ALL REGULAR MONTHLY MEETINGS OF MEN FOR CHRIST HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2020. The Executive Committee continues to meet via Zoom to conduct essential business.
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Hope to find you all well. I would like to take a look at II John 4-6:
“It has given me great joy to
find some of your children
walking in the truth, just as
the Father commanded us.
And now, dear lady, I am
not writing you a new com-
mand but one we have had
from the beginning. I ask that
we love one another. And
this is love: that we walk in
obedience to His commands.
As you have heard from the beginning, His command is
that you walk in love.”
As we look around today, we see so much hate and hostility. There is so much anger and division every time you turn on the media outlets. Satan is a master craftsman at disguising his agenda and his plans. Satan actively seeks us. He works to deceive us and toils to dishearten us to think there is no hope. He puts selfish desires and uses the words I and Me to put a wedge between people. He glorifies and disguises evil actions as just and righteous.
We, as Christian men must be prepared and know that as Satan is working his deceit, our God is planning our salvation
and homecoming! As we see these things unfold, we are to operate out of love and obedience to Christ. Understand that what is happening before us is nothing that the Bible hasn’t already said would happen. II Timothy 3:1-5 is an example. So, we need to be grounded in the Word and know that Christ loved us so much that He does not want one to perish. Be safe and love one another.
Yours in Christ, J.R.
Even though not meeting monthly, it is still necessary for us to choose officers and directors for the next term. Normally conducted at the November meeting, this year’s election will be by ballot sent to all men who receive The Builder either by email or regular mail.

OUR PRAYER TIME
“For our prayer time to combat anxiety and stress, we have to take the time to memorize and meditate on the scripture more than once.” (Dale McCamish, Wilmington Ohio Church of Christ and a Timothy of First Christian in Elizabethtown)
“You are where you are to help others where they are. The reason our hands are where they are in this world is to give other people in this world a hand.” (Ann Voskamp)
JOHN 3:36 NLT
“And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.”
“There are only two kinds of people in the end . . . Those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done’ and those to whom God says, in the end ‘Thy will be done.’ “All that are in Hell choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell.” (C.S. Lewis)
Human history is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.” (C.S. Lewis)
“My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.” (Abraham Lincoln)
“The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God you fear everything else.” (Oswald Chambers)
