Thank You!

To the “Smyrna Church of Christ,” I’d like to “thank you” for prayers on my behalf! It has been a rough four months; however, I’m getting better….it may be a couple of weeks until I make it back. I do miss church and Bible study! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen elders and Bible teachers that are so “Christ-like” and teachers that are so studious and prepared to teach! The congregation is fortunate to have leadership of that caliber! God bless all of you!!! Duane Hill

 

Thank You!

Thank you for all the cards and prayers you have sent these past 2 1/2 years of my Dad’s life. He was always uplifted when he read a card. Also, thank you for the kind expressions of sympathy at his passing. It’s comforting to have such loving friends in this church family. Thank you for the lovely framed picture-poem. Deanna Liddle

The Smyrna church food pantry is in need of a volunteer to help coordinate a food bag program for John Coleman Elementary.

Inspiring Each Other to Glorify Christ by Growing, Connecting & Reaching

The Church is God's spiritual family. It is made up of all those who have chosen to place their trust and faith in Jesus and who are His followers (disciples). The Church is not a building or one particular group of believers. To belong to the Church, is to belong to Jesus. The Bible uses the analogy that Jesus is the Head of the Church, which is His body. God's will is for the Church to gather regularly to worship its Head, Jesus, to use its various gifts and abilities to serve its Head, to love and encourage those who are in the body, and to work diligently to maintain the unity of the body. It is expected that every member of the church will assemble for worship on each Lord's day and participate in the sharing of the Lord's supper, which is a central part of the worship service. The whole church family invests in the spiritual growth of each other, especially our children and teens. Therefore we believe the assembly of the saints should take precedence over all other activities so that all will be edified and our youth will grow in admonition of the Lord. Church should be a hospital for the hurting. A place to turn to - seeking guidance and peace from sin and sorrow - not a place to be condemned. Church is where we should all turn for reconciliation. As the members of His Church love one another and maintain unity of purpose and relationship, the world around us will recognize that we belong to Jesus. The Church or body is to seek to do the will of God, which also includes loving and saving the world through Jesus Christ. The church is guided by the Word of God.
