Welcome Home

            Welcome back to the Logan Martin church of Christ; welcome back home.  As we celebrate our 2012 Homecoming we welcome you to our services on this first day of the week and our gospel meeting through Wednesday night.

            The congregation at Logan Martin portrays qualities that should be found in every godly home and we pray that you find it so in your visit with us.

LOVE – One of the most often heard compliments about the Logan Martin church of Christ is the love shown one to another.  This is a characteristic that has been true throughout the years and continues today.  Jesus said that it was through these acts that the world would know that we belong to Him: By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another (John 13:35).

LABOR – “Many hands make light the work” is a quote that is true and is practiced by the Logan Martin church of Christ.  The brethren work and work diligently.  There is much work performed about which is known, but there is more, much more, which is known only by a very few and sometimes only God.  The community not only sees the love shown one to another but also the good works performed by the brethren.  Let us continue to pray for and encourage each other as we labor together for the cause of Christ. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

LAUGHTER – Sometimes we laugh with one another and other times we laugh at one another (both are great times).  Christians really do (and should) laugh while enjoying the abundant life.  If anyone, in this life may laugh, it is the child of God.  The faithful child of God knows that when this life ends, eternity in Heaven begins: eternity with God; eternity with all the saints of all the ages; eternity where the cares and concerns of this world exist no more.  Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God (Psalm 146:5).

LEANING – Every day is not a day of laughter; every event is not a time of joy.  Some times are difficult; some times are trials; sometimes we are weak and need to be strengthened; sometimes we need a hand up after a fall.  The Logan Martin family shows great concern for her fellow members.   Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep (Romans 12:15).  Of course the ultimate strength is from God but often times through the faithful child of God.

I pray that Logan Martin will always be a place where these attributes are found through which glory is given to God.  Enjoy yourself at the Logan Martin 2012 Homecoming and please make yourself at home.
