we have lost our minds (or at least control of them) and given in to emotional response. Over and over this week following the mass shooting in Las Vegas, we have heard various reasons of why this event happened. Politicians immediately started pointing fingers and sharing how much we need new and stricter laws. Law enforcement and profilers have been baffled by the lack of motive or normal reasoning. They haven’t found the letter of confession that answers the WHY?. If there is a link, I suggest we look back to God and the Bible. In the beginning God had only one rule, leave the tree of “knowledge of good and EVIL” alone and live. Adam and Eve ignored God and were banished from their peaceful life. Now, there were consequences, but none so horrendous as what happened when one of their sons killed their other son, his only brother. WHY? Because man now had a knowledge of evil. It didn’t stop there. Genesis 6 records that evil grew until every inclination of their heart was evil all the time. Jesus in Matthew 24:37 said that when He comes back it will be just like in the days of Noah… It’s time that we who claim to believe, begin to obey the one we claim to believe in. Let’s learn from Adam and Eve and trust The Lord has shared with us the “best” way to live. He doesn’t give teachings and commands to hurt us, but to benefit us. We can’t control much at all, but each of us can control Who/what we believe and not water down His warnings or directions.

    2017-10-01 Will the REAL GOSPEL Please Stand Up
    Some think we are going slow through Revelation. Personally, I don’t want to miss ALL JESUS wanted to reveal. Sardis; the church that wasn’t alive and hadn’t completed the deeds they were designed to do, was encouraged to not forget (or remember) what they had received! We know Jesus told His followers to teach others ALL that He had taught them. This message is a look into Jesus’ teaching about ALL the Gospel; the real and total Good news. He did not call us to be His master, but is willing to eternally bless all of us that “call” Him Master. His teachings reflect the understanding of the life that results from Him being Lord of a sold-out life. It is Good News that He died for our sins. That News becomes better yet as we live a life that’s better than good; a Divine Life of victory over sin and self.

    2017-10-01 Get Your Head in the Cloud
    Growing up I often heard the phrase used, "Get your head out of the clouds". It was typically used to say "quit dreaming" or "get real". Granted there are times when we need to be realistic about getting a job done, or homework. Daydreaming or floating on air can interfere with our practical effectiveness. On the other hand, IN CHRIST, we need to get out of our worldly mindset and follow Paul's admonishment in Colossians; set our minds and hearts on things above where Christ is at the right hand of God. The message today is about the Israelites being IN the presence of God, but failing to embrace Him. It's about going with the crowd instead of going with God.

    2017-09-27 The Story Beneath the Headlines
    Most lawyers will tell you it is important to read the fine print. Yet, isn’t it amazing that lawyers write the small print? They know we are so quick to get on with things that we won’t pay attention to details. Like, how many of us know how much freedom we give a corporation when we download a “free” app? Now, I am even more concerned that very few Christians read the fine print. They hear FREE Gospel, but fail to comprehend that someone (Jesus Christ) paid dearly for it. He did make salvation free, but He also compelled His followers to freely share it if they completely accepted it. Matthew writes what Jesus said in MT 10 as He SENT His disciple/followers out to TELL OTHERS. He warned them, but sent them nonetheless. He reminded them in vs. 8; “Freely you have received, freely give.” After accepting the true Gospel of Jesus, we should all begin sharing it. If we don’t share, it probably indicates we didn’t fully receive. How can we receive it and not care that others are going to miss heaven?

    2017-09-13 Don’t Just Read the Headlines of the GOOD NEWS
    News"papers" don't sell as well as they used to prior to the electronic age. Now they're digital. Either way, many people don't really read it; they tend to read the headlines and not the details. That is unless they are passionate, pro or con, about the subject! When we are passionate, we tend to devour all the information we can get. This message is about the Good News, The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many have read the headlines and accept the forgiveness, but they aren't even passionate enough about Jesus, The Savior, to read the details about OUR part in the GOOD NEWS.

Giving

Thank YOU for caring enough to wonder about giving. If you clicked on the tab that brought you here, you are either here by accident or because you have a noble heart and wonder how Branches handles the subject of giving.
 
Our church would not be here without the free will gifts of those that have freely received and freely given back. Ministry at a congregational level does cost, but we don’t charge admission or bill our recipients. Instead, we put our faith in the approach that Jesus Christ and our Father God took; they so loved the world that they gave first, without any promise of what they would get back. Their hope was that their gift would be received without cost, even though it cost them dearly. Many different people have sacrificed/invested their own money into the ministry of Branches with the hope that this church could be here for others like it was for them. These are not financially “well off” people, but everyday people that desired to forgo a variety of worldly things in order to give others a chance to know Christ in a very real way that makes sense without any financial strings attached.
 
In a step of faith, those of us that launched Branches of Christ at the end of 2000, prayed to The Lord about several things. Besides questioning Him if He even needed another church here, we asked that He would provide WITHOUT us passing an offering plate or without saying what several of us had heard our whole church life, “It’s time to TAKE UP our offering”. Knowing that we wanted to reach people that were skeptical about God/church, or had been burnt by churches, we felt that it might be refreshing to just let people give if they wanted to. So we have never passed an offering plate. We don’t have any endowments or trusts. We don’t have any Daddy Big Bucks that make up the difference, and we are not subsidized by anyone. Branches staff, building, furnishings, Live Streaming, and entire ministry are a result of people that made a choice to give to Jesus, by giving to His church, in order to give to people of the world.
 
If you really and freely want to give here are the ways that can be done. For those that attend, there are two mailbox slots built into the side walls of our sound booth. Some give as their initial part of worship as they come in the door; others, in gratitude as they are leaving. Several of our folks give weekly or bimonthly through their “bill-pay” that comes to us in the mail. By request, we have started providing the option of giving using your card and online as well. We are registered as a 501c3 non profit corporation in the state of Georgia and give annual giving statements at the end of the year to those that give and share with a way to identify them. There is no way for us to account for cash given without an envelope.
 
Again, thanks for wondering.
