We have decided to make a major change to our lineup of services. We are suspending Wednesday night church indefinitely. In the coming weeks, we will begin a transition from a formal service to flexible and more intimate small group meetings to try to facilitate a diverse set of needs in our church.

We could use more help with lawn care. If you are interested in helping out, please sign up or see Tony. The more people we have, the less frequently people have to cut.

Some tweaks to the website www.greenwoodwesleyan.comhave been made. It is now possible to download sermons, bulletins, and PowerPoint presentations, as well as check out the latest photos from our India trip

Psalm 46 l.jpg

Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.


Psalm 4620 l.jpg

Psalm 46

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.


Psalm 4621 l.jpg

Psalm 46

7 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.  8 Come and see the works of the LORD, the desolations he has brought on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear, he burns the shields with fire.


Psalm 4622 l.jpg

Psalm 46

10 "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

11 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

When i survey the wondrous cross l.jpg

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross


Slide43 l.jpg

When I survey the wondrous cross,On which the Prince of glory died,My richest gain I count but loss,And pour contempt on all my pride.


Slide44 l.jpg

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,Save in the death of Christ, my God;All the vain things that charm me most,I sacrifice them to His blood


Slide45 l.jpg

See, from His head, His hands, His feet,Sorrow and love flow mingled down;Did e’re such love and sorrow meet,Or thorns compose so rich a crown?


Slide46 l.jpg

Were the whole realm of nature mine,That were a present far too small;Love so amazing, so divine,Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Today s message 1 corinthians 12 12 31 milestone 2 you like chopping firewood l.jpg

Today’s Message1 Corinthians 12:12-31Milestone #2You Like Chopping Firewood


Fire fire fire l.jpg

Fire! Fire! Fire!

  • Men have on thing in common – we’re pyros!

  • People can do really dumb things with fireworks.

  • It’s hard to burn something when there isn’t something physically present to burn.

  • It’s hard for the Holy Spirit to move when there’s no place for Him to work.


1 corinthians 12 12 31 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

12The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by[a] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.


1 corinthians 12 12 3159 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

14Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 16And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.


1 corinthians 12 12 3160 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

17If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19If they were all one part, where would the body be?


1 corinthians 12 12 3161 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

20As it is, there are many parts, but one body. 21The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" And the head cannot say to the feet, "I don't need you!" 22On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor.


1 corinthians 12 12 3162 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, 24while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.


1 corinthians 12 12 3163 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

26If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.  27Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.


1 corinthians 12 12 3164 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

8And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.


1 corinthians 12 12 3165 l.jpg

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

29Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? 31But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way


This series l.jpg

This Series

  • There are markers on the road to let you know where you are.

  • This series is designed to help you gauge where you are in your faith.

  • Last week – You put your virtue on display to give God glory.

  • This week – You create a unity in the church.


Zooming out l.jpg

Zooming Out

  • A keen observer will notice that this passage said nothing of fire.

  • This is about unity.

  • We have to understand how this passage fits Paul’s overall idea.

  • The church was stifled by divisions.

  • There were behaviors that foiled a genuine moving of the Spirit.

  • The behavior here was creating disunity.


This instance l.jpg

This Instance

  • There are many issues that divided the Corinthians.

  • In this context, the disagreement is over how bestows gifts.

  • Some gifts were treated with more respect than others.

  • People were put in places of honor based on what they could do.


Paul s argument l.jpg

Paul’s Argument

  • There is one God in whose name you were baptized.

  • There is one Spirit who gives gifts as He chooses.

  • All people of God belong to one body and serve unique, specific functions within that body.

  • All people within the body have essential value bestowed upon them by God, and thus, are of equal importance.


Point 5 l.jpg

Point 5

  • Therefore, only when the entire body is functioning as one unit can it ever truly thrive!


What paul knew l.jpg

What Paul Knew

  • We are so much more effective when we are unified.

  • Ever hear the phrase “opposites attract?”

  • When you work together in your marriage, that’s when you thrive.

  • The church is more complex, but the premise is still the same.


Last sunday night l.jpg

Last Sunday Night

  • We discussed Scripture in our study.

  • Rarely in Scripture is the singular ‘you’ used. It’s almost always plural.

  • Preacher’s don’t preach for one person, but rather, the whole church.

  • We discussed the last time the Spirit really moved in the church. Nobody could remember!


Preacher s facepalm l.jpg

Preacher’s Facepalm

  • What this says is that God’s Spirit isn’t moving in a place where it should overflow.

  • We know that God is still bestowing gifts upon us.

  • We know that God is present!

  • He is trying to light sparks all over the place! There’s not really anything to catch it.


God s firewood l.jpg

God’s Firewood

  • The firewood that God uses is the firewood of unity.

  • We’ve talked in the past about the four-fold vision for the church.

  • It takes all of us to pull it off.

  • Perhaps, then, we need to learn what body part we are.


Roles l.jpg

Roles

  • My role is to explain what God is saying to the church.

  • I’m here to help you understand the vision.

  • The entire church then comes up with ways to protect and grow the vision.

  • You role then becomes to use your passions and gifts in a way that will help execute the vision.


Finishing thoughts l.jpg

Finishing Thoughts

  • When the church starts acting on its vision, you’ll see God move.

  • The church must first come together in unity.

  • Start by volunteering for projects we have. Follow up with your passions, gifts, and ideas.

  • God’s here with a lighter in His hand!
