options for giving

WAYS TO GIVE...                      
give online-We want to make obedient and cheerful giving as simple and secure as possible. Use the online giving option on this link, the website, or the app to give a one time or recurring gift. You can use a bank account, debit card, or credit card.  Using a bank account incurs the lowest processing fee for the church however, feel free to use the method that is best for you.                           
give in person-We provide offering boxes and envelopes around the auditorium. We do not normally take up an offering during the worship services so feel free to place your gift in an offering box before or after a service. We consider giving as an act of worship according to Scripture so whether you click the submit button or place a gift in the offering box, the Lord knows our hearts as we obey Him.                                
mail a check-You or your bank can write a check and mail your gift to the church office. Many people set up Wiregrass Church as an online bill pay with their bank. The bank mails a check directly to the church office for you.  This option is usually free with your bank and neither you or the church incur processing fees.                         Wiregrass Church                     28125 County Line Rd.

Celebrate Recovery every Monday evening
Expand
Are you struggling with hurts, habits, and hang ups in your life? Maybe it is because of hurt someone else has caused you or hurt you have brought on yourself? CR is a ministry based on the Beatitudes in Matthew 5 to bring real healing whatever the struggle may be in your life. We meet every Monday evening beginning at 6:30 PM with food and coffee. The gathering begins at 7 PM. Childcare is provided.

Freedom
Celebrate Recovery is designed to help people find freedom from hurts, habits and hang-ups including addictions, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. The purpose of the Celebrate Recovery @ Wiregrass ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” This experience allows us to “be changed.”

Growth
We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our life problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.

Healing
As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power. No hurt is beyond healing! No habit is beyond help! No hang-up is beyond hope! Jesus changes everything!

7 questions & 7 Promises for 7 churches:
Jesus Knows…

Churches and individuals may look healthy and wealthy but may be sick and poor according to the standards of Jesus. We must ask Christ the Creator and Owner of everything, including the Church He owns, to examine us individually and collectively.

G. Campbell Morgan-
“It is a very remarkable thing that:
The church of Christ persecuted has been the church of Christ pure.
The church of Christ patronized has been the church of Christ impure.” (always)

Repetition and format in the 7 letters to the 7 churches
1.Written to the “messenger” in each church
2.Description of Jesus applicable to the issues in that church
3.Jesus says, “I know…” reality vs. perception
4.Commendation-if there is one-(zero commendation to Laodicea)
5.Problem…within the church or outside the church
6.Rebuke-if there is one-(no rebuke for for Smyrna and Philadelphia-they had little strength and intense persecution.)
7.Remedy-humility and repentance (except for Smyrna and Philadelphia-already reality)
8.Practical and spiritual next steps
9.To the one who conquers (endures)-promise of victory, gifts, and eternal life
10.The call for each person and each church throughout history to listen and respond.

Do you have an ear to hear and keep what the Spirit is saying?

Ephesus Revelation 2:1-7
Maybe your works, labor, endurance, not tolerating evil in the church, testing false teachers, and right living is strong. As a believer in Jesus, was there a time in my life that my love and abandon for Jesus, His Gospel, and His people was greater than it is now? If so, am I willing to do what I did when that love was new and passionate?
Remember, repent, return or be removed.

Smyrna
What am I willing to suffer for? This will show what I am devoted to-object of affection. Do we pray to protect from suffering or preserve through suffering? (Acts 4)
Be faithful, even to the loss of everything in the world, including our physical life.

Pergamum
What would Jesus point to in my life where compromise is…? Entertainment, ethics, compromise, sexual humor I laugh at or enjoy, time and attention I give to sports, politics, luxury, rest, food, profession.
Repent and receive real sustenance, a righteous stone, and a new name.

Thyatira
Have I been seduced by voices within the church to minimize sexual sin or idolatry what false teaching am I allowing in? What am I willing to tolerate that Jesus would not tolerate in His church?
The church or the media I consume that is destructive to Christ’s bride for patient endurance
Repent if you tolerate sin. Hold on if you are holding to Christ and His commands.

Sardis
Do people around me assume I am more devoted to Jesus than I really am? What needs to change so the reputation lines up with reality? Am I a hypocrite or a humble repenter? Can I be fully awake for patient endurance?

Philadelphia
Do I realize I have little strength on my own? Am I walking through the doors Jesus has opened for me to share the Gospel in His strength no matter what it costs?

Laodicea
Has the deception or seduction of culture or material prosperity or kept me from coming to terms with my true spiritual condition? Am I deceiving myself? Is this church deceiving herself?
(Some questions adapted from Warren Wiersbe and Nancy Guthrie)
Jesus-
I know you. The good. The bad. I know what needs to happen. I know what I am preparing for you. I’m calling each of you to repent, endure, and overcome. Even the dead and lukewarm church that makes me sick I patiently wait for a season and call you and them back to Me.

We can be honest:
1.Sinful habits that have a stronghold
2.Lack of love for him and others
3.Sexual past and past sin that doesn’t need to define or destroy us now or in the future
4.Not bold in witness rather ashamed or afraid
5.Ease of compromise
6.Tolerance for two things-those who don’t tell the truth about Jesus and sin within His church
7.deception, seduction, hypocrisy

More blessing than we can imagine, if we turn and follow Him.
What we receive if we conquer, overcome, endure:
1.Eat from the tree of life in the paradise of God
2.Give the crown of life
3.Hidden manna, white stone, new name
4.Authority over the nations, morning star
5.Dressed in white clothes, never erase name from book of life, acknowledge your name before My Father and His angels
6.Make you a pillar in the temple of my God, never go out of temple again, write on you: the name and the city of God (the new Jerusalem thar comes out of Heaven), and His new name
7.Give you the right to sit with Jesus on His throne like Jesus who conquered (how did He conquer?) and sit down with His Father on His throne.
