What is the Silver Spring Church of Christ?
A better question would be who is the Silver Spring Church of Christ? We are a body of people who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord -- meaning that God lived on earth in the form of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus Christ taught us how to live, died for our sins, rose from the dead (to demonstrate that He really was God) and now sits at the right hand of the Father.
Our congregation consists of people from every race, of many languages and nationalities (about 25 nations represented on a typical Sunday morning!), of all ages, educational levels, marital statuses, and economic levels.
We are all sinners who have thrown ourselves on the grace of God, and we live with a joy and peace because God graciously forgives. God's Holy Spirit lives in us, and changes us from what we should otherwise be without Him.
"Thank you Elders, Deacons and All!"
Adapting to the change of schedule and
address is nothing in compari-son to what the Elders, Deacons and
all who are working hard these weeks, are going through.
We thank the Elders and all the members
of University Park church of Christ for receiving Silver Spring
church of Christ in your building. Not just receiv-ing us; but
adapting to our needs, moving many chairs and other equipment for
our convenience, even scrubbing floors preparing extra classrooms
for us. Thank you very much and may God bless you!
We thank the Elders, Deacons and other members of Silver Spring and
outside brethren, who are carrying the weight and/or accomplishing
every-thing that is needed to have a more efficient parking lot at
Silver Spring. We appreciate your hard work very much!
We thank the Elders, Deacons and all the brethren, who are
contributing to the Mid Atlantic Youth Forum at camp WAMAVA this
weekend. Your labor in the Lord doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for
being a blessing to our youth this way, may God bless you and your
We know that the hard work is done without expecting any kind of
glory from men; but the next verse is so true: “Therefore, my dear
brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give
yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your
labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1Corinthians 15:58)
But for the rest of us who witness their hard work, the next verse
is also true: “Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge
those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who
admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of
their work. Live in peace with each other.” (1Thessalonians 5:12-13)
Let us all work hard serving the Lord. If we do that, He would share
with us higher ministries beside Him.
Matthew 25:23 says: “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and
faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things;
I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your
