Cheney Community Church

Cheney Community Church recently honored its high school graduates with a potluck gathering following the morning service.

The AWANA Club wound up its successful year in mid-May with a special awards ceremony. AWANA is an acronym taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth (are) not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (KJV) (Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed)

Awards were given to the children and teens for attendance, scripture memory and completion of workbooks. Leaders were honored for years of club service.

Two teens, Daniel Lambert and Marshall Simons, received the Citation Award which is the highest award given in the AWANA program and reflects the completion of 10 years of work. It is only given to graduating seniors. Some of the award requirements include the completion of all workbooks during the 10 years, reading the Bible through, memorizing numerous scriptures and participation in a service project. We are very proud of these two young men for this accomplishment.

The church women held their monthly brunch on Saturday, June 2. They discussed spiritual gifts. The men will have their breakfast at 8 a.m. this coming Saturday, June 9, at 8 a.m. with a special speaker.

The Youth Group, ‘Holy Flame,’ meets Monday at 6 p.m. for dinner followed by Bible study 6:30 – 8 p.m. All are welcome to worship with us on Sunday at 10 a.m. Bible classes for adults and teens are held at 9:45 a.m. on Sundays.

For your contemplation: “There is no such thing as ‘my’ bread. All bread is ours, and is given to me, to others through me and to me through others. For not only bread but all things necessary for sustenance in this life are given on loan to us with others, and because of others and for others and to others through us.” – Meister Eckhart.

Pastor Alissa Bertsch will lead the worship service this Sunday at the United Methodist Church.
